Well there are discounts available...just not general public

I still haven't lost hope that there will be general public discounts for March dates (especially til the 23rd/24th.)

However, the week before Easter is more iffy.

Th agency I work with was able to get some group bookings from the 16th-30th, so that may be the route to go for a discount until those GP discounts arrive. Call your favorite Disney travel agent and see if they have any special discounts available to clients only. Just a thought.

These group discounts come with a different set of policies so you'll have to decide what's best for you. Tickets must be paid in full when they are added to a reservation ...or you can wait and add them to a room reservation later. Dining must be paid in full when added to a reservation which means if you want something like Cinderella's Royal Table and want to use dining credits you must pay for your meal plan well in advance of normal packages. But you might save $$ overall.

We're also booked 3/1-3/9 under Visa discount. 2br villa at WL so 25% off all but the last night. I called to get a quote for switching to AP discount but the amount quoted was slightly higher. I was confused because I thought it was supposed to be 37%? Anyone know or can check on that?

Different dates have different discounts. We've noted all over the rates boards that Disney is offering discounts at selected amounts at different resorts. It's like a sliding scale to fill each resort. Hard to figure. I also wouldn't give up home that if you called in 3 weeks you might get a different amount. (Although honestly at WL villas I doubt it. They stay pretty full. You are lucky to get a discount at all.)

We're booked 3-20 thru 3-28, Talked to cm at DR yesterday and he told me I had a pin attached to my name but it end on 3-7. He told me to keep checking back as I'm also a AAA & Visa holder. Hoping something covers some of our stay as even a couple hundred off would be nice. Free dining would be make me

I am hoping too. The AP rates and the pin codes that exist go through the 22nd and the 23rd, hopefully, a general public discount will come out for at least those dates. My dates are 3/21-3/31. A couple of discounted nights would be nice. An extension of the S/P/D to 3/21 would be even better!!!

Thoughts?

air from CA
5 day base tickets
4 nights POR
magic your way plus dining package

all of this for
1 adult and 2 kids (who pay adult rates for tickets and meals)

Total: $1428...

But you might save $$ overall.
Not sure what agency you use to get your group booking discount, but Magical Vacations Travel does not work this way with their Agency Exclusive discounts. Package deposit and final balance payment policy is the same as Disney's - $200 at booking, final balance due by 45 days prior to check-in (don't have to pay for tickets or dining in advance). Cancellation policy is actually more lenient than a regular Disney package - you can cancel up to 6 days prior to check-in to get a full refund. In other words, pay for it as though it were a package, cancel as though it were room-only. Sounds good to me!

They have discounts from March 10 - March 23 and March 24 - April 6.

I would double check your paperwork. Even if your TA's agency is doing a group offer, it's virtually impossible that the rate above would include your airfare.

Package discount (room and tickets, room and dining, or room, tickets and dining) on WL, BC or Poly standard rooms. Three night minimum stay needed.

Celebrating my DD 21 bday on 3/31 and haven't booked yet. Did get BOG reservation for 3/28 so that will be special. Hoping for a Disney discount as rates are high.

Pixie dust for everyone!

Doesn't airfare have to be paid in full upon booking? If you gave a credit card for a deposit maybe the TA took the deposit and air portion too. Then the $1428 would be the balance of the land portion? Just guessing. I agree that $1428 is way to low for what air and land.

If I were you, I'd check with the TA and also check your credit card to see what was charged. (if you gave them one)

Good Luck

But good luck getting that quote. I sent in a request on the 16th. They sent me an email acknowledging it, and...nothing! It isn't feeling very "magical" right now.
