Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

Does anyone know if Disney release free dining for early March? It's still a long way away but I'm hoping to go in 2015 and I'm looking at maybe staying at Disney for the week around my birthday (so 4-11th probably). Hoping it's not going to be mega crowded!

And, another positive vibe to add is that last Easter 2012 crowds were a lot lower than the traditional Easter crowds. None of the parks closed due to full capacity, not sure if they were even close. We were also upgraded at both of our resorts, BC and WL, and the CM's told us the resorts had a lot of empty rooms. So we'll look forward to Easter 2013 and see if disney tries to fill some rooms.

That is definitely great to hear. We are arriving on Easter Sunday. Then again, just by following most of the recommendations from easywdw.com we were very successful in WDW during Christmas week. I even have a photo of an empty Magic Kingdom on 12/30 at 10:30am. Even at noon there was only a 15 minute wait for the teacups, and 20 for POTC.

A discount would be amazing, fingers crossed.

I am booking my ADR's on Friday for our Easter week vacation. I have my fingers crossed that a great discount will become available.

We went all in for our vacation and am hoping for some pixie dust. 2/28-3/8 at the poly, with dining. ADR's have been made. Just banking on that slower first week of march to trim the cost of this mega expensive vacation....or not

This is my first time staying on site, so this is my first time having to wait it out for a discount! It isn't that fun!

We are currently booked for May 2013 but yesterday our travel agent emailed me and said rumors are out about early 2013 discounts and asked me what daughter's spring break dates are.. Is there hope for something great for March? I hope so!

Edited to add that the discount has already been released to Disney visa cardholders and it only goes to March 7th. Doesn't work for us unfortunately.

Booked March 4 - 11
POR Standard View Royal Guest Room
2 adults, 1 child
8 day base park tickets
Plus dining plan
$2,995.15.

Saved $688.17 based on website rates.

Not as good as free dining (which would be a little over an $200 additional savings), but I'll take it!

I couldnt help but notice your dates went past the 7th... did they honor the package until the 11th? Or are you paying rack rates for those days?

I have a Disney Visa, how come I didn't hear about this??

If you already have a reservation can you call and get it changed to take advantage of this offer? Our dates are Mar 1 - 9 so it would cover most of our trip!

Thank goodness for the DIS!!
