Of course this year we' re going 15-21! At least we got a bounce back.

I was told it was 8/23-9/2. I had put my request in on a Thursday afternoon and got my quote Friday morning. I didn't choose a specific agent but the one I am assigned to is awesome. I got my confirmation number and I am able to pull up my reservation on Disney's website

I went back to the website and they're showing another exclusive for 8/3-8/10 so I requested a quote for that time but gave our ideal dates of 8/15-21. Waiting to see what they come back with.

Do these great Magical Vacation discounts only apply to the Beach Club? Anything for value resorts?

I would choose Michele. She's really nice and she told me she is the only one of all the agents who can book these agency-exclusive deals, so she will know right away if something is sold out.

And yes, they are very busy with all the requests going through, but they are legit.

I requested my quote Saturday afternoon. I didn't think I would hear back before today but I still don't have anything. I am starting to wonder if the promo is sold out for my dates (week before labor day).

I saw your dates were for mid August. Were you able to get the great rates that everyone else did?

I requested a quote on Sunday morning and am waiting to hear back. I have a BB booked but may not be able to go that late because my oldest DD is not sure where she i going to college and when she will have to start. I am exploring my options since I am one of those "no pin ever "people.Once IO get a quote back, how soon would I have to book and do they have a refund/cancellation policy? I'm so up in the air right now! FD is the best deal for my family so I'd really rather get a pin but whatever I do they never come.

I was not given any timeline or pressure to book - and I e-mailed back and forth for a while, asking for different quotes and trying to figure out my dates. But that was last week, and they may be running out of rooms more quickly now. Hard to say for sure.

The refund/cancellation policy is the same as booking directly through Disney (no penalty for cancellation until 45 days out).

I love FD too, and am hoping for either a PIN or a public offer. But this deal is so great - and there's no monetary penalty for cancelling - so I booked it just in case. And staying deluxe would be exciting!

For those who have requested quotes and didn't hear back, my two cents: When I put in my quote request I got an automatic e-mail reply thanking me for my interest and telling me they would get back to me soon. When I hadn't gotten anything further after 48 hours, I replied to that e-mail and said I still hadn't gotten my quote, and asked for a timeline of when they might get back to me. I got my quote just a short time later. So a nudge may be worth your time.

I didn' t get a deal for my current dates (have free dining bounce back, but it doesn't cover our whole trip) but the quote for 8/3-8/9 was about $900 off rack rate at Beach Club.
