Doing the play/stay/dine package for 8 nights at POR. Ended up saving $890. Not free dining, but about 5 days close to it.

Switched discounts and added dining. They didn't have royal rooms.

Room only discounts in 7 nights royal room 4 adults, 5 day tickets no dining was going to be 2,484.

MYW discount- 7 nights, garden view, 5 tickets and dining 3,069.

When I priced out full price 7 nights garden view, 4 adults, 5 tickets and dining it was 4,355.60 Pretty good savings IMO

We're booked in a LM room for 2/1-2/9 for 2 adults and 1 child, 7-day base tickets, and DDP. Our original price was $2,878. The rate for us to change it to Pop would be $2,660. That's only a $228 discount. I even mentioned that I saw that someone else saved almost $600 on a very similar scenario but the CM couldn't come up with anything different or better.
Dates are key. They really do matter. The beginning of January (the poster before you) is the deadest time pretty much.. by the time your dates roll around, the crowd calendar I have access to indicates a much busier time..

Remember - these discounts are offered to fill rooms... if rooms are pretty well taken for your dates ... not much of a need to discount and so the discounts are considerably weaker.

ALSO - besides dates, discounts vary considerably by resort.. the LM rooms are in high demand and so its not terribly surprising they would be discounted less than others.

You should call back and check for different resorts (Pop Century for example) and I suspect you will see considerably different discounts.

Actually, the week we go is one of the lowest and among the lowest rack rates. I was checking for Pop Century when I got such a lousy offer. Hmm, I'm thinking I will try choosing different options when I call back and say I've never been there b/c Disney technically has no record of our previous vacations there - we bought tix from UT and stayed off-site. Wonder if that would make a difference.

Just booked POR for 2/8-2/16 with 5 day base tix and dining for $3211.58. A savings of $1112.95 vs online prices.

Free dining would have been $2853.09, so the current deal isn't as good as FD, but it's still a significant disount.

My first resort choice, CSR, was already booked . Hopefully we enjoy POR as much.

Yes, your dates make a HUGE difference. We're moving our dates up by 2 days because the last 2 days we were planning to be there were driving the cost WAY up. Room rates were $80+ more for those 2 nights. I checked several different resorts at both the moderate and value level and those 2 nights were more expensive across the board.

Do we know if/when these discounts will be released to the public? We have friends who are thinking of vacationing with us, but were waiting for a discount to run the numbers and decide if they could swing it, but I don't believe they are Disney Visa cardholders.
