AAA discounts anywhere in the parks?

I have AAA for the 1st time and am wondering if we can use that anywhere in the parks or Dtd for any type of discount?

I don't believe so. I think the only real perks at the parks are the Wishes viewing location at MK and the Storytime in EPCOT. The Diamond parking pass is nice too. I'm pretty sure you have to book through AAA also to get those perks. They gave us a packet with some different coupons for discounts at different restaurants and recreational experiences with our travel documents, but I don't recall anything where you just walk up and flash the AAA card to get a discount.

We've always gotten a small AAA discount at DTD Earl of Sandwich. Better than nothing!

I think the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot gives a AAA discount.

As with any potential discount - I always ask everywhere! Even if I think the answer is going to be no - it doesn't hurt to ask.

MouseSavers has a list of AAA discounts in and around WDW: http://www.mousesavers.com/walt-disn...s-coupons/#aaa

We've also used our AAA card for 10% off at Earl of Sandwich, but it's not listed anymore on the MouseSavers pages, so I would ask.

Wolfgang Puck Express at the Marketplace gives a 10% discount. Just show your card.

We did this in August. (We also bought giftcards for WGP from Costco, $79.99for $100 GC.)

This is a GREAT deal (the AAA discount and the gift cards from Costco). We did this same thing Sunday.

I received 15% off at EoS yesterday with my AAA card.

House of Blues 20% Discount

We have used our AAA card at the House of Blues for the last 2 summers and received a 20% discount. Food is pretty good there.
