Canadians - Can you find the deals?

I have to say I'm not impressed with how Disney lists their discounts online these days.

When we log in from a Canadian IP address we don't see the deals everyone else does.

Can someone in the US please post the links to each of the new deals?

Thanks!!

Hmm ... Ok I'm up north as well. I have to admit that I'm not sure what deals that might be accessible from US IP vs those from a Canadian IP?

Is there a particular one you might be aware of?

That's because the deals that opened to the general public this morning (package discount, room only discount), previously they were only for Disney Visa card members, are not open to Canadians at this point. They don't post the deals on the Canadian website when the deals aren't open to Canadians.

From your usual Disney World main page look in the bottom left corner. There's a popup menu that lets you choose any international version of the page including US-English. Once loaded choose Special Deals and you should be able to book from there.

This is correct! THANK YOU. My previous post was not clear now that I've read it again. When I stated "not open to Canadians" what I meant was Disney was not yet promoting it to Canadians (it's not on the Canadian website) but you can still call and book it or book it through the US website. As a matter of fact the US website is currently only showing the room-only special but people are calling in and booking the Stay, Play and Dine discount by phone. Having said that...From time to time their are specials that are restricted by residency.

EDIT: Disney has just added the Stay, Play, Dine special to the US website...

It's up on the Disney.ca site now. And we also can still book free dining up to December 20, 2012. I am really glad to see that, I hope there continues to be different options for Canadians.

And don't forget that last year when they first opened the free-dining offer for the general public for August 19th, 2012 - late September 2012 they initially only offered it to Canadians (other than those that got the bounce back offer while at WDW)

YUP!!! I am really hoping for free dining in August 2013. The fact that Canadians are still getting something 'different' gives me some hope that this still might happen. I am not sure we would stay on site without the free dining.

Why don't you just go onto the Us website yourself? Instead of using the Canadian one, just use the US one. Easier than making someone else have to post everything. As a Canadian, you are banned from entering a US site. I never use the Canadian site (cause I actually didn't know there was a difference). Just go between the 2.

Pretty sure this is a typo(??) I have never used the Canadian site. My default WDW web site is the US one.
