This is correct.

If a discount comes out, let's say room-only, and I already have a reservation for a package (in June- woo hoo!!!), could I get that discount off the price of my package?
Hoping for free dining but would love ANY discount!

Yes, you can apply the discount. However, as some people have experienced here already, if the price has changed between your original booking and when you try to apply the discount, the discount will be applied on the current price of your vacation, not on the price that you booked at.

Hope this helps !

It's just a speculation based on the website going down for scheduled maintenance, which it did before the other offers were released. I don't personally think anything is coming - they are doing a HUGE system changeover that day as well... and I think that's part of it.

Yes, you can apply the room discount to the room portion of your stay

Sort of. Prices are released for 2013 and aren't changing. Example: booking today for October 10 - 13 or booking in April for the same dates will get you the same price because it is based on the dates you are going, not the dates you are booking.

The only issue with the price change is with the S/P/D discount - there was a glitch which allowed people to book for cheaper and Disney honored the price. But if you go to make a change, they will correct the price (which makes it higher).

Free Dining would be great through the 22nd, we check in on the 21st, so I could snag that! S/P/D works like that too, right? If we check in before the last day, it's good for our entire vacation?

The bolded part above is exactly what happened to us.

About a week ago I moved my entire vacation up two days (only the dates changed not length of the vacation)... I too had previously taken advantage of the SPD discount.

When changing my dates, I was quoted a higher price for my vacation... I had a feeling this might happen as I had read about some other DISers having this same problem. However, I was pretty persistent with the CM...asking why my price would go up when all I was doing was changing the dates (coming in and leaving two days earlier in Feb).

She asked me to hold while she got some help (twice actually) and by the end of the phone conversation I had my original (lower) vacation price and was able to change my dates!! Yay!

Just wanted to put it out there that you may be able to make a slight change to your original SPD vacation and still keep the lower price from when they had the glitch.

I don't think anything is coming. They're doing a big reboot on the reservations system as well. I think it's probably all just tied in together.

Still holding out hope that we hear something about new discounts soon, although losing hope that today is the day .

Yep, there's almost always rumours by now, if it's happening. I think it's just a system upgrade.

As much as I would like to see a new discount, I don't think it will happen until after December 31st, when the current discounts expire. That is how it usually works.
