Do Canadians ever receive pins?

We are frequent Canadian Disney World Visitors, Always stay on Site and we have never once rcv'd a code .

Are Canadians ever lucky?

Yes! I received 3 PINS last year! I created a profile, requested the planning videos and saved some vacations. I ended up booking through a TA, so I don't think it registered with Disney that I had already booked. I received three PIN codes before we had to pay off our balance. Each PIN saved us money and got us into an upgraded room.

We have a Disney profile already.
I have used it to book our vacations through for several years and nothing yet

Do you remember what they were for?

Thanks me too.. As they say "There's a first for everything"... I'm hoping that applies to this!

I'm going to have to save some vacations..maybe that will do the trick . I've never done that before. Just watch some prices and then book!

I just went thought my Disney email I use and I seem to get pins more then I thought. I get the odd ad but most are the unique pin code or dont forget to quote pin whatever the long sting of numbers. hope they send one again soon. My last one ended sept 28th so it wasn't any good to me. Do you think going much they don't send because they know you will come anyways. I've seen a good few posts of reg dis visitors saying they never get a pin. I went once and they are trying to reel me back with pin codes it seems!

We were booked at POFQ and the first PIN allowed us to upgrade to Gardenview and still save $215. The second PIN we had to move to POR (which we liked better anyway) in a Gardenview and saved an additional $200.

You could set up additional email addresses (yahoo, gmail, etc) and set up other profiles as well. Good luck!

For those Canadians receiving pins, what part of Canada are you from? I have a bad feeling that they are concentrating their marketing on the East and us Prairie people are out of luck.

We are regular Visitors...Every 3rd week of January! And some 3rd week of April trips too.
Except this year we did a Cruise instead that week in January!
Maybe if they see we've broken our Trend they may send us off one!
