Do go ahead and book online. I already had a ressie at rack rate too and spent well over an hour on the phone last night trying to cancel it so I'd be sure to be able to book online this morning. Never could get thru to anyone last night tho and so I still have my original ressie. I went online and it let me book a new reservation, no problem. I'll call and cancel the original just as soon as the phone lines settle down.

They gave you a 10% discount off that to get to your $1069.70.
I think that's the first post I've read that has finally solved the ticket price mystery -- thanks!

Thanks for the reply! Question - when you booked the new ressie, were you logged in to your WDW account? I wasn't sure if it would let me do that since we already have existing for the same dates, names - kwim (meaning, maybe I would need to book while not logged in if that makes sense?).

You are welcome. No, I did not log in for that very reason. I don't know for sure if it would have made a difference. But I figured I'd play it safe. I had no problems whatsoever. Good luck. Hope you are able to get the room you want.

Or you could just wait until the system is back up again. I seriously doubt all the rooms at this discount will be gone in a day or two.

People panic too easy.

I called again to see if their system was back up. When I found out it wasn't, I was going to get off the phone and leave it at that. The CM asked if I had any other questions. I thought that since I had him on the phone, I would double check to make sure the info the girl gave me earlier was correct. I asked if I would have to rebook to get the discount, or if since it included discount parks tickets, it could just be applied to my current reservation. The first girl I talked to said that since the offer included discount park tickets, it could be applied to my current reservation. The second person I talked to said that I would have to cancel that reservation and do a new room only one. Does anyone know which one is right?

It took the second guy a while to find the information. He said that he was making sure to find the correct information. He didn't want to give out incorrect information because people wouldn't want to keep coming to Disney World if they kept getting incorrect information from the employees. I joked back that if people stop going to Disney World every time they got incorrect information from a cast member, especially bus drivers, the parks would practically be empty.

No room only discount for POR preferred room. Preferred POR 2A 2C AAA discount is $1792.14 from April 14-April 22. The new discount is $1527 for river view. Called CM and no discount on tickets or meal plan as of yet. Keeping my AAA discount unless preferred rooms become available.

When I priced it out online, my Stay Play and Dine deal is better for the first week in March so I am staying put.

Good luck everyone!

I already did this once when I found out POFQ wouldn't be included in the deal (THANK YOU DANNY25!!!!) ... now booked again with the discount in POR King Bed because I didn't want to chance that all the King rooms allowed in the discount in POR would/could be gone.
POFQ is available with this discount!!! I have 3 rooms booked with the Disney Visa promo and just tried to book a room with the public one online- it gave me the discount (I was just checking since I'm already booked). If you want POFQ- it should be no problem. CM on the phone told me it just isn't listed separately from POR b/c technically, they are considered the same resort- different sides

Us too but the gal I talked to kept stressing to call back if I saw any other offers such as free dining.....I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

We'll be there at the same time!

If you book a AoA LM room... do your tickets get discounted at least or no?

It is included, but it is only 5% off, not 25% like POR. The ticket discount is the same, irregardless of the resort.

They are two seperate resorts, the reason why it prob isnt listed is that its not much of a deal. I just looked and you are right it does apply but on an 11 day 10 night stay with park hoppers we would only save $237 .... we are saving $700 at Riverside for the same booking.

Off the room only portion we would only save $122 .... less than 5%.

Savings are savings though but for us that just doesnt make sense.
