Thank you for the scoop!!! I hope when the booking window opens there is availability to apply this to our existing ressies.

BUT, please, guys, give him a bit of a break. If you want to know how much this is going to save you, you can figure this out yourself.

Go to the webpage, plug in your Vacation, include tickets. That will give you your total cost.

Then remove the tickets (there is a link beside the tickets, says "remove this") That will give you your room cost. Now, apply a 30% or 25 or 20. Whatever you like, it depends on the resort and while Danny might come back with specifics per resort, we still don't need him to do the calculations.

That will tell you what you are saving on your rooms, then recalculate the cost of your tickets based on the schedule Danny provided, add that to the cost of your room.

Now compare and contrast.

Here is our Example, Booked at French Quarter May 5-15
Total cost with park hopper = 3300.66

Room Only 2452
Ticket Cost 848

Apply 30% to room, hoping this applies to Moderate

Room = 1716.40
Tickets 652.00

Total = 2368.40
Savings= 932.20
Great example for people! Once Danny gave me the discount for my room and answered my question as to whether the discount tickets would work with my RO PIN then I figured out our cost as well.

I usually look up the seperate prices for the room, tickets, and dining plan from third party websites and then try to calculate for tax. Your way is a little easier though! I always hated that WDW the site didn't itemize the costs but it probably is easier to figure out than my method! However, here are some other sites I like that people can use as well if they want to try to calculate numbers:

Resort prices (remember to add 12.5% tax):http://www.mousesavers.com/2013-walt...-season-dates/

Dining Plan costs (include 6.5% tax): http://www.wdwinfo.com/disney-dining...htm#prices2013

Ticket costs (include 6.5% tax): http://yourfirstvisit.net/wp-content...ket-Prices.jpg

In the end, when I did the math, the new promotion will be more than what I got with my RO PIN at AKL. If I switch resorts it might save me quite a bit more but that's the case with my RO PIN as well.

Hi my friend, yes you must book at least 1 room and then you can buy the discounted tickets, I have been watching the room prices and the discount vary too much from one resort to other in some cases the saving is only in the tickets and the room price is only 5 % discounted but in others is up to 30 % ok

I think I just did the math and did it using a 25% for POFQ standard room, I will be saving about 580.00 over the whole package. Not as good as stay play dine or free dining but it is something!

Sorry one more question, if POFQ is one resort with the smaller discount how do I know which has the bigger discount I might switch resorts?

We've already booked at Coronado Springs for March 29-Apr 4th, with park hoppers and the dining plan. Do I just call our travel agent and get her to apply the discounts.. whatever they are?

Thanks for this!

Danny,
Will the room discount percentages not be published until the discount releases? It looks like a 25% discount off a moderate would be equal to what we are paying for our value rooms. We have ressies March 23-28 so I don't expect to see percentages that high for that week.
