Got through and we are now booked!!! I am so excited! I was only on hold for 5 or so minutes the third time I called. First two times all circuits were busy. Got a very friendly CM, booked for AoA Lion King suite for April 14-19, saved about $400 from rack rates (room and tickets). Yippee! Thank you to the OP for bringing this to our attention!

Easter week - I got 5% at the mods for my first two nights and rack rate the rest of the week, so I could save $100. Augh - we don't have a choice on dates since my boys are marching in the MK on Palm Sunday.

Last August we were only able to get 5% discount on our trip, which amounted to about $70. I figured that was $70 we could use toward something else.

ok, she put me on hold and spoke to Guest Services and came back and said I would save about $400 total (package total before discount $3400). But i need to pay $200 on my disney visa to do it and the card is maxxed out at the moment (oops!).

Does anyone know if that info is correct? I swear I've heard in the past that you didn't need to use it, just have one. What if my entire trip was already paid off - would i Have to cancel it and then re-book with the Disney visa???

that's my understanding too... to get the Disney Visa discount, you have to put the deposit on that card.

we already did our deposit last month on Disney Visa, so hopefully they won't have me do another $200, but if they do, that'll be just fine to get the discount. (I'm at 86 minutes still on hold .....UGH.)

nope, she just said I need to make a $200 payment now. But I still wonder, what if I was already paid in full and hadn't used the DV?

They would have made you cancel the previous and rebook. They were sticklers abt verifying disney visa holders.
