So she updated our package w/ the Disney visa promo (I didn't even have to give her a code) and it went from $ 6832.14 down to $ 5922.92!! Savings of $ 909.22!! That was SOOOOO worth waiting all morning for!
WOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!! Congrats!! You made me LOL about getting freaked out hearing a human voice..........

Thank you!! I'm sure the woman thought I was nuts... I was like "OMG, please don't hang up, I've been waiting 3 hours!" she couldn't believe it. she said they've been absolutely slammed!

For everyone still waiting, it's totally worth the wait!

I was only on hold about 10 minutes on the TA line. Was only a $46 savings for my client who already had the PIN code. Mouse savers says its a room and ticket discount, so maybe that's the difference? Also might explain the poster who said the tickets appeared to be cheaper. Ahh, the mystery of discounts. :-)

CM Having a hard time

I am on now with reservations and the CM is having a hard time getting the computer to take the Visa code with the tix we want. Officially been working with her for an hour! She is really nice and just as frustrated. This could explain the long hold times ...

She went to get some help but it looks like we will save @ $600 for the room at POR for 9 nights. So, definitely worth the wait.

POFQ is not listed on DV site in the chart BUT it also is not listed as excluded down in the fine print it only says Excluded: campsites 3 bdrm villas and Disney AOA Little Mermaid std rooms. My agent is checking this for me now

Hmm, I have Stay, Play and Dine booked for 3/4 to 3/8. I wonder if this would be cheaper?

Just got off the phone...was on maybe 25 minutes total. I have fourteen nights reserved at CBR starting May 19 and I saved $910 on room/tix. (I didn't have her break it down for me...she sounded tired already.) This was a modification of an existing reservation that I had used a debit card for the down payment. CM just charged an additional $200 to my DV so I could get the discount.

woo hoo! Only waited about 3 minutes, then talked to someone! Earlier this am, I was on hold for over an hour, finally decided to hang up and try again later - so glad I did! We are staying 5/28-6/7 at POR in a RGR, and our 10 night MYW package with 10 day park tickets and dining went from $5298.32 to $4535.32 - a $763 savings. When I asked how much each portion was, she said it just showed up as a package savings, and it was not broken down into separate portions. From the original post about the upcoming discount, I though we would save close to $700, but this ends up being more - woo hoo! Glad my math was wrong to our advantage! Good luck all!

Can anyone confirm if this is just for disney visa credit cardholders, or disney visa debit cardholders too? I'm on hold but I'd hate to sit on hold for hours just to find I don't qualify (disney visa debit, here)

About an hour from start to finish, with about 30 min of hold time, but booked! Saved 15% on 4 nights in May at POR with DDP and 4 day park hoppers in a preferred room.
Really wanted POFQ, but all that was available with promotion was a room overlooking the pool that would have been an additional $300.

After being told this morning that I couldn't add the dining plan and being quoted rack rate, I called back during my lunch hour. I was on hold, modified my reservation and took the survey and the phone call lasted 19 minutes and 52 seconds. (looked at the call time on my cell phone).

Before applying the promo, our vacation totaled: $4771.74

After applying the promo total: $4,134.75

Total saved: $636.99!


Our existing reservation was not booked with the Disney Visa but the castmember was able to modify our reservation by applying a $200.00 Disney Visa payment to the balance owed.

My mother has a reservation as does my daughter but neither have a Disney Visa. The castmember said that I could make a $200 Disney Visa payment on each of their reservations and they would get the discount as well. I'll talk it over with everybody this evening and decide whether or not to wait until January 3rd to modify or go ahead and change their reservations now.

I forgot to add that the castmember said that I was the first one to call her today about the Disney Visa promotion. She said that their phone lines are "messed up because of the snow". I don't know where she was located but that could be part of the problem with the phones.

Thanks everyone for this info. No email for me but it is on my credit card website.

Can't get through though, all circuts are busy. Would I still get the discount for March 21,22 and 23 along with the ticket discount. I'll take any discount right now with the way the taxes are going to increase next year
