Other options to keep costs down

I had no problem getting a discount off our ASMo resort in 2011 and 2012 and that's about the best I hope for to be honest. Using the Disney VISA, which I upped to the 2% return paid for our meals in December 2012 and its looking like it will pay for the resort as well when we go in 2013Along with the TIW card, we do nicely in getting a cost-effective annual trip and I don't sweat about pin codes (because I never seem to get one in 20 years of trips)The most difficult pieces to our trips are ADRs at Ohana's and the Terrace Dessert Party

It was either the 5th or 6th, can't remember - I'm not going to worry about it, it didn't look like the standard pin code emails I have gotten previously. It looked like it was more informative than anything - I know there was something on there about ordering a DVD.

I'm worried there be an issue with a discount for those dates as in the current BB offer my dates are complete blacked out, so I'm hoping that doesn't hinder public discounts.
Welcome!

Oh, don't worry, discounts for December have historically come out Jul-Aug timeframe. What I could find on Mousesavers.com was it looks like a free dining offer was offered for the first couple of weeks of December, then it looks like a 5 - 30% room discount follows up until a couple of days before Christmas. AP holders and FL residents have been able to get this discount right up to Christmas Eve.

There is also the option of using AAA, if you have a membership, that will usually provided, I think a 10 - 15% discount.

We will be there on Nov 30 - Dec 7th! Really excited - this is our 2nd time to be at Disney during the Christmas season, but our first ever stay on property. We are trying to go all out to make this the most magical vacation considering it will be the last vacation to Disney for us as a whole family (daughter will be going off to college in a few short years and we have a few other places we want to visit over the next couple years). It will also be our youngest 3 children's first time flying - so needless to say I am wanting to save a little money anywhere possible! Hoping for a free dining code for our family of 6...it would end up saving us a tremendous amount of money!

We are planning on a trip December 26-Jan 2nd. We stayed at AoA this last Christmas and I'm up for it again. But if there's a free dining or anything we'll upgrade our resort. Is there usually a code for that late into the year?

Add DH and I. We are looking to go Dec 4-9. Just the two of us. It will be our first Christmas trip. We can not wait. We just need a code.

Do they only do codes on moderate and deluxe or value resorts too? With a code on a moderate will it make it less than the value regular rates?
