Hey there! We are planning our first Christmas trip 12/2-12/8. Planning to stay at POP unless I get a pin or the (hopeful) discount is better. Fingers crossed!

Hi there! We're going Dec 21 - 28!!! From what I understand, as long as your first day falls in the discount timeframe, the whole stay will be discounted?

We've booked AoA (little mermaid room)

That used to be true but that was changed a few years ago.

Changing my dates. Because of Pop Warner week. So my new dates are Tuesday, December 3 until Tuesday, December 10th. Staying at Pop century.

For all the ones that are waiting for discount or pins --- Remember Aug the new prices come out and also 2014 dates are out. In the past price increase is any where from 2 to 5% higher in prices.

If you can you need to book so when the new prices come out you will LOCKED in on the 2013 prices.

You will still get pins and offers even if you have booked. AND always remember when you book ask the CM do you have a pin on your account.

So I am new on here and a little clueless. What is a pin code? Is it the same as a discount? I usually get e-mails for different discounts such as save 30%, if you book travel dates x to y. They haven't released any discounts yet for December so that is what we are waiting for correct? Sorry if this is stupid but it is my first trip to WDW that I have had to plan!

Also, anyone on here flying out of Cleveland, Youngstown, Akron or Pittsburgh? We would like a nonstop flight but it seems that Cleveland and Youngstown are the only ones that have nonstop. Cleveland is about $420/person roundtrip and Youngstown is cheaper but they are only showing flights through October and they only fly to Orlando a couple days a week. Anyone have any advice on when I should purchase flights for the best possible deal?

Thanks in advance!

We are flying out of Akron/Canton. Look at Southwest or Airtran. They each have a few non stop flights a day. It isn't open through Dec yet. Only until Nov 1. I believe they are supposed to open the first few weeks of Dec on May 6th.

First off welcome to the Dis. A pin is a discount code given to someone to use for a trip to WDW. It is a discount only available to the recipient.

As for airports; I am from the Canton/Massillon area and fly out of Hopkins in Cleveland or Akron/Canton airport. Ak/C airport does have nonstop to Orlando thru Airtran but they wont release dates after October until May. Im also keeping an eye on flights and I'm also finding prices to be the same as you.

Southwest has non-stop flights from Pittsburgh. However, there are no flights for your dates yet. They should be out May 6.

Discounts can be added later

don't hold off booking your resort. you can always add the discounts as they occur. we've never had a pin code in over 20 years, but we often take advantage of % discounts that come, no matter how late. I book our resort a full 11 months in advance because it's important you have a resort confirmation number when you book your ADR.Then proceed with the ADRs at 180 days.The resort cancellation policy is very liberal, so no worries there. I book our airline a couple months in advance and always get insurance because the weather can be brutal in December in Illinois. Just go for it!

Great advice! I might just do that. Do new prices always come out in August or will they do it before then? I wasn't really waiting on a pin but I was waiting until they announced their December special before booking which is usually in August according to mousesavers.

So are you saying that if they have 20% off a resort they will take 20% off your existing room rate (2012/2013) instead of 20% off the new room rate?

Thanks!

The new room rates will be for 2014 only. The current 2013 rates were set last year. Ticket prices do go up usually in August and it goes into effect shortly after the announcement. The effective date is always on a Sunday. Last year they did it June, though. If you book a 2013 package now, you will be locked in at the current ticket price, but if you make any changes to your reservation after the ticket increase goes into effect, you will have to pay the increase amount. This also holds true for adding a promotion code if one becomes available after the increase goes into effect.
