ANY Little Mermaid room discounts?

I know they are not included in the current Spring discount, not are they included in the 2 PIN numbers I have. AAA is checking for me but doesn't think they get a discount either. I don't necessarily need one, but am wanting to compare the discount, if any, to the other prices. Right now I can stay at a nicer moderate for the price of Mermaid, or the suite for way more than a moderate (huh?!).

Anyone have luck with discount for mermaid?

No. They don't need a discount to fill those rooms.

?..

So far, no luck on this end either....but I've about talked myself into something else, plus our group size is probably be an "awkward" 7...kinda makes it a bit more challenging to plan things....(a challenge that I look forward to though!)

I'm a CM and I know for our consistent 50/40% off it is not included in those discounts but we do get the discounts on the suites.

I was all set to stay in a LM room next month since I will be solo and I am on a quest to stay at all of the resorts.

Then I realized that for $6 LESS I could stay at CBR..... So, I switched. I have since thought about the LM rooms and decided since those buildings were built when Pop was built, and therefore basically the same as Pop rooms, that I would hold off on my AoA stay until staying in a suite makes sense, or until I can stay in a LM room for the same amount as a Pop room.

I'm assuming the reason why they don't discount the LM rooms is because they are having no trouble booking the rooms.

So until the 'new resort' aspect wears off, I doubt we will see LM discounts.

On the other hand, the AoA suites consume 7 buildings and probably have some availability. This would lead to a discount.

Absolutely!!! With there being only 3 blgs that have regular rooms and those rooms being all Little Mermaid theme, there is little to no need for Disney to offer discounts on them. The only reason Disney offers discounts are to benefit Disney!!! They have rooms empty?? They offer discounts!! LM rooms are always filled. I'm heading down in late May/early June. My 19 y/o dd has been hoping to stay in a LM room since she first heard about them. Well, there was absolutely no way I was paying for that room for the entire stay. I ended up booking Music for the first 5 days, and adding AoA/LM for the last two nights. Music is costing me about $87 a night/ $126 for a weekend night, LM is $173 for Sat night, $148 for Sunday night!!! That's just crazy!!

The Little Mermaid rooms are awesome! I recently stayed there and loved it. They certainly don't have trouble booking up these rooms. Here is a video I took of our room: http://youtu.be/H1Gnima3Abg
