What I find interesting is that few of the other DVC resorts have 2BR availability for 11 months from now.. of.our choices, BLT, then AKL, then VWL, only BLT is showing availability at the 11 month mark right now.

We're booked at CR with TPV, and if we can't get one of the three villas above, preferably with the military discount, we'll keep the CR rooms and be thrilled.
I know!! I'm trying to convince myself that I'm being patient! I wish we had another option, but we'd need 3 TPV tower rooms which would run us about $3000 more than the BLT 2 bedroom. Fingers crossed!!

For 2nd trip I found airfare first then had to check every day until I got dates I wanted. Then last Nov I had a 1brm but kept checking and finally got our first 2bdrm booked in July.

This time I kept checking and got in for a cash ressie at VGF

The good stuff is hard to come by but die hards get what we want
SOOOO glad to know our obsession is understood, warranted, and will hopefully pay off Once I finally get this reservation, I too am hoping to apply an AP discount.

Yeah, Mrs. Psac took the pic, and she got pics with Mickey, Goofy, Pluto and even one with a duck who didn't have any pants on!! Very scandalous.

Overall we liked Chef Mickey's. Very expensive for what you get, but good character interaction with the big ones -- you're obviously not just paying for the food. We really liked the food itself, but $75 for two adults is a bit harsh! (We may have been caught in holiday pricing.). Good thing we weren't there when the glass broke!

With all the construction talk at the poly for 2014 we have decided for our week stay at the CR...with maybe two nights at GF if we can secure a villa! LOL

I am thinking of booking the garden wing but just wondered if anyone knew if they are normally included with the room only discounts or free dining?? I am thinking room only would work out cheaper for us but not sure if they are included usually in the discounts.

thanks

Because of this thread I am pretty excited to stay here for our next trip and first week onsite!!!!

I was able to secure garden wing with 40% off for next August (2014), so they are definitely included! Good luck!

I dont think general public will be forty but fingers crossed it will be 35% off! I know tpv is excluded for the fall ones so I was wondering if garden wing is excluded.

Garden Wing is included in free dining. We'll be there Sept 21-27 and were able to get free dining.

I know this is only speculation, but when the Sept-Dec RO discount thread was started, it showed which resorts were included under each discount and CR TPV and CL were only falling under 5%, with others falling under 20% and 30% (although it didn't specify which room types went with which discount, other than TPV and CL...it only stated "certain rooms"). The thread has since been modified and no longer shows this information, so it's anybody's guess which room types will reflect which discounts. Before this thread came out, I decided to go with CR CL BLV, but now may rethink that if the discount is only 5%. My DH really wants to try the CR and I was so looking forward to trying CL or at least getting a TPV, so now to decide whether to just book what I want and take the little bit of savings I can get, or change room types (should tower BLV be offered with a higher discount) and save a little more .

I just looked back at my CR CL BLV reservation from last December 1-3, it looks like we had a 20% discount, which I think was all the CR was getting during the Fall Season. Now when we went in Feb, Value Season, we got had a 37% discount, but we did not stay CL, just TPV. So it just goes to show, that you never know exactly what is going to be offered at which discount.

Yes. Between the food and Wine Festival and the Halloween/Christmas parties, the fall has become a much more popular time to visit. So Disney doesn't need to work as hard to fill their resort rooms (especially the resorts close to MK and Epcot).

You are so right . I've priced out the different room categories with varying discounts so I can (hopefully) make a decision when it comes time to book, although I think that no matter which resort/room type I choose, I will constantly be second guessing it .

If the predictions for the discounts are correct, the Poly is only 20%....it's not a lot, but I guess it is something (and it's better than 5%). With that said, I really wasn't counting on any discount as our Poly stay is 12/22-12/24, so any kind of discount for those 2 nights is a bonus for us .
