I only see "enjoy lower rates", but nothing under the 35% off rates. Which makes me believe the rates would go even lower then the "enjoy lower rates" prices. I am new to AP so it seems like 2 different promotions to me.

There have been very few AP deals higher than 35% in the last year. The beginning of the year has seen some closer to 40%, but this will probably be it for spring.

You can always book with the current rate and if, by some miracle, they release better ones you can call and apply it to your reservation.

Hahaha! Yeah, I just chalk it up to paying for the "experience" and try not to think too hard about it!

Not only no 40% discounts, but the discounts that they are giving is getting very selective. In the past a % off a certain level resort (i.e. deluxe) included all the resorts and now only certain ones get the higher discount.

Me too....

I'm stalking the AP rates as well....new to the whole AP thing and would love to get another visit in to get my money's worth out of it.

But can't seem to find any "substantial" discounts under the AP. I've only been searching online. Is it easier to call and just ask them what they have or do you the Central Booking folks not really know what is there?

Ugh - so frustrating. It's burning a hole in my pocket but I can't seem to justify going back again yet since I'm such a Disney snob and really want Deluxe (but might try a moderate)....without a good rate, so far not looking positive. But might try AOA or a moderate....maybe.....unless they give me a rate I can't refuse!!
