Discounts?

Are there every any discounts offered for staying at FW? I know they don't do free dining, but I wondered if they ever offered PIN codes for he campers?
We're looking at going the last week of August (next year) and just wondered if they every offered any deals like they do at other resorts? (yes I know I'm rushing it planning 18 months ahead, can't help myself)

Yes, there are occasional discounts on the sites which include AAA, AP, Disney Visa, etc. They are not huge discounts, but every little bit helps. Also, they are very limited, so can not always get one, even when they say they are offered. We do have a AAA discount for our site in April.

For the cabins, there are usually more discounts, but again usually a limited number available at the discounted rate. You just have to keep checking back, and call when you see offers. Good luck!

As for pin codes, we've never had one in all our years of camping at FW.

Do keep trying to get discounts applied to exising reservations.

I kept trying without success and finally struck gold on a AAA discount on my upcoming Fort stay (site only). Got 15% off and I'll take it - every little bit helps.

Personally I've rarely gotten a pin offer or bounceback. I wonder if the pins are only offered (when offered) on the cabins.

The AAA discount is enough for us to justify the cost of the annual membership.

I had to try a few times myself for the aaa on the site type I wanted (preferred). Saved $200 so definitely worth it!
