Since I don't have a Disney Visa anymore, but I already have my package reserved at POR...I won't have any problems getting the discount on the 2nd, right? They don't limit the amount of rooms that get the discount do they?

The best way to tell is to go to the wdw.com site and see if your exact room is still available at full price for your exact dates. If it is, you have an excellent chance that you will get it on Tuesday (POR is a HUGE resort, with a huge inventory). If its not available, then the chances are slim to none that it will be discounted.

I am so EXCITED! I want to book now but I am at work. Nervous we will not get what we want if I wait until tonight... Hoping for Beach Club, club level for the first week in August. Do you think I am safe to wait until tonight?
Did I mention how happy and excited I am?

2006 - Booking started April 1
2007 - Booking started April 9
2008 - Booking started April 7
2009 - Booking started March 30
2010 - Booking Started April 29
2011 - Booking Started April 28
2012 - Booking Started March 1

Normally I would say yes, but since the CL area is small (relative to the rest of the resort) I would probably try to make the call during your lunch hour if you can...

I called to compare prices of this new sale versus the Orbitz booking I already had for our mid-June stay, which was 20% off room only...this sale actually priced $200 higher at POFQ, which is where we are currently at and about the same I paid if we were willing to move to PO.

So, we are staying put! But at least I feel better that I called and compared!

I was booked at POFQ-standard view. (Already had my reservation) When I called today, the CM first said there were no discounts available. Turns out there were none available for standard. I got a garden view with the discount, however it wasn't much of a savings. (About $40) Still, a room upgrade for me. I didn't go in expecting much being booked at POFQ. I'm just glad to finally be going back to my happy place!!

Help me!

Hi! I am not going until Oct, but I assume at some point some sort of discount will come out. We are currently using a AAA agent. I have a Disney Visa. Will AAA change my booking for me if the discount is better or would I need to rebook myself? I am wondering now bc we are going to switch resorts and I will probably do that on Mon, I am just wondering if I should cancel AAA reservations and go with something else. thank you!!
Also, would you have to book the trip on your Disney Visa? Or can you just use the code and put a partial amount on your Visa? My limit is not enough to pay for my vacation! Thanks again!

Silly question but can I call now and make a tentative reservation so we do not lose what we are wanting (Beach Club, club level) and then call back tonight with my DH to finalize? We like to be together when we make our Disney reservations. Corny but true...

I just got off the phone and got a discount for a standard view. Saved about $95. My dates are July 14-20.

I believe they can put a courtesy hold on.

Interesting... My dates are for June 17-24. Wonder if that has anything to do with it... Wonder if I should call back and get a second opinion...
