I know everyone probably knew this but me but I already had an existing reservation due to the importance of our trip, so I had already paid a deposit. Well I called this morning to apply the Visa discount (saved $700 off 4 nights of our 6 night stay ) I knew she had to do a new reservation but she said that leaves you owing X amount, so I said that includes my previous deposit and she said yes (not bashing her, I absolutely loved her). So I added tickets and then when I looked at e-mail and ran numbers it didn't add up. So long story short after 2 more calls (2nd CM was in a rush) the CM explained they had already credited my Visa for the first deposit and charged me a new deposit of a different amount. Just wanted to share so no one spent 3 hours running numbers .

My ressies are August 10-16 which means this latest Visa offer is only good for the first 4 nights but the CM I talked to this morning said for me to keep an eye out for new discounts and I can apply the new discount for the last 2 nights . So her to keeping my fingers crossed for us!,

Every resort for every day will have a different set of "available" rooms. It just depends on occupancy. If the first CM said it wasn't available for your dates, its not. But you can always look on-line on Tuesday when the discount is released to the General Public and becomes bookable on-line through the Special Offers page.

My DH thinks I am crazy... I feel such anxiety waiting until Tuesday knowing that the deal is now out for the Visa card holders, lol! Does anyone know what time on Tuesday the deal is usually open? I'm wondering if we can do it before we leave for school in the morning or if we will have to wait for a break...

Thanks for the heads up this morning!!

I almost forgot to check this morning! I was able to keep my package reservation at POR with the discount and add 5 nights at the Beach Club.
I was able to get one standard view at BC but by the time we started the second room at BC they ran out of standard views! I booked our second room as garden view.
POR preferred was 20% off and BC was 30% off!
Thanks again!

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!
You need to tell your AAA agent about the deal. They will not offer it to you on their own, like a Disney Specialist TA does, but they will apply it. Only the down payment or equivalent there of needs to go on your Disney Visa.

Remember that this morning they were booking this room and since it wasn't announced, that means it was folks like us. Even though there's a lot of us, we are a small drop in the bucket. Most folks don't go as crazy as we do.

That said, just keep calling. You'll get what you want.
The offer was on the Disney Visa Rewards between 9-10am CST today.

Like many of us here, I've been checking the thread daily waiting & hoping for an early release for Disney Visa cardholders. Sooo excited when I logged in today & saw it was open! Got our reservation changed to apply the discount. "Only" saved us a little over $200, but that's $200 more to spend on pretzels, dole whips, Mickey ice cream bars...you get the idea!

Please someone with a little more DW wisdom than I... looking for some advise..
we are booked at POFQ because in the event that free dining was not offered at Value Resorts, we do like the 'deal'.
In light of the room only promo that was just released , historically does it appear that perhaps the 'free dining' may be introduced for late August? i cant remember when the promos began in past years... any thoughts would be most appreciated. Have a Blessed weekend.

Go to Mousesavers.com and she list past years deals, when they were released, and what dates the were good for. Very well organized, which I could put the link on but it's not letting me.
