I am thinking about staying at POP for the first night so that I can purchase the discounted tickets and then move to AOA LM rooms the next night. We are going with extended family and we could save some $ on tickets. Is there a minimum number of nights in order to get the ticktes? We will be getting to the resort late so we don't care where we stay the first night.
Yes you must book at least 4 nigths to qualify for the discounted tickets

Danny,

My dates for the Poly GVCL are June 28-July2. Are you foreseeing that as a blackout date because it is so close to the 4th? I already have about 22% off through my TA. I do not know if the Poly will go much more than that anyway.

So excited!

Thanks!

I had the same question, and someone posted earlier that based on the Spring promotion, the discount was $30 approx. For the four day ticket per adult.

You got it! I asked my TA to add it to my package and she said I was better off to preorder, because they do not charge tax UNLESS it is part of a package.

Thanks so much for all your help!!!!
asked same question on another thread, didn't see a reply so i'll chime in here

imo very odd AP rates cut off early June, before the current 30% promo ends (6/13). Realize AP rates not always offered.

last year AP promos for 2nd week in June were announced early February, with the next round not released until early May. Waiting that long would run into final payment date on packages that fall after June 3) if they don't release something beforehand. Hate to think they may skip rest of June entirely.

jmho with the PAP discount offered to DVC members, i'm wondering how many of us are sneaking in another trip paying cash this year? combined with other factors...if the rooms are selling ahead of track via packages, guess no need to discount them for AP holders

From what I understand, I can book the room now and on 4/2 call and get a discount for the first nights. When/if a discount is released for the last nights of the trip, can I call again and change the second half to that discount? Will it end up being two separate reservations? I'm still not sure what resort. Right now I'm thinking an AoA Family Suite because we have myself, my mom, DH, DS6, DS4, and DD2 along for the ride and need separate sleeping areas while keeping the price reasonable. TIA
When we went over New Years's Eve we had 2 reservations, the one starting Dec 30 with no discount then the one from Jan 2-5 with discount. I don't know if this was because only half our trip had discount. But I would say there is a chance you will have 2 separate reservation and if there is we had no problem. They told us we may have to change rooms but we didn't. Also we did Magical Express so we received our reservations for ME on the way there but not for way back and then on Jan 4 we received all our ME info, luggage tags, etc.

Our trip last year was over two different discount periods. We were booked for the first 6 nights on the spring discount with our last night on the summer discount. It was easy enough to make the change to our reservation when the summer discount came out (we had already booked without our last night being part of any discount at the time.) We were also advised we might have to change rooms. When we checked in I informed the CM we actually had two reservations and were hoping to not have to change rooms. She said that wouldn't be a problem and we were booked in one room for the entire week. She did tell us we would have to come down & check out and then check back in.

Here's where it got messed up...I went and did as she told, presented all four of our KTTW and they were swapped out for new ones. Off to the park we went...got to the turnstyle...and nothing! Were told to go to guest services as our KTTW were ROOM ONLY!!! Yikes! The guest services CM was VERY friendly & helpful. He was able to look up our entire pkg and was able to give us paper tickets for that day (this was our last day so that was fine.) He explained when we were given our new KTTW, the CM at the resort had not put on our remaining day of park tickets. Next day, we were preparing for check out & realized we didn't have our DME papers...back to the front desk. Turns out DME expected us THE DAY BEFORE (when our first reservation ended) but we hadn't gotten any paperwork since our reservation was for another night. Yikes!!! LUCKILY--we had a mid day flight b/c it took about an hour to coordinate with Disney, CSR (where we were staying,) AirTran & DME to get us booked on another DME. By the time it was all resolved we had just enough time to grab our bags and run to the DME pickup and get checked in. Lots of stress which I believe could have been avoided. Would hope to not have to book like that again but if we do, I'll definitely not assume the "professionals" have done everything correctly and will check it myself.

Yikes! Even though our trip went smoothly, we are looking at the possiblity of having two reservations again this August (last night could be on different reservation if new discounts come out for August 15). Sorry your trip didn't go well but thanks for the heads up.
