I gave in and booked with Cheap Tickets today. They have a code for %20 off until tomorrow with the same cancellation policy as Disney. They did want it prepaid but I going in 2 months anyway. Booking this way let me upgrade from CSR to AKL.

Just thought I'd let people know. Cheap Tickets gave a hotel reservation number on my confirmation. I entered it this morning on MDE and all my info popped right up. Now I'll cancel my other reservation at CBR. So far so good. I did a chat and the agent called Disney and added my requests while I was online with her. No longer anxious and I know I got a better discount than I could have even with AP.

Go 'Noles!

I see a winter20 discount for the dates I looked at, but there are different room categories to choose from and some say "standard room" and others say "Standard Room...Disney Resort Benefits". When I looked at the one with Disney Resort Benefits, the price is higher than through Disney. Also, when I first looked at it, I didn't put the kids in, just two adults. The room price went up a lot when I added the 2 kids, which is something I have never seen before. They are only 7 and 9 so not considered adults.

So, just look carefully before you book through them.

I know what you mean. I could not get these great rates to come up like other people have.

Please Help!

We are thinking about taking a vacation to WDW the last of May or the first of June. We would be traveling with first timers if we go. I checked on Disney and the prices has gone up a lot in the past year or so. This would be my 5th time. I want to make this a great trip for the first timer's. We have always stayed on Disney property but I am considering something else this time. Does anyone know of some great discounts out there so we could stay at Disney instead of some other place. I have always got a really good deal going through Disney but if I could get a better deal through another company I would. Please HELP! Thank you.

Yesterday was my 45th day so full payment was due. Once I called to make payment, I talked to the CM about how surprised we were that the fall AP discount hadn't been released yet. And that was why I was waiting until the last minute to make payment. I was told that the AP discount was coming out on Sept 3 & that I could wait until then to apply the discount & make final payment. I would still have to pay the $50 fee since I was appying a discount withing the 45 day period that would decrease the cost of my package. I told her that I was concerned that my reservation would be cancelled if i didn't pay now. She said there was a grace period & since I would only be waiting a few days, I would be fine. I could have paid & once the discount comes out, apply it & receive credit back on my card (minus the $50 change fee) but I decided to go ahead & wait a few days. We are staying at Pop in Oct & the current general discount was 15%. I asked if she could see what the AP discount was for Values. She said it would be 20%. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I was able to get the winter20 with resort benefits. I don't have any children going with me, just DH and I for 4days before moving to our timeshare at Bonnet Creek. No problem with dining reservations because I had a RO discount on my CSR room. I just canceled and everything looks good. I wonder what "Disney benefits " you wouldn't get. Transportation and EMH are available to everyone staying at the resort. dME is available by just calling that number.
Could be some room categories may not be eligible for Disneys RO discount so therefore are higher on Cheap Tickets. Anyway I saved money and got a Deluxe that is DH's favorite.

I hope she was right on the date. AP discounts had better be more than the GP offer!

If you're local, you have a lot more options that people that fly. I can't wait until the week before I leave to book a flight.

I have a room reserved under the GP offer now, but will be applying the AP rate once the darn thing is finally released.

If it does come out on Tuesday, does anyone know what time it will be? Would you just call in or would the website be a better option?
