Disappointed!

WoW! I haven't seen such low availability and poor discounts for AP's EVER!!!

WE didn't get anything for our dates in November! I tried any MK resort and got next to nothing (except stuff like GF one bedroom for $1200 per night!!!!!!!! Ack! THAT'S a DISCOUNT!?!!??

WE are staying with our GP RO's. Thank goodness that we have those, at least!

Ap!

I was able to switch my Standard view AKL to Pool View/bunk beds for 10/18-10/22 for about $20 more. There was no availability on StV and we wanted bunk beds anyway so that works for us.

It definitely looked like the weekends were not discounted at all (or very little!) for some resorts. It was going to let me book a GV room at the Poly but it was showing at $511 per night for the Friday and Saturday evenings and then $289 for the Sunday and Monday. The latter rate is great and I would have jumped on it, but there is no way in heck I would pay $511 for a GV room at the Poly.

I hope you all are sitting down when I tell you about the discount *I* got - for our 4 nights in mid November I got an extra $25 off! not exactly a 'wow' but I'll take it.

Had to change from AS Movies (that only had preferred rooms that would have actually cost us more) to AS Music (where we usually stay but it would have been nice to do Movies for a change - oh well).

The whole trip is a surprise for DD - we're doing the MouseAdventure World Explorer V event. DH and I are too excited - DD is going to flip. So it doesn't really matter where we stay but a bigger discount would have been really nice. Guess I've been spoiled by AP discounts in the past.

Oh the humanity.... After waiting months to get the little extra off my room ( I presently have 10% AAA), I got up and called this morning, to find my 20% of AP would be $100 more! What? We are going Oct 31 - Nov 10 and got blacked out. Curse you Jersey Week Oh Well, back to the coupon clipping and better luck to y'all

This sounds like my experience with the GP discount. On August first at 6AM not one moderate hotel had availability for the room only discount during our week, 19/11 - 10/18. Why advertise states that have ZERO availability?!?! Super disappointing as we were waiting for the AP discount from my inlaws with fingers/toes crossed to get nothing.

We are staying Nov 30th - December 11. First night at POP, then Poly for 4 nights and BC for 6. Called this morning. We were able to save $8 on our POP stay, nothing else available. So glad that Disney values the loyal customers!

Soooo dissapointed right now, unbelievable that POFQ is now more expensive with an AP discount . We are moving our res to POP, we just don't feel like giving the mouse more $$$

Besides these discounts being poor, my bigger concern is the weekend rates.

I was playing around with October dates for YC as we may go next year, and the weekend rates didn't drop at all! After discount twice as much as weekday rates. And these aren't known blackout dates or holidays...I hope that doesn't continue..

So sorry for everyone who is having issues, I was able to call and get the AP discount for our dates in November (35% off BWI CL). It allowed us to upgrade to CL!

Looks like this would save me about $140 on my week at Pop. I booked a package with a 1-day ticket and DDP using the GP RO discount, and a pretty good portion of the savings switching to a passholder package would just be taking off that ticket.

I don't think it's worth changing a package reservation at 42 days out for that. Plus I don't really want it to mess up all the FP+ and MB tinkering I've done...

Just got off the phone and was able to book my trip for 9/26-9/30 with AP rates. Only thing was the poly was booked standard view for the first night so I have one night at POR the other 3 at Poly. The rate for the Poly was 35%. and i think 25% for POR.

We have the GP discount on our WL CL room from 11/17 thru 11/23, if we switched to the AP discount it would be $40 more. Bummer. BUT - at least we had the GP and at least we have the room we want.

Unfortunately the trend has been for no or small discounts on weekend rates for the AP discounts..we try to go during the week and avoid Friday and Saturday night. I know that isn't much help for the longer stays but that's the reality of it.

Thanks Ski.

With 1-2 trips a year this will likely be my last AP. Hoping to have better luck with GP, PINs, and BounceBacks going forward!
