Congrats to everyone who can take advantage of it this year.
I believe the end date for booking the May room only discounts was March 29th.

Does the entire party have to be present for checkin by the 25th? If I have inlaws check in on the 25th and stay with us and we arrive on the 26th will the FD be honored?

Those discounts came out in Dec/jan and had to be booked by 3/31. There is a current PIN code for a room discount, but it has been out awhile. If it didn't get emailed or snail mailed to you, you can't use it.

For example, Pop Century is allocated 100 FD standard rooms, if they sell all 100 of those FD standard rooms before you call, you would not be able to apply the FD code to your existing reservation, even if your existing reservation is at Pop Century in a standard room. You could then ask of they have availability at a preferred room at Pop or ask if they have availability at All Star Movies with a standard room. This really isn't an issue if you call within the first few days of a FD promo and they will credit you the difference, but you at not guaranteed a FD discount because you have an existing reservation.
Which is why it pays to just call when it becomes available. Then if your choice is booked, there's plenty of other resorts. Also, to add to what you said, on top of a certain number of rooms per resort...there also can be a certain number of room types within a resort. So for example if you have a riverside view, there may only be a few of those available, vs more garden-view rooms.

Keep in mind, that on the first morning it will pretty much be us tying up the lines. The emails don't even go out until later in the morning, so just because there's a long wait doesn't mean there are thousands ahead of you...more like a few dozen, as it takes a long time to make a booking.

I've never had any trouble getting Pop when it was a new resort, or getting Riverside, which is a popular moderate, even calling a few days later. I'm going moderate this time around, just for a change of pace. I've stayed at nearly all of them but not Coronado, so I may want to give it a try.

AOA - Nemo?

Any ideas whether or not Nemo rooms are included? For the Summer Discount (General and AP) the Nemos were not included (or sold out by 7:05 AM) on the day the offers were released. No AAA discount for them either.

Danny didn't say they were excluded, so you have a good chance. Good luck!

"Are you in the same room? "

Would be if I can convince them to go.

Is there any other workaround possible? Paying for 1 extra night but not checking in until the 26th?

Is there any chance you can get there in the middle of the night or very early the morning of the 26th? The computer system doesn't roll over until approx. 6am, so if you pay for the 25th and arrive very early on the 26th you can just let them know your arrival will be late at night. If you are flying, Magical Express runs 24/7, so get the latest flight if possible on the 25th, and it should work.
