This thread has really exploded over here, and I imagine Thursday is going to be round 2. I'm glad everyone could help each other and we were all able to keep each other calm through all of this. It wasn't nearly as bad this year, quite pleasant in fact. I'm not certain, but did anyone have a hold time of more than 30 minutes, if even that long?

Black and Danny -

Thank you so much for sharing the information! I called to apply a discount to my ressie at around 11:45. I waited just about 9 min, had a great CM, we worked the numbers, and we did better with the Room Only discount (30%) - saved over $1,000!!!



Now - can you work your magic on getting lower priced souveniers?

Say, start a FD discount on 10/01? Just trying to gauge whether my first choice date range will be covered with a discount at all now - sept 29-oct 5. =\
No way to know at this point, but they certainly have blackout dates between promos every year. I suspect they have a pretty high resort occupancy rate that weekend or it would have been included in this round of discounts.

Thanks again for all your guidance.
Might as well wait, since you have to call on Thursday anyway :-)

Hi everyone!! I have a question for you since my DH has not one bit of interest in obsessing over WDW trip plans with me.
Ok, we are coming 10/20-10/25, DH, me, DS13,DS11,DD7. Staying offsite first night. This will be our 2nd trip to WDW but 1st trip staying on property. I have AoA Nemo booked. Want to do regular DP. Obviously hoping for FD but know they wont release that until July/Aug if we are lucky.
Finally, my question....sorry...longwinded here.....Looking at the numbers it looks like we could save $700 staying at POR or $200 at ASmusic. Is staying at AoA silly if I could save that much?
One reason I want a suite is because we travel alot for our DSs soccer and lacrosse and cram into those regular rooms and it is not pleasant.

Never having stayed on property I am not sure what to expect?!?
Thanks for advice/opinions.

Well I just got online and purchased two Halloween Party tickets. Did you guys realize the second party is Friday the 13th. So the Studios will have villains and then a Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom that night...sounds like a great way to spend the last day of our trip!!!

For me it comes down to having that second bathroom ;-). So I like the idea of 2 rooms. You could get 2 connecting rooms at Pop or All Star Movies and probably save around $600 vs staying in one of the AoA suites. To me $600 is a nice chunk of change. The AoA resort is themed beautifully and the rooms and suites are super cute, but not cute enough for me to pass up a $600 discount ;-)

That's just my take and personal preference :-)

I know, I heard about the villains thing, that's awesome. I so would have done that... and we usually go to the first week of MNSSP.

But, we have a budding chef among us... my son is taking high school culinary classes & plans to go to culinary school (in Orlando, mind you, hoping he gets an internship at Disney or US); we moved it a little later to catch the first weekend of the F&WF, then I heard about the villains! I'm such a villain fan.
