July 6-10 GF CL Sugar Loaf
Disney: $2285
Orbitz: $1938

Plus I got $58.13 Orbucks to apply to future travel.

Use code "discover" for 20% off! They also have POR available too! I was also surprised we could buy park tickets as well!

GREAT DEAL! When booking through Orbitz are you able to link the ressie on the Disney website? Also can you book specific room categories through Orbitz, or is it a mystery? What's the cancellation policy thru Orbitz?

Does the MDE website work with Orbitz rooms? So you can do FP+ and all that stuff?

That would be a deal breaker for me. Anyone have experience with that?

Thanks to the OP. Just rebooked through Orbitz and in the confirmation e-mail there is a "Hotel Confirmation number" that links to MDE. Process took less than a minute.

Yes, it works perfectly with MDE! I had all the info I needed from the e-mail I received right after booking. I immediately put the numbers in and everything showed in seconds. There were 8 categories of rooms I could have chosen from, so you will have some variety at most resorts.

I just booked through Orbitz using their 20% off code. Plus with the app I got 5% back in orbucks to use (there were three reservation total so I applied one orbucks reward to the next and now have an additional $45 left over for next time).

In total, I saved nearly $1300 for the 5 night split between AKL-CL and WL-CL!

Up until the promotion posted, AKL-CL wasn't available on Orbitz. I think my co-workers think I'm a little crazy when I found out it was now an option and I could apply the 20% off to it!

Can you still do Magical Express if you book through Orbitz instead of directly though Disney?

Does Orbitz have the dining plan option? I couldn't find it, but didn't know if I was missing something.

Looking at the discounts through orbitz I could save over $500 more than the discount through Disney! When I add my 5 year old daughter to the reservation the price goes up. I think I read previously that it is best to book the reservation with only 2 adults and add children by calling - is that still the best plan? Thanks!

Not truly a 20% savings with Orbitz when they are charging more per night for the rooms. I look at the end of August, and for the same nights at Coronado, Orbitz, before any code discount, is charging $155 per night when WDW is charging $140. Both rates are without tax, which Orbitz is calculating out at 13.5% vs. WDW's tax at 12.5%. In both cases it is a standard view room, Sun - Wed.

Granted, once you put the "discover" code in, it is less than booking directly with WDW, but it is not 20% off the WDW rates. It is more like 10+%. Don't get me wrong, another 10% (which is about what it is) is nothing to sneeze at.

Am I missing something here?
