AoA rarely has any promos or discounts and when it does they are super low like that. I've never seen anything higher than 15%. We realized, like you did, that upgrading is a better deal! We moved up to CSR since its highly likely that once promos are announced that we will save money.

I am definitely watching for an end of May discount.

My DD14 has decided to go to Disney with her Middle School Band and as long as they get approved by Disney, they'll be playing at DTD.

I'm pretty sure French Quarter only has 20% off with the pin code which is why we switched to Riverside.

I'm so excited to see that people are getting pins. I'm hoping to go late April into early May - if I can get a good enough discount to convince my DH that we can afford it . Our son (he'll be 3 in the spring) LOVES him some disney junior and its love to get an early trip in while he still does.

I don't remember reading it above, does anyone know what the stay minimums are for the offers?

Thanks.

Oh, and I'm Jen

Just keep your eyes here on the Disboards.....someone here will post when they hear something or when there's a special offer posted on the Disney site.

In the meantime, happy planning! Even after 19 trips to Disney and one Disney cruise, I still get excited about planning our trips.
That's good to know that there is a good chance that a discount will be offered later down the track - will definitely keep my eyes peeled!

Thanks, I am getting very excited while researching and planning for this trip even though it is still 7 months away.

We are also planning to head over to Universal/IOA (and stay onsite) for a couple of days and I wondered whether anyone knows how this will affect the Magical Express transportation back to the airport at the end of our trip? Will we need to book one more night at a WDW resort after Universal/IOA?

I'm in constant Disney vacation planning mode. It never stops.

Don't forget that you can make your dining reservations soon. That's next up on my list of things to do.

Hum, that's a good question. I've never seen that one posted. Maybe you can post over on the Transportation board and get an answer.

Okay, so now that I see everyone is getting their pins for May, I'm getting a little worried. I would really need either a pin or for Disney to release a discount for the beginning of May. Now, from surfing this board, am I correct to understand that we can call Disney to see if there's a pin under our name? What number should I call? Also, does anyone know when a general public discount for May would be released?

In the mean time, I'll just sit around a patiently worry that Disney doesn't love me!

You can call. 407-939-7675. I call all the time to check and see if I have a pin. If they would give me one I might add a few day to my trip. In the long run they would get more money from me. The general discounts came out last year at the end of December I think. The year before that they came in November so who knows when they will be released.

Haha, I wish I could be in constant Disney vacation planning mode. Sadly, this may be our only WDW for a long time given that we are from Australia.

Definitely excited about making ADRs - in the process of deciding which places to choose.

I managed to get some responses over on the Australian forum. People who have done what we are planning to do have taken DME one way only and organised separate transport to/from UO and MCO.

Oh goodness, I can certainly see why this may be a one time only trip to WDW. I've always always wanted to visit Australia!

Good luck planning!

First off, welcome to the Disboards! Second, congratulations on finding out that you had a pin and for saving so much money. That's absolutely fantastic!

Congrats on the PIN. Be careful you just might get addicted to the mouse.
