Do you guys think if I sign up for the Disney Visa (which I was going to do anyway, since I got a free $200 offer) today and get immediate approval I would be able to book right away? Or will I need to wait for my card to come in the mail?
Do you have to pay with the Disney Visa to get the discount? I was hoping to go the gift card route and save another 5%.

Now I just buy Disney gift cards at Target for the remaining balance and I save an additional 5%. Plus since my AAA agent modified the reservation, I am now going to receive a $25 gift card as well. This will cover the few TS meals, apps etc that were beyond the dining plan.
Yea its only $10.50 pp for the 9th days ticket when added to the 8th.

SO you are probably going with 2 people and are seeing a $21 dollar difference total and didn't mean per person.

You have to put the $200 deposit on your Disney Visa

If you sign up right away and get like a Temp card with your number etc so that you can charge things to it via the internet/phone, you should have no problem. If it takes them a couple days to get it to you, then you will have to wait. Of course, its still adding another $200 savings, not bad

Arg! I asked about Movies but didn't even consider that the other AllStars might have a different discount. OK, gotta get back on the phone!

Instead I got 30% off Coronado!

Sent from my iPad using the DISBoards app.

I was told Coronado was only 5% but did get 25% off of Riverside and the extra day's ticket.

The discount covers the following dates:
February 24 - March 5
March 14 - April 12
April 20 - June 15

There are various discounts depending on resort and room type, here are some examples:

Value Resorts - 20%
All Star Movies - 5%
Art of Animation suites 15%

Moderate Resorts 25%.
French Quarter - 5%

30% Deluxe Resorts
Grand Floridian, Contemporary, and Club Level at Animal Kingdom Lodge and Wilderness Lodge - 20%.

As an interesting twist, if you also purchase a four-day ticket, you'll get an extra day for free!!!
Thanks, again, for sharing the details!

We're in a 2bed villa at BLT, so I hope the discount applies to more than just studios there. We could swing a 1bed + studio if discounts applied, but 2bed would be nicer!

I just got off the phone with a REALLY helpful rep! We were originally booked in a 2bdrm at BLT--this was NOT available for the discount. Studios were, but that wouldn't work for us. I switched to 2 rooms at the CR, TPV and saved $1000. Could have saved a little more with LV, but thought it might be nice since this is DS's graduation trip.
I've been watching this thread like a hawk! Thank you so much for posting this so I could get things changed today when I'm off!!!

It should have been just 25% for Coronado. I'm not sure what happened when I called in. Pixie dust? lol who knows! But I was told that the free day ticket and % off offers weren't able to be combined, where others are reporting as getting it. Who knows what's going on...

Ok so I just called and booked with Visa discount for early May. PO riverside garden view for 25% off plus the extra park ticket. There weren't any standard rms left. The total cost for our family of 4:

7 nights with 6 day basic tickets $2467.04

I tried to get PO French Quarter, but only was given 5% off. The CM also looked up cheapest deluxe with this code and my total was a little over $3000 at Wildness Lodge with woods view. I'd rather spend my savings on character meals etc...
Good luck everyone!

I've never called before to ask, but do you just call the general Disney line to see if there is a pin attached to your name?

Ugh. Thanks for sharing! I better have a back-up plan in place for Monday since we are also in a 2bed at BLT. Saving $1000k is killer.

There is no temp card that you can get with your card #. I tried because mine is in the mail and Chase said they will not give you your card # over the phone. You must receive and activate the card in the mail. I tried this morning.
