Yeah, the first time I called in this morning the CM I got said there were no discounts. I hung up and called right back and told the lady that I knew they were out and I wanted to apply it, she was much better.

I want to call in to get it fixed but I'm kinda worried because I was (accidentally? pixie dusted?) given 30% on my moderate this morning. I don't want them to catch it and take it back to 25% lol.

Applied our Disney Visa Rewards discount to our already paid for package reservation and was able to upgrade from the Garden wing at the Contemporary to the Tower-Theme Park View for only $10.20 more! I am happy!

I called back and asked about the package and got it straightened out. But, she might have forgot to cancel my room only reservation, so if that doesn't come off soon, I'll have to call back.

I did get the 20% off All Star Sports and the 7th day tickets free. I'm still waiting for the email I thought she was sending too... I'd like to see the cost break down and also see if I can make a payment online... Can I? If so, where?

Thanks!!!

But, I'll need to decide if saving $40 on the 7th day ticket for 4 of us is worth having to pay 45 days earlier.
There's usually two different codes that the CMs use, one to apply to room only reservations and one to apply to package reservations. It sounds to me like you had an inexperienced CM. She should have been able to apply the appropriate package code to your existing reservation and gotten you both the room discount and the free day on your tickets.

I had this happen once, back when I was a relative newbie to WDW. The CM I was talking with told me I could either book a room only reservation with the room only discount or an undiscounted package. I didn't book with her because I was really torn. I was trying to apply a 40% off PIN but I really wanted the DDP (back when the DDP was a good deal). I hung up, called back a few hours later, and got a CM that knew what he was doing. He booked me a package with the 40% off the room portion.

Yes, payments can be made online on the main Disney World website. After you log into MDE, select "my reservations" from the MDE drop down menu at the top right. Once the new page loads, a link that says "make a payment" should appear beside your remaining balance. I've used it several times in the past 3 weeks.

My trip is June 8th through the 22nd. Will I get the discount on all the days or just the first week?

Room discounts only cover the days included in the discount. You would get it from the 8th thru the 15th.

I have never get an email from my Disney visa I always hear about the discounts here. Every post I've read where people do get email notices says they have got them around 1:00.

I don't think i got 30% on my YC club level room. She could not tell me what the percentage was, but it was $100 more than i figured.

So what is the exact package deal?

Thanks!

They way I figured mine was 25% off the room potion of my package and then I got a little over 10.00 for the extra day ticket per person about 40.00. My travel agent made the call to have the discount applied and it came out to the same as I figured.

A newbie here. Is this considered a good discount? Is it better than free dining or the stay, play and dine discount? If I was planning on two little mermaid rooms what would be a good plan to maximize savings?

It's not a bad one, but I personally would have saved a lot more with free dining or S/P/D. For example, today I saved $375 where free dining would have saved us $930.

As far as your situation goes, be aware that usually the Little Mermaid rooms are excluded from promotions.
