I had posted somewhere on the boards a few days ago....but French quarter is only 5%. It's one of the exclusions, same as All Star Movies.

Good luck everyone!!
Yes, thank you!! I read about this on here on Saturday, so I called first thing this morning and saved $927 on our 7 night stay at WL. Good luck to all of you!!

Gotcha! Yeah, I just played with some other resorts online.... need to see what DH wants to do.

Part of me wants to say screw it and upgrade our room to a deluxe. LOL

Part of me is annoyed that where we picked is only 5%-- especially after I read the exclusions and didn't see that. (I saw AOA- Little Mermaid and Grand Floridian exclusions.)

OF COURSE, the CM I spoke with had "no idea why her computer was doing that." Humph.

What a Disney Dilemma! LOL

Yay!!!!! Congrats!!!!! Isn't that the best?!?! I was pixie dusted with this same offer last week when I got 30% off at CSR instead of 25%. I know it's not that big of a deal, just 5%, but I'm still so excited over it!

I called back. Disney Rule #1: If you get a clueless CM call back.

This one knew exactly why I wanted to change resorts (You didn't like the 5% discount on your rate, ma'am? NOPE!)

Changed to CB. Which interestingly, was the resort we started with during this trip planning session.

Funny how that worked out!

Called right at 7AM this morning, the CM I had was also clueless, I had to explain to him that I am changing resorts and apply the new discount to our reservation. It was 5 minutes of annoyance but I didn't want to wait on hold again, all is well that ends well. Upgraded our previous reservation to WL and only spent $174 more! whoop!

Is it just me or is the discount not showing any more for ANY of the value resorts?

I'm hoping it's just a glitch on my side - I work for a tour operator so booking in my own system, but it's not that we didn't get it right away cause I looked 10 minutes ago and it was there, and now it's not anymore. All I show the special offer on is like... the Yacht Club, Caribbean Beach, the Boardwalk and a few others

I'll be so upset with myself if I missed it

I was having the same problem last night when they first put up the discounts. Nothing was showing as available! I see you are also Canadian. I think it is the Canadian web site.

Go to the bottom left of the main page and under "International Versions" click "USA:English". This will change the web site to the US site. You can book from there. The prices on the "Canadian site" are also in USD so there is not really any difference.

Good luck!!!!:good vibes

Edited to add: You can also call in the 1-407 # on the res page. I called this morning to change our existing ressie and got through right away...no waits.

What dates? I rechecked my own dates to make sure the cm that applied my discount did it right and I saw availability. The website is $5 off or so what she got but I think it is the difference between photopass plus and memory maker.

Thank you for the advice! I really do need to book through my own system directly though, can't do it with Disney directly. But if it's still available with Disney, it may just be a glitch on our side, which would be a big relief

We're going May 11th to 18th, and we're paying for four of our friends so the discount makes a pretty big difference to us Thanks for letting me know you still see it there though, I hope we're just having issues with our own system and it'll be settled soon!

This thread is wonderful! I called at 7:15 this morning, didn't wait at all and saved $406 on a 3 night stay at BWI. If I had not updgraded to CL, I would have saved $575.
