Heard from my TA this morning. She was on hold over 2 hours yesterday, gave up, and then held for over an hour this morning.

But we are now $468 cheaper for our POR stay!

Super tempted to upgrade to Beach Club, but it would be $500 more, and combined with our savings, that would be almost $1000 more, so we'd rather save that for spending money for the drive down!

Got our discount!!

I called on Monday at 7 AM and got right thru to a very friendly CM. I saved for our May 22nd to 29th trip $938.28 !!!!!

We have been booked at the WL for a long time and I have been waiting for the discounts to come out.

Our CM was not able to figure out the breakdown for the discount but I think we were given 25% off plus a few free days on our park tickets (3 adults and a 14 year old). I know the advertisement says 30% for the WL but I don't think we got that but am not sure. Our base hotel cost was $3182.65 for a woodsview room.

But I am not complaining and am very happy to save that amount!!!!

I sent an email to Disney about my confusing experience with the several phone calls I had to make to get my discount. I wanted to be sure they credited me back for the payments I had made on the ones they cancelled because the CM's I spoke to did cancel my previous reservation and start new. I do finally see one being credited and my gift cards being credited back, but am still not seeing a credit for the other one. I was going to give it another couple of days. I thought they were also emailing me confirmation of the cancellations, but they didn't. The CM's were nice, just didn't know how to handle this situation at all. My email was very nice but I wanted to express that I was disappointed.

Tonight, I got a phone call from Disney regarding my email but my cell phone was acting up. I tried calling back but she's on another call probably. Hopefully, she'll be able to call me back tomorrow and we can get the credit resolved and I can feel more secure in what I have reserved and cancelled. I've never had complications like this with Disney before.

I had the same problem! I was so mad! The first time I called, I got right through but the lady didn't have a clue! I was on with her for almost an hour and she kept putting me on hold to get my account unlocked and this and that. Then after the first hour with her, she still couldn't figure it out so she shipped me somewhere else and after being on hold for another hour I hung up. I called back a few hours later and they had cancelled my previous reservation and made a complete new one. Which means we lost our travel insurance (we need for dh because his work can't guarantee the vacation days.) I was so mad. I tried really hard not to be rude to the lady on the phone because it wasn't her fault but I let her know how unhappy I was about it. Especially when I had even told the other lady not to cancel my reservation. Anyway, she talked to someone and got it all straightened out and all of my previous payments were applied to the new one within about a day including my insurance! It was stressful!

I looked into booking the Poly for May but only the club level rooms were available for the Spring discount. The sale goes until March. Could it be possible the regular rooms are all gone already or is the discount for club level rooms only?

We got 20% off our room-it took weekday nights at Sports down to $87. :D
I would just like to thank the Dis today, because I might never have found out about this if it wasn't for these boards.

We originally booked a standard room at the Poly when the Visa discount became available but switched to WL to save ourselves $800 more. Both were 30% off. I'm guessing the Poly standard rooms just sold out for the discount but you could keep checking back in case someone else like me switches out

May/June time frame: Please keep in mind between the Garden Show (at EPCOT) and Star Wars Weekends (at DHS) the rooms are going to be tight! And with the poly having a the direct monorail over to EPCOT, and then a quick boat ride to DHS. The poly I would think during that time would be popular.

Yes but with the construction you would think many people would deside to go to another resort. In fact I would think GFR would fill up first. I would not have thought the Poly will fill up by the second day of the sale with all that is going on there.

When going to events especially SWW where they are at the event more than the resort people want convenience for the places they are visiting and a nice bed, they would take location, location, location and the cheap non benefit room even in the construction.

They may have not had very many discounted rooms because of the construction.

Finally booked my rooms! Two triple rooms at the All-Star Sports from May 11th to 18th Took until yesterday for my company to finally show the discount, but oh well - at least it did!

We would have loved doing a family suite at the Art of Animation, but it was nearly 700$ more and we decided we'd rather spend that on our food budget and the Memory Maker and so on

The coworker is now booked, with this great discount, to go to WDW. This will be her first time! She is so excited.
