Switched our courtyard room to woodsview and saved over $1,100 on our May trip at WL. We got the 30%.

Does anyone know if there is going to be a discount on AKL? My mom and I are looking to stay May 17th-May 24th. I am hoping so, should we call and ask? We were waiting to book a room there until discounts were released and when we called last week they said things haven't been posted yet...

The discounts were released on Monday morning to the general public. You can either call in or click on the "special offers" link on the WDW website. The link is located under the "places to stay" section.

Hmmm..., I think a Disney agent conned me last week. I called on 1/6 to see if I could apply the discount to my existing Contemporary room. Like most people there was no availability. I was in a rush (actually at the airport about to board my plane) and he told me that he could offer me a room in the Bay Lake Tower for a significantly reduced rate. He said the Bay Lake Tower is much nicer and worth the added premium. So since I was in a rush I decided to pull the trigger without knowing the normal rates for the BLT.

So essentially I switched from the Contemporary (I think Garden or Basic View) to the Bay Lake Tower Studio Theme Park View and am now paying about $450 more than my prior non-discounted room. Did I get completely taken by the representative? Is the BLT much nicer than the regular Contemporary?

It is what it is but am simply curious. As long as we still have monorail access it won't be a big deal.

Thanks.

We were originally booked in a Garden Wing room at CR. When the discount came out, those rooms were not applicable. Our TA booked us a Tower room, Bay Lake view (differnt from Bay Lake Tower), which would be a significant upgrade from the Garden Wing. With the discount, that room would have been ~$250 cheaper than our original rezzie in the Garden Wing. However, we spend such little time in the room, we didn't want to upgrade for such a small savings. We switched our rezzie to Beach Club, Garden View and are saving ~$1300.

I tried messing around yesterday to price out a future vacation, and it kept giving me error messages. It was the main Disney site though. For such a rich company, they seemed to need better IT!

The same exact thing was happening to me last night.

AP Rates

The AP rates are out for the Spring:
Sunday–Thursday nights 4/27–5/29/14. Other
rates and dates available 4/21–6/15/14.
Book by 6/15/14.
Looks about the same as the Disney VISA and GP deals. Way to take care of the passholders Disney. Sure glad I took advantage of the Cheap Tickets offer which gave me the 30% + an additional 27% off at BC.

Disappointed in the APA rates. We are going May 1-7 and none of the All Star resorts have rooms available with the discounts for that time. Am I missing something that week? I was able to apply to my POP ressie and get a standard pool view for $10 cheaper then current price but was hoping to switch to an All Star resort and save even more. It is myself and BFF and when we go we are rarely in room so cheapest place is the route we take.

I hear ya! I am paying more for my standard room at the Dolphin that same week than I did Easter week 2012 for a resort view room! It is still cheaper than BC or BWI and I really want to be in the Epcot area since it is a short trip for us. Sigh.

Hi all!

Just thought I'd pop in here and ask if anyone knows if they had free dining in May last year or year before?

Know the current discount for some ends March 5, I think...So just wondering

I ran your dates for 2 adults on Cheaptickets.com with the discount code cheaptastic. The results were a room at All-Star Sports May 1 - 7 for a total of $599.14 room only. If youre willing to book a 3rd party company, it could save some money! I saved over $781 on our May visit OVER the Disney special offer...

These reservations need to be paid in full when booking correct?
