Could you please tell me which resorts are available for CM discounts for the week of 2/5 - 2/11 2014? I was hoping for AoA, but I know it's not available.
In only remember the suites at AoA and the Carribean.

We're also interested in the DDP, maybe the QSDP. Are any of these also available for CM discount? Our CM relative couldnt' get it last year for some reaso0n and we paid full price.

Our aunt will be getting us in again, but now that my baby is 4, we will have to buy an extra ticket for her since we're 4. Our aunt doesn't seem to be able to share the tickets with us and will only get us in the park when she gets off work at noon. But we'll take it.

Thanks!

You really should have your aunt check the HUB for resorts and dates you want. She is the best one to do this for you. the dining discount is only offered certain times, not always offered. You would have to pay full price if the discount is not available.

I agree...its just that i don't want to harass her and i want to know as much as possible before she calls. I was ok with going back to Pop, but my DH feels he wants to try a moderate resort, but if rather use the money for food or reserve a little mermaid room so that we have acres to the pools.

Don't take this the wrong way, but it will only take her a few minutes to see what is available for you. The help people have been getting on this thread can begin to border on too much information given by a cast member. The cast member who you have making the reservation should be the one checking for you. I do not have HUB access because I am now retired. I have to call cast reservations daily, sometimes several times a day, to get the information I need to book friends and family rates.

If your aunt is willing to make the reservation for you then she knows she has to check what is available for your dates. Good luck getting what you want and enjoy your trip.

I'd like to mimic this. It's one thing to give semi-readily available basic information, but to actually get into reservation specifics is just asking a bit too much of anyone but the booking CM. I can understand not wanting to bug a relative, but on that same note, asking a complete stranger to take the same amount of time to do it doesn't make much sense either.

I've found emailing between the CM and family member is the method that feels the least harassing. Just shoot the CM an email with dates/resorts/DP that you'd like to check and they can get it to it without feeling rushed. There are currently no DDP discounts for 2014. Good luck and enjoy

Is this the first time the dining offer with F&F has been QSDP? We went in June 2012 with F&F discount and were able to purchase the regular DP at a discounted rate. I wonder if the QSDP is going to become the typical offering.

It's been both the whole rest of the year. This latest is the only one that's been exclusively QSDP. It's also the first year they allowed full price DDP with a CM room though, so I think that's pretty great. At least it's not all or nothing anymore.

Yes! I was surprised to read your earlier comment that you can keep the 40% and buy the DP for full price. The offer comes out so close to your travel date that it can be nerve wracking to wonder if you'll get the DP. At least this way I can plan to pay for it and be delighted if I get a discount!

I have a room booked with the F&F. If I add the DP will I pay for it now or when I check in? I paid my room deposit already.

Pay for it when you check in. Your deposit may go up a little, I really don't remember. It is still considered a room only reservation to be paid in full at check in. I love that we can now add the dinning plan to reservations.

I have a reservation for December but when I called to add the DP the CM staff says that I can't added at that moment that I should check back at the end of September or first week of October. Anyone know why?

Call back and talk to another cast member. Explain that you know there isn't a discount for it yet and you want to apply the full priced plan. I have had to call back a few times to get a cast member who knew what to do!

Thank you!

This leads me to as if I can cancel the DP off if it does not get the F&F discount by my stay? I did research and my family can eat for way less OOP since my kids will most likely eat off our counter service meals, I only wanted to do the DP so we could do character meals, but they are not a necessity.

And, would my CM need to add the plan to the res or can I do it?

CM needs to make the initial reservation. You can add it on or take it off after that. Adding or removing it won't have an effect on your room discount.
