Thank you very much!

For those wondering about booking. I went ahead and booked the resort that I wanted and my cousin was able to call and apply his discount. It is 40% and I'm so happy. I received an updated invoice once he applied his discount. Of course, there's no guarantee that this (or any) promotion will be available when you call, so if you need the discount, I would have your CM friend/family check for you first.

aaarcher86 - thank you for all the info that you have shared. With the ability to purchase full price DDP, can you also purchase full price DxDP? Can you purchase tickets?

I'm patiently waiting to see if a 50% offer comes out for January. If it doesn't or it required QSDP, that's OK, I'm happy with the 40%

Has the discount been extended past Oct 26th? My trip is 25-30 so can't get the extra discount unless it is extended to include ALL of my days. Hoping for the DDP discount to be extended as well!

Not yet. Probably won't know until beginning of Oct. or later.

With a 40% and full price DDP you CAN get the DXDP! If you're doing the 50% discount you'd only be able to do the discounted DDP associated with the offer.

For tickets, you'd just get those on your own via phone, website, or in person.

My niece has made a reservation for me for December. I'd like to call to see if another resort has opened up. Do I just call the regular reservation number?

Thanks!

I don't think either makes much of a difference, but since broad offers were out for the latter part of October I'd go with that if you have a choice.

Those resorts are all included - it just depends on how many rooms they make available which just depends on regular bookings.

Thank you aaarcher86. I called them to see if a discounted dining plan was available and she said the only way to do that was to add it to my reservation and see what the price changed to. It was a very long phone call, lol.

OMG lol. Totally incorrect. They can see what the discounted price is before the dining plan gets added on a per night basis. They just can't see the total until it's added, but knowing if it's available is entirely different.

I'd call back and speak to someone else. Give the reservation number and just ask if the cast member F&F discounted dining plan is out yet. They can check that. FYI, it's still only out through 10/26 for QSDP on a F&F reservation.

LOL, I didn't think that was right! I didn't think the dining plan would be out yet but I had to call for something else so I figured I'd just check. Thank you again.
