Coupons???? Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me!!!

So we leave for Pop in about 4 1/2 weeks and today in the mail we got a packet with really nice luggage tags, 100 Free Arcade Tokens, Free Mini Golf, and a ton of other coupons. I wasn't expecting this. Does everyone get this? We are staying for a week with the Free Dining Package with Tickets? This was a very nice surprise!!!

That is the normal package for guests staying onsite. Did you get the yellow DME tags? If you are useing DME they are the tags they use to know where to bring your bags. Of course this is only if you are flying.

The souvenir luggage tags (are they still the 3D ones with the fab 5?) that come with the Mickey Mail are the kind that hold your name and contact info. They aren't the yellow ME tags.

Also, the Mickey Mail is not sent to all onsite guests. Only to those with a vacation package.

The coupons are not bad. I think a lot of people have trouble finding time to use them so they don't get much talk here on the Dis.

Remember the 100 token thing at the arcade is pretty much good for 1-2 games if I recall correctly. On our last big trip, we spent 2 full days at Disney Quest and my son still insisted on spending some of his money at a resort arcade. The 100 token thing went towards that. On previous trips, we have let him spend the 100 tokens and then walk out. He was never happy to leave but taking him to the free arcade in Innoventions helped.

The coupon for Planet Hollywood worked out well for us. I had met up with another Dis'er at WDW and he wasn't planning on using his coupon so gave it to me. I was able to use both coupons at Planet Hollywood at the same time. We ended up taking the kids there for a light meal. The 2 coupons were enough to mostly pay for 1 app, 1 meal, 1 dessert plus a souvenir drink for my son which we all shared. Their fries were INCREDIBLE! my kids ranked it as amongst their favorite anywhere (almost as good as the ones on the Royal Caribbean cruise lol). My DH REALLY enjoyed their Key Lime pie. It was much, much, much better than what we got later at Wolfgang Puck Express.

We have never used the coupon for mini golf mostly because we have never had the time.

Enjoy!!!

We always use the coupons - mini golf in the AM before hitting a park, % off childcare, DQ, and arcade coupon are our faves. Saves a nice little chunk right there!

One nice perk of the packages!

I believe that they only send Mickey mail within North America.

We received ours when we checked in, together with our customised Magic Bands. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to use any of the coupons though!

Free admission to Disney Quest is a great value! Isn't that normally around $40 per person? We had never gone in the past and had little desire to go, but decided to give it a try last year since it was free. We loved it! And we are 2 females with no interest in video games.

We also love the free mini golf vouchers (good before 4pm).

The Magic Your Way package coupons are a great deal if you want to do those things. It makes it a better deal than getting discount tickets. The DisneyQuest admission alone makes up the difference.

I've got resort reservations (room only) for 3 nights in December at a deluxe. I haven't purchased the tickets yet though - Can I upgrade my room reservations to a package? (Is it worthwhile for that short of a time?)

Question...

I have a room-only reservation for December and recently bought tickets through Disney online. I don't think this automatically made it a package, but I'm wondering if it's worth it to try and call to see if can be converted to one? I guess it would just depend if I felt the coupons and 'free' stuff was worth paying my room balance at 45 days versus at check-in? Am I missing something?
