Can I Book a Room Now and Adjust Rate Later?j

If a room rate discount becomes available after I book the room (thinking AKL Villa 1 bedroom) can I call back and have that discount rate applied without any problem?

Thanks

Yes! I have done this several times.

Best thing is to call the day the discounts come out and have it applied to your room. The number of rooms are/maybe limited to receive the discount.

Thanks
As long as what you have booked is available under the discount, you can have it applied to your existing reservation. Since Disney releases discounts to fill rooms, not all resorts and/or room types are included in discounts. With that said, sometimes you have to be flexible with your resort/room type to take advantage of a discount as having a reservation already in place does not guarantee a discount can be applied.

You can't count on it. I've had to upgrade from Std to GV to get the discount I wanted. Still cheaper, but not as cheap as it would have been if I could apply it to a Std rate. There were times when I was told no discount was available for my particular resort.

Ahhh. Ok. Thanks!

We haven't stayed on property for many years. Is there a guess or a way to know what time of year the Feb 2015 room only discounts come out?

Thanks again

Mousesavers has a list of when the discounts have been released for the past several years:
http://www.mousesavers.com/historica...ort-discounts/

I would guess February discounts will first start appearing in early Fall (assuming they have any). They've been cutting back on the discounts, so there is no way to know what will be offered (if anything) next year.
