They aren't guaranteed the 50% off, though. Depending upon availability, they can get 25%, 40% or 50% (50% if the CM is also staying in the room)
Also, at times there may be no discounted rooms available ~

I liked it alot at Chatham. It wasnt as wild there as everybody says it is at Vista. I was under 21 when I was down there, and I saw alot of underage drinking. U have to be stupid and draw attention to yourself if you are usually caught, there are obviously exceptions though. Its smart to avoid the temptation though, but sometimes you cant help it. Its a party supportive atmosphere. Im kinda wanting to get put at Vista this time around to see a different side of the living experience and be able to compare them both. Chatham was a great place, I lived in 21101 and it was a cool locale. The funny thing was we would see people getting dropped off and jumping the fences at the side entrance all the time. That was hard to get used to

My daughter really wanted Vista but got Chatham. She was so glad that she did. She did the program twice and loved it at Chatham. Didn't have a car and used the bus to get everywhere.

I lived at Vista, and it wasn't as bad as everyone says it is. All my roommates and myself were over 21, we usually had a small amount of alcohol in the apartment, but we never really had any big parties. There were parties in the complex, but if you didn't attend, it was possible to pretty much avoid/ignore them. The apartment at Vista was actually nicer than the apartment I had lived in my senior year at SU.

My DD will be going Feb 1st for the Spring Advantage. I would like to visit as much as possible, so I would really like to get the 50% off as much as I can.

Are there any "hints" as to when to try for the more discounted rooms? And, are there certain resorts that give them more often than others? I understand that our DD must stay in the room with us as well, is there a problem with her doing that and having to go to work?

DH and I got an Annual Pass so hopefully we will get a discount when we go down to move her in. After we get all of her "move-in stuff" done we want to go to the parks for a few days before heading back home.

I dont think the risk of getting hammered one night is worth it. I would rather not drink that much for 5 months than get kicked out.

How bad is the bug situation in Vista and Chatham? I am sure there are maintainence crews that spray the place often...but I don't think I am ready to see a hundred roaches scurrying out from under my bed when I wake up.

Ohh no. It's a VERY big deal. I knew a LOT of people that got terminated for alcohol. Just don't take that chance. If you get terminated from Disney, you can't work for ANY of Disney's companies. And there are a LOT of them.

During the 4 months I lived at Vista, I never saw a roach in my apartment. Saw a few little geckos, but those are harmless, and they eat mosquitoes, so I don't mind having them around.

I know that you are assigned to an apartment when you arrive, but do they ask you whether you'd rather live at Vista or Chatham? or has that already been decided before you arrive?

No they don't ask you. It all depends on where they are assigning people that day.
