    Luckily it is the weekend AFTER Easter. So if any discount were to become available it probably would not begin until that weekend. I know we were there in 2008 when it was spring break for the north east and we had some sort of discount or gift card promo. It really seems as if the discounts have mostly been blacked out the week up to and then the week following a major holiday or event. I hope it's rings true again.

    I just thought of something.... I have never had a discount's start date happen in the middle of a vacation. If that were to happen would I have to have two reservations or could the discount be applied to the portion of the reservation falling in the discount's dates?

    you'd have to have 2 reservations. maybe a room only at first and then switch to the package. I know you can pick up your passes early - not sure exactly how early, I want to say 2 or 3 days - so you'd be able to start using your park passes then. But if you had the DP you couldn't start using that 'til your package started.

    It would have to be a pretty big discount for us to go through that. We are at POFQ anyway and most recent discounts on that resort have been very small. Time to sit back now cross my fingers and see what happens:)

    if it's only a day or two in, it's not that bad. You'd still have your passes to use right away, you just wouldn't be able to use the DP those first 1-2 days. If it's any later in that that, I agree it might not be worth it. (esp. if you're depending on the dining plan)
    When we went last year we had to do the first night as room only b/c the special started on the 2nd day. So I had 2 ressies.

    Did you just have to go back down to the desk and check in again? You were able to stay in the same room weren't you?

    Subbing! We're hoping to go end of April or beginning of May. Still figuring that out and hoping for a discount!

    Dang it!

    Just got my first PIN and it's only valid thru 3/7.

    Hoping to go 4/1 to 4/6. Hopefully they'll send me a PIN for that timeframe.

    With Easter being 3/31 next year, I don't think a PIN is likely. My PINs for spring say for stays most nights 1/2-3/24, 4/21-5/22 and 8/11-9/28/13.

    Yea it might just be a 'code' which links you to the current promotion, which expires 3/7 :(

    Looking to take the entire blended family of 7, April 13-20, 2013. Crossing fingers for some discounts. Was looking forward to a suite at AofA, but with 7 we would need another room, looks like we squeeze into 2 preferred value rooms.

    PIXIE MANDY!!!

    What promo pin did you get for 4/21-5/22? Just curious. Maybe it's a precursor to releasing some deals for those dates to the general public *fingers crossed*.

    Thanks! Hope they release it to the general public as I am never lucky with getting a PIN I can use- all I get is Disneyland, cruise, or Adventures..... not what I want.

    That's exactly the discounts I've been hoping for, and getting to choose between room discounts and free dining is even better!! I sooo hope it comes to the general public soon, I would book my dates instantly! *fingers crossed*
