I don't think I ever did a RO only reservation until much more recently than 2005. I tended to go for the package discounts (room + tix), which is where I regularly found 40% off. We did FD the first year it was offered, and kind of enjoyed it. Of course, then it included appetizers for all, dessert and tip. A better deal, I thought, though I still didn't care for having to make all the ADRs to maximize the value of the plan. In the back of my mind, though, I still felt weird about paying rack rate for the room. In 2001, right after 9/11, we stayed at the Poly for at least 40% (it may have even been a higher discount, but I can't be sure) off, and the tickets were all park hoppers then. But this was kind of a desperate move for WDW, as the parks and resorts were largely empty that early fall. I'd be willing to bet others saved more than we did. I wasn't a Disboard lurker then, so I didn't know the latest and greatest on discounts.
