My DD has a friend doing the program right now, but she leaves on Jan. 5th, I'm wondering if she can book a room for us with the CM discount now (while she's still working) or if it has to be while she's still there. If not, we are eligible for the military discount, which would probably be just a few dollars more. We're DVC members too -- but I think we'll just stay at a value since it will only be the two of us. I think we'll use Magical Express to and from the resort, and hire a taxi to get to Vista Way in the morning. Rental car rates are really high for our arrival as it's during a big marathon weekend. I believe these options will be less expensive overall that staying at the Holiday Inn across from Vista Way and have to pay for transfers.
