    I did the same thing, only with my best friend. But thats what we wanted, so tell him the little lie and watch his face when you get into your room!

    Well, before I went into detail about the price difference, I made sure DH knew about the free breakfast, snacks, appetizers and drinks. ;)
    Less than 5 months before our trip to AKL-CL...but who's counting? :rotfl2:

    My position is that they all secretly hope that we do exactly what you did, that's why once you're there, you will never hear him ask exactly how much that room was! Mine actually just demanded we try concierge this time. What the heck is going on around here? When he asked if the difference was much, I simply said, "no, not really especially when you think about everything we're getting for that"! Ha, I booked club level that very hour! Love it. Have fun, Animal Kingdom is my absolute favorite.

    Absolutely tell a little white lie or tell him nothing. I never tell my DH how much our trip actually costs! :rotfl2:

    My best friend and I have gone to WDW once and DL twice together. She insists on paying half of the room, but she's always doing really nice things for me and she's limited by a military salary. She knows I like looking for discounts on the DIS, but to hear her tell it, I can get Disney stays for practically nothing with all my research. Why? Because I told her that her half of the bill at the Poly and the DL Hotel was ... ummm ... a bit less than my credit card bill might indicate.

    Just my little secret. ;)

    Well, until she told her co-workers, and I had to research their trips and then claim that the discounts are really unpredictable. :eek: Not entirely untrue, though, as discounts are really unpredictable.

    So, yeah, lie. I haven't been struck by lightning yet.

    I think your "Allygirl pin code" discount is sweet. You're a very nice friend.
    If her co-workers can't match, well, we all know it's hard to land one of those codes. Tell 'em to keep calling CRO. :laughing:

    I'm sure I will lie at some point while trying to please someone going with me. This time it won't work, because it's my honeymoon and he's paying for the trip.
    Though AKL Concierge does sound wonderful, and I might end up there...

    I've changed my mind so many times that I really think the prices have started to look lower...some how $335 for a AKL Concierge room seems inexpensive when compared to a Honeymoon Suite at the Poly.
