    If you are looking for late May discounts, check out Pixie Vacations. They have summer kickoff special that they are running. I just booked a stay at the Poly with their special.

    I'm going the end of May too. I requested several times for a quote from Pixie. But never got a response. I asked for it by email though because I don't have time to sit and talk on the phone so maybe they just don't work thru email? :confused3

    We did this to stay longer. We booked Beach Club on weekday rates and the other two for weekend. It would have been a lot more if we stayed the beach club the whole trip, which didn't really fit into the budget. No one in my family has ever stayed on site. I figured we can stay at one of the each levels of resorts (value, moderate, and deluxe) and see which one we like best...and the prove to my dad that the values wont be so bad! (He's skeptical!)

    I'm a Disney Visa member also..but didn't receive the email. Maybe because I had already booked? I did find it though. I've been on hold for 47 minutes and counting to see if they can even apply it to our ressies.....

    We have a Disney Visa and I didn't get an email (for what it's worth, I hardly ever receive any emails from them) but I had read that a promotion was coming out on January 3rd. When I read a post that it came out to Disney Visa holders early, I called and had it applied. Let us know how your call goes. Hopefully, you can apply it to your existing reservation like I did and save some money.

    Well, after about an hour on hold I was unsuccessful at applying the discount. The agent said that because of our travel dates (May 25-June 1) our last day would have to be separately booked and we could not do dining with a one day reservation. We would only save about $300 doing this..but then it would not be a true savings because our last day would no longer include dining. This is very confusing to me. I know before when we've had a code, as long as it was valid for your first day of stay then it was valid for your entire length of stay. I'm not sure why that isn't true with this one.... Anywho...Maybe another play, stay and dine will be released for May..but I doubt it.

    Doubtful....andthis is a sign that Disney is really cutting back discounts....no more free dining and now no more "as long as your chech in date is included, all your days are".:sad2::sad2::rolleyes::sad2::sad2::sad2:

    Not to nitpick, but the "as long as your check in date is included, all your days are" has only applied to free dining....never to the room discounts, so that aspect is nothing new.

    Hum....that doesn't make sense to me at all. Our travel dates are May 22 to June 1st and I was able to apply the discount to all of our days and add the dining plan.
