    Like everyone else, I've been obsessed with these General codes coming out. Well, I called Disney and got a room only quote before I joined AAA. They told me 7 nights at Pop would be $664 w/tax. That's a rate of $84 night as opposed to $99, what I originally was paying. So I gave in and joined AAA for $49 a year. We really needed it anyway, my DH is famous for locking the keys in the car. Well, I printed out my temp cards and call Disney to apply to my ressie and the total was only $656 ($8 less than they quoted me the day before). That's a rate of $83 per night. I also got the new Mousesavers newsletter and used the link to order discount tickets. So here is my total savings:

    7 nights @ POP + 3 adult (7 day) base tickets + 1 child (7 day) base ticket=

    AAA Package Quote: $1474
    Disney MYW Package Quote: $1593.27

    My Plan: Disney Room-only with AAA discount: $656
    Ticketmania with Mousesavers discount: $749
    ______
    TOTAL $1405

    Total savings: $69 cheaper than AAA MYW Package
    $188 cheaper than Disney MYW Package

    Would you mind telling what type of tickets you are getting for that price? I got the link for the discounted tickets from the mousesavers newsletter, but I have not priced them out yet. Thanks!

    Take your AAA card everywhere. There are all sorts of discounts that you would not even think about. As an example, I was at discount outlet. My friend saw the AAA sign. So, we enquired and got a whole brochure with different discounts. I saved $300 in one day! (including 33% at Polo)
    Last summer we also went to universal. Show the card every time you buy any food and save %10. It really added up.
    I'm sure others have a lot of different examples - anyone care to share?

    I went to the link from the mousesavers newsletter and bought 3 (ages 10+) and 1 (ages -10) 7-day base tickets. We didn't get any add-ons. The total was $749. I was going to buy them from Disney for $757. I saved only $8, but hey that's a whole burger at WDW! :rotfl:
    They give you free shipping and this price includes tax.

    I also have been hoping for general room codes for our June 8th-15th trip. I've been watching the boards probably too much! lol I finally gave up and went through the SOG overflow program. I ended up getting Port Orleans Riverside for $94 a night plus tax. This is pretty good isn't it?

    I do believe that is a good deal. I have ressies at SOG Thanksgiving week....we stayed there in Jan. too for 7 nights. Once a few years ago..we got Poly at the same rate as SOG just we had to pay tax. That was the best deal.

    I have been a AAA member for years and i have saved plenty. I too called WDW and got a room only ressie for the same price of $84.00 a nite at POP. I was going to wait until if any general codes come out, but I think after seeing all the commercials and ads that they may not offer them. I was given the number of a AA agent in SC to do my new ressie, but I will hold out unitl April to see if there is any changes and then make a whole new ressie.
