    If you don't mind, can you post information on your military room discount for 2013:

    1. Resort
    2. Room type(s)
    3. Dates of your stay
    4. Approximate date you booked with the military discount

    Thank you!! Just trying to instill some hope that I will ever get a miltary discount on a 1 or 2 bedroom villa at BLT. Several CMs have told me they're not excluded, just not available right now. Boo.

    1. AoA
    2. Cars suite
    3. 4/20 - 4/26
    4. 9/5

    I also tried to book a LM room at AoA for the same time period, none were available. cM said that she didn't think they were exclude, but we couldn't find a period where one was available with the discount so I don't know.

    Since I started this thread, I guess I should post my own (partial) success:

    1. BLT
    2. Studio
    3. 4/28-5/5
    4. 8/20/12

    Still hoping to add the military discount to the 1 bedroom villa we also need for the same dates, or better yet, change the entire reservation to a 2 bedroom villa with military discount (wishful thinking, but pixie dust might fall...). Fun time either way! Keeping fingers crossed.

    Booked at BLT
    2 bedroom villa
    6/3-6/7
    9/12/12

    I knew we got really lucky to get this, but i didn't know we were that lucky...The phone operator even told me it wouldn't be available until the DVCers had their first shot. We have 5 adults and 2 kids so we were limited in places that fit us all.

    Go to the official Disney web site. Enter the word specials. Scroll down and on the left it list military discounts. I'm pretty sure they had room only and pass discounts listed now for 2013 for military.

    Called last week to book Military rate at Moderate for 2/8-2/11.
    POFQ only had military discount available with a King bed.
    POR only had Royal Rooms available
    Plenty of rooms available at Coronado in most categories.

    It is just a bummer that the room I want is not available with the discount (only a limited number of rooms for this offer).

    I am not going in 2013, but in 52 days, and just booked it Tuesday.

    WL
    Bunkbed room/courtyard view(we didn't want a bunkbed, but that is the only room the discount applied to. daughter is 12, she will sleep on it, :))
    11/25/12-12/1/12
    10/8/12

    Can't beat the savings over rate on website, on top of discounted park hopper passess.

    Now, if I could just find airfare at what I want to pay, life would be great!

    1. Wilderness Lodge
    2. Woods View, though at the time I booked they had every type avaliable. Still considering upgrading to WV Bunk
    3. Jan 29-Feb 3
    4. Orginally booked AOA Lion King, then AOA Cars, then AKL Standard, then AKL PV, and now WL WV. Haha, don't ask. I can't make up my mind! I booked AOA the first day the discount came out and changed every few weeks it seems. I finally book WL mid September.

    Won't help with the BLT hope, but here is mine:

    1. Resort: Beach club
    2. Room type(s): Garden view (standard was out, but we wanted GV anyway and I'd forgotten to ask the TA)
    3. Dates of your stay: 6/20-6/28
    4. Approximate date you booked with the military discount: today, Oct 6.

    If you are interested in hotels not on property, my family loves to stay at Gaylord Palms and we always get a great military rate. We have paid $96 a night there. That is cheaper than Shades of Green for us.

    Also... wanted to add to my post above.

    We live in Tampa, daughter is a competitive cheerleader with lots of competitions in Orlando so we stay in Orlando a lot. When a bunch of cheer mom's get together to stay together we stay at Westgate Lakes Resort and get a condo style room with 3-4 bedrooms. They also offer a military discount. HOWEVER, WGL they inist on taking you sales pitch tour. But we turned them down flat to take the tour. Great place for very large groups 12+ people all in same condo.
