    This may or may not be allowed in the forum so im going to post it anyway. If its not allowed feel free to delete it: Now for the info.


    So I have been calling Disney all day to add a room to my reservation, Unfortunately the system has been down ALL DAY. So my last try at 2020 Hrs I got to speak to a VERY nice CM. We got to talking about PIN codes and I asked him to explain how they work "playing ignorant" Among alot of interesting things he told me about which im not going to write he said you can book up to three rooms. So I asked him to elaborate on that three room part. He stated to me " If your family of four needed two rooms for your vacation and your neighbor wanted to go, you could book them under your pin for the third room". So to make ure I herd him correctly I stated "so it doed not nessesarily have to be everyone from one house" He responded no, as long as the person who got the code is in the party.

    So much for the old strict adherence to households on pin codes!

    You’ve always been able to book multiple rooms. It will all be linked under one reservation. The person who received the pin code is the lead on the reservation and in the traveling party. Disney doesn’t expect one person to be in all three rooms. I mean, my neighbor has 6 kids—they’re a family of 8 just in their immediate family. They can’t stay anywhere (minus DVC) without being in two rooms.

    I would so totally go with you at whatever time you're going if you could include me on your PIN ressie. Paying my full price, of course. That would be so awesome if that's the new policy. Surely, enough Dis'ers could band together and do "PIN shares" right?:thumbsup2 :cool1:

    I always was under the understanding that these codes were guarded prety tightly.

    Seems the Pin Share may be a good idea in this economy... All three of my rooms are gone tho :-(.

    Going as far back as 2002, I booked three rooms on a pin code that I received. The person to whom the code is assigned still has to be the lead person, making the reservations, be staying in one of the rooms, etc. I'm not sure this is anything new. Honestly though, we haven't received or needed a pin code since becomming DVC members in 2004, so things could have changed and now changed back.

    What issues people have posted about is wanting to use or share other's codes. Not so much wanting to book multiple rooms for themselves and whomever.
    OP may be thinking of AP codes, where now one room can be booked per adult AP holder. (It use to be up to 3 rooms.)

    I was told the same thing. When I called to book with my 40% off code. The cm asked how many rooms I wanted. I asked if I could bring my parents and they said I could book up to 3 rooms with my code.

    I think the issue has arisen when others post where a neighbor/friend/family member has rec'd a code, but does not plan to visist WDW. However a person who does not have the code, nor in the household, wants to use it.

    You could always do that- the restriction on pin codes is that the person who is doing the booking has to be the one who has received the pin code in his name.
    In other words, if you get a pin code in your name, you cannot give that pincode to your neighbor to use. If the neighbor calls to book a room using the pin code that you gave him , the CM will not honor the code.

    This happend to us last year...My cousin received a code we did not. When she booked they gave her what they called a travel together #. When I called to book I gave that # and we received the same discount. Funny thing though my cousin and her husband bought a house and canceled their trip we still got the discount....but later switched to a free dining code I received sort of last minute that saved us more

    Most likely your cousin did not get a PIN but a CODE (3 letter)... Otherwise, if the PIN holder cancels, the whole package gets canceled.

    We booked at Christmas with a pin my daughter who is in college got on her email. It was attached to her address at college. She was with us but the reservation was in our name at our address. No one ever asked about her or even if she was there when my husband and I checked in. Maybe they assumed I was her or just didnt care. I really dont understand how it works and was a little surprised she didnt have to be there at check in. (She actually was with us just not at the desk)
