    I'm not a cm but I was able to get the dining discount last July. It was even over the 4th. Didn't come out until sometime in June.

    She would need to check and book the initial reservation. I'd have her call the CM booking line - LM rooms are ellig for the 40% Friends and Family offer.

    If they release the deeper discounts it's usually in 2ish month increments. Depending on your dates and where it falls it could be fairly close to your actual check in (but there are no fees regardless of how close you are when changing over).

    Are the LM rooms available for the 40% in July?

    I tried doing a quick search for you and right now with F&F I could not get LM rooms to even come up. Only family suites come up under the discount. As of right now for July it is 40%. I would need your dates to help you more. PM me if you want me to help you out so you don't have to bug your friend. I won't book it for you since I don't know you but I can let you know if it is even worth bugging your friend about.

    Saw you're working with other poster, but they are INCLUDED in the 40%... doesn't mean they'll be available though.

    Good luck.

    Any idea what end of September looks like for F&F? My DD is starting in August and we already planned a September trip before she got the position. If we can save a few bucks that would be awesome.:cool1:

    They must be call in only then or not available. Sometimes I use not included but I should have just said unavailable. I know for the current 50% LM rooms are not included in that.

    Yeah, they're excluded with the 50% F&F, but are included with the 40%. If it's not showing up online, they're probably just isn't any availability which doesn't surprise me. I've only seen success with it booking pretty far out in this year.

    To the PP - The normal F&F rate is 40% so you can count on that for September at least. Availability may be pretty limited if your daughter isn't booking until August.

    Thanks for the help. We ended up getting a cars suite for 40% off. If you all hear of the discount on the suites going to 50% or better or a dining plan discount, please keep me posted. Now thar I have my reservation number, can I call and check if the discount gets better?

    I just booked an F&F for AoA in November with 40% discount. Seems the DP discounts are coming out in chunks. Right now they only have F&F DP discounts thru May but it looks excellent for a DP discount in November to be released sometime in the August/September time frame.

    We are going on a CM discount in October, so I called to ask about adding the dining plan. She told me to call back later in the summer that the DP discount is only out through Aug. 15th now.

    Any idea when the CM discount for DP Aug 16 on may be out? Anyone have a idea how much it will be? (15% or do you think it will be different?) Thank you for your help.

    Probably the same percentage. Usually they don't come out until much closer to the last booking. Probably the last week in July/first week August for the next wave of discounts.

    However, the discounts are out through 8/17. If they don't release back to back dates (starting on the 18th) you will probably be better off sticking with the regular discount and full price DP. Anything outside the offered dates jumps to full price.

    Thanks, are dates are 8/16 thru 8/23 so I think we will go with the CM room discount take the full price DM rather then wait it out, if it changes down the road so be it. Thank you for your help.
