    You do not get a bounceback when you stay on points.

    Well that's a bummer! We are staying tonight & tomorrow night at WL on a cash ressie so maybe we'll get one there. I've never booked a BB - I'm more a last minute booker - how do they work? What is the deposit & can the dates be changed at a later time? AP discounts have really gone down in the last year so I thought if BB is at least 35% I'd do that instead for October.

    I would recommend doing a search on the resort boards about current bounce back offers or even start your own thread there. I think I read in the past that you can book the bounce back offer if you are on a cash ressie whether the flyer is in your room or not. Maybe just give CRO a call while you are at WL and ask about it? Or ask at the front desk for a flyer in order to get the code.

    They haven't been using flyers this year. Check the folder you are given at check-in. There should be a booklet in there and somewhere in the middle of it, is the magic BB offer! (a calendar showing all the dates included in the offer for all of 2013) ;)

    I got it when we stayed DVC and when we stayed in regular resort rooms! :thumbsup2


    Safe travels Tara!

    I just found it! It's called the Be Our Guest Guide and the calendar - perforated for easy removel (;)) - is in the center. "Before you check out, book select dates below and save up to 35% on select Disney Resort hotel stays!" Future dates include:

    April 14-30
    May 1-21 and 28-31
    June 1- 8
    Aug 4-31
    Sept 1-30
    Oct 1-5 and 20-31
    Nov 1 & 2 and 17-23 and 30
    Dec 1-4 and 15-19.

    Brochure says 35% off Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts,
    35% off Disney Deluxe Resort,
    30% off Disney Moderate Resorts.

    There is nothing listed about Values, but when I called from my resort in February, I was told Values are included (I didn't ask what %).

    Thanks! I saw the dates you posted below...I will be calling to check while I'm there!

    We don't leave until 5:30pm tonight, arriving into MCO at 7:50. Good thing MK is open til midnight, we'll be hitting that even if only for an hour. While I'm super excited to be trying WL CL for the 1st time, I can't wait to go home to AKV on Friday!

    I could "see" the fireworks from my room. I was in Jambo, 5th floor, Savannah View. I think I was room 5421. I could see them over the rest of the building, to the left of us. So, the rest of the Jambo building...Sheesh, I am really no help at all, I am sorry...I'm not doing a good job explaining. :guilty: I could see the Everest Ride from my balcony as well...The fireworks were pretty obstructed, but I had no idea it was even possible, so I was excited to see them!
