    Amccu, is the price on property comparable to regular price or do they gouge? The convenience would be good to get on site, but my real motivator is to get as much time there as possible. If ME is 2-3 hrs to get there, and you have to leave 3 hrs before flight on departure, that's at least 4 hrs cut from Disney time. Considering we most likely wont be going again soon, that's important to us. And if we can beat the ME rush to check in we might get an upgrade :) wishful dreaming, I know lol

    ME will not take 2-3 hours upon arrival. It should be 90 minutes tops, and that is if you are the last stop in the resort loop for your bus. You would still need to leave Disney 3 hours early in a private vehicle to get to the airport to account for traffic and security lines. I wouldn't be shocked if they temporarily extend the pickup timeframe now that sequestration has hit the airlines.

    Not sure on the fruit as we always got some with our meals and brought it back to the rooms but milk was reasonable. It def. would not be worth it to take the time out to shop if those were the only things that you wanted. Also, room assignments are decided weeks before you get there so in reality getting there early wouldn't help you at all IMO. It takes us on average 1 hour to get from plane to resort PLUS we don't have to wait for our bags. You will be waiting 20-30 minutes alone just for that. You can also, depending on the airline, check your bags at the resort earlier in the day and not have to waste time at the airport for that.

    Milk was around $3 for a half gallon. So not cheap but not scary.

    Ok, thanks to both of you, definitely things to consider! The wait time was listed as such by the unofficial guide & some other website guides also, but maybe they're at diff times of yr. they cited weekends being the worst times, which we are arriving/leaving on sun/sat so I just expected the worst.

    Marking my spot in hopes for a discount. Trying to decide if I should go for my 40th/Halloween and kicking myself for not booking the bounceback when we were there in January. It was an annoying trip and I wasn't feeling the Disney Magic when we checked out.

    PIN codes come from Disney Destinations, but not all Disney Destinations emails are PIN codes. Some are newsletters and some are just advertisements. The advertisements will have a 3-digit booking code, but a true PIN has a 15-digit booking code. There are currently no PINs that include October. The only active PIN is a room offer for 4/28-8/14/13. Good luck! :goodvibes

    I have a question that I'm hoping someone can answer. I've always traveled in February, and never had this issue before.

    I have held off making my reservation as long as possible, hoping Disney would roll out some discounts.

    I'll be making my reservation either today or tomorrow, as my 180 days + 10 will be on Thursday, and I don't want to miss out on that.

    If I book today and place a deposit, but do not pay in full, are the park ticket prices subject to change?

    I know park ticket prices will be going up in June, so what happens if our packages are not paid off before June?

    Also, what happens if Disney finally comes out with an offer in July or August, will we now be subject to the park ticket price increase? :headache:

    We booked our Gartner Symposium stay today through Gartner.

    YC, BC, BWI & GF were already sold out through the conference (NOT the resorts themselves but the allotted # of Gartner-priced rooms), so we booked Polynesian. She had a bit of trouble getting our first night, but finally got it.

    I'm hoping for a code, though, that will allow us to stay closer to the conference.

    Yes, if you call and modify your existing reservation by adding a discount code, you will have to pay the difference in the ticket price increase. They started this new policy last fall.

Planning to celebrate a 30th Wedding Anniversary, Retirement, Hubby's 60th Birthday(a surprise at 50's Prime Time) and the Grandson's 7th Birthday with dinner at 1900 Park Fare! Daughter is surprising the grandkids with the trip! Hope everyone has a great time there!

    Do you have a link to the thread? This reads more like 3 digit advertisement, not a 15 digit PIN discount.

    If you book now, you are locked in at the current ticket price. If the ticket price increases and you modify your reservation after that effective date (ie. add a discount, add park hopper, etc), you will have to pay the increase on your park tickets.
