    Hi all! It's been a while since I posted.. I guess real life just got busy.. We have Jess than 4 months and just over a month until our final payment is due, which is scary considering what we just spent on Christmas.. Where's the money coming from to pay ?? Lol
    As I was reading over the many pages of posts that I missed 2 things popped out at me.
    1. Is there really a possibility that there will b a discount for our trip?? If what a pp saw on the planning DVD then we squeak by in April by 2 days.. Please Disney discount gods.. Lol
    2. The new Fp system. This could b a problem. We are going with my Bil/sil and niece and nephew but we booked seperately. What if one of us doesn't get chosen? The whole point of going together is to be able to ride together.. Lol

    yes, the new discounts will be out on the 3rd. the discount varies by resort and date (no rhyme or reason) so its not like "all values 20% off". according to my calculations it looks like ill save about 10% on our trip ~ about $300ish. better than nothing iguess but still disappointing.

    im ignoring the possibility of FP+ bein/ out. im not a fan

    Our 1st trip to Disney in April and are keeping our fingers crossed for discounts. If not, then we will have to re-arrange our dining plan!

    Just booked our April vacation with the Disney Visa spring discount. We'll be there 4/14-4/19 at AofA in a Lion King suite. I am so so excited!!! I haven't been to WDW since high school, and this will be my DD4's first trip. She is overwhelmingly obsessed with Lion King, she is going to flip out when she sees where we are staying!!!

    Im going at the end of the month for only 4 days. I was only going to save about 115 bucks staying at POP. Mine was only a Room Only + Tickets discount. Was that the kind of discount they gave you too, or was your a package discount?

    OK. Here's how it worked out for us. After waiting for a while I was able to find an agent that could get us the correct deal. This is the same deal that goes out to the public on the 3rd in case anyone is wondering. After much deliberation we decided to move to POR in a preferred room. I was able to get into a preferred room at a moderate resort for roughly the same price I was spending in a non-preferred room at a value resort.

    So go ahead and move us from POP to POR on the front page. Same dates different resort.

    Unfortunately POFQ is the only moderate resort not included in the Disney VISA offer. So no discount for us as dh is comfortable there.

    I noticed that some new folks have joined us over the last few days and others have made some changes. When I get a chance to be on the desktop, I will update the first post. If i overlook you, send me a PM. (I tried to update the first post once on this tablet and that is not an adventure I will go on again - a nightmare it was.)

    YAY- just rebooked my current trip with the new Disney Visa promo and saved a little over $600 and didn't have to change anything. Disd have to cancel curent trip and rebook though since the old reservation was a room only and this one was a package. I got 25% at POR preferred room, and there WAS a discount on my 7 day tix- but haven't done the math to see what the % is. I can tell anyone wondering that is WAS slightly cheaper than the mousesavers 7 day tix!!

    I also switched my ressie to POR and took advantage of the discount. Our trip is half the days as yours which is why we saved half the amount you did I guess. But we are going on the Dream for a few days afterwards. Im hoping for discounts there too, but I dont think its going to happen. I feel like I won something today. It was nice to get into a preferred room at a moderate for virtually the same price I was paying for a standard room at a value. Patience is a virtue I guess. Free dining or some type of reduced package would have been nice too, but the room only discount along with the discounted tix was nice. The lady that did my booking said that this was probably going to be the type of promotions that they are using from now on. Apparently she said Disney is losing money on that free dining option. I cant see how though since the food quality has dropped since they started that promo.
