    I received an e-mail from AAA with a deal offering a 2 month trial membership for only $10. I was wondering if it would be worth signing up for the trail offer in order to book our room for September? Do I only need to be a member when making the reservation or must I still be a member when I go to check-in? Also, if I receive the AAA discount, can I also add the dining package to our vacation?
    Also, do I call Disney or AAA to book the room?

    Thanks for all your help?

    If you decide to ask for the AAA discount for Sept., you will need to be a AAA member in Sept. as well. From my understanding, they will ask to see your card for verification. If you would like the dining added on and want the AAA discount then you will have to set it up with a AAA travel agent. This is the way we opted to go. If you just want the room only reservation, then you can book that directly with Disney.

    Whenever we have gotten a discount with AAA, we needed to show our card at the time of check-in, purchase, etc.

    Is this trial offer you received only for you or is it a general code or something available to others - If it is, would you share the code with us?

    Thanks! Michelle

    Think about this. A typical AAA membership costs about $40 / year. Booking Disney through AAA saves around 20%. On a week's stay that adds up to a lot more than the $30 you would save with your trial membership. If you don't have any other way to save, join AAA but do it quick because they often "sell out" of rooms available. :earboy2:

    We like to use AAA not only for disney but if we go on overnight vacations to say the shore or something else it saves us a ton of money.

    We did the AAA discount and got the dining package as well. We booked through AAA.

    Payment terms are identical to WDW if you book through AAA. $200 down and balance due 45 days out.
