    I know there are a lot of us waiting for the next discount to be released. I'm just not sure what approximate date I should be circling on my calendar to wait for with bated breath.

    I thought I read somewhere end of March but free dining for the general public for Aug/Sept 2012 stays was released March 5th.

    Or are we supposed to be waiting until the current spring promotion is over (i.e. end of May)?

    I'm so confused...

    I have. Unfortunately, I didn't see anything in there that indicated when it's believed the next discount would be released.

    Is everyone just waiting indefinitely or is there an expected time frame? That's what I'm wondering.

    Isn't the current spring discount over the end of march? I thought that's what I read which would be better than end of may. Anyone know this?

    Save on travel for stays most nights February 18 through March 23, 2013 and April 2 through June 14, 2013. Book by May 31, 2013."

    I am counting down to March 20 which is when Danny25 has suggested he might have information to share with us.

    I'm pretty sure they have been releasing the Fall disount between March-May, so I think something new should pop up soon and I'm hoping it's the FDP. We'll see...

    Disney has run 2 promos at once right? Because FD might be good for a family of 5 but 30% of YC might be better for a couple. I thought one of their promos you had to book by March 7th? Was it extended? I thought March 8th I'd be hearing some news lol :rotfl2:

    This is the only discount that I have access to and it says to book by May 31st:

    http://bookwdw.reservations.disney....ionCode=fy13q2q3roomCA&market=fy13q2q3roomCAP

    I'm Canadian so I think that's why there is a difference (and where my confusion was stemming from).

    Thank you so very much for posting that link and clearing things up for me!!

    Last year the promo for aug/sept dates came out on March 5th, you are correct! Also Disney has had two promos out at once but they didn't cover the exact same dates, it differed a bit. I would say the latest we will see the next promo is April, and that's at the latest, my guess is we will see it sooner then that tho, going by past years. It could be a room discount or FD, that's something else we don't know but my guess is FD and released in march. :)

    The U.S. website has this:

    and another link has this, but it is the same info:

    That means that a new discount should be up in April, I hope. ;) They usually release the new one after the current one expires.

    from what I understand (as a PP mentioned), *if* discounts come out, you could accept a room-only discount or free dining.

    If I wanted free dining, could I still use a AAA discount on the room? (I guess I'm wondering if AAA discount counts as a promotion/discount that can't be combined with other promotions/discounts)

    Disney does not allow the stacking of discounts whether they are Disney's or an outside source. You will have to figure out which one saves you the most money and go with that.
