    The military discount is available. We take advantage of it every year for out accommodation. Though we are annual passholders we do not take advantage of the military ticket special because our stays are longer than the tickets are good for. The annual passes end up saving us money because we visit on our two times per year.

    Our Disney Vacation Expert guarantees the best rate (Information in my signature). She can answer your questions if you have any at all. If an offer opens after you make your booking she will automatically book your vacation for the better offer as many times as needed in order to maximize your savings. We have noticed that Disney has released their offers later and later depending upon bookings at certain times of the year.

    We book into Deluxe Villas and will become Disney Vacation Club members soon as a result of how much we give Disney on an annual basis.

    Hope this helps.

    I usually stay onsite, but this time I went through a third party and got a one bedroom at Bonnet Creek for ten nights/eleven days for May 10th-20th, for just $895.00. Normally an AP discount beats any other discount out there for me, but not this time. There is no way even an AP discount can beat $89.50/night, even for a value resort in May (regular season), much less a moderate which is where I usually stay. AP discounts for a moderate have been running 25%-30% this year. Through a third party booking company (Vacation Strategies), Bonnet Creek gives me a one bedroom condo with alot more room, washer/dryer, jacuzzi tub, fully equipped kitchen, nicer pools, hot tubs, and a lazy river, for a cheaper price. Plus I don't have to wait around hoping for a room discount from Disney. I was planning on renting a car anyway and this way I am still physically on property and just as close to the parks as the onsite resorts.

    We went ahead and booked with the military discount. Thinking this will be our best bet unless they happen to release free dining, but I doubt they will. May 7 - May 13th. Cannot wait!!!!!:banana:

    Nope, no progress. Well, a few people, myself included have gone ahead and booked, put down deposits, but it seems like a few of them will pull out if no promo is offered.

    Still waiting. I am hoping for after the 13th, when the current Holiday season promo expires, others are thinking after December entirely.

    You all should consider staying off property, it's much cheaper!

    We considered it for our honeymoon, but we decided that for my first trip we wanted the magic and convenience of staying on property. We're also not going to be 25, so car rental is much more expensive for us, which cuts into the savings we might be able to get by staying off-property.
    For future trips we probably won't stay at Disney, at least until our kids are old enough to appreciate the magic of staying on property.

    It all depend on the discount. Our kids count as adults so QSDP is costing us $1500. Free dining would definitely save us more than staying offsite.

    See, last year was our honeymoon and our first trip to disney, we stayed on site, at Coronado, it was amazing.

    Problem is, we enjoyed staying on site SO much, the convenience, the combination of resort and still disney, that we will probably continue to pay the premium in order to stay on site.

    Yeah, I've stayed on site a few times now, and I just can't imagine going any other way. We have stayed off site, but now that I've stayed on, I'll wait a longer amount of time to go if I have to just to be able to stay on site. The convenience, to me, makes it worth it. I just may have to a better job saving or not go as often! :(

    I'm trying to decide whether to make meal reservations, even though we haven't booked a trip (and won't, unless a discount comes out). Thinking about may 1-7, but I haven't settled in case we need to be flexible to take advantage of a pin.

    Make your ADRs, we didn, you might be surprised that some places are already booking, especially things like Be Our Guest, which are new ....

    No penalty to cancel your ADRs afterall ...
