    :rotfl2: :rotfl2: If it helps any, we're paying for my sister and BIL and nephew for the 11-day, and since non of us is staying in their room, we don't get the discount for that stateroom.

    You are so funny! :rotfl2:

    Cindi - not sure if you can do this since you already booked but you only need one FL resident per cabin to get the discount for the entire cabin. We did this with my sister and then just went to guest services to have them change the keys. We did not have any problems. Hope you can still change.

    Just called and had the Florida Resident Rate added to our August 12th Western Cruise, your little post saved me $518.00.
    I just wanted to thank you, when I first called she said they didn't have any discounted rates for my dates but she checked again after I told her my crusie date had been posted on the DIS and AllEarsnet (Deb's website) she said her system just hadn't been updated yet. I thought I would add this information for anyone calling to check.

    Did those of you who got the discount book directly through DCL or your own travel agent? Just curious because we are booked through DCL and wanted to know if they ever offer the discounts?

    Yes, I was also worried because from everything I had read it said to call your TA to have the discount added. I just called DCL direct and spoke with a Cast Member

    Us Californian's should get the Florida discount by default. After all, Mickey lived here first!!! :rotfl2:

    Maybe I should talk hubby into moving to Florida, just so we can get a discount on our cruise! $3,000!!! Wow!

    When I switched over for the upgrades and frr over a year ago, I had to have a ta do it. DCL refused to discuss it with me. Maybe things have changed.

    That's great news for Floridians, but a bummer for us Ohioans! On one of our cruises, our tablemates paid $475 ea., and we paid $1600 ea. We weren't too thrilled w/ that!!

    Jjupiter, we're actually taking up three staterooms, but there are only two Florida resident adults -- the kids don't count. :guilty: I'd LOVE to get another $500 off since we're paying, but we'll be very thankful for anything we can get. :goodvibes

    Arlenesp, it isn't supposed to matter who you book with, a TA or Disney directly, you should still get the discount, even if you've paid in full. Disney of course won't call you and tell you that there's a discount -- you have to find out on your own and call them. I'm still going to ask when we get to the port if the FL res discount got discounted even further. It can't hurt.

    I personally like going through a TA for that reason, along with the fact that someone gets a paycheck out of it with no extra money coming from me. They're just trying to support themselves, and they do get notifications from Disney, whereas if we book ourselves, they don't notify us. I found out on our Cruise Meets board first, and then called my TA. She said Disney was only sending them notifications once a month now instead of once a week, but she got right on the phone and got us our discounts.

    I've heard of Georgia and SC discounts sometimes, but have never had reason to check on them. Maybe I should as my sister lives in SC and that is the one room we couldn't get a discount on! :teeth:

    I booked that first trip thru a ta nd when I saw the frr posted on the boards here I first tried to call my ta who wan't available.
    DCL wouldn't deal with me at all!!!!!I had to get a ta to get on the phone with us 3 way from that agency to do it.She didn't have any knowledge of what we were doing and as a result that deal took over 1 1/2 hours.What an ordeal!
    The next cruises we went with Dana and it took her all of 2 -3 min to accomplish the discount and upgrade.
    Learned my lesson.
    Still waiting to see what comes out in Aug or Sept.If the prices are right we will do 3 or 4 day.I need my fix.

    Hopefully there will be good rates for AUG/SEP. I was surprised to see the FRR came out for summer already. That is awesome. I guess they aren't filling up as quickly as usual :rolleyes: We are cruising on the 7 day western (tomorrow :banana: :Pinkbounc :bounce: ) and we also rec'd $3000 back for FRR. We paid in full in Feb and got the surprise in March :goodvibes For those wondering, that is for 7 people in a Cat 6 and cat 11 cabin.

    First time cruiser here..

    We want to book a cruiser for 4/07 and bring my wifes grandmother with us.
    She is a FL res.

    How do we do this?
    Just book now with all the info and when it gets close, call and have the rate adjusted?

    Do I have to pay all up front or in payments and should I go directly throught Disney or to a TA?
    The price is the same either way.
    I walked into my local TA and the price quoted was identical to that on the disney cruise site.

    I believe the ressie needs to be in the Fl resident name to get the discount.
