I got a DC discount at WL for 1/15 til 1/20.(TWO MORE WEEKS!!!!!OMG!!!!). However, I called on 10/14 (the first day of the new DC), at 7:00 am, and already had an existing reservation at full price. We only saved about $250.00 off the whole package price, but every little bit helps. All I can say is keep trying, they could always have a cancellation. Or try AAA or Dreams Unlimited. Sometimes they can do better!! Good luck!!! 313 hours to go!!!
We love the WL and have stayed there the last 2 Novembers (value season) and have been unable to get the DC discount after multiple calls. They always seem to have discounts for the other deluxe hotels, but they are few and far between at the Lodge!
I just need to add, I think there are too few DC discounts available. They keep reducing value season and the number of discounts to the point where you need to call at least 9 months in advance to get a discount at many of the hotels in the off season. The uninitiated who think the DC guarantees a discount must get very frustrated.
