Earning My Ears
- Jan 7, 2008
Thanks, this is great!!!
I am wondering the same thing. I think I am in their system due to getting a code postcard last fall.If I am not an AP holder nor a Florida resident, but Disney does have my name (via Disney website and vacation DVD), would it be possible to have a code associated with my name if I called and asked? Or, are codes only given with names of AP holders? If I call and say, "My name is XXX. Could you check if there's a code with my name?" Would the CM say, "Ummmm... you are not even in our system." I don't want to call and sound like an idiot, but don't want to miss out if there's a code for me.
Only downside I can see is passholder room only made online has a 45 day cancellation policy. Made on the phone its a 5 day. Also by phone they can help you with alternative dates if your first dates arent availableI am currently waiting for my first AP to be mailed to me...I ordered it this last week and I'm anxiously awaiting it's arrival in the mail, so I can get into the 'passholder's' section of Disney's website and see what discounts are available.
Am I understanding all this correctly...are you saying it's NOT a good idea to make my reservations through the website?
As long as you get tickets with the room you can get the DDP also. Call back and talk to a differant CMA 15, 20, 25 ,30 or 40% off room-only code .. sometimes can be used with a package.. But when you do so, you are still only getting (x)% off the room portion of your package costs. The Tickets, dining plan and any other optional add-ons are at the normal rate unless your offer explicitly says otherwise.
The CM I had told me you could NOT get a DDP with a room only code. Is this correct? I didn't want the DDP at a discount - just the room. He said the DDP was also viewed as a discount item so you can't have two discounts.
