We have a trip booked for the first week of February 2020 and are hoping for some kind of discount before then because the cost is crazy. Will there be a discount for that time of year?

In the past they have done a promotion over winter called Play, Stay, Dine. I'm hoping they have this promotion again because we have our trip booked that same time!

    For those that will find this of interest:

    Here's a list of historical release dates for Stay Play Dine and room only discounts typically covering Jan/Feb dates:

    2019 Travel - released 9/26/18 VISA, released 9/26/18 PUBLIC *(no early Visa release although there were add’l discounts for Visa cardholders)
    2018 Travel - released 10/3/17 VISA, released 10/3/17 PUBLIC *(no early Visa release although there were add'l discounts for Visa cardholders)
    2017 Travel - released 9/28/16 VISA, released 9/30/16 PUBLIC
    2016 Travel - released 9/24/15 VISA, released 9/28/15 PUBLIC
    2015 Travel - released 10/6/14 VISA, released 10/9/14 PUBLIC
    2014 Travel - released 10/3/13 VISA, released 10/7/13 PUBLIC
    2013 Travel - released 10/4/12 VISA, released 10/10/12 PUBLIC

    And just to add info here for those that stumble across this post, 2011 & 2012 were the last 2 years where Free Dining was offered during Jan/Feb/Mar. For 2013 and onward it's been Stay, Play & Dine. There's been rumors EVERY year since then that free dining is coming, and then it ends up being StayPlayDine so if you hear that rumor again, take it with a grain of salt.

    So if I go by this, the SPD discount would save me $1244. We have 5 adults, 3 kids, and 2 rooms at the Poly. But then there was a 10% room only discount as well? But you can only choose one or the other? And this is just assuming they have the same discounts as last year.

    Correct that you can only choose one or the other. And of course “same discounts” is a big assumption - but if you did the math right it at least gives you something to think about! :D

    Thank you!
    You’re welcome!

    Fingers crossed there is something. I saw on Mousesavers there is usually a pretty large disney visa room discount. That would be a pretty good savings as well.

    We are planning to go February 2-6, but in checking room availability there are no Value Resorts available? I checked crowd calendar and those days are 4 out of 10, and I don’t see any special events those dates.

    Am I too early for February or anyone have any idea what might be going on??

    We booked our Feb 1-8th package back in June...I hope it's not all booked!! Still expecting larger than normal crowds with Galaxy's Edge, but I wouldn't think they would be completely booked!

    We booked back in June as well for that week. I wouldn’t think everything would be booked already.

    I was playing around with dates and it appears that the zero availability of Value Resorts (other than the suites at AofA) begins on Thursday February 6 through that weekend. It must be big groups, we often go around that time of year and have experienced lots of teen groups and groups of girls celebrating “quincinero”.

    Think I just talked myself into booking “moderate” this trip!

    I agree. I have been checking costs for February and think the prices are high. I am hoping for a good Disney Visa room discount. Fingers crossed!

    We booked a value for the end of Feb/beg of March. Hoping a good Visa discount comes out so we can upgrade our resort.

    So for those following along - it's worth pointing out that we are potentially less than 1 month out from discounts being released.
    • Over the past 4 years, the earliest release was 9/24 in 2015 (Visa release) and 9/26 just last year in 2018 (Public release).
    • The latest release over the last 4 years was 2 years ago on 10/3/17.
    Unfortunately, I'm not sure we have any good "rumor" sources any more on the DIS for when discounts will come out. As we get deeper into Sept, the best way to figure this out is to have people check the website and call each morning. For all our sanity, I hope it happens sooner rather than later!
