? dumb question

We have a reservation at FW in January, and I had hoped that we could use a passholder discount but none available according to CM. Is there ever a passholder discount for a camp site?

1) Campsite Discounts
. . . AAA
. . . AP
. . . CM
2) However, each are limited, so you need to call early.

Good to know. I tried for AAA, but none available. I made reservation five months in advance. Will do better next year. This is our first camping trip to WDW. If there are no discounts available when you make reservation, do they ever come up later?

1) Sometimes they come up later.
2) If, a person with a discount cancels their ressie.
3) But, WDW is not required to offer that cancellation for a discount.

discount

I have had my reservation since August at the fort and was told no discounts, I am a Florida resident. AAA memeber and passholder... but I was told to keep trying and I did and I got a discount!!! we arrive on Saturday, so my advise is to just keep trying.

Great. Was it for full hookup and was it AAA? We are both AAA and Passholders and still can't get the discount. We arrive on Saturday.

So you just need to keep calling? We made our reservations for this June 2013 last July 2012 but we weren't pass holders at the time but we are now.
