Many people seem to send faxes that early, and to be honest what have you got to lose by trying?

So I'm a little bummed. We are booked Aug 22- Aug 31. The current discount is only 5% off POFQ. Does anyone know if they offer a AAA discount at POFQ? We really want to stay here but would like a little better than 5% off. We we were hoping for free dining buts that's not happening this August.

I thought they don't look at faxes for room accommodations anymore? Can you confirm?

I have a AAA discount for my trip to POFQ in October. The discount was 15% off the rack rate.

I was at POR in Dec and thanks to this thread I sent a fax the week of our arrival. I asked for a corner room on first floor and an AB room not too far from Main Building and not only were these requests met the room was ready when we checked in on Dec 17! I was shocked!
Just remember everyone there is no guarantee your requests will be met or that your room is ready at check in, our rooms are normally not and we just grab a bite to eat and head to the parks!

of discount will vary by season and resort. We usually get 10% in June at POFQ. Not a great deal but that alone pays for our membership.

It is a small resort so I would check quickly.

I got a quote for Sept/Oct and it was 10% through AAA. You should call.

Roughly how much $ for a bottle of wine in the resort shop? I'm trying to work out if it will be worth having a grocery delivery or not!!

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Call AAA or call WDW to ask about the discount?
