Hopefully so!
The way you explain it sounds like how my college handled insurance. We were told during orientation and in our acceptence packets that the school provides a high deductible insurance program that would give us free access to our schools health care center. I remember it was an auto enroll system and you had to prove you have coverage by a certain date or they just tacked the extra onto your tuition. I bet it is the same way seeing as your daughter called and asked if she needed it or not and took the steps to cancel.

Thanks for the info. I think everything was so fast and furious after getting checked in, moving into an apartment for the first time and then starting her job. Just slipped through the cracks.

We will follow up. If nothing else, she is covered under THREE plans now!! Just didn't want her to pay for something she doesn't need. And they mailed everything to our home so I have the insurance card and flexible spending debit card.

Lesson learned. I was under the impression you had to "opt in" to things like health insurance and flexible spending. At least at every company I have worked at. I was always afraid I was going to miss the deadline and not be covered!

She is looking into her options.

I do know that you can't use Disney's on site health center unless you have coverage under Disney. If she doesn't have a car I would look into it just because the health center is a bus ride to Epcot as compaired to begging for a ride to a doctor's office or paying for a cab.

Even with her incredible discount, it is still twice as expensive as Shades of Green!

But regardless, couldn't be more excited!
I'm confused. A couple of pages back someone just posted that room discounts have been released for Aug thru mid-Oct. How did your daughter book a discounted room for Christmas week?

I think there is a very limited number of "standard" cm discounts out there for December. By "standard" I mean 40% F&F or 50% cm-in-room. It seems the only thing readily available in December right now is AKL. What is not out there yet is the special holiday discounts. In know I have a 40% AKL rez for December but hoping for more later.

My son was able to pull up moderate & deluxe resorts at 40 & 50 % off today for the time period over Xmas. Nothing at the values.

Looks like free dining is going to beat the discount for us though--unless he can get 60% off at some point.

Our CM discount was 50% at Wilderness Lodge for December 20-27, courtyard view were the only ones available to CMs. Still way pricier than Shades of Green but we will take it as we have never had the opportunity to stay in a Disney hotel!
