My Dreams came true and

Disney managed to suck more money out of me!!! Oh well - I'm getting a better trip out of it! I actually extended our trip and upgraded to the regular dining plan. It only costed me $168 to upgrade for 8 days for 2 adults and 2 kids. I know I could have gotten quick service for free but since I am going in December, I was going to pay out of pocket for a couple of shows anyway. Lovin' my Disney Visa! Oh and they did NOT make me pay in full???? I have until Nov. 2. Maybe because it was a change to an existing reservation?

Oops!

Oops! Since you had the 40% off, same as myself, I should have known that. I am probably older than you and am somewhat senile, so my children tell me. (I forget how many or what their names are at the moment)

If you are driving we will be on the road at the same time too. Watch out for the wild woman in the Toyota Camry.

If someone get a thread on who is going to be there in December maybe we can plan a meet. We will be going slow this trip. I have more fun that way.

I just called and had the Disney Visa Offer applied to my room at Pop for Dec 1-5. I had the QSDP Adults eat and play at kid's prices PIN but this offer saved me $35. Not a lot but at least it's something. I didn't think they'd let me since I had a $500 payment on it from Amex (using rewards) but she said as long as the deposit was made with my Disney Visa (and it was) that I could apply the offer. She assured me it wouldn't be a problem with my Amex payment on it.

Now, I do have a PIN for free DDP at values for the same time but opted not to apply it to that ressie (I did on another later in the month). After our checkout, we'll be on the Magic for 7 nights and then 5 more nights with DDP. I wanted the freedom of no ADRs during that time since I'll be tied down to at least one meal a day for 12 days. Am I crazy for not accepting the DDP?

We will be at ASMusic (Sports did not have 14 nites non preferred) from November 29th-December 13th.

See you there!


Slightly Goofy
Yay! And your fav. plan too. Have you stayed at Music before?

One of these times we will go in Dec. We will be a bit preoccupied this year, as new baby is due to arrive in January! [Yup, hadn't told you yet. ]

Glad for everyone getting a good deal!

I did it at the Yacht Club - it was really fun. They give you guidelines of how far you can go, I think... I forget, it was two years ago. And they also have people patrolling the water, so you have to stick to those guidelines, and if you need help (like my boat stalled and I couldn't pull the cord to start it again on my own), they're glad to offer it.

"Free" stuff

The last time I did the Planet Hollywood thing I got a cheap keyring for my souvenir and you can only use ONE voucher per table.

I am thinking that if you have an AP you could probably use your free pass with the B1G1F offer that you get with your pass. I have never done it and maybe rules have changed though.

If there are, it's probably during the peak season of Thanksgiving, and if it extends far enough, Christmas peak season.

The down economy continues to challenge Disney to fill their hotel rooms, which is resulting in a continuing stream of deals for you!

Walt Disney World has just announced free dining packages for September 27 through December 17. Right now it's only available to Disney Visa cardmembers (use codes EVN or GCA), but it will open for general availability on Sunday morning.NOTE: This offer is not available November 25-28, the Wednesday through Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.

This time, the free dining comes with a twist: while the package stays the same if you book at a moderate, deluxe or villas resort, free dining packages at value resorts will be the quick service dining plan instead of the basic dining plan. You should be able to pay to upgrade your plan, but the "free" value of the deal will be $29.99 per day for adults, $8.99 for children instead of $39.99 per day for adults, $10.99 for children. For a family of four with both children under age 10, that's a difference of $24 per day. For a family of four with both kids age 10 and up, it's a difference of $40 per day. Please be aware of that before you choose your resort!

You can book this offer through September 26, the last day of the Walt Disney Company's 2008-2009 fiscal year. Book now, get a great deal, and help Disney improve its numbers at the same time!


Anyone else heard anything about this?

Nope, but I'm going to go talk to a few people in my house with credit cards right now. Be back in a bit.
