Got the 2010 'year long' PINcode after following a DIS-tip

Woohoo, this is the DIS at it's best! A couple of weeks ago I was reading the DIS, as I do sometimes. Read a topic where another DIS'er explained how they reckoned they got a PIN-code. They were pricing out different trips on the Disney website, saving them under their account and leaving it at that. Lo and behold; a PIN-code came.

So, I reckoned let's give it a shot, it can't hurt anyway. So I played around on the website a bit. Got myself a couple of dates and prices and saved them. That was like a week or 3 ago, I guess. Did that for only one account as somehow the website would keep throwing me out when I tried to log on using any of my other accounts.

Today; whoops yet another email from Disney. At first reckoned it was one of those regular ones again. But nop; it was the PINcode that can be used for almost all of 2010.

Who knows!? I know this trick didn't work for everybody that read the topic I read it on, but it DID work for me. Might be worth giving it a shot. It doesn't hurt, chances are nothing will happen, but might just be some of us help pixiedust coming to their homes.

got the same

I did the same thing - except instead of saving offers, I just created an itinerary and then selected some possible resorts. About 2 weeks later I got a 20%/30%/40% pin based on the type of resort - only holidays seemed blacked out.

It worked! We got a Pin we can use!

Here is what I did. On three seperate occassions i logged onto Disney's website and researched vacation packages for July 13 - 20th, 21st and 22nd looking at Moderate and Delux resorts. After the first attempt I got a nice email from Disney refering to my vacation dates and offering me the 40% discount code for dates in November and December 2009. So I thought I could out smart the computer system at Disney and logged on to the website again and deleted those saved offers and saved new similiar offers for the same time periods. Well low and behold I got the same email refering to my july time period and offering me the Nov/Dec pin code

Before I got really sneaky and had my wife register separately at Disney.com i thought I would try a third time for kicks and giggles and I again for the third time logged onto disney.com, deleted two of may three saved offers and added two additional saved offers.

third times a charm the following offer attached to an email refering to our july saved offers

Special Resort Offer
Enjoy better rates if you've got flexible dates!

Save 20%* at Disney Value Resorts,
30%* at Disney Moderate Resorts
or 40%* at Disney Deluxe Resorts

For stays most nights 1/3–1/6/10,
1/10–1/14/10, 1/18–2/11/10,
2/15–3/27/10, 4/11–7/1/10, 7/5–10/7/10, 10/11–11/23/10 and 11/28–12/16/10.

My offer was a postcard in the mail and the offer was 30%/35%/40%. My saved vacations were for values and mods and maybe they were trying to seal the deal for a mod by giving me the 35%?

I also used the online chat with a rep service they offer and asked about the different mods. I may have mentioned at that time that we usually stay off-site...I can't remember. I also logged on a few different times and saved different dates/resorts and played around with the saved vacations I already had.

Other things which may have helped are: I had registered online for my daughter's birthday (I signed her up for the birthday promotion online) this year for October. I responded to Disney's survey e-mail that was waiting for me when I got back home in Oct. and said very posetive things. Also, I used the same time of year in my saved vacations that we went this year.

Hope this helps. Good luck to those trying for pins and congrats to all who already got them!

I just received this one earlier today...call to get the rates, and they tell me that the pin I gave them is good for 2009 only! The CM is so nice and is trying to see what is going on! I am on hold as we speak. I've double and triple-checked the pin code and dates...

Must be a glitch in their system!

If I get the same pin codes as stated above and if the free meal plan comes along for my vacation dates can it be applied to my vacation? TIA

A PIN-code is a discount code. Unlike public discounts a PIN-discount is tied to an individual itself. So no transferring possible, allthough that person can make reservations for others in their party travelling at the same time, for up to 3 rooms.

No. You'll have to pick one or the other. You can book with a PIN-code when you get one, but you can not stack discounts. So it's either the PIN or the free dining.


Fingers crossed for those still waiting!
