Right now, the schedule is very vague. "Early 2012" to open the new Dumbo, the re-themed Barnstormer, and the new Fantasyland train station. "Late 2012" to open the new Little Mermaid ride, the Be Our Guest restaurant, and the Beauty and the Beast village and meet and greet.

I'm afraid my dates are pretty firm at this point, but I really hope we don't end up going during any openings!

If this is the end of discounts we will be renting points from now on! Can you believe that? $184.04 cheaper to stay at AKV over ASMO????
So... how do you go about retning points to stay at AKV?

I'm pretty much stuck for this trip since we've invited my cousin to come along and I don't want to put anyone on the couch, but if we do go back I think renting points is the way to ensure we save some money without worrying about discounts.

www.dvcrequest.com is the best website I've seen, although someone else might have another reccomendation.

Is there any info on this so I can plan for our trip - 3rd wk of sept 2012 thanks

That doesn't sound right. How many people are going? Do you absolutely *need* to have the Deluxe dining? You could probably save yourself quite a bit by going down the the regular Dining plan. And if you're only there 10 days...I am assuming day 1 and day 10 are your arrival and departing days...maybe only 8 or 9 day park tickets? Just trying to help.

I do hope that you guys either get PIN codes mailed to you or that Disney comes up with Free Dining for everyone.

It is an interesting theory that they might not have free dining in fall because of the FLE.

I am renting points from DH's coworker that is a DVC member. She checked availability on where we wanted to stay, and charged us $8.00 per point. We payed her directly for the room portion and added the dining plan on with our credit card. Don't know if this helps anyone? Renting points is not as scary as it seems...

I agree--are you SURE you want Deluxe dining? Have you done it before? In order to be worth while financially, you basically have to be on vacation with the sole goal of eating. You have to have ADRs pretty much 3x a day which means your entire day, every day is running from one reservation to the next. The regular DDP is ONE reservation meal a day. This means for the rest of the day you can just relax. Deluxe is a good thing if you are going on a vacation focused on the food (sorta like going on a cruise, i guess) but if you have big plans to do a lot in the parks, I think Deluxe would just be a stress.

But that's just my opinion. Everyone has different views/experiences. If you've done it before and know you like it, go for it. But if you've never done it before, I really think regular DDP is MORE than enough food.

I think she needs 2 rooms also. But yeah I agree with the deluxe dining. If I needed to save some money that would be the first to go. We booked bounceback with FD for next year but stuck with the QSDP again. We go for 14 nights and just don't want to be tied down to alot of adrs. We still come out ahead paying op for 4 TS meals. hope everyone gets what they are looking for.

We are planning a trip in June 2012 from 6/8-6/16. We are planning to visit Universal, Legoland & a few days at WDW. Our trips are usually WDW only with an on-site resort (value or moderate w/discount). I have a list of potential hotels in DTD/LBV. We want to stay in our comfort zone. Plus if we stay at one of the DTD hotels I will feel like I am still in Disney. We wanted to use a WDW resort as home base because we enjoy them so much even if it is ASMO but I won't commit unless I receive a discount for a Disney resort. I agree when I see the room prices for 2012 I am I won't make any reservations until Jan/Feb because I know then all hotels will be starting to promote summer vacations.
