I called twice today and was only on hold for 5 minutes around 10:00 then 15 minutes when I called around 1:15. Got POR river view booked for May I am getting my tickets through UT, they have provided me with good customer service for many years and I would rather pay a little more and support them.

I was going to pay 350 for one night at AoA and then purchase tickets from undercover tourist for 1383, by going thru Disney I got the room and tix for 1568 so I saved. I didn't have any expectation though because I didn't know I could add discounted tix. I saved $165
I am not really wanting to call right now. I am going to book the room online and then I will work out the tickets later. I am thinking that perhaps the difference could be from taxes. I can get my tickets through work for close to that or I can also check out undercover tourist.

Thanks for the help!

Finally....

After only 59 minutes of being on hold I finally got through to add my discount to my current reservation and saved $740.08 off of my reservation ! I am soooo excited and my trip finally feels official now! I was waiting for the discount to come out to book my flight reservations just in case I would need to change my dates around.

Original booking:
May 1 - May 10
Port Orleans Riverside - Royal Guest room -- Riverview
8 day park hoppers for 2 adults and 1 child
$3706.11

After discount added:
dates, resort, room type, and category remained the same
$2966.03

Booked

May 12 to May 25 at Pop on-line. However, I am hoping to get more off through the AP discount, whenever that comes out.

The good thing about the cabins is if you want you can also use the comfort stations too and than you would have an extra bathroom.

I would love to do the cabins but we take our family trip at Christmas and that is out of our budget so we do the campsites instead.

Whee! Had previously booked a room-only for CBR 5/8 - 5/20. Called in this afternoon, wait time less than 3 minutes. Worked with a great CM who priced everything out for me. Room only with new discount dropped from prior price of $2,650.48 to $1,987.88. Then I added tickets - 2 adults, 10 days, Hoppers plus Water Parks; total package cost $2,768.28.

Total savings over rack rate $683.

I decided I didn't want to deal with CMs so I enlisted the help of our AAA TA. We saved $522.83! Only downside we had to switch from preferred room at POR to garden view. But for $522 I'll gladly make that switch!

Decided to switch from POFQ to POR since POFQ only had 5% off with the general public offer and POR had 25% off. Thus, we went from expecting to spend $1776 for a standard POFQ room to $1332 for a standard POR room. YAY for great money savings! So excited!
