AAA discounts usually do not apply to the Easter and Christmas holiday periods.

What about the black out dates in October ? We are going to arrive on Oct. 14th which is blacked out for the free dining. So I just wondered if it is blacked out for all discounts.

I went last October during one of the black out periods and still was able to obtain an AAA discount on a room at POFQ. The discount was about 15% off the rack rates. There's only a limited number of AAA discounts offered at each resort and sometimes they sell out quickly. It never hurts to call Disney and ask if a discount is available for your dates.

I just booked Coronado for 6 nights (including Marathon weekend) for $1453.32 - 4 adults - preferred room. From what I can tell, I believe the e-mailed confirmation includes sales tax (????) in which case it was a big savings over the $1583 regular rate plus tax. (Not sure I calculated everything right but it is at least definitely less!)

Thank you, I currently do not have AAA but, I have had it in the past. I'm thinking of maybe getting it again.

I would call Disney and find out if they still have AAA discounts for your resort and dates before joining. I usually make my reservations at least 10 months out to be sure I can obtain the discount.

This last April we got a AAA discount during the Easter break, which was blacked out by disney. Even though the discount was not much, we were pleased that the resorts we stayed at were so empty given the black-out that we were upgraded at both resorts!

I just booked April 6-13, 2013. It is around Easter but it is not the week directly before or directly after Easter. We only got about an 8% discount with AAA room only.

I agree with this. You can go ahead and book the room with the AAA discount with out the membership they won't ask for the number when you book just when you check in.

I guess it depends on the CM. I have never been asked for my number when reserving through WDW reservations.

That has not been my experience with Disney CRO. I've booked AAA discounts with Disney for the last three years (October) and they've always asked for my membership # and expiration date. However they've never asked to see the membership card at check-in.

You hit the nail on the head! It depends on the CM.

I have had it happen both ways in the past. Most recently, which was last Saturday (July 14), I was NOT asked for my #. I had it ready anyway... just in case.
