You would have to make separate reservations because promotions are based on arrival dates. If you check-in during the offer dates, you can extend the offer to the end of your vacation, even if your vacation extends past the offer dates. However, you can't check-in before the promotion begins and receive the special offer for the length of your vacation, even if part of your vacation falls within the offer dates. Hopefully, that makes sense!

You would need a separate reservation with at least a one day ticket.

It made sense! Thanks!

I wonder how that would work for military. I was able to get the dining plan without park tickets (because we get the military salute tickets) so I wonder if I could get free dining without park tickets?
If not I guess we'd just HAVE to buy a days worth of tickets and stay an extra day

Mousesavers has posted the following: NEW for Disney’s Visa cardholders: Walt Disney World vacation package offer - save up to 30% on your room, plus get discounted 4-day through 10-day tickets, for travel 6/13/13 – 8/14/13. Can also be booked as room only discount without the ticket savings.
I wonder what the ticket savings are? Has anyone booked yet?

I just called and used the PIN to adjust my existing reservation. It took awhile for the rep to find the right code since it was am existing reservation. Turned out she had to switch it to a different room category, to get the discount to work. Saved us over $680 @ the YC.

Is your pin the same as the visa discount? What dates does it cover?

The PIN was a little different from the one on the email. That PiN is for the general public. She had to do a little investigation to find the visa rewards one. The dates covered are 6/14-8/14 I think.

If you go to the Disney Rewards card website, it will give you the code for cardholders to use. You have until April 2nd before it goes out to the general public.

Question of the Day

Are you hoping for Free Dinning? If it's available will you partake? If so, will you upgrade?

Hoping for, sure the likelyhood of it being available and being applicable to my resort, very low. So that being said I got the DDP anyway and paid for it

Yes, yes, and no. I would love free dining, and if it is offered we're adding 4 people to our trip!!

When we went in December we had to pick one or the other. For what it's worth, I found the cost to be pretty much the same for the two, although we saved a little money doing the military+dine and the 4-day military PH passes. The best part about using the military offer is I wasn't tied to certain dates. I would have had to change our reservation or have a separate package with the military rate if we'd done free dining. With the military rate I got the same savings and the dates I really wanted to travel. Plus, with free dining I would have had to purchase tickets as part of the package, and the military tickets are so much better. I think that is why it saved me so much to go with the military discount. Just my two cents, but if free dining does come out I would price out both options and see which one works best for your family.

Free dining is great for business so I am hoping it, however for our family (a military family) we find that the military rate gives us the same, if not better savings so we will not personally partake.
