You raise a good point Thetorit! I think I would pay the extra $ for a themed. Of course my older daughter wants Indiana Jones theme...LOL. I just want mine to be pink, I am all about pink.

I think that would depend on the cost and the options. I would definitely consider it for my kids if it wasn't totally outrageous!

That would be great - thanks for the response! I think I'm just really sensitive - I don't even like having jewelry on - I only wear my wedding band when I'm going out. It comes off as soon as I get in the house!

I'm really anxious to hear/read more about the changes coming with the magic bands - I would love for this to be a positive change

Depends on what the themes are and the cost. If it's $5 to upgrade to Cinderella then sure, I'll do that for my kids. I might get a Star Wars one for myself. I hope that with the themeing they have individual characters and not just groups of them. If I could get Rapunzel for DD1 and Belle for DD2 that would be cool but I wouldn't just get two generic "princess" bands.

I also wouldn't get a princess band. My daughter thinks she IS Cinderella. (Her name is Bella, and she calls herself CinderBella!) So I'd pay for that particular princess, but I don't need a montage.

I do hope they are out (and WORKING) in August. I'm with the others...it depends on the $$. I think my cut-off is around $20. If they're much more than that, I think I would let the kids get one if they payed for all/part and DH and I would stick to the plain colors.

Just wanted to share my experience with the discount. We were originally booked with a split stay - 8/13-8/15 at AoA and 8/15-8/20 at the Poly. When the Visa discount was announced last week, I called (twice) to change our first two nights to the Poly (and explained to the CMs about our split stay and that this would give us a full week at one resort). They said there was no availability for a club level room with the discount for those two nights. So, when the discount became available online this morning, I tried for myself. There was no availability for the two nights (8/13-8/15), but when I put in our whole week (8/13-8/20) it DID give me the discount on the first two nights

So, I guess my point is, if you're having any issues getting this discount to apply, keep trying different things. I'm guessing there must be a length of stay requirement, but for some reason the CMs I spoke with didn't know this Best of luck to everyone getting their discounts!

Today is our tipping point day!

At some point during the day today it will be as many days to our next trip as it has been since we went last.

Silly thing I know but something I thought was funny.

I called and upgraded from AoA to a Moderate today for our trip (aug 12-19), but I have since noticed that the discount was only applied to the the Aug 12-14 dates, regular rates for the rest. I read on here a few pages back that the check-in date was what mattered, but apparently this is not the case

I am debating going back again now as this was more than I expected and the CM was talking very quickly and I felt rushed so never had time to figure it out.

For RO discounts it's based on the actual days you are in your room. For FD it's based on your check in date. You could check in on the last day of the promotion and get FD for the entire trip.

Just an FYI - based on historical trends, there should be another room only discount offered for the rest of August and into September, but it probably won't come out until sometime in May. I'm counting on that too for the remainder of our trip

I was lucky enough to get my 8/1 -8/12 trip changed to reflect the discount. I called right at 7 this morning and waited 62 minutes!! The discount was about $250 for us. Every penny counts!!

Our friends who are traveling with us were able to save $800 on their 6 night stay at Boardwalk! When he called today, they fixed the price but the CM also went on to offer him other savings such as dining deals as he explained it. DOes anyone know what they were referring to? He did not ask too many questions because he didn't understand and he was on his way to a business trip....and he never booked a trip to Disney before, so he may have been confused? I think he may call back to see what they were offering at a later time
