This is confusing! I'm going Feb 2-9 with 4 adults and 2 children aged 9 and 7. I was planning on getting two rooms at POR. Will I be able to get the discount for two rooms? Or would the other promotion with dining discount work better?

I would just talk to the CM when you call. The RO discount for POR is 30%, I think. I've heard as low as 5% though. I think it depends on the amount of rooms they have allocated for the promotion during your trip dates. In all, we saved a greater percentage of money with the package deal than with room only - but that was for a family of 5, park hopper, 8 nights - so your situation will be different. I'm no math major, but I would think that a RO discount might be better for you since you are getting two rooms.

Good luck!

Still not sure if we can get time off that early in the year - plus, have to talk DH into yet ANOTHER early anniversary trip to WDW ;-}

Would love to stay at Poly this time w/room-only discount & will be pricing out other options between now and next Wednesday!

Just wanted to add in here that the room discount IS available president's week (At least it is for Feb 18-21). So happy to find that! Now I need to decide if I want to keep LM or save $100 and go to POP preferred...

so annoyed - with myself and with the person I just spoke to

Booked AS Movies for 1/7 - 1/16 so 9 nights with the Disney Visa room only discount - she gave me a total of $901.74 ....now looking at it I don't think she applied the Visa discount (so annoyed with myself for not catching it!)

I'm on hold - can anyone run the numbers and tell me if I'm crazy? I went online and without the discount it's $949 so I"m not sure where $901 came from if it's a 25% discount (as on the 1st page of this thread)

help??!

It might not be a 25% discount for the room you are looking at. Just tell the CM that you want to price out a few other value resorts. Ask her specifically what % discount you are getting. HTH!!

Pop Century / Standard Pool View/Wheelchair access, roll-in shower/1 king bed, 1 double bed
Rack Rate: $650
Park Tickets kids price: $1040
QSDP kids price: $286,4
= $1976,40

Am I missing something here?

Anyone know if you can just pay $17,16/day for the regular dining plan while staying at a value resort?

Haha... Can't wait until 10/10!!!
I know, maybe after 10/10 I can stop obsessing about our trip...well, probably not!

I think you got it right--except according to http://www.disneyrewards.com/offers/...yplaydineoct12 you can't get the "kids of all ages" discount at AofA.

I believe that in order to get the regular DP at a value resort you will have to pay the normal upgrade price (about $18 per adult per day), so for 4 adults and 5 nights you'll essentially pay $360 for 20 fewer quick service meals (1 per person, per day) but 20 more table service meals (1 per person, per day). If you won't miss those quick service meals then the $360 price for 5 separate table service meals for 4 adults is a good deal.

i had the same issue with the AKV I posted about a few posts back....... she could not tell me exactly what the discount was.....she just said that was the least expensive option that came up. It was definitely NOT 35% off the room portion which is what the RO offer says..... when I mentioned that she went into a long explanation about how it's a "tiered system" and can be anywhere from 5% off up to whatever depending on resort, dates, etc. I said that's not what the offer says -- it doesn't say "UP TO 35%", it says "35% off". She had no answer for me.

ETA: upon further recalculating, it may actually be 35% off. I was taking 35% off the price WITH tax and I'm sure the discount is off of the pre-tax total. So it does come out to about 35% off (can't say for sure b/c I can't get room only pricing on website for savanna view.) But she couldn't tell me what the exact discount was

I am also doing a stay at WL, for 8 nights, and using that formula, the difference between this offer and 25% off RO is $2.78. Dying for Oct. 10 to roll around so I can find out for sure!

AoA can get the offer -- only LM rooms are excluded.

Excellent, I missed the note on the bottom of the discount box. I'm glad it's just the LM rooms.

If your parents will use the standard dining plan (1 snack, 1 quick service meal, & 1 table service meal for each night of the reservation), then the new deal (available for you to book next week on 10/10) is a much better deal than the AAA discount. Rather than spending $600 on a gift card for dining you can book the standard dining plan for them with Disney for less than $140. You will lose the AAA discount, but based on the Disney website, your room & park ticket price will go up about $120, so you will "save" around $400 from your current plan. (I'm also factoring in $36 total savings on the park ticket price).

If your parents won't like the standard dining plan--either b/c they won't like the table service meal or the quick service meal then you might be better off switching resorts and getting the room-only discount. The 30% discount on a "preferred room" (closer to main building and bus spots) at POR, CBR & CSR may end up being less than POFQ. If you decide the meal plan deal isn't for you then you may want to ask the folks at AAA to play with the resort location and the room only discount and see what you get. Or call Disney direct after the deal is released next week--I generally find them very helpful.

I had no idea there were different levels of discount - I thought if it said 25% for Movies it would be 25% or not available. Not pleased - still on hold - still feeling stupid for not catching it while I was on the phone with the original person.

thanks for the insight - I'm going to ask about POP and Sports!

Has anyone successfully booked a vacation with this discount (stay play dine) that started on March 7th or prior, but extending into the post March 7th period?

I'm trying to figure out if this works like the old FD plan.
