I would think that the offer is date specific since the upcharge for peak season priceing of the DP begins on 3/8 same as the room rates changeing ?

I think this is the most confusing offer EVER!

I don't want to go to the trouble of getting another Visa for this offer and end up changing it for FD. I wonder if this is the new look of offers for 2013.

Then I realized that getting a Visa won't help me because I need to book multiple rooms. (the Visa application trick from the Jan. thread). Oh well, guess I have to wait until the 10th. Boo!

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??!
follow up:

held for almost 2 hours before I got someone

Zachary was very helpful. He said that Movies is only a 5% discount and that Music, POP and Sports are all 25%. Interesting since (1st post in this thread) Movies is listed as 25% and Music is not listed in the offer. So switched to Music and went from $949 (no discount) or $901 via my first call and booking Movies to $711 ! for booking Music for the same dates!

Saved almost $200 just by calling back and getting it right.

Hope the above info helps someone and a big thank you to the poster that alerted me to the 'varying' discount system!

Again discount amounts vary significantly not only by resort but also by dates.. And that's always the case.

We all want to understand the promo as static across the date range.. but that's simply not reflective of how they end up working.

That's why Disney uses the "for most nights" wording .. when stating the date ranges.

BUT soooo glad to hear you got something that worked for you!

Yeah.. I'm seeing mixed results visiting the various threads. Some folks are reporting they are getting the discount past the 7th for a couple of days.. but it can be hard to do the math given the rate change on the 8th.

And some others are reporting that they got it for 1 night past the 7th but not two nights..

So.. it really does seem to depend on what resort you have booked, what category of room and how many days past the 7th are in question..

In short -- it does NOT ALWAYS seem to be working like the F/D promo.. but in *some* circumstances it does.

How's THAT for confusing?

Ok - I want to be able I understand this correctly. These rates, right now, are for Disney Visa holders only, correct? But these same rates will be released to the public on 10/10, right? What about AP rates? When will those be out and will they be any better than these GP ones?

Here is what I booked:

3 Adults (includes DS9 - upgraded him to an adult for dining purposes)
March 4th thru the 11th
POR - Standard View Royal Guest Room
8 Day Base Park Tickets
Plus Dining Plan
$2995.15

I was told that the discount is extended for our entire trip. Just to be sure, I had her price out the same time frame (Mon - Mon) but not extending beyond the 7th of March. There was a price difference of about $40.

Also, originally I had DS9 booked as a child and when I called back to have him upgraded to an adult, the package price was exactly the same. The CM checked it twice to be sure it was right.

I am still floored that CR is 35% off and WL is only 25%! That rarely happens! What is up with that?! Anyone know why WL is so low?

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!
30% is for POR, and the measly 5% is for FQ I think

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'm hoping to stop my obsession too - but well, not quite positive about it! Then comes all the dining planing - even if we only get the QSDP I will probably plan almost all of our eating places

But THANK YOU for taking the time to answer my post!!!

I just have a question - I'm not sure that I understood what you said about the regular DP! So please check if I have it right?!
Rack Rate: $650
Park Tickets kids price: $1040
Reg. DP kids price : $360
= $2050
That is only $73,6 more to go from 20 QS to 20 TS?? Is that right? Or do I have to multiply the $286,4 (4 people*5days*$14,32with) $360(4 people*5days*$18) - so that price to get regular DP will be $646,4?
Then the total price for POP will be $2336,4 - but POR R/FQ is $2412,2... Then I might take POR Riverside or FQ instead!!

Oh no, I didn't say that right. I meant the second thing, so:
Rack Rate: $650
Park Tickets kids price: $1040
QSDP kids price: $286,4
to upgrade to regular DP: $360 = 2336

So, yeah--moderate would be a pretty comparable price if you want the regular dining plan.
