My TA was able to get the promo applied to our POFQ reservations. Saved us $170.28, which is not much but when you're at WDW, every little bit helps!

I also had a great CM and was happy to save $478 on my 6 night stay at POR. Wanted to let everyone know standard rooms are gone for the week of June 1-7th

Yes, we had POFQ and a discount- just be aware that the discount is much less than at the other moderates. I don't know why. But switching to POR doubled our savings. Literally. The CM I talked to said she didn't know why either, but definitely the case for the spring discount.
We love POFQ, but with 3 rooms/packages, the overall savings was too much for us to not switch

...after about 1 hour and 15 minutes on hold (speaker phine while I made lunch, ate lunch, and cleaned up after lunch)...

We were booked with preferred rooms at POR AAA at $1574 for April 15-22. We took the river view room only deal for $1342. Because we have one room in our party with 5 people we get building 14, 27 (both preferred) or 38 because they are the only AB buildings with a river view. We can live with 38 because it is near the main pool and cuts right to the main building.

Hope you can get a preferred later, but we didn't want to wait and hope some more.

Talked with my TA who got us our discount. We saved $266 off the room. Which is more than what Danny25s prices were. Which is just an added bonus. Any savings is good for me. Had a few issues since I wanted to buy the new 4 day discover disney fl resident passes. They aren't out yet so we were going to just cancel and re book as a room only. Only problem is I used my tax refund card that I got last yr for my return. So we just went ahead and changed my tix to 1 day and when I check in I will have them upgraded to the 4 day ones.

Thanks again Danny25 for the heads up on this offer. I went on line this morning, booked BC garden view from 4/13 - 4/19 and saved $977! Yahoo!

Circling back - when Danny25 posted originally I calculated my potential savings at $600 based on room + tickets using his charts.

Had already booked room-only; called this afternoon (407-939-7675) with a 3 minute wait and changed that to room plus tickets, same resort. Total savings over rack rate $683.

2 adults, 12 nights at CBR, 10 day tickets with Hoppers and Water Parks options.
