hahaha can't wait either, but if the schedule is accurate I am going to have to change my resort. There is no discount at the French Quarter. The rates are actually above rack rate, if you add the discounted tickets, its about break even

Really wanted the french quarter too ...

I'm in for the party! We booked back in October because we are going with or without a discount, but will be thrilled to get anything off our price! May 25-June 1 are our package dates, but my kids and I are tacking on an extra day at the front and end (well that part is a surprise for them )

Not sure, first choice is French Quarter,

Second Choice .... ??? Maybe PO Riverside, just not alligator Bayou ...

Maybe back to Coronado (we were there last time, our first time and it was amazing, but didn't know if it would feel weird going back)

Maybe Carribean Beach ? We generally like the moderates, the Lux are too expensive and the Values I think are a little dated in some cases, and too full of kiddies in others, its just my wife and I.

Well FQ would of been our first choice too but POR is our second. Also considering CBR or maybe even AKL or OKW but need to do the math first. Most likely we'll be at POR.

FQ was our first choice last time, but (shocking) we couldn't get the promo deal there. So, we picked CBR and loved it. Also, the room only discounts haven't been high there - they're so popular, they don't need to discount their rooms. 'sigh'

This time, I presumed we would get a better deal elsewhere, so we're booked at CSR and are hoping for a better discount at AKL to maybe move up.

We LOVED our Stay at Coronado last year, was such a phenominal resort, gave you the most of like a souther resort feel, while still being able to hop on a bus and be at a disney park in less than 30 mins.

Everything depends on Santa!!! It looks like our Mardi Gras trip may have to be an end of school trip. C'mon Santa, I've been a nice boy all year.

Reddy, this is something I posted on the discount thread .... you will still get a discount, not sure how much will AS Movies ... but ...

Even though the prices go up, you may still get a pretty decent discount ....



Running with Danny25's Schedule of Discounts coming January 3rd, Follow the math.

May 5 - 10 Stay at Pop !!!
Stnd Room, Pool view

Room and tick Cost. ...... 1427
Add Quick Serv Dining.... 1803
Total Cost of QS DP ...... 376

According to discount guide

Room Cost ................... 615
Ticket Cost .................. 582
Total ..........................1197
Add QS Dining full price...1573

Total Savings ................230
Total Cost of QS DP........ 376

Pretty intersting, not quite Free dining, but about 66% as good ?

I will join the party even though I am not sure if we are going. I am one of the ones who is always scheming, i mean planning a trip when there is really no trip in sight. We are already planned for a family Universal/Seaworld trip in June. If the rates are good, my boys and I might get a Disney trip in the week before everybody arrives.
