Can I ask how you all are figuring out your rates and discounts? I am trying to figure out which is less for 2 adults, no dining, 8 day park hoppers, either CSR or PO Riverside?

My wife really wants to do Poly ... but its like 8700 !!!! Just can't justify that, the rooms aren't much different at all ... I don't understand the rate increase at all really. Like, some rooms in the Grand Floridian are actually Terrible ... but still double the price of Mods .... is it just the access to the Monorail !? :P

Anyway, very happy for you, just hoping I can convert the POR King to the discount come Jan 3. So not impressed we can't get a disney visa here in Canada.
Agreeing on the annoyance at not being able to get a Disney Visa in Canada. It has been long enough that this should be resolved.

Agreed again, I honestly can't believe that its not resolved, or there isn't some other program we can enroll in for the early deals.

Even if it were just an online club, etc, rather annoying and unfair really.

Joining in...our current reservation:

AKL - Pool View
2A/ 2C
1 day tickets (will upgrade to 4 day if necessary when we call - then upgrade to PH & add WP&More when we check in).
Regular Dining Plan
$5089.01

Can't wait to see how the new deal plays out. I don't have the time or patience to try and figure out the numbers from the spreadsheet.

Not Canadian here, but I agree that it sucks. Especially since it's not a credit-based offer seeing as it also applies to the debit card that anyone with a checking account can get, I don't see why it should matter than someone was in Canada instead.

Count us in. DH and I are extending our trip with my parents and brother (3/31-4/3) to add on 4/3-4/5 or 4/6. The family is staying together at CR for the first half of the trip with the DxDDP and 5-day park tickets, but DH and I will move over to CSR when they depart for an additional couple of nights. We have a reservation already. Talked to a CM yesterday while watching Modern Marvels Walt Disney World on H2, and she said the deal will be available at 7am by phone on 1/3/13 (mine and DH's 9th anniversary), and to check out the Visa deal for the discounts. Not sure when it's available online though.

Have fun everyone!!

Our dates: June 1-7
We are already booked for May 23-29th, so I will see how this compares. We got a good TA special deal already for our dates, so it will be interesting to compare.

Apparently there's some kind of spreadsheet, been searching for it for quite a while. I'll probably just give up and see what Jan. 3rd brings, LOL!

Count me in

Booking May 12 to May 25 - 13 days ! As much as I want to stay in a moderate, I can't justify the cost so it is back to Values for me - Pop Century is my resort of choice. I only need the room as I have an annual pass.

On a side note, I agree with the Disney Visa for Canadians. Years ago when I asked they had said they were looking to have something for Canadians but nothing came out of it.

We have 3 kids under age 5 (1 is in a packnplay). Any suggestions? We are on a budget.
Our family of 5 always goes to Port Orleans Riverside. The rooms in their Alligator Bayou section sleep 5 and the room rate has always been less than family suites at the value resorts when we've checked.

I believe that these may be the spreadsheets you are looking for:

I'm in - will be looking to modify our already-booked split stay for April. A little nervous about getting through - I'll have to wait until 9-ish because I don't want to get stuck on hold and then need to drop to get DD on the bus. Hope wait times aren't too and that there are discounted rooms still available for our stay. Good luck to us all!

I am also thinking about going in May.

I have always gone in Sept for free dining, but that means I have always seen MK decorated for halloween.

Also, there is a rumor going around (from the same guy who told us about this deal) that they may not offer FD with values anymore.

So any discount will be good.

good luck to all! I can't stand the wait. I won't be able to get on the phone until 8:00 either due to dropping the kids off at school. Wonder how many others will jump ship from AOA...love the idea of staying somewhere new, but not if we can get a better deal somewhere else!
