BLT - historical discounts?

I'd like to book a 2 bedroom villa in BLT - does Disney ever discount those? It seems in the sales out now and the few old ones posted here, BLT isn't mentioned.

I've looked into renting points, but with my family, too many last minute things happen, and we need to be able to cancel our reservation. Unfortunately, that means booking through Disney.

I'm looking at other villas, but am I pointlessly hoping that BLT will be discounted in Sept/Oct?

A discount on a 2 bedroom unit is almost impossible. They are very popular. If you are going to see a deal there, it is almost always for a studio unit....

Thanks! I booked one just to make sure we could get one, but I'm waiting for the sales to be announced to see if we'll stay there or switch to OKW.

We are staying at BLT for the second time, this April in a 2bedroom. The best room only discount I could find was AAA. I got 20% off rack rate, which adds up on a 2 bedroom. I will try to link to my earlier post about how I did it. You have to book early and I booked directly with WDW since it is room only. If you want a package, you book that through AAA directly. You can't book a AAA discount online with disney, you have to call.

Here is my earlier post about how I did the AAA discount at BLT.

"Thank you to all who answered. You are all correct, I had to call. Could hardly wait until this AM to see if my room/dates were even possible with AAA. I have been trying to get military discounts for our room(s) at BLT for April/May 2013, but so far can only get military rate for a studio (we need either a 2 bedroom villa or a studio + 1 bedroom villa).

After calling WDW travel and confirming AAA discount was available for my dates for studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom villas at BLT (), I quickly tried to find the best deal on getting an AAA membership ASAP!

Here is a code I found and used (AAA Texas) that might help someone else:

http://aaa.com/joinspecial

This worked for me today for Texas. Got a basic new membership for $52 for a year (I did not auto-renew for next year, but if I did, could have saved another $4.50). Waived $20 new member activation fee, waived $27 fee to add an additional adult. Not sure if it works for other states, but worked for me. Then I turned around and used it to book a 2 bedroom villa at BLT for late April/early May. Got 20% off of rack rate!! So for $52 out of pocket for the AAA membership, I saved almost $1550 over the 7 nights! Awesome!

Thanks so much to other posters here, as I was so fixated on trying to get the Military rate (which at 40% off the Deluxe would be the better deal than 20% with AAA, but now is seeming impossible to get for the BLT villas), that I wasn't thinking of other options. This thread got me thinking last night, and voila, I have now saved net $1500. THANK YOU! - See more at: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2956090&page=12#sthash.yNB61l66.d puf"
