for December. It's not looking so good for discounts, right now. I believe there may be a little incentive for your dates, but I wouldn't expect a lot this year.

I agree with Bete that it's too early, but just to show what mousesavers shows for last year's deals for your dates and when they came out:

9/30/12-12/13/12 package deal (“free dining”) for Disney’s Visa cardholders became available on 7/9/12, exp 9/29/12

9/30/12-12/13/12 package deal (“free dining”) for general public became available on 7/12/12, exp 9/29/12

9/30/12-12/22/12 5%-30% off general public room-only rates became available on 8/27/12, exp 9/29/12

9/30/12-12/24/12 20%-35% off Annual Passholder room-only rates became available on 8/28/12, exp 12/24/12

For your dates and resorts, it would have been 30% for the room only discount:

I'm waiting as well, but it doesn't look too good, IMO, for big discounts. We are going to be there 12/16-12/19 and then 12/22-12/24 (with a 3 night cruise in between) and I noticed the week of the 16th is now peak season pricing rather than value.....and of course the 22-24th is holiday pricing . But I'm not giving up hope as anything is possible and even the littlest discount is something .

Planning our first WDW trip. DH,DD (4) and I. Decided 12/1-12/7. Polynesian TP view room. No meal plan. 7 day parkhopper tickets. Am I ready to call and reserve? Will be using my Disney Visa so does the 6 month interest free financing automatically register?

Last year we stayed the third week in December on FD. I inquired about a bounceback and there was a room discount but no free dining offered. IIRC the discounted dates were 11/30 thru 12/04 and 12/15 thru 12/18. Really short time spans, would not cover most people's entire vacation.

Pop Warner is between those dates, as is the MK parade taping. They never seem to discount the PW and parade taping dates. PW is usually the first week of December, but with Thanksgiving late this year it has been pushed up.

Of course things may change and discounts might be offered, but going by the bounceback dates it doesn't look good for December 2013.

Do you have the specific dates for PW this December? Where do they usually stay?

Thanks for the info. Pop Warner is what exactly? I keep hearing the term. Our dates are definitely flexible as we are driving and can take off work flexibly so hopefully that will help. But even a few nights helps

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Hey mcjingles, pop Warner is when our happy place is over run by cheerleaders, and ball teams, it is defiantly worth missing it is a huge headache. But on the positive side they all stay at the values, and moderates most of the time, so with you staying Poly it won't be so bad, until you hit the parks. Good Luck. By the way we are supposed to be there that week as well. can't wait.

I just spoke with a cast member that couldn't confirm, but suggested I'd book now to get what the location I want and that I should keep a look out for specials they normally offer for the month of December. I tried to see if the free dining was a possibility but she said she didn't know what the discount would be but was fairly certain one would become available.

I have spoken to 2 CMs that have told me the same thing. One asked if we would do the DP if it wasn't free and I said no.
