If my friend in the college program is there until May and we aren't going until July, can she still get us a room with a discount?

No, sorry she wouldn't. She would have to go to the resort within a few days of your arrival to show here valid Cast ID which she won't have anymore.

Go for the heartstrings to make it a solid sell!

I told my mom - well... you could always give us your extra DVC points and keep the kids for us for that week *wink wink nudge nudge*

Does anyone know if your stay spanned over the end of the 50%, would the room discount and/or DP discount run the length of your stay or just the days that fall w/in the timeframe of the promo?

No because the CM must show their valid company ID to the resort 10 days before your stay. If they don't show their ID the resort can charge you the full difference in going rate for the room.

I was never ballsy enough to not go show them my ID so idk if every resort follows the rules or not.

For those "in the know" here...is this the first time the Friends and Family discount has gone up as high as 50%? Or (and this is my hope!), does this happen each year during a slow time?

In 2005 I had a cm discount of 50%. We booked six months out that year. Last year it was 40% then changed to 50% about a month before check in and that stay was aver July 4th.

Always check the deals!

I was a cast member for three years in the parks and also for the Disney store which is completely separate discounts ( like ESPn and abc)

The friends and family must be booked by a valid cast member at the time. I was able to fax my id the one time I was out of state when my family
Checked in because I got clearance ahead of time.

As for the deals they are constantly changing and if you know a cast member ha e them check weekly. For example last march I had a week long vaca planned with my friend and I was using the 50% off cast member discount because I was staying with her. After I booked two weeks later I noticed a deal going on during our travel dates it bumped the room up to 60% off and made the dining plan extremely affordable quick serve plan was 16 per adult per day and Disney dining plan was 28 per adult per day..when you look at the math those prices are less than one meal a day( meal being drink, entree, desert at QS on average is 16-17 and TS 20-25 per meal) so in the end we were getting all our snacks for free and at least one meal a day for free each.. After the vaca was over we totaled our savings to be over 350 just on our food from receipts those few days. At the time I used my main gate to have her enter free and our hotel was really cheap. I have lucked out and used deals like this more than 5 times for family vacations and others and have really saved 1000's over the last couple of years.

Moral of my long story, have your cast members friends or family check everyday for new deals ( you can change your reservation all the way up to the day you check in)
