Good news! My friend just got approved to stay until August. She has never used her discount. How much is the discount for July 13? We already have tickets from UNdercover Tourist. Do we qualify for dining plan? What is the discount on dining, tickets, etc? I'm excited She's going to ask her room mate how it works and will let me know. Anyone here know?

It is all on the hub. The discounts are always changing.

If she isn't using her main gates to get you in then tickets are 10% off. Also for everything except food and friends and family she has to pay. So you would have to give her cash or a gift card for any merchandise or tickets or anything.

So we could keep our tickets and add a discounted dining plan?

Also is this for any resort? We want AoA and a LM room.

Depends on availability. For awhile AoA was not allowed for CM discounts but not that it has been open for almost a year it may be open.

Know that values are sold the quickest and the longer you wait to book the less rooms if any will be available to book.

LMs have been excluded from the deeper discounts. I don't see that changing this year. Friends and family is 40% for July right now with a full price DP.

I'm good with the 40% for F&F if we can get that, it's still awesome!

S please break this down for me:

My DD is starting on August 12th, We are planning to go in Sept around the 20th. Would she be eligible for discounts by then and how do they breakdown? D you have to get everything a la carte (DDP, room, tix and hopper) or can you do a package? Also, what are the percentages off for each or is it just one discount off everything as a package.

Thanks for the help

Thanks to all who commented re: my question about the availability of the 50% discount! As for calling my CM friend to get him to check daily (or weekly) even, I probably would not do that, for fear of bugging him to death!!

Everything is ala cart.

She should be able to discount but a month prior has no guarantees of availability. If it is your daughter it will save you to put her on the reservation and send her the money to pay for it. If she is on the reservation she can book the highest CM discount but the way she pays has to be In her name. If you just want the F&F discount you can pay with your own CC.

Ticket discounts are 10% and there is a limit to how many she can buy. It is either a cash purchase or CC in her name.

Food is 20% or higher. Food does not have to be paid for by her she just has to be present. Also there is an automatic 18% tip added to all CM discounts for food.

DDP is not always discount for CMs so it will depend in the current offer when she gets there and books everything.

Merchandise is 20% but once again only she can use it. He can't let you pay and no one can know if they money was not originally hers.

What is the usual F&F discount for resorts? If she is on the ressie wouldn't she need to be in the room? I am not sure what her schedule would be so staying with us may not work out. Even though I would love to see her all the time. If there is not DDP discount that would be fine, getting the resort discount and tix discount is awesome enough.

If we book ahead of time on the wdw reservation line, can we then go back and make the necc. discounts or would it be too late.

How do people usually title the reservation, do they always include the CM (child) to get a bigger discount? I don't want to get her in trouble.

The res would have to be in her name and she would need to be there to get the CM discount. I wouldn't feel comfortable adding her just to get a higher discount since the reservation will be tied to her ID. The normal friends and family discount is 40% and as dates get closer they may drop it down to 50%. You can switch it around just like a normal res when discounts come out.

I might take out a Craigslist ad for a CM friend -

Wife and mom of 2 looking for Disney CM friend or family willing to share their F&F discount. Our family is very well behaved and appreciative. All qualified candidates please reply via email

Someone "in the know" answered earlier that it sometimes happens during slow times when they have more rooms to fill.
