Okay, you are the second person on this particular board to have quoted a CM saying that a PIN code could be used for up to three different rooms. Why would actual Disney staff members be saying this if it's not true??

Maybe the other person and I talked to the same *wrong* CM but in all seriousness

The last couple I have received have been about 3 months out from the 1st time frame of the offer. End of May... 3 months later... end of August. That's when these pins start. Here's hoping.
I SOOOOO hope you are right!

They'll be by email the cm I was talking to seemed very knowledgeable about the pins and she said "in a couple weeks be sure to check all your email folders because if you receive one that's where it will come."

Probably because they are new or not trained properly.

But I thought they could be used for up to three rooms. Just that the three people have to be travelling together and they all must be booked by the person who's name the pin is in?

Correct. The PIN holder can book up to three rooms with a single PIN.

No, that is correct, but I think those CM were not conveying the fact that the pin codes just can't be shared with anyone. The owner of the pin must book the reservations and there are restrictions involved, you simply can't call up a friend or neighbor or family member and just give them your name specific, non-transferrable Disney discount pin code and have them apply it to their vacation stay.

Got it thanks! I knew a lot about general public discounts and how they worked from our last trip, but I didn't pay much attention to pin codes before now. Probably because I never get the good ones.

I booked 3 rooms with pin code 2 years ago

so unless policy has changed you can as long as they're traveling with you.

I received this pin code also. Haven't been to disney since 2011....tempting. But offsite is still less expensive....oy.

I received this pin code e-mail a couple of weeks ago and I was able to book three rooms with it. I booked mine, my daughter's, and her friend (who is traveling with us). No problems.

A person can book up to three rooms with a pin but that is intended for people traveling with the lucky pin person, extended family or actual friends taking the trip with the pin person.. It is not intended to pass around to random people taking trips at the same time as, but totally separate from the pin person.

So if you tell a CM your friend has the pin, perhaps they assumed a close personal relationship with this friend?
