What are your thoughts about possible deals for April and May?

Don’t miss out on these amazing discounts. I’m the dedicated DiF rep for yourfirstvisit.net readers—if you need help booking contact me at kellyb@destinationinflorida.com (let me know that Dave sent you).

Hi Jennifer! I expect special offers for the period beginning about a week after Easter through at least May to come out in later December.

So Dave, if I want to book now then for the time period Jennifer was asking about, can I change the reservation later and get the discounts from Disney? I am hoping to use either a Disney Visa Discount or Annual Passholder discount for the end of April so may only end up booking a room only. Should I do that now , in October 2014, and when the discounts come out i December call Disney to apply discount and then change my reservation in whatever manner I need to at that time to get discount? I’ve tried before to change reservations and apply discounts but it was such a hassle in the past. Will Disney honor discount still if I call soon enough or are they now making people loose deposits for changes to reservations or dates?

Here’s the deal: booking now neither helps nor hurts.

When the actual deal you want comes out, if you have a booking you need to call to try to change it, and if you don’t have a booking you can book the deal online. In either case you will be competing with others for the limited inventory that is in the deal–so there are no guarantees–and so long as you do all this before the date your final payment is due you won’t lose anything

Hey Dave, first of let me thank you for all the help on our first visit last year. We are now planning a second visit on November of 2015 our favorite offer of all is the free dinning since its a better offer than the room discounts in the value resorts. My question is, does it look like the free dinning will be available for that time??

7 Dave { 10.11.14 at 9:56 am }

Hi Eduardo, and thanks!! On free dining for then next year, honestly I have no idea. My bet would be no, but that’s a guess, not a prediction…

Have pin codes for 2015 been released? Received 2 separate pin codes for 2014, but need one for Jan 2015. What are my chances of receiving one?

9 Dave { 10.29.14 at 7:54 am }

Not that I know of, Allyson. And no one knows the odds that you will get one! Fingers crossed!
