    Hey Dave! I’m sure you recognize my name. hahah Anyways I just learned about the “Bounceback” offer but after our stay at Caribbean Beach Resort in April ’15 we wasn’t offered the “Bounceback” deal. Do they still do that? If I they do, is it too late to call to try to get the deal and is it worth it? Also when we booked our April trip I had used our “Come Back to the Magic” special (35% off room only at a moderate) they sent to my e-mail how often do they send those out do you know by chance? Sorry Dave there’s a lot of questions in this short little note I’ve sent!!!! Oh and here’s another 🙂 for you since you said you tend generate more questions than smiley faces. Have a magical day Dave!

      Lena!

      So on the bouncebacks, the word is that you have to book them before you check out. There’s not always a card in the room, so the trick is to call x8844 from your room phone (or 407-939-1923) and ask if there are any current offers…but again before you check out.

      On the “how often they send out the email offers” (known colloquially as “pin code offers”), no one knows…

    We live on a small budget. But I wanted to give my kids some kind of Disney World experience while they were still young. I planned a trip for our family of 4 for $500.00 out of pocket. This is how I did it. : http://www.disneyfor500.com/2014/01/how-i-did-it.html

    I am addicted to finding huge deals at Disney. It seems like a great deal of my day is devoted to finding new tips and tricks. One of my favorite recent tricks I just read about using a credit card to buy a Disney gift card and save a lot of money.

    I have a reservation at Art of Animation in October 2013. I’m wondering if I can use this reservation, buy tickets through the Youth Education Program (great discount), and still add a dining plan. I called the reservation hotline, but the lady only knew of the YES program for groups. The website offers individual enrollment. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
