    I would not say they are as scarce as free dining, I've never had an issue getting the discount. Even as our trip got closer last year availability with teh discount opened up in Coronado Springs and a few other moderate resorts as well.

    At the very minimum you will end up with a nicer room at what you are paying now more likely than not. Just be ready the day it goes live to get the call in or keep watching after as room changes always create more availability.

    I would think with Toy Story opening in the summer, there will be people waiting for that to go to WDW, so I'm hoping it works in all of our favor.

    Can you do stay play and dine with an AP?

    Not unless you purchase tickets. That's the "play" part of the package and existing APs do not qualify.

    So in the past it runs for the first few days in March, about until March 6 or 7. If my vacation starts on March 5, does the deal work for the entire length of stay?

    Also, is it more wise to book now and call for an adjustment, or just book when the plan is available?

    We were supposed to be 9/6-9/13 and changed due to the hurricane as well but our new dates are 1/24-1/31.

    As long as you check in on a date that is included in the offer, it will be good for your entire stay.

    Did they work out any deals for you? If we take the exact same trip and move it to next year it will be about $1500 more. It just makes me sick.

    Virtually nothing changed for us so nothing has to be worked out. The only difference is no discount applied yet but will be once the January 2018 discounts are out.

    We are also looking at visiting in January for the first time after canceling due to the hurricane. Can someone explain the play, stay dine? We have always gone in September and free dining is pretty easy to figure out. PSD seems vague so not sure what the actual discount is.

    Varies. Last year was awesome - mid to upper 70's with a couple days in the lower 80's. Shorts during the day and swimming in the evening. Two years before that it was bone chilling cold and we wore winter coats all day. Fun either way.

    I'm new to this blog as well as being a Chase Visa Card holder. Could you explain a little to me what a Chase Visa code is and how does it work? My family is going to Disney World the 3rd week in February. We've booked already with a TA. What are the discounts that a code gives?

    Thank you!

    There really is no "Code" it is a discount you can apply if you are a Chase Disney Visa cardholder. Your TA would have to apply the discount on your behalf. look in prior posts on what the Play Stay Dine discount is specifically.

    This will possibly be my first trip going with children (ages 2.5 and 1 at time of travel). From everything I am reading, it is probably a better route for me to do a room discount than Play, Stay and Dine, correct? My kids are pretty big eaters for their age, and seeing how the dining plan wouldn't apply to them, we will end up having to buy them a meal regardless. TYIA for the help!

    Room discount is usually better for those staying at deluxe resorts and Play, Stay & Dine discount is better for Value. Moderates is a mixed bag. So check both kinds of discounts for where you want to stay and see which is cheaper.
