    Question Is this too good to be true?

    I just received a flyer in the mail from Disney Destinations for $59/night between certain dates (7/29-8/02/07, 8/05-8/09/07, 8/12-8/29/07, & 9/2-9/29/07) with a pin#. Is this too good to be true? I've never seen anything under $79/night and I thought that was the absolute rock-bottom pricing. Are there restrictions on this I should know about? (I know that this is for the Value resorts.) Has anyone used one of the promotions you get in the mail? If I chose to use this deal, how would be the best way to make reservations?
    I believe in Happily Ever Afters.

    Disney does send out offers like that occasionally. Not sure who exactly they target. My dad got one (at my address) but I didn't.
    The offers are usually for a very limited number of rooms, only on select dates, and can't be transfered to another person.

    Not sure of the best way to make reservations, probably by calling the number on the card.

    As an AP, I've been getting offers for $59/night a couple times a year for the last several years. I've never seen less than $59.

    I got one a couple of weeks ago. I've seen prices in the $50s several times... and this is low season right after the summer rush.

    Yes it's true. The "August to September" rate also includes select moderates for $104/nite

    Whether you get a mailing or not, you're entitled to the discount if it's still available for your travel dates. I'm sure Mousesavers has the codes posted, if not, any travel agent would have been clued in before the promo hit.

    actually these mailings all come with unique pins that are attached to the person the code is sent to the aaa rep asked the disney rep if they could be used for anyone and she was told no and the person that it was addressed to had to be on the trip

    I believe i recieved one since I am a Disney Stockholder. It to my mom's house in my maiden name. She sent it to me. I had already booked my trip, but it was in the value season dates so I called and Disney honored it and it saved me 140.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It took a few minutes and only had to explain the name change thing once!!! The pin was definetly assigned to me since they had my maiden name and old address when i told them the pin number.
    I want to go back...and live in the world with the mouse

    That is stinking fantastic! I need to get on more lists. Although I thought I was already on a bunch!
    I would call Disney reservations and get it booked asap before the rooms ran out. So worth the price of admission.

    Wow, that's great. August is a cheap time to go, but it can be a killer. I was there two Augusts ago and each night I thought I was nearly hallucinating from heat exhaustion.
