    I just got 10% taken off our camping costs for our pop up (Sunday through Thursday) with the new Sun and Fun discount! Woot!! It just became available today! It's not a lot but every little bit helps! :dumbo:

    I agree, jenjen61. Every little bit helps.

    Best way to try to find this discount is to go the link above and use the button on the right to "Check Availability". Book through March 7. Dates are different for other resorts but a spring campsite discount is very rare indeed. Good find!

    PS - which means advance reservations are dragging and need a little propping up.... :scratchin

    You are lucky - we miss out on 2 counts. Firstly our full hookup site is for April 21-28th and our daughter's cabin is for the same period. So we're out of the timeframe for our campsite and the cabins are not included in the other discount :sad:

    Sorry you miss the time frame for your campsite! Is your daughter staying in a Fort Wilderness cabin? If so, those ARE included in the Sun and Fun discount. Cabins at Disney’s Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge are excluded but not the Fort Wilderness ones. I'm seeing a "Save up to 20% discount" on Fort Wilderness cabins during the time of your stay. I don't mean to give you false hope but maybe you should look again? :)

    Thanks for the info, sent a note to my TA who is a Disney specialist and hopefully get over $700 CDN back.

    **Edit** Whoot, whoot - getting $542.71 usd discount back on our daughter's cabin reservation! Canadian dollar is getting stronger meaning we'll get less than $700 back but that could change between now and when the transaction is processed.

    How often do they offer discounts? Is it an offseason thing?

    In the past several years there has only been a September discount for campsites. That's why there is some excitement over seeing this one for the spring. They offer discounts when bookings for that time frame are slow. No discounts needed to fill the campsites Christmas-New Years since they book full nearly 16 months in advance. Halloween and Thanksgiving over 12 months in advance. Week before/after Easter 6-8 months in advance.

    They are rare as hen's teeth.

    Got it thanks for the info, September may work because Mickeys not so spooky starts toward the end of the month so any savings is welcome.
