Yes, impatiently waiting to see what the hotel discounts are. Started a trip budget spreadsheet using the 2021 discounts as a placeholder and it’s possible the military discount on dvc rooms (booked with Disney as hotel rooms) might be comparable to renting dvc points. :crossed_fingers::crossed_fingers:

All set, thanks Tink!

Usually they release ticket and room discount information at the same time. Maybe they will not be giving room discounts. I remember years ago that if the SoG was full they would offer us the same rate at the Swan or Dolphin; as a result we stayed there a few times in the past. SoG no longer makes those offers, that I’m aware of anyway. I’m surprised Steve from the Military blog didn’t make that statement he usually does; “Any military DoD benefit is a gift and not to be taken for granted.”

FYI, I asked my TP travel agent to check on the military salute room discount since specific discount percentages aren’t given online.

*CBR, POP, campsites, and Villas Grand Floridan are excluded from discount. Other resorts may be extremely limited (Boardwalk had only 1 villas available for our dates)

Discounts will probably vary by date but our quotes for Boardwalk 1 bedroom and AKL 1 bedroom in May are about 35% the WDW rack rate and that price is actually lower than renting points from 3 rental shops I check. Plus booking it as a room only or package means deposit only can use Disney Visa for points and financing and can cancel if needed.

Also, our agent is able to add the Universal Orlando’s 2022 Freedom Pass to our Universal package instead of buying on base.

Universal’s military room discount for Sapphire Falls/Royal Pacific in mid May, discount was ~25%. It’s possible that military room discount is only available with package not room only.

I don’t really know anything about Universal’s military room rates or pkg. I will tell you if you buy the Military Salute from anywhere other than a mil installation you will pay more b/c they will add tax at the least and some places add on handling charges. The prices at SoG are what they list w/o any other charges includ. tax.

Historically mil room discounts have been 35% (deluxe), 25% (moderate), 15% (value). They seem to vary a little and have changed over the years. They have a set amount of inventory, but If they don’t have anything at one time they might later b/c military families frequently have to cancel trips due to TDYs & deployments. Keep checking back.

this is interesting… I wonder if the first two are due to their popularity/demand due to SL?

That’s my guess - it’s possible current bookings for those resorts in 2022 are better than the rest.

Also, quote for 2 Pop rooms w/o discount was still cheaper than 1 AoA Lion King Suite with the discount so at least for Pop it’s still more economic than the family suite, at least for us with an older kiddo.

I think these are priced at/similar deluxe rates, right?

Very true, for the WDW salute tix, we always buy on base, but the Freedom Pass is cheap enough that if a vacation package is required for Universal room discount, it might be worth the extra tax for a longer stay since Freedom Pass is a flat price. If Universal hotel discount is good for room only reservation, I wouldn’t book a package.

Waiting to hear back from my agent if package is required. Will post once I get an answer.

This is such a GREAT deal! We’ve never stayed on USO property. Good luck w/ finding the best deals.

oh BTW: We had Military Salute tickets that we converted into an AP, when they resumed sales. The CM tried to use a price lower than what we paid at SoG. I still had my receipt and the CM ended up honoring the amount we paid.

I love the Freedom Pass deal! We stayed at Sapphire Falls for the first time last trip (rollercoasters and Harry Potter!) and liked it so much we’re doing it again this trip. This time we’re going to try out the Adventura.

That’s a great tip to know. Right now, we’re too far away to normally use APs (I can drive to Aulani in 30 min) but we may plan a trip next Christmas with friends so I’ll remember to keep my receipts.)
