How to Get a Discount Pin Code to a Disney Resort
 
Occasionally, some people will receive a postcard or newsletter containing a pin code for a discount to select Walt Disney World Resort rooms or packages. This pin code is nontransferable, so it can only be used by the person to whom it was sent. Although I do not know the exact way you can get a pin code sent to you, here are some suggestions that may work:

  1.  Register online at the official Walt Disney World website at www.disneyworld.com.  At the top of the screen, click on "Register". 

  2.  Sign up for every Disney-related newsletter available.  At the official Walt Disney World website at www.disneyworld.com, in the upper right-hand corner, click on "Sign Up".  Here is another website to sign up for a Disney newsletter:  WDW Public Affairs.  Click here to subscribe to        the Disney Insider newsletter.

  3.  Order a Walt Disney World vacation planning DVD and be sure to enter your email address.

Since I have done this, I have received both postcard and email pin codes.  Recently, I was able to use a pin code from an email to save money on a Disney resort AND I got the free Dining Plan at a time it was not being offered to the general public.  Give it a try.
