Right now is a good time for budget-conscious consumers to visit Walt Disney World, as the resort has rolled out quite a few freebies and deals in recent months that offer discounts on everything from half price theme park tickets for friends and family to double-digit markdowns on value, moderate and deluxe hotel rooms for stays this fall.

Though this fall has already proven to be quite an impressive season for deals, there are even more discounts, freebies and more coming to Walt Disney World in September. Perhaps unsurprisingly, many of these limited-time offers are for Walt Disney World annual passholders, but there are a few that can be used by all guests, including one deal that was announced for the summer, but has now been extended for the fall, plus a significant discount on one of Epcot's most expensive upcharge experiences! 

1. Cirque du Soleil introduces two limited-time ticket deals for annual passholders

Walt Disney World annual passholders who want to check out La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil at Disney Springs next week will be able to take advantage of special pricing for specific ticket tiers. For performances taking place between September 18 through the 26th, passholders can enjoy the following special discounted rates:

  • $59 plus tax for a Category 3 ticket
  • $69 plus tax for a Category 2 ticket
  • $85 plus tax for a Category 1 ticket

For guests who would like to see this show a little bit later in the fall, there’s also another limited time deal for annual passholders who have children between the ages of 3 and 9: Between now and December 16th all children's admissions are half off with the purchase of a (non-discounted) adult ticket.

2. Refillable popcorn deal extended until the end of next month

The refillable, souvenir popcorn bucket deal that was introduced at Walt Disney World this past summer has been extended and will now be available for guests to take advantage of through the end of October. In case you need a refresher, guests can now purchase a special refillable popcorn bucket for $10 with each additional refill costing $1.50 each throughout each guest's length of stay. However, if you're heading to the park with your refillable bucket from the summer, be aware that a new fall-inspired design is debuting soon and guests will need to have the new design to be eligible for the discounted refill.  

While this deal doesn't specifically include annual passholders, Cast Members have not been asking about stay length, which makes this a great deal for locals who want to fill up their popcorn buckets again and again at the park this fall as the weather cools down. 



Do you mean guests returning to collect multiple glasses in a day was a problem? I could certainly understand that. However, when specifically asked, cast members last year explained that AP were eligible for a glass for every three days visited during food and wine....
