Summer is in full swing at Walt Disney World, and though things got off to a blockbuster start this year with the opening of Pandora - The World of Avatar, attendance has softened a little as 2017's tourist season has progressed. However, in an effort to attract some last-minute guests, it looks like Disney has announced a number of new deals that will apply to guests visiting the resort in the next few weeks.
If you are thinking about going to a Disney park in the near future (and especially if you are planning to stay on-property), here are some easy ways you can save some money right now that you should definitely know about!
1. Discounted "Magic" ticket offer returns for the rest of the summer
It hasn't been offered every year, but when attendance starts to dip, one of the first deals Disney offers is the 4-Park Magic Ticket, which allows guests to enjoy deeply discounted admission into one park per day for four separate days. However, instead of only being available for Florida residents, Disney has extended this deal out in 2017 to all guests for the remainder of the summer. These special discounted tickets cost $79 per day for adults, which is a significant savings over the usual $115 per day admission cost. Total ticket price is $316 per adult and $296 per child, plus tax. Interested guests can purchase these tickets online until the end of the month on July 30, 2017.
Of course, as with all discounted offers, there are some significant restrictions on these tickets. First off, they are only valid for admission until the end of the summer on September 30, 2017. Guests who purchase them will also need to use all of their four park days 14 days from the first time they use them or by September 30, 2017, whichever one comes first. And while these tickets permit reentry to the same park on the same day, they cannot be used to park hop.
Still, even with the restrictions, this is a great deal, and if you are planning a trip this summer and haven't bought theme park tickets yet, you could save some serious money with this summertime offer.
2. Disney Springs announces free money gift card offer
Beginning in just a few days on July 10th, guests who purchase a limited-edition $100 Disney Springs Shopping Card at World of Disney will receive an additional $25 bonus Shopping Card that can be used on future visits, redeemable beginning the following day. Both cards can be used at Disney owned and operated merchandise locations at Disney Springs as well as the Shop Disney Parks app. However, while the initial $100 shopping card does not have an expiration date, the bonus card can only be used until October 29, 2017.
