Now that the holiday season has finally drawn to a close, Disney is looking at what could be a very soft 2018. In order to get ahead of this trend, Disney released some pretty deep discounts back in December, and now that the new year is finally here Disney has released even more discounts in an effort to boost up what could be a difficult year for the resort.
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. Free quick service summer meal package for value resorts now available for booking
Guests staying this summer at one of Walt Disney World's value resorts can take advantage of a new offer that includes a one free quick service meal per person, per night with the purchase a Walt Disney World vacation package that includes a minimum 3-night stay at a Value resort with a minimum 2-day ticket. Maximum stay for this deal is 14 nights.
This new deal is valid for summer visits that include arrivals between May 29th and August 25th, and Quick Service meals can be used for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Guests will get all the meals at once when they check in so they can pace them out at their convenience.
Guests can upgrade this basic "free" dining plan to one of the three standard plans: the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan, the Disney Dining Plan, or the Disney Deluxe Dining plan, by paying the difference in price. For this deal, Disney is valuing this slimmed-down quick service plan at $18.16 per adult, per night or $7.51 per child, so if you're looking at other meal plans, using this offer could be a good way to get a decent discount. This deal is valid for all value resorts except for the Art of Animation - Little Mermaid rooms.
