Though Disney made waves earlier this month when they announced a nightly parking fee that would be imposed on all resort guests, effective this week, it seems like the bad news has been tempered somewhat with some good news, as Disney has announced some special summer-only deals for guests looking to save a little bit.
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 kids this summer
Guests who are looking to stay on property this summer with little ones can take advantage of a new deal that includes a free dining plan just for children (ages 3-9). As with all free dining deals, families looking to take advantage of this deal must book a package with full-priced room, tickets and a dining plan (the discount will be applied to the child's portion upon payment).
This deal is valid for summer stays between June 11th and August 30th and a minimum of 3 nights stay and 3-day Base Ticket is required. Guests may choose any of the three dining plans: Quick Service Dining, Standard Dining, or Deluxe Dining for this deal, which means the discount per child works out to $21.75 per child per night for Quick Service, $25.75 per child per night for Standard, or $39.99 per child per night for Deluxe.
Note: this offer excludes Villas at Grand Floridian, Bay Lake Tower, Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs, Bungalows at Polynesian Bungalows & Villas, Cabins at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins, Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation Resort, Fort Wilderness Cabins, Campsites and 3-bedroom villas.
2. Incredible summer room discount now available
Walt Disney World has also announced a new hotel-focused deal that will allow guests to get a discount of up to 25% off of a room only or the room portion of packages at select on-property hotels for stays between June 11th and August 30th, with no minimum stay restrictions. Additionally, guests do not need to purchase theme park tickets to take advantage of this deal, which makes it a great choice for annual passholders. Here’s the discount breakdown:
- Up to 25% off most Deluxe and Deluxe Villa resort rooms
- Up to 20% off most Moderate resort rooms
- Up to 20% off most Value resort rooms and Campsites
As with the free dining deal, this offer excludes Villas at Grand Floridian, Bay Lake Tower, Bungalows at Polynesian Bungalows & Villas, The Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation Resort, campsites, and 3-bedroom villas. Stays must be booked by August 10th to take advantage of this deal.
