Special offers for Disney Destinations

New 2018 Walt Disney World Discounts

The first offers for 2018 Walt Disney World vacations are now available!  There are two main offers, plus variations on those offers.  See the end of this post for more details.

The best offer is the Play, Stay, Dine offer, which is among the best discounts offered on Walt Disney World packages.  This offer covers January, February, and early March 2018.  This offer applies to packages that include your hotel, tickets, and a dining plan.

The other offer now available is Gift of Magic room discount.  This is a good discount that covers various dates from January through April 2018.

Winter is one of my favorite times to visit Walt Disney World.  The weather can vary a lot, but I love having a sunnier and warmer destination vacation to look forward to when it’s cold and snowy at home!  These discounts cover the 2nd Festival of the Arts in Epcot, plus the beginning of Flower & Garden Festival in Epcot.

If you’re planning a spring break trip to Florida, now is the time to start looking at packages so you can have your pick of more hotel and room options!  Request your free Walt Disney World quote today!

Fall 2017 Room Discounts

A new Walt Disney World room discount is now available for late summer to fall 2017!  This offer covers travel dates August 1-October 7, 2017.  This offer overlaps a previous Summer Room discount that covered dates through the end of August.

This room offer also coverts to a package offer when you add theme park tickets.

Construction at moderate hotels has made booking Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter more competitive, so these hotels are selling out earlier than usual.  This means fewer discounts are available.

If you’d like to travel to Walt Disney World this fall it’s wise to book as soon as possible.  The earlier you book the more hotel and room options we’ll have to choose from.  Request your free, no-obligation quote today!

Free Dining for 2017

The most anticipated news every year is the release of the free dining offer!  The Free Dining offer is now available for fall 2017 dates with some changes.

A Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus ticket is required to qualify for free dining.  New for 2017 value and moderate hotels get the Quick Service Dining Plan included.  Deluxe and Villa hotels get the basic Dining Plan included.  You can upgrade to a higher dining plan and pay the difference.

As usual, many dates are excluded from the discount.  This includes all of October, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the first half of November.

There are several hotels excluded from the discount for 2017.  Refurbishment and construction at the hotels has made booking more competitive.  Little inventory was available at the release, and later on it’s common to see only a deluxe or villa hotel available for many dates.  Qualifying for Free Dining typically requires a lot of flexibility and that is even more true this year.
