Top 10 Ways to Save Money at a Walt Disney World Resort
°o° Do you want to stay onsite at a Walt Disney World Resort but find it cost-prohibitive? While staying at onsite can take a huge bite out of the wallet, there are several ways to make things a little less expensive. °o°
- Travel in Value Season - Many things are based on location, but cost of lodging at Walt Disney World is also based on time and resort level (Value, Moderate, Deluxe, Deluxe Villa). If your time of travel is flexible, choose a Value season trip for the best bang for your buck!
- Stay at a Value Resort - Do you plan on spending most of your time in the parks? Stay at a Disney Value Resort!
- Military Offers - If you are a member of the military, check to see if Walt Disney World is offering a military discount. There currently is a military discount through September 28, 2013 with a few black-out dates.
- Stay at Swan and Dolphin - While the Swan and Dolphin are not Walt Disney World owned resorts, they are considered onsite resorts. They do not have all the perks of Walt Disney World owned onsite, but they do offer year-round specials for military, nurses, teachers, AAA members, and Florida residents.
- Florida Resident Officers - If you happen to be a Florida resident, check to see if there is a current discount at the Walt Disney World resort of your choice.
- Best Value in Deluxe Resorts - If you want to stay in a Disney Deluxe Resort, try Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge or Disney’s Wilderness Lodge for a Deluxe resort at a slightly lower price.
- Best Value in Moderate Resorts - Do you normally stay at a Disney Deluxe Resort but want to save a little money on your next trip? Why not try Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, a Disney Moderate Resort with Queen-sized beds?
- Be Flexible on Your Travel Dates - If your travel dates are flexible, book your trip for a time that historically has discounts. Discounts are hard to predict, so this does not guarantee one.
- Stay at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort - Do you like to camp, or do you like having the comforts of home in your RV? Try out The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort?
- Pin Codes - If you are booking your own vacation, call and ask Disney if you have a PIN code attached to your name. If you are booking with one of The Magic For Less Travel agents, he or she will check for a PIN code for you. One never knows, and it doesn’t hurt to ask.
