This holiday season, give the ultimate Disney gift to your family, and yourself, by booking a Walt Disney World vacation. Traveling from Long Island, this is often a trip that fans postpone or push aside altogether. Luckily, there are ways to save on your next Disney vacation that can take a dream and turn it into a reality. Here are some money-saving tips for 2013.
Play, Stay & Dine Package
This special offer is only available if you book your trip before Dec. 31. Vacations can be booked for select times from Jan. 2 – Feb 13 and include different dining plan options depending on where you stay. By staying at select Value Resorts, you can get the Quick Service dining plan included with your stay. The regular dining plan is available when you stay at select Moderate, Disney Deluxe, or Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts. These plans can save you hundreds of dollars, all depending on how long your stay is and the size of your party. (For a group of two adults and two children on a 5-night/6-day trip at a Moderate Resort, you can save over $600.)
Check the website for availability as only so many rooms are set aside for this special offer.
Add some extra Disney magic after you book a Play, Stay, and Dine vacation package by having a Disney character call your home. After your trip is booked, look through your travel information for details on how you can get a phone call from either Ariel, Sebastian, or Lumiere.
If you’re not looking to include a dining plan with your Disney vacation, discounts are available for just select resort rooms. If you book your trip before Dec. 31, you can save anywhere from 15% off on Value Resort rooms up to 35% off on Deluxe and Deluxe Villa rooms. This discount applies most nights from Jan. 2- Feb. 13.
