With possible travel dates of November 1, 2009 through March 27, 2010, Walt Disney World is once again running a buy some get some free promotional package offer. The week of 12/25/09 through 12/31/09 is blacked out for this special.
Under the terms of the deal, those booking a 4-night/4-day non-discounted Walt Disney Travel Company Magic Your Way package at a moderate or deluxe on-property resort will get 3 nights and 3 more days of tickets added on for no additional cost. That is right, 3 more nights of the hotel and 3 additional days of park tickets for the same cost you were going to pay for the 4 night package.
Those wishing to stay at a on-property value resort are not completely out of luck as a buy 5 get 2 special is being offered at those locations.
Minimum ticket requirements are going to be enforced, for the buy 4 get 3 special, you are going to need to pay for at least 4 days of park tickets for each person in the reservation. For the buy 5 get 2 special at values, each person is going to have to purchase 5 days of park tickets.
These packages must be booked by December 20th, but packages may sell-out early, so do not wait. If you think you may want to go, it is probably better to book and have to cancel, then not book and be caught without.
It looks like the special does not become official until tomorrow, September 30th, but is available now for reservations, so here is your chance to get a jump on the crowds. Contact your travel agent for the correct pin codes to use, or wait until tomorrow to be able to book online at WaltDisneyWorld.com.
You may recall that Disney ran a similar special last year with a few slight differences; First, you could get the buy 4 get 3 special at the value resorts as well. Second, they were throwing in a $200 Disney Gift Card with all of the packages.
Evidently, this might be an indicator the economy is definitely improving as Disney is not having to offer the gift card this year.
The time frame for this promotion is usually a very nice time to visit as crowd levels are lower than at other times of the year. The temperature can be a bit more problematic but with proper clothes planning you could find it extremely enjoyable.
