Like Disneyland, Walt Disney World Resort of Florida also has several Special Offers currently available. These special offers for Disney World range in nature from free dining to room only discounts to special discounts available for members of the United States military.
Special offers from Disney, like the ones to be mentioned later in this article, are limited in nature. This means potential Disney guests will need to seek out which (if any) special offer is the best deal for them and then book as early as possible to insure the desired special is still available.
Free Dining Special Offer
One of the most popular Special Offers ever promoted by Disney World has got to be Free Dining. The current incarnation of the special was announced in early August although there have been several modifications to that program since first available.
According to Disney, the free dining option is available for guests booking select 4-night / 5-day Magic Your Way room and ticket packages. Valid arrival dates for the special are currently listed as January 8 – 12, January 21 – February 2, February 11 – 16, March 3 – 8 and March 24 – 29.
Qualified packages at one of Disney World’s value resorts will receive the Quick-Service Dining Plan added on to their package at no additional charge. The Quick Service Plan entitles members of the package to get two quick service meals and one snack per night of their stay. Those guests will also receive a free resort refillable beverage mug.
Guests booking a qualified package at a moderate, deluxe or deluxe villa resort will receive the Disney Dining Plan for free. This plan entitles guests to one table service meal, one quick service meal and one snack per night of their stay.
Room Only Discount
Guests who book through December 21, 2011 for stays most nights January 2, 2012 to February 20, 2012 may be able to get a special Room Only Discount of up to 35% off of normal rack rates. The special is tiered so that those opting for a value resort will receive a smaller percentage discount under the special than those booking a deluxe villa.
Value resort discounts are listed at up to 25% off of normal rack rates. Moderate resorts are offering up to 30% off of those rates. Deluxe Resorts are listing up to 35% off with deluxe villas going for a flat 35% off of rack rates.
Members of the United States Military may be entitled to special Military Discounts. Currently, Disney World is offering both room and ticket offers under this special.
The room discounts entitle qualified military members and their families to up to 40% off of rack rates at one of the Disney World Resort hotels. The ticket discount offers 4-day military promotional park tickets for only $138. Standard price for a 4-day ticket is currently listed at $243.
Disney is also offering a discount to add-on the Water Parks Fun and More option and Park Hopper to those military promotional tickets. This can be done for only $27. This option normally runs $55 per option per ticket.
To book any of these Disney World Special Offers, contact Disney or your local travel agent.
