Disney World Vacation Package Discounts

Castle by Steve Jurvetson ( CC )

LAST UPDATE: 4/13/24

Walt Disney World vacation package discounts are slightly less common than discounts on individual components (room, tickets, food), but there are good vacation package discounts to be had , and this page covers them all.

A “vacation package” for Disney World includes a room at an official Disney resort, plus either tickets or a dining plan or both. Disney World packages are popular because they offer convenience and simplicity, but sometimes you can save more creating your own “package” by buying tickets, hotel and food separately. Disney Vacation Package discounts are not always available for all future dates, and are released just 3-5 months in advance, so it’s a good idea to start your search early and keep checking back to see if package discounts have been released for the time frame you want.

Not sure which resort to pick for your Disney vacation package? Read about the various Disney resort types and our recommendations for the best values in each category.

Our value recommendations, package discounts for everyone.

  • Disney Visa Cardholder Discount Packages

Annual Passholder Packages

Ticketless packages with dining plan, bounceback package offer, package promotions with small world vacations, uk resident packages, canadian resident packages, online travel agencies, membership discounts, trip insurance, is a disney vacation package for you.

A Disney vacation package has traditionally included two key things: a hotel room and park tickets . (A hotel room by itself is not a package – it’s called a “room-only” reservation.) The park tickets must be multi-day tickets (2+ days), but can be any of the various park ticket types: Base (one park per day), Park Hopper, Water Park & Sports or Park Hopper Plus. You can also add a pre-paid dining plan to any package. There is also a “ticketless” package that includes a dining plan but no tickets. The “ticketless” package is not available online; you need to book it with a travel agent or over the phone with Disney.

A lot of people like Disney’s vacation packages because they are convenient and worry-free. You get everything you need (except airfare) with one purchase. However, it is important to note that the standard full-price Disney vacation packages are designed for convenience rather than savings. In most cases you will not automatically get a discount by purchasing a package! It can be cheaper to book a “ room only ” reservation (ideally with a discount) and then buy the package components ( tickets , meals , etc.) separately.

When Disney offers package discounts, usually they are calculated as a discount on the hotel portion of the package and are identical to a room-only discount offered at the same time; the tickets and dining plan are charged at full price. However, Disney sometimes offers exclusive promotional package discounts , particularly in the off-season, that do not have any room-only equivalent, where you get a discount on dining instead of (or in addition to) a hotel discount. Disney World packages have rules about advance payment, cancellations and changes that are usually much more restrictive than those associated with “room only” reservations. If you’re not sure about whether to buy a package vs. just booking your room and tickets separately, read our information on the pros and cons of vacation packages vs. room-only reservations  to help you decide.

It can be difficult to sort out what is best for your particular situation. That’s why we think it’s a good idea to have someone knowledgeable on your side, making sure all the details are covered. Our advice is this: if you want to book a Walt Disney World vacation package, we strongly recommend using a travel agent who specializes in Disney travel. It costs you nothing, and you can sit back, relax, and have all the vacation planning and hassle taken care of by someone else.

If you think you’d rather buy the various parts separately, take a look at our Disney World Resort Discounts page, where we cover room-only discounts on Disney hotels. If you are considering staying in a non-Disney hotel (and it’s worth considering; the savings can be significant), you’ll also want to check our recommendations for the best hotels near Walt Disney World . And of course you should visit our Walt Disney World ticket discount pages, and read our tips on saving money on food and drink .

Disney World vacation package options, prices and benefits change every calendar year. In most years, only a few minor things change, such as the list of shops and restaurants that provide coupons and discounts to package buyers. Occasionally there will be more extensive changes; when there are, we list them below.

The specific package you get is based on your check in date. So if you check in any time between January 1 and December 31, 2024, you will get the 2024 package benefits and pricing for your whole stay, even if the stay extends into 2025.

2025 Package Changes

For 2025, there were minor changes to the official Disney packages. The two core dining plans have returned: the standard Disney Dining Plan or the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan . The rates for most Disney hotel rooms have gone up by 3-6%, which is fairly moderate, historically. The “Magical Extras” discounts have changed slightly, with 10% discounts added for several Disney Springs restaurants, including Cookes of Dublin, Eet, Frontera Cocina, and Raglan Road.

2024 Package Changes

For 2024, the two most popular dining plans have returned; you can add either the standard Disney Dining Plan or the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan to any Disney Resort Hotel Package. Pricing for hotels has gone up again; we’re seeing increases of 4-7% for Value and Moderate resorts, and 7-10% increases for Deluxe and Deluxe Villa resorts. The “Magical Extras” discounts are largely the same as 2023, with a new discount of 10% off Surrey Bike rentals at multiple resorts.

Current Package Options

  • Disney Resort Hotel Package – This is the basic Walt Disney World vacation package, which includes accommodations at a Disney-owned-and-operated resort hotel, and Walt Disney World tickets for everyone in the group. By default, it includes Base (1 Park Per Day) tickets, but you can add Water Park & Sports, Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus options (for more money).
  • Disney Resort Hotel Package Including Disney Quick Service Dining Plan – This package includes everything from the Disney Resort Hotel Package, and adds a dining plan that includes two quick service meals and one snack per person, per package night, plus a resort refillable mug per person. You can choose from dozens of counter service restaurants across the Walt Disney World Resort.
  • Disney Resort Hotel Package Including Disney Dining Plan  – This package includes everything from the Disney Resort Hotel Package, and adds a dining plan that includes two meals (one table service, one quick service) and one snack per person, per package night at more than 100 restaurants across the Walt Disney World Resort. This plan also includes a resort refillable mug per person.
  • Walt Disney World Annual Passholder Package with Dining  – Walt Disney World Annual Passholders can purchase a special vacation package with either the Quick Service Dining Plan or the standard Dining Plan . It is not available online; you must book it with a travel agent or over the phone. The room rate on an Annual Passholder Package will include whatever current Annual Passholder hotel discounts are available, but the dining plan will always be charged at full price. This package does not include admission tickets, since obviously Annual Passholders don’t need that component of a vacation package.
  • Ticketless Package with Dining – This is essentially equivalent to the Annual Passholder Package: it combines a hotel room and either the Quick Service Dining Plan or the standard Dining Plan . You do not need to have an Annual Pass to book this package. It is not available online; you must book it with a travel agent or over the phone. Usually you can combine a hotel discount with this package (assuming your dates and resort qualify), but you can’t get exclusive package discounts like Free Dining. This is an option to consider if you really like the dining plan, but prefer to get your tickets from a discount source or have leftover tickets from a previous trip.
  • Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel Package – This is a simple combination of a stay at one of the Disney Springs Resort Area hotels plus 2-day or longer Walt Disney World tickets. A Disney Dining Plan cannot be added to this package.

Thanks to Small World Vacations for info.

  • To book a Disney World vacation package,  we recommend  filling out a quote form with Small World Vacations .  They give you full service, including a personal travel agent you can contact by email or direct phone number, and we recommend them wholeheartedly ! 
  • Why book with a travel agent? We find that the overall experience is better booking a package through a good full-service agency than direct with Disney, and the extra service costs you nothing ; their prices are identical to Disney’s, including all package discounts. Booking packages, especially discounted packages, often involves comparing many different booking options to see which gets you the best deal, and that’s one of the many things the best travel agents are great at doing.

The first thing you need to bear in mind is that Disney REALLY wants you to stay for at least 5 nights/6 days. For that reason, the tickets included in your package are heavily discounted on longer (5 to 10 day) stays . Remember that tickets are usually the biggest single expense in your package, and 7 day tickets cost only a little more than 4 day tickets. So live it up — price out the longer vacation and you’ll probably be surprised how little the extra cost will be.

For most people who buy a vacation package, the plain Resort Hotel Package (no dining) or the Resort Hotel Package Plus Disney Dining Plan will be the best value.

There is a daily, per-person cost to add the regular Disney Dining Plan to a basic package (current prices can be found on the dining plan page ). With the regular Dining Plan you’ll get a table service meal, a counter service meal and two snacks each day.

The Disney Dining Plan should be thought of primarily as a way of pre-paying your food expenses. It’s not really intended to be a discount plan. It’s possible to save a little vs. paying cash, and if you work every angle you can save more. Working every angle, though, means ordering only the most expensive items on the menu at every meal and eating at the highest-priced restaurants, which feels like a fairly significant constraint. One big exception: if you have children 9 or under and plan to visit a lot of buffets (half your table-service meals or more), you’ll probably save money without really having to work at it, as Disney’s child buffet prices are very high compared to other meals. Adding the Dining Plan to your package does allow you to prepay all or most of your food expenses (except for tips), and frees each person to order whatever they want without worrying about the price. If that sounds like an enhancement to your vacation, then a dining plan may be a good choice. Read our view on the pros and cons of the Dining Plan.

If your family isn’t into table-service dining, there is the Quick Service Dining Plan . The Quick Service Dining Plan is not a great way to save money, but might be attractive for other reasons. You will be lucky to break even vs. just paying cash for your meals and snacks. The Quick Service Dining Plan is not particularly flexible, since there’s no way to spend the meal credits on table service, buffets, or most smaller carts, food trucks or kiosks. For a light meal on the go, those kiosks and “snack” locations are often the best deals available. Bottom line: we don’t recommend the Quick Service plan as a money-saving strategy. It’s a good choice if you don’t like table-service restaurants and you want to pre-pay for your meals.

Disney usually has a selection of discounts available to anyone, including international guests. No special code or membership is required to use these, but there can be minimum stay lengths, blackout dates and other requirements. (We include Disney+ subscriber offers in this section, as the cost to subscribe to Disney+ is low enough to make them effectively available to anyone.)

Summer And Early Fall Package Offer

  • Stay Longer and Save More Package Offer

Get up to 30% off the room portion of a package at select official Disney World resorts for stays most nights from July 8 – October 3, 2024. There is no minimum stay length.

  • To book the Summer And Early Fall Package Offer, we recommend filling out a quote form with Small World Vacations . They give you full service, including a personal travel agent you can contact by email or direct phone number, and we recommend them wholeheartedly !

Disney Visa Cardholder Package Discounts

From time to time, Disney Visa cardholders will be offered a special discount that is either inherently a package or is a room-only discount that can be converted to a package by adding tickets and/or a dining plan. When there are package-specific discounts available, we list them here.

Also check the room-only Disney Visa discounts , as any Disney hotel booking can be booked as a package by adding tickets and/or a dining plan.

Disney Visa FREE Dining Package Offer

Disney Visa cardholders can book a FREE dining plan for all guests (age 3+) with purchase of a Walt Disney World vacation package that includes a full-priced room and Park Hopper tickets. Valid for most dates July 1 – 31, September 1 – 7 and December 9 – 21, 2024. You must book a minimum of 4 nights stay and a minimum 4-day Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus for each guest. If you check in on one of the included dates, you get the dining plan for every date in your stay, even if the stay extends past the included date range!

If you book a Deluxe or Deluxe Villa resort, the Disney Dining Plan is included for each guest. If you book a Value or Moderate Resort, the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan is included for each guest, but you can upgrade to the regular Dining Plan by paying the difference in price between the two plans.

This offer is tremendously popular each year and can be very difficult to book for certain dates. We’ve created a guide to booking Free Dining that covers some strategies that can make it easier to get.

Offer excludes all 3-bedroom villas, campsites & cabins at Fort Wilderness, Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs, bungalows at Polynesian Villas, cabins at Copper Creek, and all club level rooms. As with all Disney promotional discounts, some resorts, room types and date combinations will not be available. It’s important to be flexible if you want to book a discounted room. You must use a Disney Visa card to pay the deposit. The Disney Visa cardmember must stay in the room.

  • To book the Disney Visa FREE Dining Package offer, we recommend  filling out a quote form with Small World Vacations . They give you full service, including a personal travel agent you can contact by email or direct phone number, and we recommend them wholeheartedly ! 

Annual Passholder Packages  are vacation packages that have a room and dining plan but no tickets (since annual passholders obviously don’t need tickets). They can be booked any time, and when Passholder “room only” discounts are available, those discounts apply to the room portion of a passholder package. The Dining Plans are always full price and these packages are never eligible for “Free” dining, or other packages that involve reduced-price Dining Plan like “Stay, Play & Dine.” These bookings are subject to regular Walt Disney Travel Company package rules . Annual passholder packages can only be booked through a travel agent or via calling the Disney Reservation Center; they are not available online.

Please Note: Only the Quick Service Dining Plan and the standard Dining Plan are currently available to book.

  • To book an Annual Passholder Package,  we recommend  filling out a quote form with Small World Vacations .  They give you full service, including a personal travel agent you can contact by email or direct phone number, and we recommend them wholeheartedly ! 

Please Note: Not currently announced – might be available after January 9, 2024.

Ticketless Packages with Dining  are vacation packages that include a room and dining plan but no tickets. They are just like the Annual Passholder Packages, above, except that they don’t include the Annual Passholder room discounts. They can be booked any time, and when “room only” discounts are available, those discounts apply to the room portion of these packages. The Dining Plans are always full price and these packages are never eligible for “Free” dining, or other packages that involve reduced-price Dining Plan like “Stay, Play & Dine.” These bookings are subject to regular Walt Disney Travel Company package rules . Ticketless packages can only be booked through a travel agent or via calling the Disney Reservation Center; they are not available online.

  • To book a Ticketless Package,  we recommend  filling out a quote form with Small World Vacations .  They give you full service, including a personal travel agent you can contact by email or direct phone number, and we recommend them wholeheartedly ! 

“Bounceback” vacation package offers are offers made by Disney ONLY to guests who are currently staying at one of the official Walt Disney World resorts. The idea is to encourage you to “bounce back” to Disney World by planning your next vacation right now. These offers are not always available and could end at any time.

When a bounceback vacation package offer is available, you may be able to book a discounted vacation package (accommodations plus at least a 1-day Base Ticket) for a stay on selected dates at a Walt Disney World resort. Not all dates are offered, and not all resorts and room types will be included.

To qualify, the reservation for your next vacation must be made after you check in or up to 7 days after you check out , and there are no exceptions made . You must call the number provided (usually on a flyer in your room) and pay a $200 deposit when booking.

If you don’t get a bounceback offer on a flyer in your room, the resort TV channel may be showing this offer, or you may receive an email from Disney during your stay. You can also try asking the front desk and/or Housekeeping for a flyer. Even if you can’t find a flyer, you can dial x8844 from your room phone and ask if there are any current offers. You can also call (407) 934-7639 from your mobile phone, but keep in mind you must actually have checked into a Disney-owned hotel to be eligible to book a bounceback offer.

  • The current offer appears to be a room-only discount offer, which can be booked as a package if desired, by adding full-price tickets and/or dining plan. It comes and goes, and has varying discounts depending on resort and date.

The Disney specialist travel agency we recommend, Small World Vacations , gladly works with clients around the globe. They have many clients from the UK and Ireland. Unfortunately they cannot book UK-specific offers, but sometimes the American offers are a better deal. It’s also worth noting that the US vacation package offers have much more advantageous cancellation and change policies than the UK holiday package offers.

  • You can also check the UK Visitors page for current package offers that are specific to the UK.

Canadian residents can book the US offers listed above. The Disney specialist travel agency we recommend, Small World Vacations , gladly works with clients around the globe. They have many clients from Canada.

In addition, you can visit Walt Disney World’s Canadian website  and select the Special Offers tab to see any current deals specific to Canadians, but most of the time the offers are the same as those distributed in the US. Sometimes the Canadian offer will have a different discount code, but otherwise it will be identical to the US offer. If we learn of any specials for Canadians only, they are listed below. Small World Vacations can book most Canadian packages as long as you are traveling at least 45 days from the date of booking.

Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) such as Expedia , Travelocity , Orbitz , etc. typically cannot book Disney Vacation Packages, which means they can’t book any of Disney’s special package discounts like Stay, Play, and Dine or Free Dining, and they can’t book packages with the Disney Dining Plans at all. They can be a good way to book a room-only discount , if they are offering some kind of discount code or coupon of their own that stacks on top of Disney’s own discounts. If not, they will typically have the same room rates as Disney.

All of the OTAs have what they call “packages,” but they’re just bundles they’ve put together of travel components they handle, like flights, hotels, rental car, tickets, etc. They generally are not discounted very much (or at all) over and above buying the individual components, and most often you’ll find better discounts on rental cars , airfare  and Disney World tickets through other sources.

Generally speaking if you want an official Disney vacation package, and especially if you want to book one of the Disney Dining Plans, you’re best off booking with a Disney specialist full-service travel agency . You’ll get better service and a personal agent, for the same price as Disney charges.

If you belong to a membership organization like USAA or AARP, it may be worthwhile to check if they offer Walt Disney World vacation packages, and if so, whether they offer any discounts. However, don’t expect much service, and be aware that you may not get the best price in the long run. In our experience, the big membership organizations mostly employ “generalist” travel agents who often know little or nothing about Disney vacations and are frequently clueless about promotional packages and discount codes. You will usually have to do your own monitoring to make sure any better package offers that come out are applied to your booking. They almost never do this for you, unlike a Disney specialist agency .

It is especially important to buy trip insurance for a vacation package , because you have to pay the entire cost in advance and you won’t get a refund if you have to cancel right before your scheduled departure. With hundreds or even thousands of dollars at stake, it’s worth it to protect the investment.

It’s super-important to buy insurance if you will be visiting Walt Disney World on a package vacation during hurricane season (roughly June-November, with the peak period in August and September). Don’t underestimate the potential of hurricanes and tropical storms to create major problems even in an inland location like Orlando. Walt Disney World was directly affected by two hurricanes in 2004 (Frances and Jeanne), one in 2005 (Wilma), and most recently by Irma in 2017. Two hotels located on Disney property (but not operated by Disney) were virtually destroyed by the 2004 storms; one didn’t reopen until 2010!

While Disney’s own resorts weathered the hurricanes very well, guests were stuck in their rooms for up to 72 hours and many had major travel problems because airports were closed. Disney did waive “no-show” fees for a few dates, but those whose trips began before the specified dates (but whose travel plans overlapped with the hurricane) or just afterward were out of luck. Many people had similar problems with their airfares. The airlines allowed highly restrictive changes for certain dates without extra fees, but many of those who had to reschedule could not work within the airlines’ narrow rules and just had to suck up the extra cost.

Perhaps the most important coverage included in a trip insurance policy is trip cancellation and interruption insurance , which can protect your investment if you have to cancel your vacation at the last minute (or come home early) due to illness or injury. Depending on the policy, you may be covered if you cancel for other reasons, such as jury duty, terrorism at your destination, or even unemployment.

Emergency medical coverage and medical evacuation insurance are very important if you become ill or injured during the trip. Otherwise you’re on your own as far as booking very expensive last-minute airfare to get home. And if you’re too ill to travel by commercial jet, you may have to pay for treatment in Florida (which your personal insurance may or may not cover) or for evacuation on a medically-equipped jet, which is incredibly expensive. Check your existing medical insurance to see what, exactly is covered while traveling. You may be surprised at how much isn’t covered when you’re away from home.

Delayed baggage insurance will help you pay for replacement clothing if the airline sends your suitcase to Timbuktu and you need something to wear in the meantime. Supplemental baggage insurance will pay a predetermined amount if an airline loses your luggage completely. (Some higher-end credit cards provide extra baggage insurance, so check with your card issuer before paying extra for this coverage.)

Disney sells trip insurance, but for most trips, it’s more expensive than other plans, and usually more restrictive. Additionally, it only covers the cost of your Disney trip (including airfare), so if you do anything else on your trip, such as visit another theme park, buy tickets to an offsite event, etc., those aren’t covered. With a third-party policy, you can cover all potential costs of the entire trip, from any providers, with one policy. You can almost always get better insurance than Disney provides, and at better rates, by buying it elsewhere.

The one situation where Disney’s insurance is a good deal is for very expensive trips. Disney’s insurance is charged at a flat rate per adult (children are included as long as all adults buy the insurance), but third-party plans have a variable charge based on the total cost of your trip and the ages of the adults. The break-even point for a family with two 30-year old adults is roughly $8,000-$12,000 of total trip costs, depending on exactly which plan you choose and what coverages you want. So if you’re 60 years old, flying in from New Zealand and staying at the Grand Floridian in a concierge room for 10 nights, Disney’s travel insurance is an incredible steal. For most people, though, third-party insurance is a better deal.

Be aware that in most cases, trip insurance will provide slightly less coverage (usually by adding exclusions on pre-existing medical conditions) unless you buy it within about 14-21 days of paying your deposit on the vacation package. So be sure to purchase it right away, once you’ve committed to the trip.

Where to Buy Trip Insurance

  • A great place to comparison-shop for trip insurance is SquareMouth , where you can see side-by-side policy information and rates for major, reputable insurance companies. We have used SquareMouth ourselves to buy trip insurance and were especially impressed with their straightforward comparison system and robust filters to help you find the specific insurance features you need. We were also impressed with their “Zero Complaint Guarantee,” where they will go to bat with the insurance company on your behalf if you have a problem. Compare policies on SquareMouth .

Many seniors have proudly served their country. Disney World offers military discounts for senior veterans (and younger veterans, too) as a way to honor their service. If you are eligible, you can take advantage of these offers to save money on your visit to the parks.

Eligibility for Military Discounts:

Active or retired members of the U.S. military services, including the National Guard, Reservists, and the Commissioned Corps of the PHS and NOAA, qualify for these discounts. A valid military ID is required for purchase, ensuring these special offers extend to only those who’ve served. Spouses of eligible service members also qualify, offering families the chance to save on their magical experiences.

Example of Current Promotion:

An example of a current promotion for 2024 is the multi-day Disney Military Salute Ticket, offering options such as the 4-Day, 5-Day, or 6-Day tickets with Park Hopper benefits. Theme park reservations are required alongside these promotional tickets, ensuring each visit is as magical and organized as possible. Special pricing is also available for the Memory Maker, making it easier to capture and keep all those beautiful moments.

The Vacationeer can assist seniors who are veterans in taking advantage of these special rates and making their Disney vacation dreams come true. They can help you navigate the eligibility requirements and guide you through the process of purchasing tickets and making reservations.

Using AARP and AAA Memberships for Senior Disney Discounts

Memberships in well-known organizations can unlock doors to exclusive Disney World offers, providing members with various discounts and benefits that enhance the vacation experience.

  • AARP Offers : AARP membership now offers more specific benefits for Disney World visitors, including savings of up to $60 on Theme Park Tickets and up to $10 on Disney After Hours Special Events. These discounts provide AARP members with a direct pathway to enjoy the magic of Disney World at a more affordable cost. To take advantage of these offers, AARP members should follow the specified redemption process outlined by AARP, ensuring they can capitalize on these savings during their vacation.
  • AAA Benefits : Similarly, AAA is known to offer reduced rates on theme park ticket discounts to its members, and sometimes even on resort stays as well. These benefits can significantly reduce the financial burden of planning a trip to Disney World, making it easier for AAA members to experience the enchantment of the place without worrying too much about their budgets.

By leveraging these memberships, seniors have the opportunity to unlock valuable discounts and benefits, making their Disney World vacation both magical and more financially accessible.

Our Multi-Generational Family’s Disney World Experience

Our family’s trip to Disney World was a special experience that we shared across three generations. The group consisted of my “senior-aged” parents, my wife, our two kids, Ben and Ava, and myself. During our first visit, we stayed in a large family suite, but on our next trip, we decided to go for two rooms at the Art of Animation Resort, which was perfect for our family’s needs and provided comfort and a separate space for grandparents. Both options worked out fine.

The Vacationeer played a crucial role in our trip’s success, especially in finding us the best deals. While direct discounts for seniors were not available, their knowledge helped us save money and enjoy our vacation to the fullest. They advised us on room selections and planned our days at the park, which made our experience stress-free and enjoyable.

The trip was special because it brought different generations together. It was heartwarming to watch our kids experience the magic of Disney with their grandparents. The excitement of the rides and the fireworks at night created wonderful memories filled with happiness and laughter. It was more than just a vacation; it was an opportunity for our family to bond and create lasting memories together.

Essential Travel Tips for Seniors Visiting Disney World

The secret to enjoying a Disney World visit isn’t just finding discounts; it’s about making the visit enjoyable and comfortable. Here are some tips for seniors.

  • Visit During Off-Peak Times : Select dates outside peak seasons for a more relaxed visit with shorter lines and milder weather, enhancing the overall experience.
  • Explore All Hotel Options : Weigh the pros and cons of staying at a Disney resort versus off-property hotels, considering factors like convenience, cost, and amenities. Our Orlando Hotels with Shuttles to Disney World article has some suggestions, although my wife and I think staying on Disney property is the only way to go.
  • Stay Hydrated and Rested : The excitement of the parks can be overwhelming; prioritize hydration and rest, utilizing the many serene spots for breaks.
  • Use Disney Genie , Lightning Lane Passes , and DAS : These services streamline park navigation and attraction access, catering to a wide range of mobility and accessibility needs.

What are the best rides for seniors at Disney World?

Disney World is home to a wide array of attractions suitable for seniors. Classics like “It’s a Small World,” “The PeopleMover,” and “Spaceship Earth” provide gentle rides with minimal jostling. For those seeking a bit of adventure without the intensity, “Soarin'” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” offer immersive experiences with moderate excitement levels.

See our Best Magic Kingdom Rides , Best Animal Kingdom Rides , Best Epcot Rides , Best Hollywood Studios , Best Roller Coasters at Disney World , and Disney World for Adults for ideas.

Which Disney World resorts are most accommodating to seniors?

The right resort for seniors depends on their travel companions. Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort are excellent adult-focused Disney resorts for those traveling without children. Families on multi-generational trips might prefer resorts with family suites like Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. For budget-conscious seniors, Disney Value Resorts offer affordability, while Disney Moderate Resorts and Disney Deluxe Resorts provide a balance of amenities and luxury to suit different preferences. Note that many resorts are large campus-style facilities with multiple buildings spread over a large area. If mobility is a concern, consider resorts which are limited to one or two main buildings.

Does Disney World offer senior discounts?

While Disney World does not provide direct senior discounts, there are numerous ways to save through promotional offers, seasonal deals, and discounts available to the general public or through memberships like AARP and AAA. For military veterans, Disney offers special discounts as a token of appreciation for their service.

See our Cheapest Time to Go to Disney World , Cheapest Disney World Hotels , Disney World Cost Calculator , and Cost of a Disney Vacation for more.

Concluding Thoughts on Disney World Savings for Seniors

Disney World’s absence of direct senior discounts doesn’t dim the prospects for savings. Through extended stay offers, memberships in organizations like AARP and AAA, and military discounts, seniors can craft a magical and affordable visit. Our family’s multi-generational trip to Disney World, enriched by these strategies, stands as a testament to the park’s inclusive appeal, proving that thoughtful planning can unlock unforgettable experiences for visitors of all ages.

Disney World Senior Discount: Save on Magic!

Disney World is a popular vacation destination for people of all ages. While Disney does not offer specific senior discounts, there are still ways for seniors to save money on their Disney World adventure. By taking advantage of package deals, booking early, and using senior citizen discounts for other expenses in Orlando, seniors can enjoy the magic of Disney World at a discounted price.

Key Takeaways

  • Disney World does not offer specific senior discounts.
  • Seniors can save money by purchasing package deals and tickets for multiple days.
  • Booking early can result in lower ticket prices.
  • Using senior citizen discounts outside of Disney World can reduce overall expenses.
  • AARP members can save on Disney World tickets through Park Savers.

Package Deals and Discounts for Multiple Days

One way to save money on a Disney World trip is by purchasing package deals. Disney World often offers discounts when you buy multiple tickets, tickets for multiple days, or bundle your hotel and park tickets together. By taking advantage of these package deals, seniors can enjoy the magic of Disney World at a discounted rate. Additionally, purchasing tickets for multiple days can often result in lower per-day ticket prices, further saving seniors money on their Disney adventure.

Exploring Package Deals

When planning a trip to Disney World, seniors should consider exploring the available package deals to maximize their savings. These deals often include discounted tickets, as well as other perks such as dining plans or FastPass selections. By purchasing a package deal, seniors can unlock additional savings and enjoy a more seamless and convenient vacation experience.

Benefits of Multiple-Day Tickets

Purchasing tickets for multiple days is another cost-effective strategy for seniors visiting Disney World. Instead of buying single-day tickets, seniors can opt for multi-day tickets that offer discounted rates per day. This allows seniors to fully immerse themselves in the Disney experience, exploring the parks at a more leisurely pace while saving money on ticket prices.

Plan Your Visit with Flexibility

When considering package deals and multiple-day tickets, it’s important for seniors to plan their visit with flexibility in mind. Disney World offers a variety of ticket options, ranging from 1-day tickets to 10-day tickets. Seniors can choose the option that best suits their schedule and preferences, ensuring they have enough time to enjoy all the attractions and experiences Disney World has to offer.

Sample Disney World Package Deals for Seniors

These are just a few examples of the package deals available for seniors at Disney World. Prices may vary depending on the selected dates, accommodation options, and other factors. It’s recommended to visit the official Disney World website or consult with a travel agent for the most up-to-date package deals and pricing information.

Booking Early for Lower Rates

When planning a trip to Disney World, one of the key strategies for seniors to save money is by booking their reservations early. By securing their reservations well in advance, seniors can take advantage of lower rates and avoid the higher prices that often come with last-minute bookings.

Booking early allows seniors to have peace of mind knowing that their Disney World adventure is all set, while also benefiting from discounted ticket prices. This is especially true for trips scheduled during early December when ticket prices tend to be lower.

Seniors who plan to visit Disney World should aim to book their trip by early October, giving them ample time to secure the best rates before their travel dates. By doing so, they can maximize their savings and ensure a smooth and enjoyable vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth.

Why Book Early?

Booking early comes with several benefits for seniors visiting Disney World. Here are a few reasons why it’s advantageous:

  • Lower Ticket Prices: Booking early often means accessing discounted ticket prices, resulting in substantial savings for seniors.
  • More Availability: By booking in advance, seniors have a wider range of options when it comes to accommodations, dining reservations, and FastPass selections.
  • Reduced Stress: Planning ahead and securing reservations early alleviates the stress that comes with last-minute arrangements.

So, if you’re a senior planning a trip to Disney World, be sure to mark your calendar and start the booking process well in advance. By doing so, you’ll be able to take advantage of lower ticket prices and enjoy the magic of Disney without breaking the bank.

Using Senior Citizen Discounts Outside Disney World

While Disney itself may not offer senior discounts, seniors can still save money on other aspects of their trip by using their senior citizen discounts. Organizations like AARP offer savings and discounts on various services, including restaurants. Seniors can explore local places in Orlando that accept senior discounts by contacting their senior discounts provider or checking their website. By using these discounts outside of Disney World, seniors can reduce their overall expenses during their vacation.

Exploring these discounts can not only help seniors save money but also enhance their vacation experience by allowing them to enjoy more activities and amenities outside of Disney World.

With the right research and planning, seniors can make the most of their Disney World vacation by taking advantage of senior citizen discounts offered by various organizations and businesses in Orlando.

AARP and Disney World Tickets

If you’re an AARP member looking to save on Disney World tickets, you’re in luck! Although AARP doesn’t currently offer specific discounts on Disney World tickets, you can still take advantage of savings through Park Savers, a trusted ticket seller.

By purchasing your Disney World tickets through Park Savers as an AARP member, you can expect to save up to $80 per ticket. These tickets are exactly the same as those purchased directly from Disney, and they can be easily linked to your My Disney Experience account online.

With Park Savers, you can enjoy all the magic of Disney World at a discounted price, making your vacation even more memorable.

Disney World Ticket Prices for Seniors

Seniors visiting Walt Disney World may wonder about the ticket prices specifically for their age group. However, Disney World does not offer senior-specific ticket prices. Guests 10 and older are required to pay the same ticket prices, regardless of age. This policy ensures that all guests have full access to all attractions and entertainment within the parks. Therefore, the best way for seniors to get a discount is by purchasing tickets in advance through authorized sellers like Park Savers.

Tickets Prices at Disney World

When it comes to ticket prices at Disney World, guests aged 10 and older pay the same prices regardless of whether they are seniors or not. Disney World follows a unified pricing structure, ensuring that all visitors have equal access to the magical experiences and adventures that the parks offer. This means that seniors can enjoy the same attractions and entertainment as other guests, without any additional costs or barriers.

While senior-specific ticket prices are not available, it’s still possible for seniors to save money on their Disney World adventure. By purchasing tickets in advance through authorized sellers like Park Savers, seniors can access discounted ticket prices and enjoy the same magical experiences at a more budget-friendly rate. These authorized sellers often offer exclusive deals and promotions, making it a smart choice for seniors looking to save on their Disney World tickets.

By planning ahead and purchasing tickets in advance, seniors can not only secure their spot at Disney World but also take advantage of these discounted prices. This allows them to allocate their budget wisely and have more financial flexibility to make the most of their visit to the parks.

Authorized Ticket Sellers

One of the trusted authorized ticket sellers for Disney World is Park Savers. As an authorized seller, Park Savers offers discounted prices on Disney World tickets, including those for seniors. These tickets provide the same access to attractions and entertainment as tickets purchased directly from Disney. By purchasing through Park Savers, seniors can save money and enjoy a memorable experience at Disney World.

Benefits of Purchasing in Advance

There are several benefits to purchasing Disney World tickets in advance through authorized sellers like Park Savers:

  • Discounted prices: Seniors can enjoy reduced ticket prices compared to purchasing tickets on the day of their visit.
  • Convenience: Purchasing tickets in advance eliminates the need to wait in long lines at the ticket counters, allowing seniors to make the most of their time at the parks.
  • Flexibility: With their tickets already in hand, seniors have more flexibility in planning their visit and can easily reserve FastPasses and dining experiences in advance.

Overall, while Disney World does not offer senior-specific ticket prices, seniors can still save money on their visit by purchasing tickets in advance through authorized sellers like Park Savers. By taking advantage of discounted prices and planning their visit ahead of time, seniors can make their Disney World experience magical and cost-effective.

Park Hopper Option and Discounts

If seniors are interested in adding the Park Hopper Option to their Disney World tickets, additional fees apply. The Park Hopper Option allows guests to visit multiple parks in one day. The pricing for the Park Hopper Option varies depending on the number of days and ranges from $65 per ticket for 1-day tickets to $85 per ticket for 4 to 10-day tickets. These prices do not include taxes, which will be added at checkout. Seniors can still save money on these tickets by purchasing them in advance through authorized sellers like Park Savers.

Discounts for Other Groups at Disney World

While Disney World does not offer specific senior discounts, they do provide discounts for other groups. These include military discounts, annual passholder discounts, Disney Vacation Club (DVC) member discounts, and discounts for AAA members and Florida residents. Seniors who fall into any of these categories can take advantage of these discounts to save on their Disney World experience.

Military Discounts

Disney World offers special discounts for active and retired U.S. military personnel, including members of the National Guard and Reserves. These discounts can be applied to both park tickets and resort stays. To take advantage of these discounts, military personnel will need to provide valid military identification upon purchase.

Annual Passholder Discounts

Disney World annual passholders receive various perks and discounts, including discounts on park tickets, merchandise, dining, and special events. Seniors who plan to visit Disney World multiple times within a year can consider becoming annual passholders to enjoy these exclusive discounts.

Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Member Discounts

Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members, who are part of Disney’s timeshare program, can also access discounts on park tickets, resorts, dining, and merchandise. Seniors who are DVC members can take advantage of these discounts and enjoy the flexibility and benefits of vacationing at Disney World.

AAA Member Discounts

AAA members can enjoy discounts on Disney World tickets and vacation packages. By booking through AAA, seniors can save on their overall Disney World expenses. AAA members can also take advantage of additional perks such as free parking at Disney World parks.

Florida Resident Discounts

Florida residents are eligible for special discounts on Disney World tickets and annual passes. Senior residents of Florida can take advantage of these discounts by providing proof of Florida residency, such as a Florida driver’s license or utility bill, when purchasing their tickets online or at the park.

By taking advantage of these discounts for other groups, seniors can still save money and make their Disney World visit more affordable. Whether it’s through military discounts, annual passholder perks, DVC member privileges, AAA member savings, or Florida resident deals, there are options available to help seniors create lasting memories at Disney World without breaking the bank.

Tips for Getting the Best Deal

When planning a Disney World trip, seniors can take advantage of various strategies to ensure they get the best deal possible. By following these tips, seniors can save on their Disney adventure and make the most of their vacation experience.

1. Research and Compare Prices

Before booking any Disney World tickets or accommodations, it’s essential for seniors to research and compare prices from multiple websites and travel agents. This allows them to find the best deals and identify any special discounts or promotions that may be available. By exploring different options, seniors can ensure they are getting the most value for their money.

2. Take Advantage of Early Booking Discounts

Securing reservations well in advance can often result in significant savings. Disney World offers early booking discounts for tickets and hotels, allowing seniors to lock in lower rates. By planning their trip ahead of time and booking early, seniors can take advantage of these discounts and enjoy a more affordable Disney World experience.

3. Look for Package Deals

Seniors should keep an eye out for package deals that combine hotel accommodations and park tickets or offer discounts for multiple-day visits. These package deals can provide substantial savings compared to purchasing tickets and accommodations separately. By bundling their travel expenses, seniors can enjoy a more cost-effective Disney World vacation.

4. Bring Children’s Meals

When dining at Disney World, seniors can save money on food expenses by bringing children’s meals. Many quick-service restaurants offer children’s meal options at a lower price point, making it a budget-friendly choice. Seniors can still enjoy delicious meals while taking advantage of these cost-saving options.

5. Utilize Senior Citizen Discounts

In addition to discounts within Disney World, seniors can also save money on other expenses outside of the park by utilizing senior citizen discounts. A popular option is the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) membership, which offers various discounts on travel, accommodations, and dining. Seniors should explore these discounts to maximize their savings during their Disney World vacation.

By following these tips, seniors can make informed decisions, find the best deals, and save money on their Disney World adventure. It’s important to plan ahead, compare prices, and take advantage of available discounts to ensure a budget-friendly and enjoyable vacation.

One of the best ways for seniors to save on their Disney World trip is by purchasing package deals that offer discounted tickets for multiple days. By bundling hotel and park tickets together, seniors can enjoy significant savings. Additionally, booking their reservations early can result in lower ticket prices. Seniors should aim to secure their reservations well in advance, especially for trips during early December, to take advantage of lower rates.

While Disney itself may not offer senior discounts, seniors can still save money on other aspects of their trip by using their senior citizen discounts. Organizations like AARP provide savings and discounts on various services, including restaurants. Seniors can explore local places in Orlando that accept senior discounts by contacting their senior discounts provider or by checking their website. By utilizing these discounts outside of Disney World, seniors can reduce their overall expenses during their vacation.

All Current Disney World Discounts for 2024

aarp travel discounts disney world

Looking for the best discounts for Walt Disney World? This post offers money-saving details & dates on special offers for the general public, Disney+ subscribers, Annual Passholders, Visa cardholders, and Florida residents. It covers deals on resorts, theme park tickets, dining & more. ( Updated May 4, 2024 .)

We won’t bury the lede. The most popular special offer of the year has returned once again: Free Dining at Walt Disney World in 2024 . This is the second wave of the promo and is exclusively for Disney Visa cardholders, following the first wave for Disney+ subscribers. It runs from July through December 2024. It’s possible there will be a third wave for the general public, or another targeted offer for off-season dates missed by the first two waves.

Regardless, it’s already been a very good year for discounts now that ‘revenge travel’ is finished and Walt Disney World needs to incentivize tourists to return with better deals! Speaking of which, you can subscribe to our free email newsletter for instant alerts when new discounts are released. We’ve consistently notified newsletter subscribers on the days that deals go live early in the morning, which is often a significant head start before Disney makes an official announcement. That can make a huge  difference when booking–you’ll have better availability and won’t have to wait in a virtual queue or for hours on hold.

While Walt Disney World has gotten more aggressive with discounts in 2024, they’ve also become more strategic about ending them. It used to be the case that special offers were bookable until the immediately before the travel period started or ended. On some rare occasions, the timeframe was condensed, so you had until a certain date to book–but that was communicated in the deal terms. For example, a discount might encompass travel dates of August 14 through September 23, if booked by July 10.

However, that’s becoming less and less common. Instead of specifying an end date, many discounts simply state “Now Booking” and are open ended. Here’s what that looks like on the Disneyworld.com deal page:

aarp travel discounts disney world

This used to say “Book through: [date]” and is still formatted that way. “Book through: Now Booking” doesn’t exactly make sense, does it?

Anyway, the reason we’re mentioning this is because several special offers have been pulled early (by historical standards). This has caught many longtime Walt Disney World vacation planners by surprise, as they assumed they had longer to make a reservation, but instead, the deal vanished. In fact, several special offers with upcoming travel dates have vanished, and some have since been replaced with similar-but-inferior savings for the exact same dates.

We just wanted to give you a heads up about this practice, as Walt Disney World is doing it more and more. From our perspective, this actually isn’t the worst thing. Disney has also gotten very aggressive with deals, both the percentage savings and the eligible dates. For example, there were great deals that included the heart of Spring Break season–dates that would’ve been blocked out in the past.

The alternative is doing more targeted discounts that aren’t available to everyone or keeping the deal open, but having minimal availability. The current approach is understandably frustrating to those who thought they had more time, but those approaches would be even more frustrating (and time-wasting). For this and other reasons, we always advise booking early. You can always cancel later–but you cannot book a deal once it’s pulled or resort/room availability runs out!

aarp travel discounts disney world

In more positive news, Walt Disney World continues to release more and more special offers, putting the ‘discount drought’ of 2021-2022 further into the rearview mirror. Walt Disney World released nearly 20 different discounts over the course of last year, and although 2024 is young, it’s already ahead of trend. Most of these discounts have dropped earlier than normal by historical standards, and offer better savings than their counterparts from the last two years.

If weak discounting and late releases were a sign that pent-up demand had still been running strong, all of this is a sign that the opposite is no longer be true as of 2024. This suggests a corner is being turned and visitors are no longer going on spending sprees to make up for lost time.

Accordingly, there are better Walt Disney World discounts throughout 2024 than there have been at any point in the last 4 years, and we’re increasingly seeing Walt Disney World pull from the “2019 playbook” for special offers. Pent-up demand has fizzled out, and Walt Disney World is now experiencing its own slowdown. This is also now starting to be evident in crowd levels, and Walt Disney World is acting quickly to entice people to continue coming to the parks.

aarp travel discounts disney world

If you’re thinking about booking one of the many discounts that’s currently available for Walt Disney World, we cannot overemphasize the importance of pricing out multiple options. Don’t just look at the marketing and assume one special offer is best for you based upon its headline savings.

This has always been the case with Disney discounts, but it’s even truer than normal right now–and even with apples to apples comparisons. For example, we’ve found instances of “up to 30% off” room rates actually resulting in lower savings than “up to 25% off” room rates.

If you want to help determining what discounts are available for your travel dates and which resort will work best for your family, we recommend requesting a quote from Be Our Guest Vacations , a no-fee Authorized Disney Vacation Planner (they’re paid by Walt Disney World– so free to you! ).

Their travel agents will do the math for you, booking your vacation with the best-available special offer, and monitoring your package for future discounts that can be applied retroactively. Beyond that, they help take the stress out of planning and will assist with itineraries, dining reservations, and much more.

With that out of the way, here’s a rundown of what is available for the Annual Passholders, Floridians, active or retired US military personnel, Disney+ subscribers, and everyone else. We’ll start with a look at the newest ticket deals, followed by resort savings for the general public, followed by Florida resident and Annual Passholder rates:

aarp travel discounts disney world

Multi-Day ‘Magic’ Walt Disney World Ticket for Spring to Fall 2024 – The discounted 4-Park Magic Ticket includes one admission to each of the 4 theme parks on 4 separate days. Additionally, the 4-Park Magic Ticket does not require a theme park reservation to enter the Walt Disney World theme parks, but it is a date-based ticket with prices starting at $99 per day. The 4-Park Magic Ticket is valid for theme park admission now until September 22, 2024.

Florida Resident Ticket Deal at Disney World for Spring to Fall 2024 – This discounted 3-Day or 4-Day Discover Disney Ticket costs just $59 per day and is valid for Florida residents from now through September 28, 2024. Unlike the 4-Park Magic Ticket above, this one does require reservations. However, it’s a significantly deeper discount!

Stay Longer & Save Up to 30% Off Walt Disney World Resorts in 2024 – This is a HUGE deal, literally and figuratively, offering up to 30% off room rates now through July 7, 2024. The savings can be tremendous, depending upon your resort and room combo, and travel dates. This is the first time that Walt Disney World has released a general public discount offering this significant of savings since 2019.

Unfortunately, the discount has both been shortened and reduced. When first released, the savings were 5% higher (up to 35% off) for each tier and travel dates ran until October 3, 2024. Since then, the maximum savings have dropped by 5% per tier and the end date for travel has been shortened to July 7, 2024.

Stay Longer & Save Up to 30% Off at Walt Disney World Resorts – The good news is that, since shortening the above deal, Walt Disney World has released a new discount…for the exact same dates as it previously covered. The bad news is that it offers 5% off less than before.

Now you can save up to 30% on rooms at select Walt Disney World resort hotels when you stay 5 consecutive nights or longer—or save up to 25% on shorter stays. This offer is valid for stays most nights from July 8 to October 3, 2024.

As with the above and other deals, we’d recommend booking that ASAP if you want it. There’s nothing to see this special offer will stick around, or won’t be changed again.

2024 & 2025 Bounceback Deal Dates Added for Disney World – Bounceback discounts (also known as “Future Stay Offers”) are back! Bounce-back discounts are only available to travelers who are currently staying at one of Walt Disney World’s resort hotels to book during the duration of their trip.

In a normal year, this would run from January until August (or so) and be bookable for travel dates through the following December. In August, the bounceback would switch over to Free Dining for the following fall. Booking bouncebacks discounts is a great idea and efficient way to lock-in a future stay discount. See this for full dates & details, blockouts, how to book bouncebacks, etc .

DVC Members Friends & Family Save 40% Off Deluxe Villas at Disney World – Disney Vacation Club members  and  their friends & family can currently can book select villas, including ones at Disney’s Old Key West Resort or Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa—and save up to 40%!

You can book up to 3 additional rooms at this special rate so that friends and family members can join you when you visit. This special offer is for cash rentals only and is valid for stays most nights May 16 through October 3, 2024, and December 9 through December 21, 2024.

2025 Free Dining at Disney World for UK – The first Free Dining discount to be released for 2025, this offers UK and Ireland residents the ability to receive a Free Disney Dining Plan with their vacation package; available for arrival dates between January 7, 2025 and April 5, 2025; April 23, 2025 and October 2, 2025; October 18, 2025 and December 17, 2025.

PIN Code Discount at Walt Disney World for 2024 – Unfortunately, this is not a discount you can choose to book–Walt Disney World needs to choose you, sending out targeted emails to those who meet their criteria. But as we discuss in this ‘how-to’ post, you can increase your odds of receiving a coveted PIN code by doing certain things on DisneyWorld.com or signing up for emails from the Walt Disney Company family of brands.

Walt Disney World’s 2024 PIN or Unique Offer Code is valid for stays most nights:

  • June 30 to August 1, 2024
  • September 2-12, 2024
  • October 25 to November 3, 2024
  • December 8-25, 2024

aarp travel discounts disney world

Visa Cardmembers Deal for Spring & Summer 2024 – Disney Visa Cardholders enjoy “great rates” at Walt Disney World hotels for stays most nights now through June 29, 2024. There’s no percentage savings chart, so you have to price out specific resorts to see savings and do comparison shopping–but the deals are pretty good!

Save Up to 35% Off Resort Discount for APs in Spring & Summer 2024 – Save up to 35% off on room reservations for travel dates now through July 7, 2024. The lowest starting rates are a bit higher, which is due to the above discount encompassing winter off-season dates, and this one being for slightly higher (but still average) rate seasons.

Save Up to 30% Off WDW Resorts for Florida Residents – Florida residents can save up to 30% off rooms at select Disney Resort hotels, valid for stays the first few months of 2024. There’s a second deal that runs immediately after this through July 7, 2024 and is almost identical (aside from the dates).

Save Up to 35% Off Resort Discount for APs & FL Residents in Summer & Fall 2024   – Annual Passholders and Florida residents can save of up to 35% off most dates from July 8 through October 3, 2024. Like the above deals, this one is typically better for Annual Passholders than Floridians (maxes out at 35% off vs. 30% off).

aarp travel discounts disney world

Discounts for Swan & Dolphin at Disney World – Many Walt Disney World fans dismiss these three third party hotels out of hand, but the Swan, Dolphin, and Swan Reserve are located on-site and within walking or boat distance of both EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They also are eligible for Early Entry  and  Extended Evening Hours.

Aside from the Disney details and themes, these hotels offer better benefits and a superior location to most Value and Moderate Resorts. With prices starting at under $200 per night after discount, they are well worth considering.

2024 U.S. Military Salute Ticket & Room Discount at Walt Disney World – US military personnel can purchase promotional Walt Disney World theme park tickets at deeply discounted prices. Choose 4-Day, 5-Day or 6-Day Disney Military Salute Ticket (formerly the Disney Military Promotional Ticket) for visits through December 20, 2024.

Armed Forces Salute room-only discounts are also available at Walt Disney World. These are valid most nights through December 20, 2024. Precise percentage savings is not published online, and varies by season, resort popularity, and room category. Military personnel (active or retired) receive better room-only and ticket discounts than the general public, Floridians, or Annual Passholders. Call (407) 939-7830 for rates and to book. If you’re eligible for this deal, it’s your best bet. Note that blockout dates do apply around peak season dates.

Future Walt Disney World Discounts

aarp travel discounts disney world

What’s past is prologue. 

That expression holds true with Walt Disney World discounts, which play out in predictable patterns every year. Or at least, did until the closure and subsequent reopening. That threw a monkey wrench in things, as pent-up demand collided with closed resorts to create a room inventory imbalance that is just finally starting to be resolved.

Technically, Walt Disney World has already released a “full” lineup of discounts all the way through October 2024. General public and several affiliation discounts all dropped already–some multiple months earlier than normal.

With that said, we suspect that Walt Disney World is  not  done with the discounts dates beyond Summer 2024. It wouldn’t surprise us to see additional Annual Passholder, Florida Resident, and Disney+ subscriber deals–as well as another general public offer with a different twist.

aarp travel discounts disney world

Lately, Walt Disney World has been trying to incentivize planners to book early and save more. That has meant discounts are released earlier– and end earlier –than in the past. However, those dates haven’t been ‘done’ when the discount ends…they just release a new discount, often of a different nature or for a different group.

Suffice to say, we expect another discount to be released in mid-to-late June 2024. That should include more special offers for mid-October through December 25, 2024. (Current deals end on October 3, but we wouldn’t necessarily expect the next round to pick up on October 4. They probably will, but that’s the start of fall break season, so it’s possible that Disney skips a couple of weeks and offers discounts with travel dates starting later in October 2024.)

Whether these are general public special offers or just offers for Annual Passholders, Floridians, Disney+ subscribers, and/or Disney Visa cardholders remains to be seen and is likely dependent upon resort occupancy projections. Walt Disney World has been tinkering with more targeted discounts during the period of pent-up demand, so more of that wouldn’t be surprising–it really depends on whether that’s starting to slow or if travel is still booming.

While past is prologue, it’s also true that history doesn’t always repeat itself–sometimes it just rhymes.

Other Walt Disney World Discounts

Some of these room-only discounts can be converted to a package, which we do not recommend. The only difference with booking a package is that you’re locking yourself into paying more for park tickets and other vacation components, meaning you can’t use our Money-Saving Tips for Buying Walt Disney World Tickets or other strategies for saving.

Next, there’s the option of Renting DVC Points for Rooms at Walt Disney World . This allows you to rent use of Disney Vacation Club accommodations from a member or business. DVC rental is safe, easy, and cheaper than standard hotel reservations. It’s also a great way to “test drive” the accommodations before buying a DVC membership.

In addition to the aforementioned general public discounts, one popular under-the-radar discount among Walt Disney World fans is the PIN or Unique Offer Code targeted deal. If you’re wondering what a PIN code is and how to get one, read this . Currently, the best available PIN code offer is the same as the summer and early fall AP discount.

Another way to score deep discounts on accommodations is via Hotwire & Priceline Express Deals for Walt Disney World .  These are opaque deals, meaning you can’t see the name of the hotel prior to booking, but it’s very easy to “reverse engineer” the hotel with clues provided in the listing plus good ole fashioned internet sleuthing. These have  finally  started to return as of Spring 2024–for the first time in several years!

aarp travel discounts disney world

Finally, some words of warning and generalized commentary. In addition to the standard varying rates of the discount depending on precise travel dates, some room-only discounts have incredibly limited availability, especially room-only offers with peak travel dates. Don’t be surprised if you search for an otherwise qualifying hotel and are unable to book the discount due to zero availability.

In our searches, there are a number of situations close to holidays where these “discounts” would actually cost more, due to zero availability in standard rooms, meaning you have to upgrade to a room with a view, suite, or Club Level room. In other situations, there’s just nothing, period, so Disney’s site recommends upgrading resorts. (Such helpful suggestions for “saving” money!)

On the other hand, the discounts for off-season travel dates look pretty good in terms of availability. The additional upside to those dates is that you can choose off-season times to visit when crowds are lower and rack rates are lower, which means you’ll pay even less.

For more details on the pros and cons of taking advantage of a room-only discount, read our Room-Only Discounts at Walt Disney World post. This is our favorite discount because it’s straightforward and tends to offer the best value for us, and many other Walt Disney World regulars are fans of it for this same reason. However, if you’re a first-timer visitor to WDW, there’s a good chance a better, more inclusive offer will work better for you.

aarp travel discounts disney world

Typically, the best discounts are offered in August and September, and January and February. The downside to the former is that this is the heart of tropical storm season (see our Storm Season at Disney World Survival Guide for more info), and it’s still fairly hot and humid during the fall in Florida. These months are arguably the worst of the year in terms of weather, and that’s assuming you don’t have to deal with any hurricanes or intense tropical storms.

The downside to the latter is that January and February are colder. However, both sets of months are typically among the least crowded times of the year to visit Walt Disney World. (Although that’s less true about the winter with each passing year.) Suffice to say, it’s a trade-off for lower prices and crowds.

As always, keep in mind that Walt Disney World does not offer discounts out of generosity. Discounts are offered because Disney wants to hit a target occupancy rate for its hotels–they are a way to entice people who otherwise might not do so to book a trip.

Disney only offers discounts to the extent that are needed to hit projected target occupancy rates. Once those targets are reached, discounts are not offered. Hence the lack of availability for some resorts and some room categories in any promotion.

This is all a long-winded way of saying that flexibility is important when it comes to Walt Disney World discounts, especially Free Dining. If you want to save the most money, there’s a decent chance you will need to choose your resort hotel based upon discount availability. If you’re able to be flexible on travel dates, that’s even better!

Yesterday Disney reported very disappointing earnings. No surprise to me since Disney basically gives away tickets to Florida residents and charges out state residents far more. Florida residents also receive discounts to restaurants while out of state tourists have to spend full price at restaurants. Disney announced that they will be cutting back on new movies and tv series so why should people subscribe to Disney+ ? Is Iger also going to cut down on the amount of food and drinks tourists receive? This is what happens when you have a former weatherman run Disney!

' src=

Disney does not “give away” tickets to residents. The least expensive, most restricted pass is over $400. They go all the way up to several thousand dollars. Plus, people who are staying in the resorts don’t have to make reservations anymore for the parks, whereas the passholders still have to make reservations after all this time. Many passholders do not get early entry whereas visitors staying in the hotels do. Also, as with any organization, or park in any state the state knows they can be guaranteed income and add-ons for purchasing food, and purchasing special event tickets merchandise and that helps to continue to keep their cash flow flowing from their residents. There’s nothing wrong with locals from any state they live in getting a perk or two.

' src=

When I checked yesterday my dates (late November early December) at Pop are not available. Could this be a sign they are holding for a discount?

' src=

We always go the week after Thanksgiving but this year we decided to wait until the 7th of January to the 17th to go. Do you think there will be any discounts coming up for that date? Also Christmas is my favorite time to go, do they have any of the decorations up during that time. Thanks a bunch! Tina White

' src=

We have our trip booked Oct 6-12… hilariously tragic for us that it seems like every good discount is ending just days before we arrive LOL!

How to save on cruises with AARP Travel

Donna Heiderstadt

Savings-conscious consumers have long gravitated toward AARP. The advocacy organization for older Americans negotiates discounts on everything from mobile phone plans and drug prescriptions to restaurants, hotels and, yes, cruises. While "older" generally connotes seniors ages 65 and above, AARP membership is open to Americans who are considerably younger. But is it worth subscribing if you're looking to save money on your next cruise?

I remember feeling insulted when right before my 50th birthday I received an invitation by mail to join AARP. "I'm nowhere near retirement," I thought as I crumpled it, mumbled something about ageism and tossed it in the trash. This was years after AARP (pronounced A-A-R-P with the letters sounded out) officially changed its name to its acronym. It was founded in 1958 as the American Association of Retired Persons, but as leading-edge baby boomers began retiring in their 50s, AARP started to engage with them to encourage younger membership.

For cruise news, reviews and tips, sign up for TPG's cruise newsletter .

More than a decade later I'm still not retired, but this assignment gave me an excuse to finally join AARP. When I did, I took a look at the perks of membership to see which benefits would be useful to my travel plans. Here's what I learned about how to save on cruises with AARP Travel.

You don't have to be retired or age 50-plus to join AARP

aarp travel discounts disney world

You do need to be age 50 or older to reap full benefits, but Americans ages 18 to 49 can also join AARP. Folks under 50 can receive most member benefits, aside from those restricted by law or contract, such as certain insurance products.

To sign up, simply visit AARP.org and click "Join Now." Membership is $16 per year, although rates can be as low as $9 per year if you sign up for a multiyear membership term.

When you join, you'll also get a second free membership for another adult in your household, as well as a monthly AARP Bulletin and the bimonthly AARP The Magazine.

You can book cruise travel via the AARP Travel Center Powered by Expedia

The booking engine that offers member discounts for cruises, as well as hotels and rental cars, is the AARP Travel Center Powered by Expedia . This is where you can search for ocean or river cruises, just as you would on Expedia, with an added bonus: AARP members can receive up to $100 onboard credit on more than 15 cruise lines and up to $200 onboard credit on select Holland America Line cruises.

You can search for a cruise by using a drop-down menu of almost two dozen destinations (you have to pick one to search) and then plugging in your desired travel dates.

The ocean cruise options are fairly extensive but not deeply discounted

aarp travel discounts disney world

Since Expedia powers the AARP Travel Center, it offers access to an extensive range of cruises to global destinations, from a three-night Caribbean sailing from Miami on Norwegian Sky to an 80-night world cruise on Cunard 's Queen Victoria. In all, I found thousands of sailings offered by most major cruise lines through mid-2025.

When I searched for Caribbean cruises during the period from Jan. 1 to April 30, 2024, the booking engine returned more than 800 options offered by 13 cruise lines. When I narrowed my search to just premium and luxury cruise lines, I saw a seven-night Caribbean itinerary from Miami on Oceania 's new cruise ship Vista in mid-February priced at $2,599 per person for a balcony cabin with bonus shore excursion, beverage, specialty dining and Wi-Fi inclusions. This Western Caribbean itinerary calls on Cozumel, Mexico; Roatan, Honduras; Costa Maya, Mexico; and Harvest Caye, Belize, with two sea days.

That seemed like a terrific deal, but when I checked Oceania's website, I found the same price with all the included bonuses. The only difference was the "up to $100" onboard credit available with AARP membership. In this case, the credit was the full $100 because the cruise fare was more than $2,000. Cruises priced below $2,000 per person get a $50 credit.

Related: The 5 best destinations you can visit on an Oceania Cruises ship

Other deals in the luxury category included a seven-night Caribbean cruise in late February 2024 in a verandah suite aboard Seabourn Ovation for $3,249 per person. The cruise departs from St. Maarten and calls on the British Virgin Islands, St. Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, Guadeloupe and Martinique before ending in Barbados. On Seabourn 's website, verandah suites for this itinerary started at $3,419 per person. So, the AARP price did offer a savings of $150 per person — plus the $100 onboard credit.

Budget-minded cruisers can also find plenty of three-night sailings for $300 per person or less (for an inside or ocean-view cabin on Norwegian Sky with free drinks, dining and excursion credits) and even some seven-night sailings for under $500 per person (for an inside cabin on Royal Caribbean , MSC Cruises and Princess Cruises ships). All were similar to what's available on the cruise lines' websites, but with AARP qualified for an onboard credit of $50.

Cruisers who prefer Holland America also have plenty of choices. They can, for example, book a seven-night Caribbean cruise from Fort Lauderdale in early March 2024 aboard Nieuw Statendam that visits Jamaica; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Cozumel; and Half Moon Cay, Bahamas. The price? An inside cabin was priced at $614 per person (comparable to what HAL offers on its website) and came with a $50 onboard credit.

What I discovered is that the $200 onboard credit deal with AARP links directly to Holland America's website for booking and is valid only for balcony and suite bookings on select cruises lasting 10 days or more.

AARP members can also book expedition cruises , such as 12-night Antarctic Explorer itineraries on Viking Octantis and Viking Polaris, via the AARP Travel Center. These are priced at $11,995 per person (the same price as on Viking's website) with just a $25 deposit. Again, the only savings is the $100 onboard credit.

Basically, the AARP Travel Center seems to be an expedient way to compare ocean cruise deals as they are offered by individual cruise lines via the booking engine Expedia — with the chance of scoring a slightly discounted cruise fare and the added bonus of a $50, $100 or $200 onboard credit, depending on the cruise booked.

AARP Travel Center has offers from 4 major river cruise lines

aarp travel discounts disney world

The AARP Travel Center also allows you to search and compare river cruises by searching the destination "Europe" and a specific date range.

A search for European river cruises in 2024 and 2025 turned up hundreds of options on river ships operated by AmaWaterways, Avalon Waterways, Uniworld River Cruises and Viking. Itineraries ranged from a seven-night Rhine River cruise from Amsterdam to Basel, Switzerland, in late March 2024 aboard Avalon Panorama for $1,949 per person to several sailings of 20 nights or more priced at $15,000 per person and above for suite accommodations.

There were also more than a dozen Viking itineraries on the Rhine in March and early April 2024 for $1,999 per person, which is the same price featured on Viking's website. Uniworld prices start at $2,999 per person, also comparable to its website, while AmaWaterways ' value fares ($1,919 to $2,159 per person for Rhine cruises) all matched the cruise line's pricing — and were in February 2024. Brrr!

A search for river cruises in Asia in 2024 and 2025 turned up more than 300 sailings on AmaWaterways, Avalon Waterways and Uniworld, most 12 to 14 nights in length with prices ranging from $6,999 to $8,399 per person.

Once again, the AARP Travel Center seems to be an efficient aggregator, pulling deals from Expedia's booking engine. River cruise fares also are eligible for a $50 or $100 onboard credit.

River cruise fans can find additional members-only deals beyond onboard credit

AARP members also have access to specific deals on river cruises offered by AARP-preferred travel providers.

Offers include saving up to $100 per person on river cruises booked via Grand European Travel. These are aboard luxury river cruise ships in Europe operated by Uniworld, and the $100 discount per person is off prices comparable to those listed when booking directly with Uniworld.

For example, the eight-day Enchanting Danube itinerary in March and April 2024 aboard S.S. Maria Theresa starts at $3,299 per person, the same as on Uniworld's website. The total savings? A $100 per person discount if booked with Grand European Travel.

Another savings opportunity is $50 off per person on Collette cruisetours . Cruise options here are more limited and are mostly on Amadeus River Cruises ships on the Rhine and Danube, plus some small-ship coastal cruising in Croatia and tours in Egypt featuring a four-night cruise.

Members-only benefits also include 5% off select rail-and-cruise vacations with Vacations by Rail . The discount is offered on a variety of itineraries in Europe that combine rail travel with cruises aboard river ships operated by CroisiEurope and Amadeus. The catch: All tours begin in London (Vacations by Rail's parent company is British), which can be a detour for American travelers because it's simpler to arrive by air in Amsterdam, Basel, Budapest or Bordeaux, France, where these cruises begin.

Some guided tours are 12 days, with four days of rail travel and hotel stays in advance of a seven-night cruise. Reviews, however, mention the hassle of getting luggage on and off trains by yourself (there are no porters).

Related: Best cruises for seniors who love to travel by sea

The cost of the four-day rail/hotel portion of Vacation by Rail's 12-day Glacier Express & the Majestic Rhine cruise-and-rail tour also seems to account for about half of the overall cost for one-third of the days. The price is $5,095 per person for a June 2024 package, but the seven-night Classical Rhine itinerary on board MS Amadeus Star from Basel to Amsterdam that is included can be booked on the Amadeus website for about $2,600 per person on dates in May and July or $1,913 per person in April.

Both the agility required for train travel and the cost of the four-day rail tour are something to consider when weighing the value of a 5% discount.

Discounted cruise line gift cards are available to AARP Rewards members

Members who sign up for AARP Rewards — which lets you earn points by taking knowledge-boosting quizzes or using fitness-tracking or money-crunching tools — can also purchase gift cards for five cruise lines at a 10% discount. Applicable lines include Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Holland America, Princess and Royal Caribbean.

AARP Rewards members have two options: $100 gift cards priced at $90 ($92 for Princess) and $500 gift cards priced at $450 ($460 for Princess). You can use these gift cards to pay for a portion of your cruise fare or, on some lines, onboard expenses.

Card availability and amounts may change at any time. You can purchase a maximum of 25 gift cards each month.

You can find deals for pre- or post-cruise hotel stays and get a discount on British Airways

aarp travel discounts disney world

You might save the most money by booking a pre- or post-cruise hotel stay with one of AARP Travel Center's dozens of hotel partners, most of which offer a 10% discount off the best available nightly rate. The list includes Hilton, InterContinental, Radisson, Holiday Inn, Best Western, Embassy Suites, Wyndham, Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, Kimpton and Hotel Indigo.

AARP also has partnered with British Airways. Members save $65 off World Traveller (economy) and World Traveller Plus (premium economy) or $200 off Club World (business class) fares when they purchase round-trip transatlantic tickets online to more than 130 destinations, including Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Restrictions do apply.

You can save money with AARP, but you should also do your homework

The AARP Travel Center seems to be a terrific place to compare fares when deciding which cruise line and month best suits your budget. Whether you eventually book via AARP, the cruise line's website or elsewhere depends on your preference. (Remember, travel agents and advisers often have deals with extras that websites don't.)

With similar pricing, it probably depends on whether the onboard credit is a better bonus than perks offered elsewhere.

Signing up for email offers from your preferred cruise line and checking its "deals" or "offers" tab on a regular basis might be your best bet for scoring a top deal. However, there's no doubt that AARP's $9 to $16 annual membership fee quickly pays for itself with even a one-time onboard credit — and there is a potential for additional savings. No matter your age, it can't hurt to sign up.

The Most Unique and Luxurious Disney World Hotels

W alt Disney World can be a daunting trip — thousands of rowdy kids, endless miles to walk, humid Florida weather — but it’s a family favorite vacation for a reason. Adults and grandkids alike give into the magic of the theme park resort. Of course, it’s all the more enjoyable when you have luxury accommodations to escape to when the Disney of it all gets to be too much.

Luckily, Walt Disney World has no shortage of incredible hotels. In fact, they offer some of the most unique lodging options you can find in the state, including Polynesian-inspired bungalows and rooms that overlook a savanna with giraffes. 

While building your Disney World budget and checking travel websites , you'll find so many options it can be overwhelming. So, to make your life easier, we pulled together this list of some of the most luxurious, incredible hotels you can find in the Disney World area.

Animal Kingdom Lodge

Animal Kingdom Lodge (adjacent, naturally, to Animal Kingdom) is easily one of the most unique accommodations you’ll find in Florida. The rooms at this African-themed resort hotel overlook four savannas that boast over 200 exotic animals. Visitors can sit on their balcony and admire zebras, giraffes, flamingos, gazelles, and more. 

This mini safari experience is what makes Animal Kingdom Lodge most special, but it also is home to fine dining (the bread service at Sanaa, which features African foods with an Indian twist, regularly gets raves) and one of the largest collections of African art in the United States. If you choose to stay here, you may find yourself too busy to even make it into the parks.

Grand Floridian Resort and Spa

Grand Floridian Resort and Spa isn’t just one of Walt Disney World’s flagship hotels, it’s also considered one of the most luxurious accommodations on the property. It’s designed to look like a Victorian-era beach resort, complete with beautiful, spacious rooms and a particularly grand lobby (think gleaming white marble with plenty of greenery and natural light). It also plays host to one of the top-rated restaurants in Disney: Victoria & Albert’s, a fine dining establishment with New American food on the menu.

But for all its grandeur, many would argue the best part about the Grand Floridian is its location. It’s right by Magic Kingdom, meaning it’s directly on the monorail line, so it'll take just a few minutes to get to Walt Disney World’s most beloved park. Plus, you’ll get stunning views of Cinderella’s Castle from the hotel.

Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort

When you hear Four Seasons , the phrase “luxury” immediately jumps to mind. This five-star hotel offers large, beautiful suites, attentive service, a golf course, and a water park with a lazy river. There’s even a top-rated spa and an adults-only pool for when you need a break from all the kids at Disney World (and a camp section for them, too!). Finish off your day with a meal at the rooftop steakhouse. It has an amazing view of the fireworks at Walt Disney World!

Of course, many visitors to Disney World balk at the idea of staying “off property,” but the Four Seasons isn’t technically off-property. You’re right by all the attractions, and the Four Seasons still offers the perks granted to guests staying on Disney property, like access to extended theme park hours.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

You don’t have to jet off to exotic locales to get a proper waterfront bungalow experience. Instead, you can get a taste of what it’s like to vacation on a tropical island with a stay at the Polynesian Village Resort . Sure, it’s on a lake and not the ocean, but there are still water views, palm trees, and a white sand beach. 

While there are many regular hotel room options, the most luxurious choice here is one of the bungalows. These standalone structures sit right over the water and feature a private deck with a plunge pool. Plus, you get a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and other amenities.

This hotel also scores points thanks to location (right off the monorail line to Magic Kingdom, offering ease of travel and Cinderella Castle Views), the beautiful Polynesian-inspired theming, and Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, a unique tiki bar with creative cocktails that have incredibly unusual presentations. 

Waldorf Astoria Orlando

Much like the Four Seasons, the name Waldorf Astoria is synonymous with opulence. That’s just what you get with the five-star Orlando outpost of this high-end hotel chain. The Waldorf Astoria features spacious suites that combine modern amenities with elegant decor, skilled hospitality professionals, a top-rated golf course, and a luxury spa.

The pool area is the perfect place to relax — there are private cabanas you can rent and even a lazy river — and you’ll find multiple upscale dining options as well. While you won’t get some of the perks of staying on Disney property, it’s incredibly close to the parks and will undeniably give you a more extravagant hotel stay.

Copper Creek Villas and Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Sure, many people don’t imagine staying in a rustic cabin for the duration of their Disney stay. But the Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge are worth it. The waterfront cabins at this Pacific Northwest-inspired resort aren’t just spacious, private, and beautiful; they also boast wraparound porches with private plunge pools and incredible lake views. It’s the definition of serenity.

It can be hard to tear yourself away from your secluded luxury cabin, but if you want to, you have access to the rest of the Wilderness Lodge, which has plenty of dining options, multiple pools, and art from the Pacific Northwest. You also have easy ferry access to Magic Kingdom.

Disney’s Contemporary Resort

This particular resort isn’t for everyone: It was designed to be sleek, bare, and ultramodern, which may not offer the warmth a Disney guest would expect. However, the Contemporary Resort is special because of its proximity to Magic Kingdom. You can actually get rooms in the Bay Lake Tower that directly overlook the theme park, a special treat for a Disney fan. The fireworks are particularly stunning from here!

The Contemporary Resort is also unusual because the monorail runs directly through it. It’s a fun, unique feature that makes it easy to get to Magic Kingdom or go resort hopping to the Polynesian or the Grand Floridian. And of course, it has multiple pools, several great dining options, and a white sand beach.

Disney’s Riviera Resort

The Riviera is one of the newest additions to Disney World. As you may have guessed from the name, it’s inspired by the European Riviera, decorated to evoke the Mediterranean. It’s a beautiful, elegant resort, and the rooms are tasteful and spacious. There are multiple pools as well as a rooftop restaurant with amazing views and French and Italian cuisine.

It all makes for a lovely, serene stay, although many visitors will note the best part may be how you can leave the Riviera: It has access to Disney World’s newest transportation system, the Disney Skyliner. This gondola system brings you to Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and several other hotels. It’s much quicker than the buses (you don’t have to wait for them to arrive) and it’s essentially a ride itself, as you soar through the air over Disney World.
