How to Save on a Walt Disney World Vacation

Choose a Value Resort for More Savings
The Disney World Resort offers four types of accommodations: value, moderate, deluxe and deluxe villas. Value resorts, including All Star Movies, All Star Sports, All Star Music and Pop Century, feature gigantic Disney icons and basic, but comfortable, hotel rooms. These hotels offer food courts, pool bars, playgrounds, gift shops, laundry facilities and themed pool areas, but do not offer pool slides or hot tubs. Kids will enjoy the arcades and the larger-than-life Disney characters found in the courtyards at the value resorts. If a pool slide is important to your family, a moderate resort may be a better choice. Moderate resorts offer more upscale pool areas at a slightly higher cost. Moderate, deluxe and deluxe villa hotels feature larger rooms, at least one full-service restaurant and hot tubs, in addition to the amenities provided at the value resorts.
Search for Discount Codes
During off-peak times, Walt Disney World may offer discounted rooms. Discount codes can save you as much as 20 to 40 percent off the rack rate, or full price, of a room, depending on the season. In addition to hotel room discounts, Disney World also offers free dining packages occasionally. To take advantage of a free dining package, you must pay the rack rate for the room and buy a theme park ticket. Discount codes can be found in local newspapers or on the Walt Disney World website.
Take Advantage of Airline Sales
Most of the major airfare websites will inform you of special deals if you sign up for email notifications. Choose several airports as your preferred airports when signing up for these specials. If you are willing to bypass your local airport and drive an hour or two to another airport, you may be able to save as much as $50 to $150 per ticket.
If you plan to visit Orlando during peak times of the year, including early summer, Christmas or Easter, it is important to book a flight as soon as the airlines release rates. Although it can be possible to find a better rate if you wait to book when visiting at other times of the year, rates during peak times rarely go down after they are first released.
Finding a good deal is part of the fun of planning a Walt Disney World trip. By cutting costs in the major categories, you'll have plenty of money left over to splurge on a round of miniature golf or a character dinner with Cinderella.
