So you wanna visit Disney, but you want to make sure you have the best price. Join the Club, lol. I think we ALL want to score a Disney Discount Deal.
Hey Fans, I think this is the MOST POPULAR question I get. How to get a Disney Deal? When can I get a Disney Discount. If I book NOW, can you get me a Deal later? If I book with you, can I still get a Discount? Does this sound familiar? Does this sound like you? READ on to learn about Disney Deals and Discounts.
As of recent, there sadly has been a trend that on deal/discount day, people who booked early (BEFORE ANY PRICE INCREASE) already had the better price. So if I had applied the deal that everyone was so desperate for, they would have been paying more. Its true!! So, in my opinion, the BEST deal you can count on is booking NOW, early…as soon as you are ready. Disney usually raises rates during the beginning of the year, but they can and do raise them anytime, often without warning. Therefor waiting for a discount is not the smartest move. So, if you want to save on a Disney Vacation, book NOW before prices go up. This just might be the ONLY way you will secure a lower price.
SO you are booked and Disney just released a Deal – YAY!! OR is it?? Often they have a big chuck of available dates, like Jan-April. Then they will list all but like 3-5 resorts. So you are thinking, YAY, this is me. I am booked within the dates and at an included resort, I am so gonna save. NOT the case. Deals and Discounts are essentially for resorts and dates that need help booking. And, of course, the TV commercials, Facebook ads, etc don’t exactly tell you that or that there is a limited amount of availability. They also don’t boldly advertise that the deal could only be for Theme Park View or Club Level at certain resorts. And they for sure don’t tell you that there is like only 1 room at your resort, for a mystery set of dates that was actually discounted. BUT it’s not all bad, some resorts seem to always score a deal and I often suggest those when people have a limited budget. Just NOTE: It might not happen for you, especially if staying at the most popular resort so BOOK EARLY to save.
Some resorts are just larger with more rooms, are less popular or happen to have more variety of room categories and tend to score a deal more than others. Some are because you couldn’t pay me to stay there and some, its just the higher room category. I can think of one resort (in particular) that if its lands on a deal, you can save hundreds on one of the most popular rooms/views on property. This is a TOTAL score BUT you have to be willing to pay more to upgrade (which is also common). So deal doesn’t always mean less or cheaper. Sometimes it does. I often safe people $200-300 PER room, but like I said, its tends to happen at the same few resorts. So, if I have clients determined to score a deal, these are things I mention and help with.
So the take away is this…Book what you want, what you can/want to afford. And Book EARLY. Book dates that work for you. Don’t count on a deal to make your vacation magical. But understand that if a deal does come out, I am up at 4am that morning trying to score it for you. I want to get that deal for you before they are gone. But also know that you might have to upgrade for a deal. You might have to add Park Hoppers or add 1 more park day. Are you willing to do this? These are things I ask, so on that fateful morning…I am ready to be the Most Magical Travel Agent EVER. I want to be that hero, I want to save you money. Booking with me can save you money, not just because I scored you a deal, but because I know my stuff. And I saved you time by doing all the work BUT I also prevented you from spending funds where they didn’t need to be spent.
