More 2024 Deals

There are even more offers available for those looking to book their Walt Disney World vacation. Guests can save up to 35% at select Disney Resort hotels when you stay 5 nights or longer, most nights March 25 through Oct. 3, 2024.

Disney Resort Benefits

Pool and Hotel

Disney Resort hotel guests can receive great benefits, including complimentary transportation and early theme park entry every day. And with a Disney Resort hotel reservation, guests can make dining reservations for their entire length of stay (for up to a 10-night stay) up to 60 days in advance of their arrival! This helps simplify vacation planning, by making all your reservations on the same day, rather than checking availability day after day.

At select Disney Resort hotels, you can also catch an outdoor Movie Under the Stars or take part in fun recreational activities. You may even get a surprise visit from a Disney character or two!


Disney World Castle at night

This is an incredible offer to save money on dining for Disney+ subscribers planning a Walt Disney World vacation this summer. By booking a non-discounted 4-night/4-day room and ticket package at a WDW resort hotel, Disney+ users can receive a free standard or quick service Disney Dining Plan during most dates July 1, 2024 through September 30, 2024.

The dining plan guests receive will depend on whether they book a Value, Moderate or Deluxe resort. But in any case, this represents a major discount off the regular price of adding a dining plan to a Walt Disney World package. As Disney continues to find synergies across its streaming and parks businesses, offers like this free dining plan for Disney+ subscribers show the company incentivizing guests to engage with multiple Disney products and services. This is certainly a win-win for Disney fans looking to save money on their next Walt Disney World getaway!
