Future Disney World promotions and special offers

Curious to see what future discounts Disney might release? You can check out our list of historical discounts. While not perfect, it will give you an idea of when you might expect to see discounts released for your travel dates.

Popular promotions that are no longer available

The following promotions were offered (and were also extremely popular) in the past, but have yet to return as available options. We will let you know if or when they do.

Play Stay Dine (last offered in 2019)

Unlike Free Dining (which only discounts the Dining Plan portion of your package) or a general percentage off discount (which only discounts the resort room potion of your stay, whether it is a room-only reservation or a vacation package), Play Stay Dine provided a discount on all 3 components of your trip.

The total percentage off for each component wasn’t known, but most people found this discount didn’t usually save as much money as Free Dining; however, it can provide a nice savings if you were already planning on purchasing the Disney Dining Plan.

Types of Disney World discounts and promotions

Confused over what everything means? Here’s some terminology that might help:

  • Rack rate – the standard room rate without any discount added
  • Room-only reservation – a reservation that is only for your room and includes no tickets or Disney Dining Plan
  • Vacation Package – a reservation that includes a room plus tickets OR a room plus tickets and the Disney Dining Plan
  • Ticketless Package – a reservation that includes a resort room and the Disney Dining Plan and no tickets. This type of reservation can only be booked by a travel agent or by phone.

Note: Room-only reservations and vacation packages have different deposit and cancellation polices, so be sure to check those out before you book.

Learn the basics about Disney World promotions and special offers

Some general things to know about Disney World discounts:

  • Disney’s “rack rates” (their standard room rates) are released during the summer for the following year and, unlike most hotels, don’t change in price because of occupancy rates once they are published. The prices won’t go up from the day they are published but they also won’t go down – unless a discount is released.
  • Discounts aren’t automatically added. Whether you are booking a new trip or you already have a vacation planned, make sure available discounts get applied. Disney isn’t going to automatically add it for you.
  • In general, vacation packages (which include a room, tickets, and an optional Disney Dining Plan) don’t save you money but they are convenient. Disney bundles the popular components together to make it easier on you, not to save you some cash.
  • Where to find current discounts. Current Disney World offers can be found at a link for special offers.
  • You can only use 1 discount at a time. For example, if you get Free Dining, you can’t also get a discount on your hotel room.
  • You can book your trip before discounts come out. If a discount is released after your trip is booked, the discount can be applied to your existing reservation. However, for every promotion there are only a certain number of available rooms and room types at each eligible resort that can be booked at the discounted price. Once they have reached that number of bookings, that’s it. That’s why it is important that you either modify your reservation online (preferred method) or call as soon as possible after a discount is released.
  • Many discounts are released before the phone lines open. However, most reservations can be modified online as soon as the discount is released, so those that choose to do that get a jump on those that wait to call.
  • There are blackout dates. For instance, if a fall promotion is announced, Thanksgiving week will often be blacked out. This is true for all major U.S. holidays.
  • Deluxe Resorts receive the biggest discounts. When a promotion is announced, such as 10-25% off rooms, the lower percentage (10%) usually applies to Value Resorts while the larger percentage (25%) usually applies to Deluxe Resorts.

How to get a discount on your Disney World trip

How to find Special Offers and Promotions when initially booking your trip

If you aren’t sure what discounts are offered, the easiest way to see what is currently available is to visit the official Disney World website.

You can go right to the Special Offers page itself, which is located under the “Places to Stay” tab at the top of the main home page.

You can also scroll all the way down to the bottom of the main Disney World page to click on the link to “Special Offers” under “Places to Stay.”

If several are offered during your trip make sure you check different scenarios to see what saves you the most money.

How to get a Disney World special offer (a step-by-step guide)

Go to the “Places to Stay” category at the top of the main page on the Disney World website and select “View Special Offers.”

How to modify an existing reservation to add a discount or special offer

If a promotion you would like to use is released after you have booked a trip, you will need to modify your existing reservation to apply it. There are 2 ways to modify an existing reservation:

  • online (preferred method) 
  • by calling Disney at (407) 939-1936

Modifying a reservation online is easy and far quicker than calling, so whenever possible, we recommend you use this method.

To modify, first you’ll need to log into your My Disney Experience account and navigate to the “My Plans” section.

modify resort reservation in my disney experience

You may have to sign into your Disney account.

disney account login prompt

Once there, select “Change Reservation.”

modify disney world hotel reservation

If a travel agent or someone else in your party made the reservation, you’ll have to contact them to make changes.

modifying disney resort reservation

After the page opens you should be able to see all the different aspects of your reservation that you can modify, including a section called “Vacation Offers.” Select “Change” in that section to modify your reservation to include available promotions.

update vacation offer disney world reservation
  • Tip(s): You may not have the “change” link if you have add-ons for your trip like Memory Maker. Consider adding add-ons after promotions are released to make it easier to modify those reservations online.

How travel agents can help

If the thought of trying to snag discounts as soon as they come out is overwhelming, you might want to consider using a travel agent.

Small World Vacations travel agents are always on top of the latest discounts and will work to secure you the best deal for your money.

This spreadsheet will tell you exactly what discounts were offered when and while things aren’t exactly the same from year-to-year, knowing when discounts for your travel dates have been historically released in the past can help you plan.

Because this spreadsheet is large, we recommend you open in it a new tab so that you can see all the columns.

Doing that will allow you to filter by your exact travel dates or discount type.

Tips for getting a Disney World promotion or special offer

Some tips to better your odds of having a discount during your trip:

  • Use a good Disney travel agent. It costs you nothing to use a travel agent, so if you’d like to take the guesswork out of planning your next trip request a quote and let someone experienced help you start the process.
  • Get a Disney Visa. People with Disney Visa cards are sometimes able to book some of the promotions a few days before everybody else as well as be eligible for exclusive promotions or dates.
  • Sign up for the newsletter. When discounts are announced, we email people on the newsletter list.
  • Book dates when discounts are available. Using the spreadsheet above, you should be able to see when discounts are available. To maximize your chances book your vacation for dates/times of the year that typically see discounts.
  • Avoid staying at excluded resorts. Art of Animation Little Mermaid rooms, Fort Wilderness campsites, 3-bedroom Villas, and new resorts are often excluded from promotions, so you would want to stay elsewhere to qualify for a discount. If you already have a reservation booked at a resort and a promotion is released that excludes that resort, you can change resorts to get the discount.
  • Stay flexible. Sometimes moving resorts or even room categories will open up more options for discounts so the more flexible you are the more likely you’ll be to snag a discount.

Disney World Promotions, Discounts, and Special Offers FAQs

How can I find out about current special offers and promotions at Disney World?

The best way to find out about current offers is to either contact your travel agent OR visit the official Disney World website and navigate to their “Special Offers” page.

Can I combine multiple discounts or promotions?

Typically, discounts and promotions cannot be combined. You’ll usually have to choose the one that provides the best value for you.

What about discounts for international visitors?

Disney World occasionally offers special promotions aimed at visitors from specific countries. It’s best to check the website or contact customer service for information tailored to your location.

Are there last-minute deals available?

While Disney doesn’t typically offer last-minute deals, you can sometimes find Disney rooms discounted on websites like Priceline.com.

Are there any other ways to save money on a Disney World vacation?

One of our most favorite way to save big on your resort stay is to rent Disney Vacation Club points. Just make sure you understand all the ins and outs because you generally have less flexibility if you need to cancel using this method. We cover all of that in our guide on How to rent Disney DVC Points.

Can a room-only discount be applied to a ticketless package? We are staying at Caribbean beach with room/dining pkg but we have our tickets purchased from an outside vendor.

I have a question... If we already have a reservation booked . They release a discounted rate and we also already have made ADR’s and Fastass+ will we be able to keep those reservations?

Your section, "HOW TO MODIFY AN EXISTING RESERVATION TO ADD A DISCOUNT" on this page was extremely helpful. I thought I was going to have to call and talk to a person in order to apply a room discount to a package I have already booked. Your instructions for how to do it online and the screenshots were just what I needed. I applied the discount to the package I booked, then I walked a family member through the steps so he could apply a discount to a package he booked. Thanks!

My fiance and l were gifted a 7-night stay at our friends' timeshare at the Sheraton Vistana near WDW. We are Disneymooning there April 29-May 6 of 2019. I see that many of the best discounts are for those staying in Disney property, but is there anything for someone who's not? Also, I LOVE your pages on Pinterest, YouTube, Facebook and the blog more than any other online Disney expert!
