Everyone wants to know how to stay Disney deluxe for cheap, and most people have no idea that yes, it IS possible.
I’m asked about them all the time, and to be honest I’ve never seen the point of them. They’ve never been able to secure a deal for me that I couldn’t get myself.
Because now? Now, I’m a believer.
Over the past couple of years, when going to Disney and staying onsite, we’ve typically rented Disney Vacation Club points from members, as I’ve shown here before. Well, we recently returned from our latest trip, and we went into booking it just like all the others. We rented a studio villa at Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House for about $163 per night. Add in housekeeping for $30 per day, and that brings the total to $193 per night. Rates when booking directly though Disney World, for the same studio villa, for the same dates, started at $313 per night. If we wanted a regular hotel room (non-villa), prices ranged from $339 to $389 per night depending on the view.
We also added a few days post-Disney, staying at the Marriott World Center Resort & Spa (the hotel we got married at)!
So, a few months after booking those hotel stays, I started hearing all this buzz about this travel agency, whom apparently gets exclusive deals through Disney. I investigated because, well, why not?
You guys – it’s CHEAP!
We had no choice (ha!) but to add a few days onto our trip! We added those additional days at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, using the irresistible deal that the super fabulous Candice booked for us. And we’ll play the number game again, because I just LOVE it! When booking directly through Disney, each night at the Yacht Club averaged to about $355 per night. Our cost? $202.50.
Now that’s a great savings! Especially when said travel agent ALSO offers discounts on park tickets when you book your hotel stay through them! Remember when I shared this information on discounted tickets? Well, I did even better this time! Let me show you…
For 5 days (one park per day, no hoppers), PLUS the water park & more option, for two adults the total comes to…
Again, an unreal deal!
So amazing, in fact, that we’ve already booked our next year’s trip again through Candice! This time, we’re staying at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Beach Club Resort. What can I say, I love splitting our stay at different hotels! I just can’t decide between the Epcot resorts and Magic Kingdom resorts, so we do both. But more importantly, ready for some MORE awesome savings? We’re paying $215 per night at Beach Club (Disney’s cost is $438 per night when booking directly through them), and $239 per night at the Polynesian (Disney’s cost is $508 per night when booking directly through them).
Seriously, anyone can book this deal! The only catch is you must travel through select dates, you cannot add the Disney dining plan, and the deal is only available at select Disney deluxe hotels & room views. The only thing you need to book is a $200 deposit, with the balance being due 45 days prior. Have questions? See the savings for yourself and email Candice @ Candice at MagicalVacationsTravel.com.
Despite this sounding like an ad or sponsored post – it’s not. I received nothing for this post and simply wanted to share this information with my amazing readers. After all, who doesn’t love some wonderful savings AND Disney World?!
