Every year, Disney uses special discount offers to entice guests to stay at their resorts. The most popular offers are Free Dining and Room Rate Discounts. Recently, Disney has been trying some new tactics including variations of their popular offers.
Disney’s latest variation combines a Room Rate Discount with an additional gift card offer!
This brand-new kind of discount gives guests a digital gift card based on the length of stay and resort. For all resorts, the offer is valid for stays between May 28th and August 28th, 2019. Here are the details:
Stay at one of Disney’s Value Resort Hotels, and you will save up to 15%. With the gift card offer, you’ll get another $10 per room per night.
Disney’s Moderate Resorts offer a discount of up to 25% with a $15 gift card per room per night.
When you stay at one of Disney’s Deluxe Resorts or Disney’s Deluxe Villa Resorts, you’ll also save up to 25%, but the gift card amounts are different. Deluxe Resort guests will get $20 per room per night and Deluxe Villa guests will get $25 per room per night.
The room rate discount is available on limited rooms and select resorts, and there may be length of stay requirements. There will be an additional charge if there are more than two adults in a room, and the offer cannot be combined with other offers like the Free Dining discount. The room rate discount excludes three-bedroom villas, Copper Creek Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Lodge, and the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.
Regarding the gift cards, guests will get one gift card per reservation. If you check in online and include your e-mail, the gift card will be sent to you on your day of arrival. If you check in at the front desk, provide them with your e-mail address, and they’ll send you the gift card. Gift cards can be used for goods and services at participating locations at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Disney Store, and shopDisney.com.
You may already know that Disney offers gift cards if you forgo Mousekeeping (Disney’s version of housekeeping). While Disney says the room discount/gift card offer can’t be combined with another offer, it seems that you can combine it with the gift card for declining housekeeping!
Room Discount and a Gift Card: a good deal?
