Disney News- Summer Stay Offers for Disney World Resorts

There is a lot of new information out from Disney this week concerning summer stays for both Annual Passholders and general guests. So without further ado, let’s just jump into this and break it all down for you.

Dates and Rates for Annual Passholder Stays at Disney World Resort Hotels:

The first big announcement is for Annual Passholders. The official resort discounts for summer have been released. If you’re like me, this is exciting new. I never like to pay full price for Disney World resorts if I don’t have to and the 35% savings can cut a lot of the price off of a family vacation. This discount is valid for vacations with a minimum of a 1 night stay to a maximum of a 14 night stay for stays most nights between July 1,2019 to August 28, 2019. So sorry guys, these offers won’t be available for stays during the start of Food and Wine or the grand opening of Galaxy’s Edge. Also, keep in mind that part of this will be during blackout dates for Annual Passholders with the Silver passes. But even Silver Passholder can enjoy stays with these discounted rate from August 9th to August 28th.

Also, keep in mind that number of rooms allocated for these discounts, as well as the resort hotels and types of rooms are limited. So make sure that you book your stay soon.

For information on how much your stay will cost, head over to the Disney World website here. Select My Disney Experience and go down to Annual Passholder Types, Benefits, and Discounts. Once you’re there, select View Resort Offers.

To book by phone, call (407) 939-2750 and speak with a vacation planning expert or contact your travel agent.
