Hello! We have a guest post today from Michelle Stepney, News Bureau Director for Disney Destinations, LLC. Stepney will talk to us about ways to visit Disney World as frugally as possible! The theme park has some "hook ups" going on this fall!
Disney’s Magical Express – When guests bound for Disney owned-and-operated hotels are traveling via commercial airline to Orlando International Airport (OIA), they can arrange for special luggage tags that allow them to check their bags at their hometown airport, bypass baggage claim at OIA and board state-of-the-art motor coaches for complimentary transportation to the Vacation Kingdom, where their bags “magically” appear in their guestroom. When it’s time to say good-bye, guests board motor coaches for complimentary transportation back to OIA. An extra convenience: Guests traveling on participating airlines can check their baggage for the return flight at their Disney resort, saving time and luggage-toting at the airport.
Walt Disney World Transportation System – A Walt Disney World resort ID is the ticket for buses, monorails and boat launches that combine to connect virtually all areas of the Vacation Kingdom. With the convenience of “door-to-door” service throughout the resort, many guests enjoy their Walt Disney World vacation without a car.
But if you do rent a car…
Exemption from parking fees at the theme parks – By presenting a resort ID, guests enter parking lots for free no matter how many parks they visit during their stay.
Free Dining Offer:
Guests buying a five-night/five-day room and theme park ticket package at select Disney Moderate, Disney Deluxe or Disney Deluxe Villa resorts for stays most nights from Oct. 1 to Nov. 24 and Nov. 29 to Dec. 17, 2009 can enjoy the Disney Dining Plan for free. The Disney Dining Plan includes one quick-service meal, one select snack and one table-service meal at up to 100 restaurants for each night of the package stay.
The package can be booked now through Sept. 26, 2009, at disneyworld.com or by calling 407/W-DISNEY (407/934-7639) or their local travel agent and asking for package code KHF for packages with rooms at Disney Value Resorts and asking for package code TEP for packages with rooms at select Disney Moderate, Disney Deluxe or Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts.
All You Can Drink:
“Bottomless” drinking mug – Quenching a vacation-long thirst is easy at Disney’s resorts. Guests can purchase a mug themed to their resort that will become a keepsake when the holiday ends. During their length of stay, they can continually refill the mug at designated locations at their resort.
Have you been to Disney World? Who is your favorite character? Do you think Mickey uses the "bottomless drinking mug?" How does Mickey stay the life of the party?
