Disney World Room Rate Deal For 2014

By Dave Shute


I’ve been getting lots of cards and letters over the last 48 hours about a wave of new Disney World pin codes for 2014 going out—especially from the “Mysterious B.” (Not the same person as the “Mysterious J” of Monday’s Free Dining post!)

Here’s the story: pin codes with room rate discounts well into April 2014 are going out, with the following details:

For most dates from January 5 – March 2, 2014 and March 16 – April 12, 2014

  • Save 30% at select Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts
  • Save 30% at select Disney Deluxe Resorts
  • Save 25% at select Disney Moderate Resorts
  • Save 20% at select Disney Value Resorts

One of my sources has the “Book By” date as July 28.

For what a pin code is, and how to see if you have one—or even talk your way into getting one!—see the second half of this.

Now frankly, I find the dates on offer here curious.

They include the wildly busy Presidents Day week, exclude the pretty low-crowd first week of March, but then include the first day of the unbelievably busy week before Easter.

So maybe—and I’m thinking of the week before Easter in particular here–these are inclusive dates, rather than, as is common on these deals, arrival dates?

Or maybe I’m just thinking too much.

…and thanks again, “Mysterious B”!

Oh yay! Thanks for this update! Now to try to get one of those pin codes. Are they giving them out to people already booked also?

Dave, I found out that if you want to stay for more than 14 days at a Disney resort you can´t purchase tickets or dining plan with your room, any reason why? I wanted to stay for 16 nights and couldn’t. Should I make another reservation for the extra days?

Hi Dave, so if I’m booking through my travel agent, would she be the one that can call and see if we have a pin code? Or would it be better if I called myself? We are travelling Feb 28 – Mar 9, 2014. Do those room rate deals apply to us?

4 Jessica { 07.17.13 at 11:57 am }

Do these rates apply to “room only” reservations, or would they be applied to the room portion of a package, assuming I could get a pin? Also, I received a pin from Disney via email the other day for roughly the same dates for “play, stay, dine” deals. Any thoughts on that discount?? Should I call and book with that one since I already have a pin? Thanks!! Your site has been invaluable to this obsessive planning, first time Disney visitor/mom 🙂

Hi Lindsey! Yes they are. Call to see if you have one!

Hey Tom, I think I had heard that before, but interesting to have you confirm it! I have no idea why. Splitting your reservation does seem to make sense…

7 Dave { 07.18.13 at 7:51 am }

Jennifer, you can find out if you have a code yourself, but, if you booked through a travel agent, only your travel agent can get it applied. So I’d leave both to the travel agent…

Hi Jessica, and I’m so glad the site is helping!

These room rate discounts don’t require you to buy anything else. You can add other elements like dining and tix if you wish.

I’ve heard that the “play” deal is out too, but haven’t seen the details, so I don’t know what it’s worth…

I got codes for November 2013 today. I was hoping they were for 2014 since I will be there in Feb.

10 Dave { 07.18.13 at 4:57 pm }


11 Tom { 07.18.13 at 10:08 pm }

Dave, it is the case indeed. If you plan to book more than 14 nights, that is 15 or more, you can´t buy either tickets or dining plan with the bundle. You got to buy them separated. Weird, huh?

12 Dave { 07.19.13 at 8:39 am }

Tom, sometimes I’m surprised that I’m surprised at the things Disney will do!

13 Jen { 09.05.13 at 6:13 pm }

Any updates on these discounts for public for January 2014? We are going MLK week.

14 Dave { 09.06.13 at 6:37 am }

Nope, Jen, I have nothing new on these…
