New Disney World 2014 Deal Aimed at First Time Visitors

By Dave Shute

2014 Disney World Deals from yourfirstvisit.netWalt Disney World has released a new “families with little ones” Intro to Disney offer which–doubtless inspired by this site 🙂 –it’s aiming at first time visitors.

Here’s some of Disney’s language:

“[N]ow’s a terrific time to share Disney magic together for the first time—thanks to a special offer created for families with little ones.”

The deal packages together rooms, tickets, and dining plans, and looks to be a variant of the already-released “Stay Play and Dine” deal.

Disney World 2014 Deal Aimed at First Visits from yourfirstvisit.netThe example given includes three people–two ten and older and one aged 3-9. Three nights at Pop Century or one of the All-Stars, two ticket days, and the quick-service dining plan are priced at $999. By my math, that’s at least $150 off.

Deals for other family structures and trip lengths are available.

This deal covers most arrival dates January 5 through February 12, 2014, and needs to be booked by December 31.

See more on Disney’s page on this offer here.

–And thanks, Joe Black, for the heads-up on this deal!

Hello There! was planning to go the week of 2/1 -2/8 with my husband, 5 yr old and 18 month old. Picked that week for the lowest possible crowds and prices. We will go again in a few years. Was going to do the Art of Animation resort but with this deal would only offer the quick serve plan for that hotel. Is it worth going with a moderate hotel in order to get a regular dining plan? Planned to do the parks probably 6 days of the 8. THANKS.

on second thought – art of animation isn’t offered at all – why is it never on any of the deals? anyways, Any recommendations on what to pick w/ this deal? for my situation…..

Typically, Michelle, in deals like this the mods are the best value–not way expensive to start, then table service dining too. You have to try the numbers, tho. AofA suites are in some deals, not others. Little Mermaid has not been in a deal since it opened–too much demand for Disney to need to discount it!

Same issue with all deals coming out for our January trip staying at Cars AoA 🙁 We could spend same and stay at Wilderness Lodge (standard room). Very torn on this decision as my son loves Cars and we loved the idea of the suite. So many people love Wilderness Lodge though. Our kids are 5 and 7. Decisions!!

5 Dave { 11.01.13 at 9:04 am }

Same answer: you’ll prefer the room at AofA, and everything else at WL…

6 Michelle { 10.31.13 at 6:41 pm }

any suggestions on which mod. based on my kids ages?

7 Dave { 11.01.13 at 9:09 am }

Michelle, at those ages, because kid appeal differences among the moderates are slight, you should probably pick among them for yourself, not them..

Rankings that include kid appeal are here:

An alternative ranking aimed more at factors other than kid appeal is here:

Hi Dave – thanks! Booked today at the French Quarter for 2/1-2/8. Was 300 something less at this moderate w/ a dining plan and deal than it was at AoA without a deal, so that decided it. Since i am only 92 days out… i am trying to figure out which meals and shows i should book right away to get the best out of our time. I am going to poke around on your site and figure it out but any quick professional suggestions would be most welcomed. I did book Akersus for Breakfast one day, but i can change it if needed. Thanks for your site, its truly a wealth of knowledge…. Not sure 90 days is long enough to master and plan all these things ;O)

Cool Michelle! For restaurants to target and prioritize, see any of the to-do lists–e.g. the section labeled “C. Exactly 6am EST, Exactly 180 Days Before…” here:

10 Michelle { 11.01.13 at 6:49 pm }

one more question – should i still do the hoop de du with a 1 yr old? I am figuring Cirque du soleil would be a no w/ him……. be our guest was totally booked already. booo.

11 Dave { 11.02.13 at 10:18 am }

Hoop should be fine…not so noisy as to scare a one year old…

12 Sara M { 11.24.13 at 2:33 pm }

This deal seems expensive to me considering we stayed for 4 nights on the disney dining plan for a family of 3 for 1500 (on free dining at POP).

13 Dave { 11.24.13 at 3:39 pm }

Yeah, it’s just a discount–not free dining…
