Disney World Summer 2014 Deal

By Dave Shute

Disney World Summer 2014 Deal from yourfirstvisit.netDisney World has released a multi-level deal for arrival dates June 15 – August 28 2014. This deal needs to be booked by June 6, 2014.

There’s one set of discounts for stays of 3-5 nights, and a 5% higher set of discounts for stays longer than 5 nights. The longer stays are eligible for a ticket deal as well. I’ll post more on the ticket deal later, but I think it’s a free additional ticket day—which is worth $10.65 per person.


Value resorts:

  • Excluded: Art of Animation Little Mermaid, All-Star Movies
  • Art of Animation Family Suites – 10%
  • Other value Resorts – 15%

Moderate resorts:

  • Excluded: Port Orleans French Quarter
  • Other Moderate Resorts – 20%

Deluxe resorts and DVC:

  • Excluded: Bay Lake Tower and Villas at the Grand Floridian
  • Contemporary, Beach Club, AKL Savanna View, Wilderness Lodge Villas, Beach Club Villas, Jambo Villas, Kidani Village- 20%
  • Other Deluxe and DVC Resorts – 30%


Add 5 percentage points to the deals noted above.

Any deal with this kind of structure particularly pays at the break point–that is, moving from 5 to 6 nights gets you 5 points of discounts more on the first 5 nights.

So for example during the value season a sixth night at the Wilderness Lodge costs just $129 more than 5 nights.  If this also makes a free ticket day available and useful to you, then the net cost of the 6th night is less than $90 for a 4 person family.

For more details see Disney’s page on the deal.

Hey Dave,

I was wondering on the summer deal, is this deal out to the public sooner than normal? Just wondering if we are still looking at about the 1st of May for a Free Dining offer if they have it. Would be nice to see it sooner. Wishfull thinking on my part. 🙂

Lisa, it’s out 2-6 weeks earlier than the last three years. I suspect this is becasue of the impending blitz of marketing about Harry Potter. Recently the new deals have come out a few days after the expiry of the current deals. based purely on that a September deal would come out after June 6. But of course WDW can do anything anytime!

Hi Dave, I don’t quite understand how the free ticket comes into play. I’m staying longer than 5 days in August at POR. Does this work for Park Hopper tickets? We’re going to spend 6 days in the park and want the Park Hopper option for all days except maybe one. Thanks!

4 Dave { 04.13.14 at 12:01 pm }

Hiya Kate, first you have to call and get the deal. If you get it, you will get a day added to your tickets. Hopper is unrelated. That’s a fixed price for any number of days greater than 3. So having a hopper for 5 days means it’ll automatically go to any added days!
