Disney World Room Rate Deal for Into June 2018 Released



By Dave Shute

DISNEY WORLD DEALS FOR EARLY 2018

Today a Disney World room rate deal covering most nights from February 18 through June 10 2018 came out.

Discounts can vary by booking date, stay date, resort and resort class, and are not available in all booking categories. The deal structure in some instance is complicated, with as many as three different savings rates for the same room depending on when you book and when you stay.

Overall savings are so-so, ranging from 10% to 20%, but at the deluxe hotels in particular that range from $500 to almost $1000 a night, 20% is not a bad thing!

 

Other, more complicated, deals came out today as well.  The best way to sort through your savings and choose the best is to work with my travel agent, Kelly B–she will do all the math for you.

Kelly B. has been the travel agent partner of this site for years. To book your vacation through her, contact her at KellyB@DestinationsInFlorida.com or 980-429-4499. (She may take a bit to get back to you, as she’s busy this morning trying to get the best deal for the clients she’s already serving!)

VALUE RESORT SAVINGS

At the Disney World values resorts, Little Mermaid Rooms at Art of Animation are excluded. The other value resort options are 10% off, and there’s no difference in savings by when you book or stay.

At the values, the week before Easter is excluded from the eligible dates.

MODERATE RESORT SAVINGS

At the moderates, Port Orleans French Quarter is not in the deal.  Other moderate options offer savings of 10% to 20%, depending on when you book and when you stay.

DELUXE RESORT SAVINGS

At the deluxes, the Contemporary, Polynesian Village, and Wilderness Lodge are 10% off, and the rest are 20% off.

DISNEY VACATION CLUB RESORT SAVINGS

At the DVC resorts, Bay Lake Tower, the Villas at the Grand Floridian, Bungalows at the Polynesian, and Cascade Cabins at Copper Creek are excluded. Old Key West, Saratoga Springs, and the BoardWalk Villas are 20% off. The other DVC resorts are 10% off. Note the typo–Copper Creek is listed twice…

The deal needs to be booked by either March 7 or April 7. Reviews of all these resorts are linked to on this page.

Disney’s page on this deal is here, and you can reach Kelly at KellyB@DestinationsInFlorida.com or 980-429-4499, or use the quote form below.

My family of 5, two adults and three kids (9,6,1) are booked at AoA in a Cars Family Suite this May. I just realized that I can switch to POR in a Royal room and save $440.00. What would you do? I have stayed in a family suite at AoA before so I do like that we would have more space and a second bathroom but I don’t know if that is worth the difference in price. Also, my husband does not love AoA as he feels that it is way too in your face theme wise. I will also note that this is a short four night stay, not our first visit and will not be our last. Thanks!

Tiffany, I would keep the extra space and extra bath, but I don’t think going to POR would be an error, especially on such a short trip.

I think the Royal Guest rooms only sleep 4 people, not 5. You would have to book an ‘Alligator Bayou’ room to get a room that sleeps 5 at Port Orleans Riverside.

AJ, thanks for weighing in! Her fifth is younger than three, so does not count against the occupancy limits. Thus she can fit in POR!

So this is kind of last minute but we’re looking at March 12th through March 15th 2018 with two four year old and one nine year old and me and my married daughter definitely trying to do it as inexpensively as possible but to give the kids their first trip of a once-in-a-lifetime experience any thoughts or suggestions would be welcomed

Hi Stephanie, you will have trouble finding a room at Disney World on such short notice during the high crowd Spring Break period, and it’s particularly hard to find one for 5 people that is affordable, as Disney’s least expensive rooms only fit four.

I’d suggest you work with a travel agent to find a hotel, most likely off property but maybe at Disney Springs. The one I recommend is Kelly, and her contact info is here.

We are planning our first family tripfor august 2018. Do you know when disney releases the room discount for that time of year?
Thanks

Hi Jamie, in 2017 it came out in early April.
