Yes, applying a discount to your Walt Disney World vacation before you travel but after you have already booked it is possible! Booking a Walt Disney World vacation can be a big expense for families in today’s economy. Many people do not do the research into the vacations and hope by waiting to book their vacation at the last minute, that there may be a discounted price to help sell off rooms, as there are with many other destinations.
The Disney Travel Company is not known for offering last minute discounts, but instead offers deals – such as the FREE Disney Dining Plan, throughout the year. In fact, the Disney Travel Company allows guests to book their Walt Disney World vacations up to 499 days prior to the vacation start date and many frequent Disney-goers do book this early as they are able to have their pick at which Disney Resort they will be staying at, the room type of their choice, Discount Watch and take advantage of promotions that may pop up for their vacation dates. Plus, booking early allows guests to take advantage of the current Magic Your Way Park Pass prices, which tend to jump in price each Spring/Summer.
How can you take advantage of current promotions if you’ve already booked?
Walt Disney World is different than many other companies in allowing guests that have already booked their vacations to take advantage of any promotions that may pop up and will help the guest save money.
Can I book with an agency and get the better prices?
Yes! Agents that are ‘Authorized Disney Planners’ are able to take advantage of any of the promotions that the Disney Travel Company releases. When booking your Walt Disney World vacation, be sure to ask your agent if they are able and willing to do this.
Destinations in Florida was the first agency to introduce Discount Watching to their Disney World guests several years ago, and prides themselves on this great perk that allows their guests to receive the best price possible on their vacations.
Guests who have booked their vacations with Destinations in Florida don’t need to worry about keeping an eye on the different discounts that come out. The agents at Destinations in Florida are always staying up to date on what promotions are being announced and each agent will automatically make the changes to their clients’ reservations if a discount is running during their vacation dates!
Guests that book their Disney vacations directly with Disney either by phone or by internet are able to take advantage of the better promotion price, but Discount Watching can be time consuming as you need to keep tabs on what is going on at Disney and jump on any deals that pop-up the second that they do come up. An agency can definitely be an advantage here in doing all the work and keeping you informed on discounts as they come up.
