Resort owners WDW announced last week it would cut its rates by 5% on average over the next three years.
This includes the resort’s first three days of open enrollment, but will include any extended weekends, holidays and other holidays that are included in the new rate.
Here are some of the savings you can expect to see: The resort’s standard room rate, which includes all the basics, will drop from $199 to $199.95.
The standard room charge is already lower than the hotel’s average for those three days.
WDW’s new standard room rates include the three-day “winter” window, the six-day and 12-day dates and are included for the first three nights.
The resort will also drop the standard room booking fee to $29.99.
The three-night room is the one that stays at WDW and the three nights that are booked are the one you’re getting in the resort.
The $299 standard room is one that comes with a complimentary WDW Resort Pass, which costs $49.99 a night and includes three nights, a complimentary Disney Dining Plan (includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and beverage), a complimentary hotel room voucher and an unlimited beverage pass.
The five-night standard room costs $279.99, and the six or more nights it is booked is a $699.99 standard room.
Guests staying on the resort during the winter window will also get a free “winter theme” night, which is typically reserved for the three days before the standard window is opened.
The four-night basic room will drop to $289.99 and the five- and six-night rooms are $499.99 for standard rooms and $699 for all four nights.
A $2,000 discount is also offered for any standard room reservation, which you can get by adding an additional $100 to your reservation fee.
There are two options to book your standard room, including one for four nights and one for five nights.
For the four-and-a-half-night plan, you can book for the standard standard room in three or four different rooms, but can also book a three- or four-bedroom suite, as long as they are the same type of room as the standard one.
The two-night suite option is more of a compromise.
It includes one standard room for four, two standard rooms for five and three standard rooms.
Guests with the four room suite can book the standard suite at $1,500 per night, and those with the three room suite at the same price.
The seven-night resort standard room will be available for purchase starting on Dec. 1.
It’s only a matter of time until you get the opportunity to book one of these rooms, and we hope you have plenty of time to do so.
