Walt Disney World now discounting summer hotel room rates
Walt Disney World announced today that it is expanding its spring discounts for Disney's on-property resorts into summer.
Here are the details. (Scroll down to "Summer Travel Dates Added!")
The discounts are good for "most nights" between June 4 and August 14. The discounts range from 25% off on Value Resorts to 40% off on Deluxe Villas.
I'll leave the business analysis to you, in the comments.
You can find the link to Walt Disney World's deal and discounts page, as well as discount pages from other theme parks and resorts, on Theme Park Insider's Guide to Buying Theme Park Tickets page.
I haven't compared this to Universal Orlando's rates yet, but does anyone think this may be a way to draw people away from staying at Universal for Harry Potter's opening, and spend that money at Disney?
I think that is exactly what they are doing. There is a focus on Summer Nights, and they are bringing the Nostalgic Electric Light Parade back from DIsneyland. I'm fine with it. DH would like to get over to Universal, but WDW keeps pulling us back in (not that I am a tough sell).
Great theme park tip: Go where the crowds ain't.
Disney will be more crowded than Universal for sure, but its because its bigger and still is the brand name in FL.
