Now is the time for Disney discounts

Now is the time — to consider planning a visit to Walt Disney World.

The resort is jumping on the deals bandwagon, offering guests three free nights at a Disney resort and three more days at the theme parks. The deal is good when guests buy a four-night/four-day non-discounted Walt Disney Travel Co. Magic Your Way hotel and ticket package. This special runs from Feb. 9 to April 4 and from April 19 to June 27.

Also, anyone traveling on this package between Feb. 9 and March 29 receives a free $200 Disney gift card.

The packages start at $1,375 and must be booked by Jan. 24.

“Walt Disney World Resort has always presented a great entertainment value for our guests,” Walt Disney World President Meg Crofton said in a news release. “This special travel offer makes it even easier for guests to enjoy a magical, memory-making Disney vacation in 2009.”

Also, the resort previously announced that guests receive free admission to the park on their birthday. Guests must register for their free ticket.

“Birthdays are the one occasion that we all share every year,” Jay Rasulo, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts said in a news release. “We thought a free birthday ticket would be the icing on the cake as we extend this new ‘celebration vacation’ trend to Disney Parks.”
