Book a Trip, Get a Free Gift Card Worth up to $150.

I’m still doing the free Disney gift card offer through the end of this summer.
The trip must be a new booking.  Gift cards are based on your final package amount.  Please mention the website and this offer when you contact me.

Gift card amounts are as follows: 

  • $25 for vacations worth $1800 – $2599;
  • $50 for vacations worth $2600 – $8999.
  • $75 for vacations worth $9000 – $11,999.
  • $100 for vacations worth $12,000 – $15,000.
  • $150 for vacations worth more than $15,000.
  • Ask about special per-room offers for Grand Gatherings.
  • Multiple room bookings are not combined.  You will receive a gift card based on the amount of your per-room booking.
  • Get a $25 gift card for referrals over $1800 when the client travels.
  • Total amount excludes airfare, which is not a commissionable item.

 Here’s how it works:  Book any of the above vacations and you’ll receive a free gift card with your travel documents. Travel between now and the end of 2012.  Pixie Vacations does not charge for their services nor do we charge a cancellation fee.  When you book with us, we’ll continue to watch for discounts and apply them to your existing reservation if it saves you money.  There’s generally no penalty for this.  So what do you have to lose?  Worse case scenario, you save $25 over what Disney can offer by booking with me.

2012 Packages Are Out Today.

Disney surprised us a lot this week. First, they announced on Friday that they were increasing ticket prices today, June 12. And now they’ve also announced package prices for the upcoming year. What’s so surprising about this? Well, historically they’ve done this in August?  What’s going on?  Sadly, I have no idea what the implications for the company are or what it means for future discounts (although I have a few theories) but for the guest, it means you’ll get a little more time to  plan  that winter vacation and a lot more time to dream about the one you’re taking more than a year from now. 

Remember, you can book now and apply discounts later. Either keep up with the discounts yourself or your travel agent will do it for you and automatically apply them if they help you.  There’s generally no penalty to apply discounts to an existing reservation. I will always have new discounts up on this site as soon as they are announced–sometimes sooner–so keep watch here and on other good Disney sites like Disboards, Chip and Co and Touring Plans.

Here’s one thing I can’t help but wonder:  Will Disney also release discounts for the rest of the year sooner rather than later?  We haven’t had any general public discounts for October through December yet, so those should be coming.  If follow last year’s plan, Disney will announce discounts for the rest of 2011 and most of 2012 in August, but now I’m wondering if those will be early too.  It’s hard to say, as they seem to be changing everything, but I certainly hope so.

I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, book a new vacation with me now through the end of August and I’ll give you a free Disney gift card worth up to $100. That’s in addition to current and future discounts.  My service  is free and there are no cancellation fees, so you’ll always do better with me than booking through Disney directly.  Please email me at ChrisW@PixieVacations.com for more details.

Disney Ticket Prices Go Up June 12, Military Prices Out, and More.

Just a quick post to let everyone know that ticket prices for Disney parks will go up on Sunday, June 12.  Price increases are as low as 3.66 percent on a one-day base adult ticket to a whopping 13.8 percent increase for a ten-day base child’s ticket.  Easy WDW, who is clearly better at math than I am, has all the price increases here.  This announcement is a change from previous years, as ticket prices have historically gone up in August.  If you have a confirmed package reservation or a valid hold, your ticket prices will not change.

I’m also being told that 2012 package prices will come out soon, as early as Sunday or as late as July 1.  On a related note, military room rates under the Disney Armed Forces Salute, which was extended earlier this spring, came out yesterday for the rest of the year.  To qualify, you’ll need a valid retired or active military identification card. You may also take advantage of discounted tickets under this offer; you are not required to book a Disney room to purchase these tickets. Though this offer is good for most of 2012, resort room prices under the Armed Forces Salute are not out for 2012. I’ll update when they come out.

Finally, I’m still offering a free Disney gift card giveaway with each new vacation booked through the end of August; this offer is in addition to published discounts.  See this post for details.  Please email me at ChrisW@PixieVacations.com for more information.

Predicting the Future of Disney Discounts.

Well, first of all, the truth is that none of us can really do this, right? I mean, as we wait for fall discounts to be released by Disney, only a small number of people who work for The Mouse really know what to expect. But what we can do is take what we know about past discounts and combine that with what we’re seeing today to get an idea of what to expect in the future. 

Last year, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that Disney would be scaling back on discounts now that the economy has begun to improve.  Almost concurrently, a new round of discounts came out, including free dining and a kids free promotion that covered most of 2011.  Most of us assumed that Iger’s comments were nothing more than bravado designed to appease shareholders, but it looks like Disney means it this time–at least to an extent. While the first round of discounts to come out for 2011 were excellent, what we’re seeing is that subsequent offers for the same time period are not as good. 

For example, free dining was offered in August 2010 for most dates through September 2011 (there were the usual holiday blackouts, of course).  The only catch was that you had to book by December 20, 2010.  That was the last offer for free dining until it was offered again in May for the month of September 2011, but there was a catch:  The offer now required you to purchase a photobook for an additional $90.  So this new offer costs you an additional $90 more than it would have if you’d booked it back in December.  It’s still a deal, of course, just less than what was offered before.

This is exactly what we, as travel agents, are hearing from Disney. It’s true that most of the rank and file cast members we talk to when we book vacations probably aren’t all that informed on what discounts will come out in the future, we occasionally encounter some real gems.  A couple of weeks before the latest free dining offer was announced, I was talking to a cast member while making a reservation. It turned out she was a supervisor and a passionate Disney fan who had read an article I’d written for another website I write for, Chip and Co.  We got kind of chummy and I felt comfortable enough to pry a bit about upcomgin discounts. What she said is exactly what we’re seeing now:  That anything discount that comes out after an initial offer will be very limited in both the time and availabilty.  Sure enough, there was another summer discount, but it was for deluxe resorts and villas only. And when free dining came out, it bypassed summer and went straight to fall. 

What does this mean for the rest of the year?  I would put money on Disney releasing free dining and room discounts for the rest of the year. Remember, October through December were not covered in the initial discount offer for 2011; it ended in September 2012. The only discounts we’ve seen for this time period have been pin codes.  If they follow the same pattern they did last year, they’ll release the offers in mid-August for the rest of 2011 and much of 2012.  And, these will be the best offers for that time-period.

What you can do:

1.  Register at http://www.disney.com/ for a pin code, which are discount codes personal to you.  These are often better than discounts offered to the general public. Be advised that some people report never gettting a code whereas others get one every month.

2.  Always book the first discount that comes out. I know that plans change and that booking nearly a year in advance can be a scary proposition, but the first discount released for a time period will likely be the best that Disney offers.  If you need to cancel your plans, Disney offers a full refund on packages 45-days prior to travel, no questions asked.  If a better discount comes out, it can usually be applied to your travel package without penalty.

3.  Be an informed consumer.  I don’t personally wait for Disney to tell me when discounts are coming out because I want to be ready when a discount is announced. It’s especially important with limited offers to get your travel dates covered the first day the discount is released.  Yes, this sometimes means false starts because the rumor mill is always churning, but it also means that I’m not caught of guard.  If you’re booking on your own, you should be ready as well.  If you’re booking with a travel agent, make sure you have the kind of agent who stays up on discounts.

I keep up with a couple of sources religiously:  The resort discount board at Disboards and the Touring Plans Twitter feed.  Disboards posters are always on top of discounts; it’s sometimes uncanny. You’ll often hear of them days before they’re released by Disney.  As for Touring Plans, they’ve been right about every discount that has come out for the last year; usually they’ll announce it several days ahead of time. 

I don’t see Disney eliminating discounts completely in the near future. The public has grown too used to them. And while some sources have theorized that Disney is willing to take a major hit regarding attendance to wean the public off completely, I’m not seeing that. But I do think there’s a great deal of truth in the idea that the best discounts will be the first ones to come out.

Discount Offer Now Available for Disney’s Food and Wine Festival.

I normally try not to do two travel agent posts in a row, but Pixie Vacations just got an exclusive offer from Disney for Food and Wine and I wanted to put it out right away. Here are all the details:

The offer applies to the following standard rooms only: 

All Star Music: Save 35% off your room.

Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside: Save 32% off your resort room.

The Contemporary Resort: Save 50% off your garden wing room.

Disney’s Boardwalk Inn: Save 45% off your room.

Book by:

September 1, 2011.

Travel dates:

October 5-10 (dates may be extended several days on either side of the reservation provided there is availabilty).

These resort discounts are better than any published rates you’ll see this year at Disney World. Example: Book a standard room  (South Garden Wing) at the Contemporary Resort and save $209 a night over the non-discounted rate.  A family of five could stay at the Contemporary 4 nights and pay only $949.50 for their resort stay.

Theme park tickets are discounted 10 percent under this offer.

In addition, if you purchase a two-day theme park ticket, you’ll receive for a FREE water park admission. The dining plan can be added to this offer.

To qualify for this offer, you must book by September 1, 2011 and stay at least two nights between October 5 and October 10. Days may be added to the beginning and end of your vacation.

Rooms under this offer are booked as a block similar to conventions; they are very limited.

Remember, book in May and June and you’re automatically qualified for Pixie Vacation’s $250 gift card drawing.  Email me at  ChrisW@PixieVacations.com for more information on how you can get a free $25, $50, or $100 gift card when you book a new vacation in addition to current discounts.

Starting May 2nd Get Free Dining and a Free Disney Gift Card. UPDATED.

Here are the tentative details on the new free dining offer (see note below):  Starting Monday, you can book your next Disney vacation and get free dining for most stays from August 28 through September 24, 2011.  Disney value resorts will get the quick service dining plan while moderate and deluxe resorts will receive the base (one table-service, one-snack, and one-counter service per day) plan; remember, value resort guests can upgrade to the base plan for around $11 more per day for adults.  You must book by August 27, 2011.

Update:  This offer requires you to book a Disney Photopass Photo Book, which adds around $100 to the package.

But, at the risk of sounding like a cheesy game show host, there’s more. Last month I had a really positive response to my gift card offer for guests booking new vacations, so I’ve decided to extend that offer.  This offer is personal to my clients and not a Disney offer.  Here are the details:

Includes any Disney vacation, including Adventures by Disney, Disney  Cruise Line, and all Disney parks.

This offer is for NEW bookings only and excludes takeovers and vacations booked prior to May 2nd.

You may travel anytime within the next year.

Book through May 2 through August 27, 2011.

Gift card amounts: 

  • $25 for vacations worth $1800 – $2399;
  • $50 for vacations worth $2400 – $8999.
  • $75 for vacations worth $9000 – $15,000. 
  • $100 for vacations worth more than $15,000.
  • Ask about special per-room offers for Grand Gatherings.
  • $25 gift card for referrals when the client travels.

Gift cards are based on the final amount and will be provided when you travel.  Offer is not available for exclusive Pixie discounted packages such as the Star Wars Weekend offer and the Food and Wine Weekends Offer.  Pixie Vacations does not charge for its services nor do we personally charge a  fee in the event of cancellation; Disney offers full refunds for packages cancelled 45-days prior to travel.  Contact me at ChrisW@PixieVacations.com for more information.

NOTE:  There may be some changes to this post with regard to Disney’s free dining offer when it’s officially announced on Monday morning. I’ll update as soon as possible.

Playing the Disney Discount Game, Part III: Is Free Dining Really a Good Deal?

One question I hear a lot is whether or not free dining is a good deal.  If you’re a Disney discount hunter, you probably the know the answer is “It depends.”  And it depends on a lot of things: Where you’re staying, how many people are in your party, and perhaps most importantly, how do  you normally eat and tour the parks?

Last night one of my clients wrote to let me know that they got a pin code. A pin code, for the uninitiated, is a code personal to you that gives you certain discounts. These discounts come directly from Disney and are often for percentages off rooms or for free dining.  They’re usually a better deal than what’s available to the general public and often a preview of discounts that will be available later in the year to everyone else.  In my client’s case, her pin code was for free quick service dining at a value resort.   They were already signed up for the regular/plus dining plan, so it wasn’t a question of whether or not they would use it.  When I applied the code, I was shocked to see that it saved them around $600 off their trip, several hundred more than the room discount they previously had. That’s a nice savings. 

As noted above in their case, they already had a discount for a certain percentage off their room at Pop Century. Since you can’t combine discounts, they paid full “rack rate” for the room, but it was still a better deal.  They’re traveling with two children, one of whom is over the age of nine and therefore a Disney adult, so the plan costs around $150 a day.  The room discount at the values is almost never as good as free dining even when only the quick service plan is offered; remember, you can pay a few dollars more and upgrade to the regular/plus dining plan, which is what my clients did. Even if they were only traveling as a couple, free dining is a better deal at this resort.

The waters get a little murky when you move up from a value resort. This is particularly true at the moderates where the better deal is often a matter of a few dollars either way based mainly on how many people are in your group.  For example, a family with three kids over the age of nine plus two parents will pay $229.95 a day for the regular/plus dining plan. There’s no way you’ll ever get a moderate discount that’s better than that. But if it’s only two adults, depending on the season, the better deal could go either way.

In the past, the general rule was that room discounts at the deluxe resorts are better than free dining because these rooms can easily run $500 or more a night, but that’s no longer the case the case. Recently, deluxe discounts at some resorts have been no better than value discounts. For example, the Grand Floridian was previously discounted at 25% off, the same as the values.  Most of the other deluxe resorts were 35 to 40% off. This means you’ll need to know the exact discount offered at the resort you’re interested in.  Don’t just assume that an ad that reads “40% off Deluxe Resorts” applies to your resort as well; read the fine print and make sure your resort is one of them.  Finally, the same rule that applies at the values and moderates applies at deluxe resorts as well:  The more people in your party, the higher the chance that free dining is better for your wallet.

So how do you figure out which discount is better for you? You’ll almost always have to run the discount both ways:  Free dining vs. the room discount.  Don’t hesitate to ask your travel agent to run your quote for any and all discounts–that’s what they’re there for.  In fact, a good travel agent won’t have to be asked!  If you’re going on your own, ask the Disney cast member when you call to do the same. I say this all the time, but it bears repeating:  Be aware that when you call Disney directly, they frequently won’t run discounts unless asked, so make sure you’re armed with the latest discount information before you call.  If you’re using the Disney website, information on discounts is often listed at the bottom of the website.  I tell people to run a full-priced quote first so that they can compare it to their discounted offer.

While the above information is universal, the next question you have to ask is entirely a personal one:  Will you actually use the plan? If you’re a light eater, possibly not.  If you’re the type of guest who goes all day and doesn’t want to stop, or if  you have small children and you don’t feel comfortable scheduling a lot of sit-down restaurants, the idea of being tied to a dining plan which requires you to stop what you’re doing and eat may be too much of an interference. Personally, I need a nice sit down meal every day at Disney. I like the food and I like the break, but not everyone tours the parks that way.  Finally, being on the dining plan means you’ll need to make at least some of your dining reservations months ahead of time. Not everyone likes planning their meals that far out!  So take a look at how you travel. If you’re like me, the dining plan can save you money. But if you’re a more “commando” guest, it might not.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Playing the Disney Discount Game Part II: Making Discounts Work.

Boardwalk quiet pool with view of the Dolphin Resort.

Today is kind of unusual because it’s the day after current Disney World discounts ended and there are no major discounts available at the resort.  This doesn’t happen that often anymore. This is because in recent years, Disney has regularly released discounted rooms and free dining promotions, so we anticipate that a new group of discounts will come out soon, possibly sometime next week (and if you’re betting, bet on Tuesday, the day Disney usually releases discounts).   When discounts are released, there are two things you should keep in mind:  One, getting the discount as soon as possible since they are limited; and two, finding out which discount works best for you. Free dining may seem like a great deal, but if you’re a light eater, it might not be. Likewise, a room discount at a value resort with four guests staying in the room is worth a fraction of what you’d save if you got free dining. 

If you take one thing from this post, remember that you can book a room and apply the discount later. This secures your room and saves time when you transfer to a discount in the future.  When discounts are announced, hold times can approach two to three hours, so having your room and information in the system gives you some security and speeds up the process.  It also guarantees that you’ll have a room regardless of what happens.  You can apply discounts to either full-priced rooms or rooms for which you’ve already recieved a discount, but you can only receive one type of discount at a time.

I work under the assumption that any discount is better than no discount, so if there’s a discount out for your travel dates, take it.  You can’t predict what Disney will do in the future, but if something comes out later that works better for you, you can change your room to that discount code.  For example, I currently have several clients who’ve booked room-only reservations for late spring and early fall.  These are good discounts, saving them around 20 to 25 precent off rack rate, but since these clients are annual pass holders, we’re waiting on AP discounts which will save them anywhere from 10 to 15 percent more. Once these discounts are announced, I’ll simply switch them.

A few caveats to remember when you switch discounts:

1)  All discounts are limited so you or your travel agent should apply them the day they come out. This is particularly true of free dining promotions which will sell out very quickly and are part of the reason for the two to three hour waits I mentioned above.  If you’re working with a travel agent, it’s her job to provide this service to you, stay on top of these announcements, and apply the ones that work best for you. You shouldn’t have to ask. 

2)  Don’t do this stupid guest trick (and yes, I’ll admit to doing this years ago):  Never cancel one discount booking until you’re sure you can get the new one and that it meets your needs.  Run all the numbers and remember that all discounts have end booking dates. The latter is especially important because you can’t go back and re-book under that promotion once it’s over.

3)  For packages, you can change your reservation and discount code up to 45-days before travel without penalty.  If you change your reservation within the 45-day window, you’ll be charged a $50 change fee, but if you save more than that, it’s worth it.  For room-only reservations, you may change up to six-days before you travel, so you have a little more freedom to change without penalty. If you do change within the penalty period, you’ll be charged a $50 change fee.

Next, consider what type of discounts work for you and your travel party.  Discounts usually come in two forms: Room-only or free dining.  Often, these offers are out at the same time. Don’t assume one is better than the other or get swayed by the language of the offer. Instead, have Disney or your travel agent run all discounts that are available during your travel time.  Pay attention to the small details. It’s easy to get swayed by a promotion like “Kids Stay and Play Free” until you realize that kids staying with their parents always stay free. While the “playing” part of the promotion is a great deal, allowing kids 3-9 to visit the parks for free with a paying adult, it still might not be as good as a room-only discount at a deluxe resort. It really does pay to take some extra time to compare every deal.

One final word.  Always make sure that you ask Disney what discounts are available when you call.  You need to let them know that you’re interested in booking under these codes. You don’t need to know the specific code, but you do need to ask outright what discounts are available.  If you’re on the Disney site, these can be hard to find and sometimes it can be difficult to discern, even when you think you’ve found one, whether or not you’re actually getting a discounted offer.  For this reason, I always advise people to run the full-price package first so can compare.

Next up, I’ll look at whether or not free dining is a good deal.

The Disney World Discount Game, Part I: Types of Discounts.

It’s a Friday before current Disney World discounts end (specifically, on March 27th), which means there’s a great deal of speculation out as to what the newest discounts will be. If you’re a frequent Disney guest or you’re just being budget conscious, you’ve probably played what I call the Disney discount game:  Searching the Internet or asking your travel agent for discounts, booking and re-booking, to save the most money.  The game can be fun when you find a great deal, but it can also lead to a lot of frustration.  Here is first part of a three-part series on Disney discounts.

There are five main types of discounts: 

1)  General public discounts.  The most common discounts released by Disney, they’re available to everyone and are usually in the form of resort room discounts or free dining. Watch for black out dates and booking periods. Most often, these discounts are available during slower times of the year, so don’t expect to see this type of code during Christmas break, Easter break, or mid-summer. 

2)  Annual Pass discounts.  These are room discounts available to annual passholders. These usually come out weeks or even months after the GP discount for the same time period.  Most often, they are for 5 – 10 percent higher than GP discounts, but they’re also offered for a much more limited number of rooms so book when they come out.

3)  Pin Codes.  Pin codes are the stuff of legends on  Disney message boards because they can be pretty difficult to get.  Briefly, a pin code is a discount code that is personal to you.  You simply go to Disney’s website and sign up.  Then, you wait for a code to come to your email or home address.  Sometimes it comes, sometimes . . . it doesn’t.  Urban legend has it that you’ll be more likely to get a code if you play around with the reservation system after you sign up so that Disney knows you’re looking to book a vacation. You can also sign up your spouse and try to double your chances.  If you’re traveling with a group, sign up every adult in the group as well, as you normally can book up to three rooms per code, as long as the main person on the pin code is the main contact. 

Pin codes are normally a better deal than what’s available to the general public and often a hint of what Disney will release later that year to everyone.  As with the general public codes, make sure you pay attention to black out dates and booking periods.

4)  Military discounts.  Military discounts are, without question, the best discounts available right now. These are available to both retired and active duty members.  If you are a reservist who has served on active duty in the past year, you may also qualify; see your MWR office for details, as these often change.  You’ll need to show a military ID at check-in and when you buy tickets.  Room rates average around 40% off.  Right now the current ticket option is for a four-day park hopper for $138 per person (no discount for children), which is a great savings.  Unfortunately, you can’t add more days to this admission ticket, but you normally can add water park days.

You can’t book military discounted rooms online, so you’ll need to contact your travel agent or call Disney directly.  I’ve found the cast members at booking to be extra helpful with these packages.

5)  Florida resident discounts.  These discounts are available to Florida residents only. They’re usually for resort rooms and often, just a few resorts will participate, for example, one moderate and two deluxe resorts. They tend to come out just a month or so before travel.  Don’t forget to ask about special park admission discounts during certain times of the year. These are usually in the form of three-day parkhoppers.

Next up, I’ll talk about how to play the Disney discount game.
