6 Disney Hotel Hacks for Your Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Vacation
Know your options.
Did you know that there are currently over 25 (yes, you read that right) different Disney resorts that are available to book when traveling to Disney.
That is a TON of options to filter through to try to find the best deal possible.
Don’t limit yourself to just one or two when exploring all that are available.
Take the time to research and compare the prices of the resorts to see which one fits your budget the best.
3rd Party Bookings…Actually, yeah.
Use a third-party source (like Secret Escapes) to book your Disney stay.
Here’s the deal. When you book directly with Disney, they have their set prices.
They don’t have to necessarily negotiate with individuals because….well, they’re Disney.
But third parties are known for offering a bit more competitive prices. Always check third-party sites to see if you can get a more competitive pricing.
Even if you save only $10 per night, that’s $10’s you wouldn’t have to spend on something else amazing during your trip to Disney.
Give camping a try over the conventional hotel resort options.
Did you now that Disney has their own campground?
If you don’t mind a bit of tent camping, you can save a bit of money by camping out under the stars with your family during your vacation to Disney.
Pack up your tent and get ready for a true family vacation.
Tent sites start at $55 per night, which can be a HUGE savings compared to the possible hundreds being spent for hotel rooms.
Why not make an adventure out of it?
Credit Card Discounts? Well, yes please.
Check with your credit cards to see if they offer a way to pay for your Disney resort stay with points.
If you have a credit card where you’ve been racking up the travel points, why not use them to save on your lodging fees when vacationing at Disney?
Those points can sure come in handy if they are helping to knock out or even knock down those lodging costs that can add up super quick.
Just think how much money you could possibly save if you were able to use your credit card points to cover 2-3 nights of your hotel fees?!
Best vacation ever.
Pay attention to the discount offers directly from Disney.
Occasionally, Disney will offer discounted room rates during their off-season times to try to get more tourists to visit.
You have to be quick to get those discounts, though, so keep your eyes peeled.
They don’t last long and are often for a limited time when offered.
While this doesn’t happen necessarily every year, be prepared to book those rooms if they do offer any type of discounts in the future!
Two Hotels? I just might.
Be open to splitting your lodging between a couple of different resorts.
If you don’t mind moving from one resort to another during your trip to Disney, you may be able to book one hotel for one savings price, and then book another resort for the remainder of the days for a different discount.
Pay attention to the fine print and for how many days discounts are good for, and if you can split your time between multiple resorts to save money, do so!
Do your research and search high and low to find those Disney Resort discounts!
They are out there, it just may take a bit more effort on your part to uncover them.
Choose the resort and location that works best for you and your budget, book, and get ready to have an epic vacation at the happiest place on Earth!
You’ll be smiling ear to ear with how great of a deal you were able to secure for your Disney lodging…
