Thanks for tuning into the Pixie Dust Podcast! In this episode, we explore three different scenarios for booking a trip to Walt Disney World for a family of four. Just because the parks are closed right now, doesn’t mean that you have to stop planning! Disney is still taking reservations for June first and beyond. With just a $200, fully refundable deposit, you can secure your reservation, and begin planning your fast passes and dining reservations for arrivals this summer. The final balance is due thirty days before departure and you can make as many payments as needed without penalty. 

In all three scenarios, we look at pricing for a family of four, two adults and two children ages eight and twelve. All packages include a four-night, five-day stay, four-day base park tickets, Disney Dining Plan, and memory maker. In this case, we are looking at a Disney Value Resort, All-Star Music. 

The first scenario is early June, this scenario would be if you are looking to go to the parks right when they open back up. This is peak season, however, Disney has released a summer room discount that is available on reservations that fall between June first and August thirty first. With this promotion, this vacation package total is $3,696. 

The second scenario takes place in early fall, Mid-August. The room discount promotion is still applicable in this reservation, however, the price is slightly lower since we are heading into the “off-peak” season. This package total is $3,434 for the exact same reservation. 

In the final scene, we look at Mid - November. The promotion has not yet been released for this time frame, however, should promotion be released this summer, it can still be applied to your reservation if applicable even if booked before the promotion is released. This package with standard pricing is $3,732. 

There are over twenty-five different resorts on the property at Disney World and this is just one example of vacation packages, with many options available to fit your family’s needs! There’s no better time to visit Disney World, with the chaos of day to day life, why not escape to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
