New Spring Discount Released For Travel April 12 Through June 6, 2009

by on March 13, 2009

Mousesavers.com has breaking news on a new Walt Disney World discount covering travel dates from April 12 through June 6. Rates are as low as $68 per night (plus tax) for value resorts, and $169 and up for high-end properties such as Animal Kingdom Lodge and Old Key West.

There are blackout dates around holidays, and availability is supposed to be very limited. Travel must be booked by April 12. Also, we hear that these are available as both room-only and package discounts.

Our contacts at Small World Vacations and Mouse Fan Travel have done the math, and seem to think this discount is best for families visiting five nights or fewer. Depending on the resorts and dates, this may be a better offer than the current “Buy-4-Get-7″ deal for those five-night stays, especially if you’re in a standard-view room. It also makes sense for families who don’t have another discount available.
