I started to post an April Fools Joke about Free Dining at Disney World, but I decided not to. Why? Because of the April Fools Joke that Disney has played on all of us today.
Late last night, Disney announced the next round of discounts for the summer months. Here they are –
- 25% off on rooms at the Wilderness Lodge, the Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Polynesian Resort
- 30% off other Deluxe and Deluxe Villa rooms
The discounts are good on travel from April 22 through August 13 and must be booked by 4/28 for dates 4/22 – 5/28 and 5/28 for 5/29 though 8/13.
That’s it. No discounts on the Value Resorts, no discounts on the Moderate Resorts, no free dining, no …
(I’ve already heard about people that tried to get the discounts and only upgraded views were available.)
I’m sure lots of people are going to think this is a Disney April Fools Joke but it’s not. Last year, the head honchos at Disney talked about reducing the use of discounts and they are finally putting that into effect. It’s disappointing.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Yes, we all want to save money. We all got addicted to Free Dining (another of Disney’s evil plans). We are addicted to Disney Discounts after 4 straight years of great deals. It looks like that is finally coming to an end. The Death of Free Dining.
