    Which discounts does WDW accept? We know DVC does at select locations. Just wondering if there might be anything else like senior discounts, ect.

    Hello there Michelle and welcome to planDisney!

    Being able to snag some great savings is always great at any age and I'm definitely not one to pass up a good deal when I find one. When it comes to being able to take advantage of a senior citizen discount at Walt Disney World Resort, I confirmed with a Guest Relations Cast Member that there currently aren't any direct discounts aimed specifically at seniors. That said, they suggested a few different ways that you may still be able to get one in a few different ways:

    • If you're a member with a group like AARP, it's a good idea to check their Member Benefits as some operating partners who are also third-party vendors at Walt Disney World Resort may be able to extend a discount when you inquire with them directly. An example of this could be the Rainforest Cafe, which is operated by Landry's, Inc. alongside locations such as T-REX and even Yak & Yeti Restaurant located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park where I've personally been able to take advantage of discounted meals through Landry's Select Club membership.
    • Some of the more common discounts are provided to guests who are Annual Passholders, though this does not necessarily extend to every merchandise or dining location. In fact, I constantly observe guests asking and confirming with each purchase as these discounts are always subject to change without prior notice, and tend to vary depending on whether it is a Walt Disney World Resort-owned-and-operated merchandise or dining location or a third-party operator.
    • It's always a good idea to check the Special Offers, Deals and Discounts available on the Walt Disney World Resort website to see the latest offerings that are often updated and appear without any formal announcement; these have recently included offers for members for Canadian residents, U.S. Military Members, Florida Residents and even Disney+ subscribers. 
    I hope that this helps Michelle, but I highly recommend confirming whenever you can on your upcoming visit as the information provided by Cast Members does tend to be subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed with any discounts offered which are often subject to change without prior notice. A great resource is the Disney Parks Blog, but don't hesitate to come back to planDisney again for other tips or tricks!

    Here's to seizing the day with some great savings!
