    Need help trying to figure out best options (discount hotel rate or free meal plan) for a large family (11)group traveling to Disney world

    Hi Rebecca,

    How exciting that you’re planning a Disney vacation with so many loved ones! You’re going to LOVE experiencing the magic together and I’m sure you’ll cherish the memories for years to come!

    While there are discounts available for large groups, they require that your group stay in 10 or more Disney Resort hotel rooms for at least one night. Since I’m guessing your group won’t need quite that much space, I’d encourage you to keep an eye on the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts page instead. You’ll find some great ways to stretch your Disney dollars there! While we can never be sure what discounts Disney will offer in the future, to find out what kinds of offers have been made available at different times of the year in precious years, I’d encourage you to go to MouseSavers.com and look for their historical discounts page. I’m wishing on a star for you that the perfect special offer will come along for your group!

    Would you like a few other money-saving tips? First, Family Suites at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort or Disney’s Art of Animation Resort each sleep six Guests, so two of those would fit your group perfectly. They also offer kitchenettes, so you could save some money by preparing some of your own meals. Plus, did you know that you’re able to bring your own food and drinks into the theme parks? Packing snacks, water bottles, or even some sandwiches could save your group quite a bit! Finally, I’d encourage you to check out the brand new Mid-Day Magic Tickets, which offer a great way to enjoy the theme parks with lower-priced tickets.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Rebecca, and please come back and see us again if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you and all of your fellow Mouseketeers have a truly magical vacation!
