    Do you offer any accommodations for widows and orphans?

    Hiya, Donald!

    Welcome back to planDisney! I am so delighted to see that you have returned with another great planning question. There is a wonderful variety of Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotels that offer fabulous accommodations for travel parties of all ages. If you are traveling with children, two of my favorite recommendations are Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's Beach Club Resort. Art of Animation offers fun character-theming, value-priced family suits, and access to the Disney Skyliner. Convenient transportation is essential when adventuring with young travelers. Disney's Beach Club Resort is walking distance from Epcot and the Disney Skyliner, and has the best pool at Walt Disney World Resort! Stormalong Bay is three acres with a lazy river, waterslide, and play area for younger children. There are over 30 uniquely-themed hotels to choose from with amazing options for all budgets. And while there are no specific discounts for widows/orphans, I do have some great tips on how to save on your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Donald, you can find a list of all the current special offers available on the Special Offers, Deals, & Discounts page of the Walt Disney World website. The promotions change throughout the year, so if you don't see an offer for your upcoming travel dates, be sure to keep checking back. Should a promotion become available for your resort hotel and travel timeframe, you can easily add the discount online through My Disney Experience under the My Plans tab. Next to your vacation package details will be a Change Reservation link. Select this to apply any discounts that may be available for you. Click the Change link located by Vacation Offer on the next page. If you are able to apply any promotions to your package, you will be able to do so in just a few additional easy steps. You can also add special offers by speaking to a friendly Cast Member with Disney Resort Hotel Reservations

    I also recommend checking with your local retailers. Warehouse locations will sometimes offer Disney gift cards at a discounted rate. This is a great way to easily save money on your upcoming trip. And grocery/big box stores may offer discounts on gift card purchases when using their store credit/debit card. Target is a great location for this option. Another way to save is the Disney Premier Visa Card. I've had some great success getting special offers and discounts with this option. This also comes with cardmember perks like merchandise discounts, so you can save even more during your magical stay! 

    I hope that these tips help you continue to plan the best trip ever!
    We'll see ya real soon!
