    I just read on DFB that there are senior discounts for park passes, restaurants, for purchasing merchandise…. Is this true? If so, does it only apply to the senior or all in their party that they are paying for?

    Hey there, hi there, Paul! Welcome, and thank you for your question.

    As we like to say, everyone's a kid again at Walt Disney World, so, unfortunately, there are no discounts through Disney on theme park tickets or Disney Resorts Collection hotels for senior citizens. You should, however, look into organizations you may belong to, like AARP. They do occasionally have discounts and offers related to a Walt Disney World vacation, so you may be able to score some deals that way.

    Walt Disney World also always has Special Offers, Deals & Discounts that you may be eligible to take advantage of. These may include resort discounts or package discounts that make your vacation a bit more affordable. 

    Also look into other options, like AAA, which does sometimes offer discounts on Walt Disney World vacations, or even Costco Travel, which sometimes runs deals. A sure-fire way to get a little discount is by purchasing Disney Gift Cards through Target using your Red Card. They offer a 5% discount on purchases, which then translates into a 5% discount on the things you use the cards on at Disney World. And if you have a Disney Visa card, you'll find you get some dining and merchandise discounts with that - plus you can accumulate rewards with each purchase.

    One other tip, Paul. Check out some of the many dining experiences available at Walt Disney World. Some of the restaurants are owned by companies that have reward clubs. If you join the club, you may get a discount, a free appetizer, or even priority seating. 

    Happy planning, Paul!
