Are you a teacher or first responder looking for a magical vacation this summer? Well–now is your chance as Walt Disney World is offering tempting discounts to government employees within Disney Springs.
The special offers apply to six Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels and will run through to July 14, according to the shopping district’s website.
Teachers and first responders will be able to pick between a stay at B Resort & Spa, DoubleTree Suites, Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, Holiday Inn and Wyndham Garden for a reduced cost.
The six Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels are within walking distance of Disney Springs (formerly known as Downtown Disney), which is an outdoor complex that is dedicated to shopping, dining and entertainment.
Depending on the hotel that’s selected, nightly rates can be as low as $79 or as high as $160.
Bus shuttles to Walt Disney World theme parks and a “Passport to Savings” booklet are included with booked stays, which provides eligible guests discounts and promotions from merchants at Disney Springs. The House of Blues Restaurant & Bar, T-REX Café, Rainforest Café, The Polite Pig and STK Orlando are just a few merchants that have coupons available in the booklet.
If you happen to be a teacher or first responder who also loves a good game of golf, you have to take advantage of advance tee times and other discounts at Walt Disney World’s three golf courses.
Teachers and first responders who are interested in staying at Disney this summer have until July 10 to book their “magical family vacation,” according to the Disney Springs hotel website.
The special room rates can only be obtained by preschool, daycare, grade school teachers, college professors and support staff, police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, 911 dispatchers, doctors, and nurses.
