Walt Disney World Discounts Rooms Up to 25% in Anticipation of Pandora – The World of Avatar

New TV Spot for Pandora - The World of Avatar Released

Disney really wants you to visit Walt Disney World this summer, and they’ve just announced a surprise sale on rooms to make you an offer that you might not be able to refuse. The promotion ties in with Pandora – The World of Avatar, and comes days after the company sent out direct mail pieces announcing Extra Magic Hours for the highly-anticipated Animal Kingdom expansion.

The offer was sent out this morning to Disney travel agents, and states that Guests can save up to 25% on most nights from May 28, 2017 through August 31, 2017. The booking window to take advantage of this offer is March 27, 2017 through July 14, 2017.

Disney World Discounts | Summer 2017

It’s clear that Disney is really making a huge promotional push for “Avatar Land,” even if they have little trouble filling rooms during the summer season.

What About Free Dining in 2017?

One of the most popular specials in Walt Disney World is the Free Dining promotion. Guests are given the Disney Dining Plan for free when they stay on property. There has been no announcement of a Free Dining promotion so far this year, although that doesn’t mean that there won’t be one. Historically the Free Dining promotion is for dates that Disney considers “off season,” such as the Fall months. Free Dining is usually announced in March or April, although this promotion may push that announcement back — or nix Free Dining altogether.

Will Pandora – The World of Avatar Be Worth It?

Disney is pushing Pandora very, very hard. And they do have a lot riding on the expansion. This is the first major theme park expansion focused on one movie universe, and it’s not even a Disney-owned IP. Clearly they’re trying to one up Harry Potter and friends across town at Universal. Knowing that, Disney can’t afford for Avatar to be a misfire and I’m sure Imagineering is throwing everything they’ve got at the project.

So the short answer is yes, Pandora will most likely be very worth the wait and it’s something you should try and see for yourself this summer. Apparently Disney agrees.

How Can You Get the Room Discount?

To take advantage is this room sale, you can contact your Disney travel agent or call Disney directly. We recommend dealing with a travel agent, however, as they can make you aware of even better offers as they become available. It doesn’t cost any more to use an agent than it does to book the vacation yourself, and they’re especially useful if you’ve never taken a trip to Walt Disney World before.

Pandora – The World of Avatar opens on May 27, 2017. The Kingdom Insider will continue coverage leading up to its opening, so stay tuned for more!
