About your free ticket:
If your Disney World vacation will be a minimum of four days, you will receive an extra ticket to the parks free if you upgrade to the Magic Your Way ticket package. For example, if you book a 5-day trip, you pay for four and your fifth day will be free. However, this only applies to tickets and not to your hotel stay.
How to get most out of your discount:
In order to receive this magical discount, guests must first click on the Special Offers button located towards the bottom of the Walt Disney World website. Once there, click on the "Check Availability" button on the right hand side of the screen. Doing so will allow you to receive the discounts mentioned above. If you were to go directly to your desired resort to book your reservation, the discount will not be automatically applied.
However, you can skip all the guess work and simply call a Disney Cast Member to book your Disney vacation over the phone. Their number is (407) 939-7716.
If you're really looking to get the most for your money, book your trip during the second block of dates. With a new parade scheduled to start in the Magic Kingdom in April 2014 along with the opening of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride in March 2014, it is better to go towards the end of the promotional offer as it increases your chance of seeing both new additions to the park.
