7 Spring Getaway Specials for Families Heading to Walt Disney World


If you’re thinking of making a trip to visit The Mouse this spring, you aren’t alone! Many of us are ditching the cold weather to visit Mickey at the “most magical place on Earth.” There are some fabulous spring events that are coming up in the next few weeks including:

– Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, Presented by HGTV — March 5 – May 18, 2014

– Flower Power Concert Series — March 5 – May 18, 2014, at Epcot

– Star Wars Weekends — Friday – Sunday each weekend from May 16 – June 15, 2014, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

– Seven Dwarfs Mine Train — opening in spring 2014 at Magic Kingdom Park

Unfortunately, if you’re booking last minute, you’ll find that the rates are quite high for accommodations. Discounted rates and coupon codes are usually issued at the beginning of the year and apply to a certain date range. If you happened to miss the range, there’s still a way to save a bundle on accommodations!

There are plenty of properties both on-site and in close proximity to Disney World.  The following Downtown Disney resort area hotels offer special perks such as advance tee times for WDW golf courses, a deal booklet for exclusive discounts and special offers from over 30 merchants for Downtown Disney area dining, entertainment and shopping.
