The cost of a Disney World vacation can run up fast. The good news for teachers is here are some extra special discounts teachers can use at Disney World! We also highly recommend asking about any discounts that may be available when booking anything from your hotel, rental car, tickets and more!
Remember discounts are always subject to change.
Hotel & Resort Discounts
Disney Springs Hotels
Six of the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels are celebrating first responders and teachers by offering special booking rates as low as $79. Booking with the special rates is open now until July 10th for stays between now and July 14th. Proof of employment or supporting ID is required at check-in. This offer includes the following hotels:
- B Resort & Spa
- Double Tree Suites by Hilton
- Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace
- Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista
- Holiday Inn
- Wyndham Garden Inn Lake Buena Vista
Preschool, daycare, K-12, and college teachers plus school support staff can book under the “teacher” rates. U.S. police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), paramedics, 911 dispatchers, doctors, and nurses all qualify for the “first responder” rates.
Teachers and first responders who take advantage of these rates will also receive a “Passport to Savings” booklet with discounts and specials for select Disney Springs entertainment, shopping, and dining.
Florida teachers can enjoy a Teacher Appreciation Rate which includes a 20% savings plus a daily $50 Resort Credit when using the above link.
Florida educators along with any school employee from any Florida school district are eligible to take advantage of the Educator Rate of $45 per night plus tax. Please call 407-396-2222 and ask for the Educator Rate. On top of the discounted rate, the standard $10 per night resort fee has been waived.
Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort
In appreciation for all that you do, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort would like to offer you a very special room rate for your next vacation to the most magical place in the world…the Walt Disney World® Resort!
Book online or call 1-888-828-8850 and ask for our Teacher rate.
*Rates are per room, per night based on availability and do not include the mandatory Resort Service Package, daily parking fees (if applicable), applicable taxes, or gratuities. Not valid with any other special offers, promotions, existing reservations, or for groups. All teachers and school support staff must show proof of employment upon arrival.
Union Discounts and Ticket Savings
If you are part of a teacher’s union check in with them and see what sorts of discounts they offer on tickets and hotels. Then it is a good idea to compare if they beat the deals you can get with a package, AAA, or even Undercover Tourist.
Discounts Direct from Disney
Disney does offer discounts to teachers who participate with their students in one of the Disney Youth Series Education Classes.
These are a classes you can bring your students that take place all over the Disney World parks as well as Disneyland.

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
