Disney World 2016 Packages


Earlier this week Walt Disney World announced details about packages that can be booked starting in 2016. While most of the packages remain the same there are some changes to make note of if you’re looking to book a disney vacation package in 2016. Disney calls their vacation packages “Magic Your Way” which combines hotel, park tickets and optional dining packages + additional add ons.

Disney vacation packages themselves won’t save you that much money, the money savings comes in when they announce various seasonal discounts on rooms, packages or even free dining. Let’s take a look at some of the changes that are taking place for Magic Your Way packages for 2016.

Magic Your Way 2016 Changes

What’s New?

  • Starting next year if you book a disney vacation package you’ll be receiving 4 miniature golf vouchers (instead of 2 last year) that are good for use at Winter Summerland and Fantasia Gardens miniature golf. 
  • Four vouchers for entry into the ESPN Wide World of Sports. Probably not too much of a benefit for most people but I guess nice to have.
  • The premium package has added in-room child care in addition to being available in the platinum package.

Removed for 2016

Unfortunately the reduced benefits are much greater than the benefits that were added for this year.

  • An appetizer is no longer included with the deluxe dining plan when dining at full service restaurants.
  • Disney Quest tickets are no longer included.
  • Various food and merchandise discounts are no longer available, see the new full list below.

As a reminder when you book a vacation package you receive the following discounts

  1. Big Woop! Disney is pricing families out of a nice vacation. The add ons……who really uses them? People do the PARKS! Period!

  2. I am more interested in prices of parks and hopper passes!
