It’s not a discount but a type of package that may or may not save you any money, depending how you like to stay and eat.
They’ve usually been 5 nights, 6 days for 4 people at certain resorts.
Many people find they can eat better and less-expensively by paying for meals. It’s important to look over some menus and calculate what your family might order, comparing a day or two of meals with what you could order on the dining plan you’d have. If staying at a Value, you’d get only the 2-meal Quick Service plan. Staying at a Moderate or Deluxe, the regular plan of 1QS and 1TS per person per day. If your family rarely books a table service meal, that dining plan may not suit you at all.
Generally speaking, any package will not save money over a room-only reservation, buying tickets and meals separately.
And these “special” package deals are usually on upgraded rooms that haven’t booked, often ones with just a better view. A perfectly fine standard view room will cost somewhat less, and buying park tickets through a third party like Undercover Tourist can save you far more oftentimes than these package deals.
We’ve gotten some great package deals but only because it was just two of us wanting a Deluxe resort fancy room. And the Deluxe dining plan works well for our oink-oink eating, so we paid a bit extra to upgrade the regular to it.
That’s why I say these package “deals” are deals only if you have out-of-the-ordinary preferences.
