Downtown Disney Rewards Travel Industry Employees


Downtown Disney Resort Area Hotels are offering special rates for all hospitality workers who visit through Sept. 30.

“Travel industry employees work hard year-round to ensure that visitors enjoy their travel experiences, and they certainly deserve recognition for their contributions to the traveling public,” says Marti Alexander, chairperson of the Downtown Disney Resort Area Hotels’ marketing committee. “There’s no better way to salute them than with special savings for their own travel.”

Travel Industry Appreciation Days at the seven official Walt Disney World resorts is being offered in conjunction with the Second Summer destination-wide promotion by Visit Orlando that features travel deals from Aug. 15 through Sept. 30. Travel industry employees who wish to take advantage of the Downtown Disney Resort Area Hotels’ hospitality workers’ discount must show proof of employment with either a photo identification card or a current paycheck stub. Employees from hotels, restaurants, airlines, airports, attractions, rental car companies, cruise lines, tour operators and other travel companies are eligible for the savings.

Some sample deals include rates starting at $55 per night, including daily continental breakfast for two at Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel; 20 percent off best available rates at Hilton Orlando Resort; and rates starting at $59 per night at Royal Plaza Resort.

Guests staying at these hotels also receive special privileges such as complimentary transportation to all four Disney theme parks, advanced tee times and discounts at all four Disney championship golf courses and more. For more information, visit
