Florida Residents Stay, Play and Dine at Walt Disney World Resort for One Great Price

New Fall Offer Means Extra Special Savings for Florida Residents

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla., June 3 /PRNewswire/ — Exciting new attractions and shows are in full swing for the “Happiest Celebration on Earth” — the biggest four-park premiere ever at Walt Disney World Resort.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Or the savings.

Thanks to a special offer that can be booked now through July 19, Florida residents can save nearly 30 percent off the non-discounted price of the “Magic Your Way Package Plus Dining” — a Walt Disney World vacation that includes hotel room, theme park tickets and dining — all for one great rate. With the “Florida Resident Stay, Play and Dine Package,” for $255 per adult, Florida residents receive:

* Three nights at a select Walt Disney World value resort.
* Admission to a Walt Disney World theme park on each of three days.

* The Disney Dining Plan, providing one counter-service meal, a select snack and one table-service meal per person, per night of the package. Guests can choose from more than 100 select Walt Disney World restaurants.

* For those guests arriving by air at Orlando International Airport, Disney’s Magical Express service, providing complimentary round-trip ground transportation and luggage delivery to their rooms.

* Plus other benefits, like Extra Magic Hours, in which one of the four Walt Disney World theme parks opens one hour early or stays open up to three hours later, allowing extra time in the parks to experience select attractions.

Prices are based on adult double occupancy in a standard room.

That means, for only $85 per night/per adult, Florida residents can stay, play and dine at Walt Disney World Resort for three days and nights. And don’t forget the kids! Guests on this package can add up to two children in the same room for only $105 per child (ages 3-9) — just $35 per child/per night — or $129 per junior (ages 10-12) — just $43 per junior/per night.

At those rates, a Florida-resident family of four can enjoy a three-day, three-night Walt Disney World vacation — including accommodations at a Disney Value Resort, theme park tickets and the Disney Dining Plan — for as little as $720.

The “Florida Resident Stay, Play and Dine Package” is good for stays most nights from Aug. 21-Oct. 4, 2005; however, the number of packages available is limited. Travel must be booked by July 19. Guests can also ask about special pricing on packages with other lengths of stay or packages at Disney moderate- or select deluxe-category resorts.

“This package serves to enhance the spectacular benefits that Florida residents receive already under the new ‘Magic Your Way’ ticket program,” said Al Weiss, president of Walt Disney World Resort. “Guests can stay, play and dine at one great rate. And the timing couldn’t be better. Past the busy summer vacation months, fall is a wonderful season to come and experience all that’s new.”

Walt Disney World Resort has posted special values for fall travel for several years running, Weiss noted, but the “Florida Resident Stay, Play and Dine Package” provides a more inclusive, cruise-style vacation that adds extra convenience for guests.

The “Happiest Celebration on Earth” is an 18-month event celebrating 50 years of Disney theme park magic that started with the 1955 opening of California’s Disneyland.

Guests to the Florida Vacation Kingdom this fall will find incredible new experiences imported from Disney parks around the world for the “Happiest Celebration on Earth.”

* At Epcot: Soarin’, a breathtaking flight over the golden landscape of the Golden State of California.

* At Disney-MGM Studios: “Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show,” taking guests into moviemaking and the high-revving world of stunt car driving.

* At Magic Kingdom: “Cinderellabration,” a magical musical stage show filled with the pomp and pageantry of Cinderella’s coronation.
