For more information that will help you plan your next trip, you can also follow along with our monthly Walt Disney World updates series. Each month we cover reopenings, new rides and shows, refurbishments and more! Let’s dive into an overview of the Disney Vacation Packages 2023 has to offer.
Disney Vacation Packages 2023
2023 Disney vacation packages are now available to book online or through your travel planner. You are able to just book a room or a package which consists of room and tickets. Online you can start with the Build Your Vacation bar up top on the Disney World website. This prompts potential visitors to start by choosing dates, the number of adults and children in the travel party and hotel preference. From there you can search through hotel availability. The next step will be adding tickets and extra options like park hopping if you so choose.
Renting Hotel Rooms vs Booking with DVC Points
After a quick search for four week nights in August of 2023, results brought back a rate of around $2300 before taxes for a stay at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Results will vary, of course, and this doesn’t include any discounts that someone might be eligible for like Florida Resident, Annual Passholder or Disney Chase Visa. If you’re a regular Disney goer that goes every year or every other, you might want to consider Disney Vacation Club. Even if DVC seemed out of your budget upon first glance, resale DVC might be the perfect fit. Resale contracts are sold by Members, not Disney, and are much more affordable. Buyers often save thousands with resale. And if you’re already committing to going to stay at Disney regularly, or want to, this could be a much better spend. For example, as of June 2022, resale contracts at Disney’s Beach Club Villas are going for around $171 per point in price depending on the size of the contract. Contracts with high point values typically go for a little less per point and contracts with less points are priced a little higher per point. It’s worth considering that a small 75 point resale DVC contract can be bought for around $14,000. If you’re paying between $2000 and $3000 for the hotel on one short vacation and could pay $14,000 for many years of vacations, it’s time to get out the calculator. Note there are also annual dues to consider but resale DVC still comes out ahead in most cases. Disney vacation packages are exciting but getting an excellent price on years of Deluxe hotel stays is even better.
