As from today I’ll be launching a new section of my blog called ‘deals of the day’ in which I’ll post some deals I’ve found on hotels, flights and park tickets in the Orlando area. I may also throw in a collection of deals from other theme park destinations around the world, but the focus will be on the Sunshine State.
Both of today’s deals come from hotels.com, a website which has becoming increasingly popular with looking for a bargain hotel when booking the various components of their trip separately.
Gaylord Palms deal:
Gaylord Palms is a very popular hotel amongst visitors to the Orlando-area, mainly due to its high quality and proximity to all the major attractions at Walt Disney World. There’s certainly a deal to be had with hotels.com offering standard rooms on select dates at £100 per room per night, down from £181. Based on four people sharing the room that’s just £25 per night per person, an incredible price when you consider that Gaylord Palms provides quality to the same standard as many of Walt Disney Worlds Deluxe Resorts.
The Palms Hotel and Villas Deal:
It must be something with having ‘Palms’ in the name but this lower quality offering is also great value, especially for the budget traveller looking for something with a little more for their money. The Palms Hotel and Villas is a three star resort according to hotels.com, with a usual price of £58 on the dates I selected (April 15th-25th) the discounted price of just £35 is a bargain in anyones eyes. The hotel also has a great location, just outside Walt Disney World close to Wide World of Sports and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
These deals were based on ten-day stays between April 15th and April 25th. Whilst this isn’t the busiest time of the year many schools are off for Spring break, meaning these prices can be considered a bargain for those looking to avoid summer crowds and prices by taking a break in the Spring.
