Disney theme parks and hotels provide more than hope and illusion; they provide employment for people from across the country – including first responders. Even during an outbreak of coronavirus, there are ways frontline workers can experience Disney magic without paying full price for tickets and accommodations.
Frontline employees can save on vacation to Disney World or Disneyland by taking advantage of discounts such as those provided through GovX, Heroes Vacation Club and CityPass which all provide special promotions for qualifying first responders, police officers, firefighters, EMTs and medical professionals.
This summer, six Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels are honoring educators and first responders with special room rates starting from just $79 a night, subject to availability until July 14th. This special offer is valid until then. Eligible educators include preschool, daycare, kindergarten and grade school teachers as well as college professors and support staff. First responders include U.S. police officers, firefighters, EMTs (emergency medical technicians), paramedics, 911 dispatchers, doctors and nurses. Staying at a Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel provides additional benefits, including bus shuttles to Walt Disney World theme parks and a “Passport to Savings” booklet offering discounts at dining, shopping and entertainment establishments throughout Disney Springs such as House of Blues Restaurant & Bar, T-REX Cafe and Rainforest Cafe – to name but a few!
