1. FREE Disney World Tickets!
Disney recently shared that starting January 5th, guests can get an additional 2 days of theme park tickets when they buy a 4-night/3-day room-and-ticket package at select Disney Resort hotels.

According to Disney, guests must stay a minimum of 4 nights to receive this deal, but it can be booked on stays of up to 14 nights. The offer isn’t valid for certain hotel rooms, including options like the campsites at Fort Wilderness and the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.
