Have you ever wanted to sleep in the same room as strangers at Disney World? The answer to that question is probably no. However, what if it could save you 75% or more on your Disney World hotel? If you know how expensive hotels are at Disney World, we’re sure this offer has you interested. Well, now you can save 75% or more at Disney hotels with their new Roomshare option.
One night in a Disney hotel can cost anywhere from just over $100 a night all the way up to $5,000 a night. That $5,000 per night of course is in the largest suite in the Grand Floridian. That’s more expensive than staying a night in the Living with the Land house, which we reported on here. Also, it’s more expensive than spending a night in the Tower of Terror. Now, with Disney’s Roomshare option, guests can save big money on their Disney hotel stay.
Saving Money on Disney Resorts with Roomshare
Currently, there aren’t many ways to save money at Disney resorts. Luckily, our friends at The DVC Rental Store have bookings that can save you up to 65% on a Disney hotel. You can check them out here for more information. However, there is now a new way to save money on Disney hotels. That is part of Disney’s new Roomshare option, coming to all Disney resorts.
Essentially, the Roomshare option at Disney allows you to split the cost of your room with other guests. There are two ways to do this. If you are traveling with another family, this easily lets you split the costs with the other family, through Disney’s website. However, if you are traveling alone or with another one or two guests, you can share a room with random guests. This is all meant to save you money at Disney.
When you book a Disney room, you select how many guests you have. If you want to do the Roomshare option, check the Roomshare box. Disney uses an algorithm to match you with other guests also using this option. For example, if you’re a party of 2 and want to spend a night at the Beach Club, it might cost $700 for one night for both of you. However, if you select the Roomshare option, Disney will pair you with two other guests. It may be a couple or two individuals. Then, Disney splits the check accordingly. In this case, you will only pay $350 per night. The other guests will pay the other $350 together or separately. That is a 50% discount for you!
Sleeping With Strangers?
The Roomshare option at Disney comes with mixed reviews. Some folks will do anything to save money at Disney. Especially given how rare it is to save this much. In fact, if you are a single rider visiting Disney, you could save up to 75% or more on your Disney room if you get paired with 3 or more guests to split a room. That’s a huge discount!
This is a win-win for guests as well as Disney. First off, as we already mentioned, you can save a ton of money on your hotel. However, Disney also wins. This allows them to fit more guests into their hotel. In the Beach Club example, this allows Disney to book out an additional room or two to other guests. If that one room was made of a couple and two individuals, that normally would require three hotel rooms. However, Disney condensed three rooms into one. This allows Disney to pack their hotels with far more people when the Roomshare option is chosen.
Of course, many guests question the idea of sharing a room with strangers. Can you trust the people you are staying with? What are their sleep schedules like? Is it weird to have random adults in the same bed? These are some of the questions that have come up already. Luckily, the Roomshare is optional and only those comfortable with sleeping with strangers should select that option.
