How to save money at a Disney resort in Southern California
In a move that would be welcomed by many resort owners, Disney will stop charging resort guests for a one-day pass to their local hotel.
The change is expected to save about $30,000 a year, according to the Resort and Spa Association.
The association has been lobbying for the change for several years, and has been a vocal supporter of the move.
“Disney and its partners have been committed to providing resort guests with value-added service and experiences at all of our resorts,” said Tom Folsom, senior vice president of Disney’s Parks and Resorts Group.
“We have worked diligently over the last few years to implement the cost-effective solution that we believe will make our resorts even more attractive to guests and keep our resorts competitive with other resorts.”
The resort’s new policy is the latest effort to make sure guests can spend their money in the most economical way possible.
In December, Walt Disney World in Orlando was forced to pay $100 million to settle a lawsuit by the California chapter of the International Hotel and Lodging Association, which claimed the resort had violated the state’s Fair Labor Standards Act.
