Frontline workers can now get discounts on Disney holidays

Frontline workers can now get cheaper holidays to Disneyland Paris, as well as Walt Disney World in Florida.

The deal will be available to Blue Light Card holders, thanks to a new partnership between the discount service and the Walt Disney Travel Company.

That means that workers in the NHS, emergency services and social care sector can get an exclusive 5% discount on packages to the iconic Disney resorts.

The discounts will also include Walt Disney World’s brand new 50th anniversary package, which comes with heaps of perks such as $950 Disney Dining Credit, a 14-Day Ticket for the price of a 7-Day Ticket, and $200 Disney Spending Money. Oh, and that includes packages with prices from £65pp a day, with access to all four of its theme parks, and two water parks.

The Florida-based resort is pulling out all the stops for its milestone birthday complete with an 18-month celebration from October, so there’s ample opportunity to bag a bargain if you’re tempted with a holiday in 2022.

Of course it’s not just the Orlando park – the discount will also be valid for packages booked to Disneyland Paris.

There’s plenty to get excited about for when its two theme parks (Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios Park) reopen, which is currently planned for June.

The biggest highlight will be the resort’s brand new Marvel themed hotel which will include the world’s largest collection of Marvel artwork, superhero themed suites, and heaps of surprises for fans to discover.

If you don’t have a Blue Light Card you can sign up for one online – a card costs £4.99 and is valid for two years.

Justin Kliger, Director of Walt Disney Travel Company, commented on the collaboration: “We are immensely proud to be given this opportunity to work with Blue Light Card. Providing frontline key workers – all of whom have worked tirelessly and selflessly to help deal with this unprecedented crisis – is a small, yet important token of our immense appreciation. We very much look forward to welcoming Blue Light Card members and their families to our Parks and Resorts and to experiencing the Magic of Disney.”

At the time of writing, both France and the USA remain on the UK’s amber list for Brits, meaning that anyone returning to the UK will need to self-isolate at home for 10 days, as well as being required to take a pre-departure test, and two PCR tests on days two and eight of isolation. (There is an option to take a test on day five, where a negative result will release you from your isolation early).

The Foreign Office continues to advise against non-essential travel to both of these destinations at the time of writing. Always check the latest FCO advice before booking, planning or going on a trip.
