Walt Disney World announces hotel room discounts

Walt Disney World has announced discounts of up to 20 percent on some hotel rooms during November and most of December.

Guests visiting Disney World between Nov. 6 and Dec. 23 may receive discounts, depending which hotel they choose. To qualify, guests must book by Oct. 8.

"I was surprised by seeing dates that close to Christmas, for sure, because that is usually one of their peak, more expensive seasons," said Stephen Juliano, a travel agent who specializes in Disney trips. "I was happy to see them. It means some families I was working with who were previously not able to book are now looking at a trip closer to Christmastime."

Visitors can save up to 20 percent on certain deluxe villa and resort hotel rooms. They can save 10 percent on certain value resorts and 15 percent on some moderate hotels.

The number of rooms allocated for this offer is limited. Visitors cannot use the discounts Nov. 11-12 and Nov. 23-25.

Tourism has slowed this year in Orlando because of a combination of factors including the recession in Brazil. The recent Brexit vote is also expected to have an impact on visits. So could recent British warnings about the Zika virus in Florida.

The Walt Disney Co. will report its second quarter earnings Tuesday afternoon.
