It’s a great time to be a Disney+ subscriber.

With crowds flocking to Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate its 50th Anniversary throughout each Disney Park, Disney has decided to drop a special offer for Disney+ subscribers!

As we previously shared, Disney has revealed a “Disney+ Subscribers: Stay in the Magic and Save!” special offer which allows subscribers to save up to 25% on rooms at select Disney Resort hotel stays most nights from July 8 through September 30, 2022.

With the limited number of Disney Resort Hotel rooms allocated for the promotion, Disney+ subscribers are hurrying to the Disney website which has now caused a virtual queue for those waiting to snag the deal.

When visiting the special offers page, Guests will notice a “You’re Almost in Orbit” as shown in the screenshot below, nothing, “Thank you for your patience. Many Guests are trying to book accommodations right now, so you are currently in a waiting room. Hang in there, as you are making progress. Don’t refresh the page or select the back button.”


The note further goes on to mention that if you’re waiting to book the Disney+ Walt Disney World Hotel offer you must be logged in using the same email associated with your Disney+ subscription. To do so, you can check your Memberships and Passes in a new browser while you wait to see if your Disney+ subscription is associated with your My Disney Experience account.


Once your wait time is up, you’ll be prompted to enter the site. Be aware however that you’ll only have 10 minutes to enter the site, so don’t wait once you’ve been prompted to join.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Disney+ and the Disney Parks join forces. Last year on Disney+ Day (November 12, 2021), several Disney castles glowed with the Disney+ blue including Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World, Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Resort, and Cinderella Castle at Tokyo Disneyland. EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Tower of Terror even projected blue.

Several Disney Parks, including Disney’s Hollywood Studios, offered complimentary merchandise and surprises for Disney+ subscribers to celebrate the big day.

About Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
