Walt Disney World Increasing Additional Person Fee for 2018 Resort Stays

How many of you out there knew that Disney actually charges a fee for scenarios where there are more than 2 adults staying in a single room.  Well this is definitely the case.  This is true for resort stays at all resorts in the value, moderate and deluxe categories.  Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts or family suites at other resorts are the only exceptions to this rule.  Adults are considered guests that are aged 18 and older.  It looks like the fee that has been charged in the past will increase for 2018 resort stays.

This change will go into effect starting on January 1st, 2018.  The fee is applied per person, per night plus tax that go over 2 guests in the room, ages 18+.

The new fee breakdown is as follows:

  • Value Resorts:  $15 per night, per additional adult (increased from $10)
  • Moderate Resorts:  $25 per night, per additional adult (increased from $15)
  • Deluxe Resorts:  $35 per night, per additional adult (increased from $25)

The change will only affect recent bookings and not bookings that were made super early.  It is very possible if you booked your 2018 stay right away that you may not be subject to this additional fee.

How many of you have even noticed the charge to your room?  How many of you travel with more than 2 adults staying in a room?  My family has never encountered the fee before, but it is good to know that it could be applied in these scenarios.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
