(Waldorf Astoria Orlando )
It's hardly a small world after all at the Hilton and Waldorf Astoria located within the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. These hotels have a head-spinning 1,500 rooms between them, with pools, a nature preserve, golf courses, restaurants and spas. Now they also have a cool summer deal that offers guests a free theme park ticket for every two-night stay.
The deal: The Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek and Waldorf Astoria Orlando award one adult single-day ticket to a Disney World theme park for every two nights (two tickets for a four-night stay, three tickets for a six-night stay, and so on). The hotels also offer free transportation to and from Walt Disney World and Downtown Disney. Prices start at $159 a night at the Hilton and $199 a night at the Waldorf Astoria, excluding tax and fees.
The Hilton Orlando also tacks on a "kids eat free" promotion that allows two children to eat breakfast and dinner for free with a paid adult entree.
When: The deal is good through Sept. 30.
Tested: I checked availability online for a four-night stay at each hotel starting July 24. I found a room with two queen beds for two adults and two children for $219 plus tax at the Waldorf Astoria and $159 plus tax at the Hilton Orlando. Staying at either hotel for four days scores two free adult tickets that would normally cost $82 each.
