The parks which have always offered an occasional discount are pulling out all the stops. Some examples include, multi-day, hotel and park packages where you can pretty much get every other night for free. The easiest way to pick up a deal is to head into your company's human resource department. Most parks send discounts to HR. Grabbing a coke can might help too.

Cruise ships are in the same boat offering huge discounts even on the new vessels and prime summer locations. The cruise ships figure if they can get you on board using deep discounts, they'll make it up by selling you shore escursions, food and drinks. For instance a three-day cruise to Mexico is going for as little as $270 and a New England seven-day cruise for under $600.

The Disney website is incredible, there are deals there and you can print maps of the park specifically to meet your needs. The other parks also have great online experiences check them out.
