The Best Teacher Discounts For Central Florida Hotels and Attractions
My day job is as a school guidance counselor and I get to work alongside my math teacher husband. ( Thank God I married someone who can do math…. I sure can’t).
But needless to say, I know what ya’ll ( as in my fellow educators) are making.
For this reason, I have practically become a discount-hunting bloodhound when it comes to finding teacher discounts in Central Florida.
Below are some of my favorite hotel attraction discounts for educators. The list is broken down by teacher discounts for all teachers, and also discounts specifically for Florida Teachers!
Discounts For all Teachers
The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts
Yep. You read it correctly. The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts offer a year-round teacher discount. The Swan & Dolphin are two separate (super nice) hotels located just off of the Boardwalk, one of my favorite areas at #WDW.
Another option near Walt Disney World is Marriott’s Gaylord Palms Resort,a family-friendly resort in Kissimmee. They offer exclusive room rates for teachers, as well as special offers for their spa…and we all know you could use a massage.
Westgate Resorts offers 10% off their best rates for educators. Occasionally, they even offer teacher vacation packages with steep rate cuts. Just keep an eye on the website.
You can use the code EDUCATORS10 online or call (877) 288-7422 and give the discount code to an agent. A school ID will be required at check-in.
Other cities also have Westgate Resorts which honor the deal, including Miami.
Stay Sky Hotels
Discount hotels for teachers is a great way for educators to save some big money on their family vacations.

Plus, the OSC participates in the Museums on Us program through Bank of America. Anyone with a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch card can get free admission to the museum on the first weekend of every month. Plan for crowds, but it’s well worth it!
Skeletons: Museum of Osteology offers free admission to Florida school district employees.
Full disclosure… I have never been here. I feel like I would need to build myself up to it ( I’m squeamish), but here is the info for you to trash or treasure.
There are very few skeleton museums in the country and, according to the museum website, this particular one features the ” inner framework of hundreds of animals from all over the world.” You must show your valid school ID for the free admission.
I love my baseball and am a Cubs fan through and through. But, I can appreciate any team that offers a teacher discount and love that the Tampa Bay Rays includes teachers in a Salute to Service discount
On select Monday home games, licensed K-12 teachers can get up to two complimentary tickets.
If you are heading towards St. Augustine, Tour St. Augustine Inc. offers deeply discounted attractions and tours as part of their Educator VIP Program.
Discounts are steep, sometimes up to 50% or free for ghost tours, food & wine tours or historic walking tours.
