MouseSavers.com says a room at one of Disney World's least-expensive hotels, the All-Star Music Resort, costs about 25 percent less during fall weekdays compared with summer weekdays. And fall plane fares to far-off destinations can drop as much as 29 percent compared with summer fares, according to a study by Hipmunk.
