Marriott Teacher Discount at Gaylord Hotels for Summer 2018–Including Orlando at Disney
We have designed this website for anyone traveling on a budget and not just teachers; however, since we are both teachers we want to share every awesome opportunity possible for educators to save money and still travel to incredible places this summer!Gaylord National, DC
We are so excited to share this wonderful news with teachers, but you need to act quickly if you want to take advantage of it! We have found that if you book with the discount code listed in this post and then present your teacher badge at check-in that you can receive a rate significantly discounted——For example: Normal rate is $330 but the teacher discounted rate is $139!!!!!! These rates are subject to blackout dates, so if the hotel is filling up quickly on a certain date the rates may not be available.
We also know of an amazing discount for teachers offered at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, and we encourage you to find out more about that discount here.
Let’s get to the fun stuff:
Gaylord properties are offering a teacher discount code that gives a significant drop in price compared to normal rates. Every property is a little bit different, but we will start by explaining the process for booking and then will have a link and a price for each property. Please follow the directions for getting the discount very carefully, and let us know if you have any issues.
First go to this webpage and decide on the resort you wish to research. (Find more information about each resort below in this post.)
It will look like this:
The four Gaylord Hotel options are at the bottom and shown as a link in blue. Click on the one you want to visit.
I clicked on the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, and this is the screen I received next:
First, spend some time reading everything on this page. I especially like the discount teachers can receive on spa treatments!
But ultimately we are here for the hotel discounts, so notice the rate is only $179.I know that sounds like a lot, and it is, but there are dates in June that are listed at $139! I will show you how to get those rates in just a minute.
Click on the Learn More button now, which will take you to this page:
Right under the red $179, there is a place for you to enter your email. You do not have to enter a school email address, and I would recommend you use a personal email.
After entering your email, click the “sign up” button. The email generated immediately for us, so go ahead and check your email to receive your discount code.
In the email you received you have an option to “book now” if you click it through your email. Going this route takes you directly to the place where you will pick your dates of travel.
So far, every email we have tried we have received the same discount code, which was:
As long as you enter this discount code in the corporate/promotional code box, you will get your teacher discount. (If you clicked “book now” through your email the discount code will already be entered for you.)
Your screen should look like this, and note the calendar will let you look at a whole month at a time:
The dates that are blacked out can be viewed easily, and you can see which dates would be the cheapest for your travel plans.
At this point, you just need to pick your dates and choose your room. As long as you show your teacher ID/badge at check-in, you will receive this significantly discounted rate!

The quickest way to earn Marriott Rewards is by signing up for the Marriott Rewards Credit Card through Chase.

Since Marriott recently purchased Starwood hotels, you can also sign up for the Starwood credit card and get 25,000 Starpoints, which is then converted to 75,000 Marriott Rewards Points.
Although this teacher discount is not for a free stay like most of the posts discussed on this site, the discount is just too good to pass up. If your budget will not allow you to spend $139 for a hotel (don’t feel bad, we all are there at times) then try to split the cost with another couple or a buddy by booking a 2 queen room.
