Disney World Vacation - Top Money Saving Tips

Aug 21, 2008
Everyone knows that a Disney World vacation is not the cheapest of vacations. It's such a magical experience that we all want to see and do everything - and that costs money. Here are some of the top tips on making your bucks go further in Disney World.

Plan before you go:

Do as much research as you can before you go, particularly if it's your first visit. The most common mistake is making impulse decisions and purchases due to the excitement of the trip. Allow yourself time before you book your vacation to shop around for the best deals for accommodation, travel, etc.

Search the Internet to obtain those ever-useful money-off coupons and on-line deals. They're available for a variety of goods and services, not just groceries, and you can save a lot of money by remembering those valuable vouchers.

Draw up a framework itinerary to find out which Disney Tickets you are likely to need. Changing or up-grading them will cost you cash which could have been extra holiday spending money.

Plan when you will go:

Florida doesn't have cold winters so, if you can, why not travel off-season. A Disney World vacation off-season is not only less expensive but the parks will not be so crowded too. If you have to pull your kids out of school, they will still get their educational fix from Epcot and Animal Kingdom. Airfares to Orlando can be cheaper mid-January till February, and September till October.

Plan where you will stay:

Of course the ideal place to stay on a Disney World vacation is a Disney World resort. However these can be very expensive, especially for a large family. How about renting a vacation home outside of Disney World? Accommodation is spacious and comfortable and means that all the family can stay together instead of in various hotel rooms. Size and amenities offered vary from villa to villa, but are guaranteed to provide a much-needed refuge off-park when exhaustion hits.

Plan how much to spend:

Set yourself a budget for vacation spending money, and try to stick to it. Don't go shopping for souvenirs everyday - you will spend more than you plan to. Instead, save your shopping trip for later in the vacation when you've seen the parks and have a good idea of where to spend your money. This will cut out impulse buys and may even save you time.

Plan to do some FREE things:

Yes, believe it or not, there are activities on a Disney World vacation that don't cost a thing and you just need to know where to look to find them. Visit some of Disney's resort hotels, tour the grounds where you can listen to the music, see the wonderful architecture and gardens - and if you're really lucky you may see some Walt Disney characters. Go to the Boardwalk, soak up the atmosphere and just hang out, or visit Celebration.

So, armed with these money-saving tips, your Disney World vacation won't burn a hole in your pocket.
