4 Keys To Saving On a Disney World Vacation

Oct 9, 2007
The big dream of most young children is to go to Disney World. This vacation, however, is hard on the parents financially as it can cost several thousand dollars to bring the whole family there. Nevertheless, here are several things you can do to control your costs and still enjoy a wonderful Disney World vacation with your children.

First, plan and know your budget. Knowing how much you can and cannot afford to spend is very important so as to not rack up large debts from a trip to a Disney resort which is simply not wise.

Once you know the most that you can spend, you will want to start allocating amounts being put into the various expenses for your Disney World vacation. Begin with how you may want to get there. This is one of the most expensive parts of the vacation. Flying is the most convenient and the most likely means of transportation for people. Unless you fly at odd times of the day or week, taking flights for your Disney World vacation can be costly. A great way of cutting cost is to drive to your destination even though it takes eight or more hours. Your family can enjoy the car trip together and spend more quality time together as well.

Accommodation is the next major part of expense. There are numerous choices; you may opt to stay at Disney resort or off-site just a few miles out. Staying off site may help to cut cost but it is time consuming because you will have to travel between the park and your hotel. When deciding on lodging, keep in mind that an effective way to book your Disney World vacation is to book it during off peak seasons or at a time when Disney has what it calls "Value Rates".

Admission tickets to the resort are another big expense. For big families, this can be especially taxing if a large group is going for more than a day. There are a variety of ticket types available so make a list of them and compare what they all offer. Some Disney travel packages already include them in the cost. Thus, compare how much you could possibly save by buying everything separately.

The price, variety, and quality of food at Disney can vary widely. Cutting down on meals in the park is next. Perhaps, you may want to consider cutting down on breakfast by bringing your own cereal and milk, or packing lunch from restaurants outside the Disney resort. You may do the same thing with snacks. These are some ways that you may try in order to cut down on your expenses.

It is worth taking the extra effort to plan and budget your Disney World vacation. By cutting a few dollars here and there, it allows you to have extra money for other attractions or to buy a special souvenir in remembrance of the trip.
