Who doesn’t want to take a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth? I’ll wait, haha. Although everyone dreams of going to Disney, it can get quite expensive, fast. Looking back, I think of all the ways I could’ve saved… Big time!
Use a Travel Agent
I always suggest that people use a travel agent that specializes in Disney as their 1st tip for saving money. A travel agent that specializes in Disney makes it their priority for you to have the perfect fast passes, dining reservations and more on the day your booking window opens. To say they plan your trip while you’re sleeping is an understatement. The best part? Travel agents are FREE! Let me plan your trip, just fill out
Although Disney does run promos, they get booked fast! Even if you’re unsure of your travel dates, still make a deposit, your agent can change your itinerary at any time. Did you know you can make payments on a Disney vacation? You can pay any amount you’d like at any time until your trip needs to be paid in full, which is 45 days before your arrival date.
Dining on a Dime
I’m not saying to skip Disney dining completely, there are a few restaurants you don’t want to pass up! One way my family saves on food is packing snacks. Yes, you can bring your own food and water into all four parks! We usually buy bulk packs of chips, cookies, granola bars and more for a quick bite. Eat a small breakfast, bring a Banana for the monorail ride! Believe it or not most meals at Disney are shareable, And if you have a small appetite for kids meals will be your go to, and a drink comes with it! Also, all dining locations will give you unlimited free cups of water, I suggest to bring your own reusable water bottle to get more bang for your buck.
Be Your Own Photographer
Don’t worry, you’ll still get everyone in the picture! Disneys Photo package (Memory Maker) purchased in advance cost $150 or $199 in the parks. Without Memory Maker, the professional photographers will still take your camera/phone and take your families iconic picture in front of Cinderella’s Castle! You do still have the option to purchase unforgettable ride photos at the end of your trip for a much lower cost.
Choose The Right Resort
Staying on Disney property has SO many perks. It gives you free transfers to and from all parks and Disney springs with buses arriving every 20 minutes. Staying on site also gives you extra hours in the parks and early access to booking things like fast passes and dining reservations. However staying off-site can be more cost-effective for some families, with all of the options your travel agent can help you with your concerns like budget, safety, cleanliness, directions, and transportation.
These are a few of my top tips for doing Disney, I’d love to share more with you. For a free quote and to see how a travel agent can save you time and money, I’m your girl. Simply complete this quick formand I’ll get back to you faster than you can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
