Tips for Doing Disney World on a Budget
Every family wants to go to Disney World – after all; it’s the place where dreams come true. Children look forward to meeting their most beloved Disney characters and parents look forward to putting a smile on their children’s faces (and also can’t wait to meet their own favorite Disney characters.) While Disney World is the dream destination of so many families, for many, it can be difficult to make this dream come true. Let’s face it; Disney World isn’t exactly cheap, and with the economy the way that it is, it can be very difficult to turn the dream of visiting Walt Disney World into a reality.
Fortunately, however, you don’t have to break the budget when it comes to visiting Walt Disney World. There are several ways that you can save money at the Happiest Place on Earth. Grab a pen and a piece of paper, because you are about to find out some tips that will help you keep costs down and make your family’s dream of visiting Disney World come true.
- Book Online. A lot of people rely on a travel agent when it comes to booking their trip to Disney World. The truth is, while a travel agent may be convenient, they can cost you more money. Book your trip by yourself, online. By doing so, you won’t get trapped into booking things that you really don’t need and you can shop around and find the best prices available.
- Travel Off Season. There are prime seasons for traveling to Disney World, such as the summer, during spring and winter breaks and any other time of the year that children often have off from school. Travel during non-peak seasons and you will save money on airfare, as well as hotels.
- Stay Off Site. While staying right in the heart of the action at one of the Disney World resorts may be appealing, doing so can also be very expensive. If you want to keep costs down, book a hotel just outside of Disney World. Doing so, you will find much less expensive rates, and you will also be able to get away from the crowds inside the Disney World Resorts.
- Dine Smart. Food in Disney can also be quite costly. If possible, dine outside the theme park, but if you have to dine inside, make your biggest meal lunch; the cost of lunch is much less expensive than the cost of dinner.
With these money saving tips, you can make your dream of visiting Disney World a reality and still have money left in your account.
