Tips to for visiting Walt Disney World on a Budget

Disney on a Dime? Yes, it is Possible!!

Here are some tips to get you started planning your Walt Disney World Vacation.

Know When to Go
Generally speaking when the kids are out of school Walt Disney a World is crowded….. and more expensive. If you have a flexible schedule try to take advantage of off peak times to visit. September and early November through mid December (with the exception of Thanksgiving week) is a great time of year to visit with great temperatures and opportunities for savings.

Never Pay Full Price!
Disney is releases promotions throughout the year. Take advantage of them and save some money! No one knows better about what promotions apply to your travel than your Authorized Disney Travel Planner.

Skip the Park Hopper Ticket Option
Consider passing on the Park Hopper option when purchasing tickets. While this option provides guests with flexibility to visit multiple parks in one day it may not be necessary for those families traveling on a budget. At $64 per ticket, forgoing this option can save a family a few hundred dollars!

Stroller Rentals
Does your family require a stroller? Don’t want to bring your own? At $15 a day for a single stroller and $31 a day for a double stroller rental costs can add up quickly! Consider renting from an outside company to save $$$! They will deliver the stroller to your resort and you will have a convenient stroller for your entire trip.

Don’t Break the Bank Purchasing Souvenirs
Set a limit for the kids before you go. Purchase a gift card for each child and encourage them to choose what they spend their money on wisely!

Use an Authorized Disney Travel Planner
Most Authorized Disney Travel Planners provide their services at no cost to their clients- they are paid through Disney directly. Authorized Disney Travel Planners have the knowledge and expertise to book your family in an appropriate room and category that will meet your needs and budget! A good agent will continue to search for promotions for their clients even after they have booked and will automatically apply them to clients reservations to save them money!
