Money Saving Tips For A Disney World Vacation – Part 1
Are you dying to go on a Disney World vacation, but need to spend a little less this time around? Many will say it can’t be done, but I beg to differ. While Disney World will never be an inexpensivevacation option, it definitely is possible to cut corners and save a bit of money here and there—something that really adds up to a lot by the time vacation is over.
So what can you do to save a few bucks while still having a blast in your favorite theme parks in the world? Well, it all starts with planning and thoughtful decisions.
Below are some suggestions of the best money saving decisions you can make before and during your trip to ensure you spend as little as possible so you get the most bang for your buck.
Go During Off Season
First and foremost, it’s important to note that prices for rooms will be significantly cheaper during the off season. Additionally, crowd levels will be lower, meaning shorter waits and thus a smaller amount of time spent in the parks (if the budget requires it). Therefore, an off-season trip is the easiest on the wallet.
Pitch a Tent
Can’t afford a room even during the off season? You might consider camping in Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground. This option is great because you get all the benefits of staying on Disney property for a much smaller price. Of course, if you don’t own an RV or know anyone who’d let you borrow theirs, staying here would also mean sleeping in a tent, so depending on how you feel about that, this may or may not work for you.
Pack food in your suitcases, or order it to be delivered from Garden Grocers. Use this food to prepare breakfast in your room before leaving in the mornings. Additionally, pack some snacks to take with you into the parks and eat throughout the day. This will save you a significant amount of money on all those meals at Disney restaurants.
I agree that Disney World will never be an inexpensive vacation option but it definitely is possible to cut corners. Yes, you can afford a trip by using most if not all of these money saving tips. Have a great Disney vacation!!
