I saved the best for the last. One big myth about Disney is that you need to have lots of money to go. Today I’m busting that myth. It is possible to go to Disney in a budget and while there you can save too. If you decide to go on a budget is super important to plan ahead, and is still going to be magical. I am right now kind of planning my next trip. That’s how much I love Disney! So, today I’m giving you tips on how to save hundreds at Disney.
1- Plan with ahead of time
Start early with all the planning. Where are you going to stay, how will you travel, and buying tickets. Chances are you might find a great offer. Also, if you plan with time there’s no need to rush.
2- Travel off season
We love to travel on Summer but many others do so. Travel off season and you will save more. Some of the lowest time at Disney are Spring after Easter, early June, and November before Thanksgiving. Plus, with low crowds you will enjoy more the parks.
3- Compare prices in other sites
Don’t just go with the first offer that appears. This time we decided to buy our tickets directly from Disney because they were cheaper. Let me explain, we asked at a local travel agency, and the difference was sixty dollars more. That’s a lot!
4- Travel in groups
If you travel in groups you can divide the total between all the members, and you will pay way less. Not to mention, you will still have the same accommodation.
5- Take food
At Disney you can take food with you into the parks. You will spend a whole bunch of less comparing buying food in the parks. Also, eat before you enter a park.
6- Don’t buy water
There’s no necessity in buying water. Just ask at a Disney counter service restaurant for ice water, and viola! Free water at the parks.
7- Prepare for different weather
The first thing that come to our minds about Florida is sunny weather. But, there are some chances while at Disney of rain. Buy $1 ponchos and keep them in your bag. Is better to spend $1 than $10 Disney poncho.
8- Use military discount
Military discount is the best! Have a military in your family? Cordially invite them. My dad is a veteran, and I can’t wait to use his discount. Learn more about military discount here.
9- Use FastPass
FastPass is free! (in case you didn’t know) If you use fastpass you’ll maximize your time at the parks, and you enjoy more your day.
10- Collect free souvenirs at the parks
There are some things that you can collect as souvenirs at the parks for free. Some are celebration buttons (a classic), stickers, or maps, just to mention a few.
11- Get free photos
If you can’t buy the memory maker, you can ask Disney photographers to take a picture with your camera, and they will gladly do so. That way nobody is left out of a pic
12- Buy toys in advance
If you go with kids buy some Disney toys in advance. If they behave that day in the park tell them Mickey will leave something at their hotel room.
13- Buy souvenirs outside Disney
If you want to buy some souvenirs for friends or just for you go outside Disney. At Florida you can find Disney stuff everywhere. In gift shops or even Walmart or Target you will find Disney stuff for less.
14- Take your stroller
Skip the stroller rental, and just take your stroller with you.
