How to save hundreds at Disney

How to save hundreds at Disney

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.

Something that makes exciting when we go out is our clothes according to the occasion, We don’t like to arrive at a place under dressed or over dressed. So, why not dress according to our Disney vacations? Not to mention, matching with the family or our kids makes our vacation more magical. I was on the search for the perfect outfits for months, what to buy, and how to match to each park. That’s why today I wanted to share places to find the best Disney clothes for baby and mom.

At Walmart you will find clothes for all the family from t-shirts to pajamas. This is the nearest place for me to find Disney clothes. Best of all we can find clothes at a affordable price. I bought these pajamas to Maia for our trip. Look at these options for mom here, here and here.

2- Target

I love Target! This is another great place to find Disney clothes at an affordable price. Look at these options for dad here, here and here, for mom here, here and here, and for the baby here,here and here

3- Etsy

At Etsy you will find unique clothes for your trip. It’s going to be very rare someone having the same thing as you. Etsy is more expensive but that’s because these are small business and create the pieces by hand. Most of my tops and ears were from Etsy. Look at this super cute ears.

4- Wish

Many have different opinions about Wish but is a great place to find ridiculously cheap clothes or accessories. Wish was a great option to buy some outfits for my girl and a t-shirt for my husband. Overall, the purchases were positive. 

5- Disney Store

This one is quite obvious because this is mostly the first place we look on. Not to mention, some of their pieces may be expensive but they recurrently have offers. These options are perfect for the parks, option 1, option 2, option 3.
