How to Experience Disney World on a Budget

 

Disney on a budget

You’re thinking about taking your family on a vacation to Disney World, but have a tight budget? Here are a few tips on how to stay within your budget limit and still have a great time!

#1 – Drive (your own car)! Yes, this might be a long trip and it might require a stop or two in a motel… But, it will certainly be cheaper than to buy a flight ticket for each member of your family, then having to rent a car to get to Disney World!! Plus, this is a chance for your kids (and you!) to see some of the beautiful North American scenery and a road trip is always exciting for kids.

#2 – Off-season is the right time to go! Don’t plan your holiday in the peak season, prices will be more expensive everywhere and Disney resorts will be crowded! Not only will this be a cheaper option, it will also be more enjoyable for you and your kids.

#3- Budget hotel – Disney has a few budget hotels on property! They all boast free transportation to the parks and have pools! If you are happy to sleep in a Disney overdosed decor for a few nights, then this is cheaper option for you and your family!

#4 – Camping? Yes, you can go camping at Disney World! Fort Wilderness is a great campsite for you and your kids! It has free water transportation to the park, and a pool with water slides! The starting price for this option is $53!

#5 – Outside Disney. You can also stay in a hotel outside of Disney park and save quite a lot of money! Makes sure the hotel you choose has a shuttle to and from the park so you don’t have to pay for parking there.

#6 – Bring your own water and snacks! This is very important and often overlooked! Continuously brings drinks for the family under the burning Florida sun can quickly become very expensive! Refill your bottles at your hotel and bring them to the park! Bring snacks for you and your kids and avoid spending too much on extra treats.

#7 – Rain jackets – Yes in also rains in Florida! If you want to stay dry and not spend a little fortune on rain ponchos ($10 a piece) at Disney, pack your own!

#8 – Pool day? In Downtown Disney, hotels offer free access to their swimming pools! You’ll also find that your kids might enjoy playing with Legos at the Lego store in Downtown Disney.

#9 – Focus! Don’t try to do everything at once! Only buy tickets for one park and make the most of it! One park is already so big, there won’t be any time for you or your kids to get bored! One park a day, is a good way to go!

#10 – Rent a stroller from Magical Stroller Rentals instead of Disney! Disney stroller rentals are more expensive: $15 for one day and you can’t take them back with you to your hotel at the end of your day (which is when you might need it most!!). With Magical Stroller Rentals Florida you can keep your stroller for the whole duration of your stay, and it is cheaper than Disney!!
