4 Tips For Saving at Disney World

I recently enjoyed a great trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida with my family and our 101 Ohana. We had a lot of fun, and learned some valuable money saving tips while we were there.

Today I’m sharing my Top 4 Tips for saving while enjoying Disney World with your family:

Tip #1: Fly during the low season.

Your airfare will be the biggest expense of the trip. So traveling during the off season could save you hundreds. I was in Orlando at the beginning of September and the flights were just under $700. As a bonus, the lines at the park were much shorter.

Tip #2: Stay off property.

Expect to pay an arm and a leg if you stay at a Disney Resort. Instead, you can find a nice vacation rental on VRBO.com. We rented an amazing 9 bedroom 9 bath house that fits 9 families. Cost per family is about $100 per night, which is equal to the cost of an average hotel room outside of Disney World.

Tip #3: Pack your own food.

Surprisingly Disney lets people bring in their own food. Go to the local grocery store and make or bring your favorite snacks. My personal favorite is a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Tip #4: Skip the souvenirs at the park.

Instead of buying souvenirs at the park, get them at a near by Target or Wal-Mart. They have pretty much the same, and at a third of the cost.

Disney World is a fun way to spend quality time with your family. Just remember these savings tips so you don’t have to break the bank.
