    Hello! When is the best time to visit disney world? Don't have much of a budget? Are hotels or villas cheaper?

    Hi Chavanti!!!  Greetings to a fellow Georgian!!!

    Thank you so much for your question!!!

    I can totally understand and relate with needing to be on a strict budget while on a Walt Disney World Vacation.  I am happy to offer my experience and opinions to help you plan the best possible vacation!!!

    I would definitely say that the most inexpensive route for a Walt Disney World Vacation is staying at a Value Resort.  If I had to pick one Value Resort (which are all wonderful) in which to stay I would select Disney's Pop Century Resort.  This resort has it's own bus route, so it allows you to further maximize your Disney Vacation Experience!!

    The best time to visit that will reflect the lowest crowd sizes and the cheapest hotel prices would be mid August to the end of September.  Most schools would have started back so that helps tremendously with the crowd size.  During this time span you can also possibly get a free Disney Dining Plan.  This is for most arrivals between August 25-September.  If you stay at a Value Resort and get tickets with your reservation, then you would get a free Quick-Service Dining Plan per person in your party.  This would give each person two meals and one snack a day.  It will also give you a free Resort Refillable Mug for your entire trip!!

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions!!!

    Have a magical day!!
