    Hi Glori,

    Walt Disney World vacation can be expensive and trying to save some money is always a great thing in my opinion!

    Unless you are planning on visiting multiple times in a year, the expense of the annual pass will not be made up in the savings on resorts. Your best bet is to look at the specials at Disney to grab a deal.

    Other ways to save money is to bring or pre-purchase snacks, breakfast and drinks. We generally will order breakfast foods, snacks and water from an online grocer to have it shipped to our resort. This will save us money and time as we are eating breakfast in our room prior to leaving for the day. We also have water to start the day as well as snacks. We have also packed peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch as well.

    You can look for other money saving tips at Mousesavers.com to save on tickets and resorts.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
