    can i get some budget tips

    Hi Spencer,

    I am so happy you stopped by with your question about budget tips for Walt Disney World.  As a Mother of four children, planning and budgeting is an integral part of my daily life and this includes our vacation planning.

    First I suggest visiting during the "Value" season when Disney Resort hotel room rack rates are the lowest. Not only will this save you money, you will experience overall lower crowd levels. Next consider purchasing theme park tickets ahead of time since Magic Your Way tickets do not expire until 14 days from their first usage. I sometimes purchase one person's tickets at a time until my whole family has tickets. I also recommend staying in either the Value Resort hotel or Moderate Resort hotel room categories for big budget savings but still retaining all the same amenities of residing at a Disney Resort hotel. By staying at a Disney Resort hotel you receive a lot of added values such as complimentary Magical Express transportation from Orlando International Airport, complimentary transportation within the Walt Disney World Resort, early access to FastPass+ planning, and Extra Magic Hours. Finally I recommend packing nonperishable food (or using grocery delivery service) which will enable you to save on food costs by bringing your own snacks and drinks into the parks as well as having a quick breakfast in your room each day.

    Have a Magical vacation and please let us know if you have any further questions!
