    I am a college student with a very limited budget. Are there any special discounts or deals for college students?

    Hi Hannah! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I remember being a college student and being on a very strict budget. It is hard to study for a degree and a lot of extra money. I applaud you for going to college to further your education!

    There are not any Special Offers specifically for College Students that I am aware of but there are some ways to travel to the Walt Disney World Resort without breaking the bank. There are usually Special Offers available throughout the year you just have to find the one that is right for you. If you will be staying on site you can stay at a Value Resort. We love Disney's Pop Century Resort…it gives you the whole Disney on site experience without breaking the bank! If you have a friend willing to go with you, they could split the cost of the Resort hotel room with you to save you some money. You may also want to look into the Quick-Service Dining Plan. On this plan you will get a snack, two Quick-Service meals per day, and one Rapid Fill Resort Refillable Mug, per person per night of your stay.

    Lastly you don’t have to spend a fortune on souvenirs or other extras while you are visiting. As tempting as it may be, sometimes the best fun is had when you aren’t spending any extra money at all! I hope that you are able to take the break that you deserve!
