    Hi, my family and my best friends family are planning a trip to disney, we have never been and want to know the cheapest way to plan the trip and still get the whole experience. we cannot decide to stay on one of the resorts or off.

    Hi Amanda!!!

    Congratulations on planning your first Walt Disney World Vacation!!!

    First of all, if you want to get the full Walt Disney World experience, I would definitely suggest staying on Walt Disney World Resort Property.  You can get a room at the Value Resorts for usually less than $125 a night.  This way, you will be able to enjoy all the amenities of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel (Extra Magic Hours, Disney Transportation, etc.)  

    I would also encourage you to purchase Magic Your Way Tickets without the Park Hopper Option if you want to save some extra dollars.  This will allow you to visit one theme park per day for your vacation.  

    I always bring food and snacks so I do not have to buy all my food inside the theme parks.  I usually bring food for breakfast and eat it in the room or at the bus stop while waiting on the bus to head to the theme parks.  

    I hope this helps!!  Please let me know if you need any further assistance!!

    Have a magical day!
