    Me and my family are going to Disney next July. It will be me my husband and 4 children ages 13, 9,8,4. We are staying off site so we need to find good deals for things we may need or want to do. Looking for advice or suggestions of any kind. Thanks

    Hi Erikashaffer,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel,  We're so glad that you thought of us when planning your summer vacation for 2016. Let's get to it!  My first bit of advice is to eat breakfast in your room before your day at the parks. If you have the use of a kitchenette in your accommodations, this is an easy one.  There are several grocery stores in the Walt Disney World area including, Goodings, Wal-Mart and Publix.  If you will not have a car, there are some awesome grocery delivery services including GardenGrocer.com and WeGoShop.com

    Walt Disney World multi day park hopper tickets are a must.  You'll save money over the daily price of admission and get to visit more than one park per day.  Each theme park has lots of free entertainment throughout the day so be sure to get a guidebook when you first arrive to see what's happening that day. Even better yet, download the My Disney Experience on your phone so you can scout out what you'd like to do on your trip.  

    There are several websites out there dedicated to traveling to Walt Disney World on a budget; yourfirstvisit.net, themeparkinsider.com and mousesavers.com.  Check them out to see all of the tips and tricks that they have to offer.  

    As you start to narrow down how you'd like to spend your magical vacation, please come back and visit so we can help you put the extra pixie dust on your travel plans.

Walt Disney captured my heart as a little girl and has not let go since. As a parent and grandparent, I have been to the Walt Disney World Resort with children of all ages, and also as empty nesters. I would like to share my years of experience so that you are able to start your own tradition of Walt Disney World memories, just as I have. Learn More About Leanne
