    I have a family of four including me. We are borderline obsessed with Disney and the whole orlando experience, but I get discouraged with the pricing. How can we spend a week there with park hopper for no more than $1500.00, including dining?

    At least you're just borderline obsessed, Kinya; my family is one of full-fledged Disneyphiles!  With regard to planning a budget trip, there are a lot of factors that determine pricing.  You don't mention the ages of the others in your family, but operating under the assumption that you want to travel with two adults and two children under the age of ten, it's entirely possible to come very close to that $1500 figure.  I just did a quick search on the website and found a vacation package that comes within $200 of that.  Not bad, right?  Here is what you want to remember:

    -Vacation during value season.  Room rates will be at their lowest and, often times, you can snag a great deal like free dining!
    -When you're looking for a budget trip, you may have to sacrifice upgrades like the park hopper option.  Not to worry, though, while park hopping is a convenience, it's certainly not necessary to have a magical trip!
    -Plan on staying in one of Disney's value resorts.  They offer the most economical accommodations!

    Hopefully those tips will help you to find the vacation that both fits your budget and leaves you with the most magical of memories!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
