    I have a friend who I am trying to find out info for there first trip to Disneyland they have a family of 6 ,so I thought about my family we've never been to Disneyland, and they would love to go.We r a family of 7 how can go 2 Disneyland on a budget?

    With a few tricks and some advanced planning, vacationing at the Disneyland Resort can be more affordable than you think.  The Disneyland Resort offers 3 unique accommodation options with price points to suit most budgets.  My recommendation for families on a budget is Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel which is located just steps away from the magic of the Disneyland theme parks and Downtown Disney. There are also several "Disney approved" Good Neighbor hotels nearby which may be ideal depending on your situation.

    Be sure to check out the Disneyland Special Offers webpage frequently to discover promotional ticket offers and even complete vacation package specials.  Bundling your accommodations and tickets together can offer substantial savings.  Discounted tickets are also frequently available from outside "authorized" sources such as Costco and Vons Grocery stores.  You could also conduct a web search to locate "Authorized" ticket dealers to see if you are able to find a better deal on park tickets.  With that being said, I usually secure the best value through the official Disneyland site.

    Some other money-saving tips are as follows:

    -Bring souvenirs from home
    -Purchase basic necessities such as sunscreen, ponchos, and batteries prior to arrival
    -Pack water and snacks in a small, soft-sided cooler to bring into the parks
    -Bring dry breakfast items such as cereals to enjoy breakfast in your room
