    We would like to go to Disneyland for one day and stroll around with our 3 year old, but the cost for her plus a senior and 2 adults is around $700. Is there a less expensive way to be able to do this?

    Hello there Utahna, welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting that you're planning such a special trip with your family.  I'm sure many family memories will be made during your visit to the "Happiest Place on Earth!"  

    Before planning our visit, I always love to explore the special offers & discounts page to see if any would apply to you and your family.  I recommend being logged into your Disneyland account as well.    

    Another great way that I like to save some money during our trips is by bringing in our own food, snacks, and reusable water bottles.  As long as what you plan to bring is not on the prohibited items list, you should be able to bring some food and snacks to tide you over between meals.  When my kids were younger, we'd pack peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and other snacks for smaller appetites.  There are plenty of bottle-filling stations throughout both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park where you can refill the water bottle you brought in.  

    My final tip is that you do not need to dine at a table service restaurant during your trip which can get expensive.  We usually opt for one of the wonderful quick service dining locations, or even snack on our favorite Disney treats throughout the day that are less expensive than meals!  Some of our favorite snacks are the Chili Cone Queso from the Cozy Cone Motel in Disney California Adventure Park, or the delicious beef and chicken skewers from Bengal Barbecue in Disneyland Park.  Don't forget the classic Mickey Pretzels, Churros, or Popcorn, they're always a great option and less expensive than other snacks!

    I hope these tips are helpful for your upcoming trip, Utahna!  I'm happy to help with any other planning recommendations, so don't hesitate to come back and ask me any other questions you may have.

    Have a magical day!
