    Hello,I have a family of 5 and my husband and I are trying to plan our first trip to disney but we are alittle overwhelmed with all the resorts.Plz help we also will like to keep it budget friendly.

    Hello Jessica!

    Planning for your first Walt Disney World Vacation can be overwhleming, but you have come to the right place!  We are honored to help you out in any way!

    Based on the size of your group, I would recommend either Disney's All-Star Music Suites OR Disney's Art of Animation Resort Suites. Both of these Disney Resorts are considered Value Resorts, which means they are the most affordable Disney Resorts on property. I will tell you that Disney's All-Star Music Suites are cheaper and are really nice. My family has stayed there many times. However, I will say the suites at Disney's Art of Animation are INCREDIBLE! If you are looking for the most affordable resort, then the All-Star Suites are your choice!

    Here are some additional Disney budget tips:

    What kind of tickets:

    To save money, I would recommend the basic Magic Your Way Tickets. These tickets are the most affordable and will STILL allow you to enjoy all of the four main Disney Theme Parks!

    Best time to visit Walt Disney World:

    There are different times of the year that are more affordable than others. If possible, try to plan your trip either in January-February or in August-September. This is when the Disney Resorts are less expensive AND Walt Disney world offers additional special offers like FREE Disney Dining!

    If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
