    I am hoping to come to WDW in December 2012, I will have a 6 yr boy, 8 yr girl and 1 yr boy plus 2 adults. We will be spending 7 days, is there any advice for how to make the most of our visit and to make it budget friendly?

    Hi Jessica,

    As you are wanting to make your visit budget friendly, I would recommend staying at one of the Disney Value Resort hotels which are big on fun but small on cost. This will ensure that not only will you be staying in the heart of the magic but will also mean that you will be eligible for all of the Resort hotel benefits which include complimentary Airport transportation via Disney's Magical Express, extended theme park hours and the possibility of adding the Disney Dining Plan to your package stay.
    Thinking of budget once again, I would suggest that you opt for Magic Your Way Base park tickets which allow each member of your travel party entry to one theme park a day for each day of your ticket. Bearing this in mind, I would then recommend that you aim to spend one full day at each of the four theme parks as well as allowing at least one day to enjoy your Resort hotel pool, Downtown Disney and time to visit some of the Deluxe Resort hotels which are all decorated beautifully for the holidays.

    I would then suggest that you spend your remaining two days re-visiting your family's favourite two theme parks. 

    I hope that this information has been of help and would be more than happy to assist you further with your planning should you want to ask any other questions.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
