    hello, iv been planning to go to disney world for some time now and i was wondering when would be a great time to go and the best way to save some money there will be 2 of us going maybe 3.

    In my opinion, the "best time to go"  to Walt Disney World is late September/early October, but in all honesty any one of my Moms Panel friends might give you a completely different answer.  I like to visit in early fall because the weather is still warm, but not unbearable and the crowds are more manageable than during peak summer months.  So, too, do we enjoy visiting Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and Epcot's Food and Wine Festival, both of which take place during that time of year. 

    As for getting the biggest bang for your buck, I advise skipping the park hopper option, eating breakfast in your resort room, utilizing complimentary Disney transportation, and setting aside (and sticking to!) a souvenir budget.

    Have a magical vacation!

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
