    This is going to my kids first time to Disney World. They are 10 and 8. I would like any information you can give me about how to save money and ensure that we all have a great time. Anything you can tell me will help, because I feel overwhelmed. Thanks

    Hi, Julie!!

    Hmm..well first I would recommend visiting during the Fall.  If your kids have Fall break its Value Season at Disney World.  We always go during Fall break as the difference in cost can be a few hundred dollars.  I would recommend All-Star Sports, All-Star Movies, All-Star Music, or the Pop Century Resorts to stay for your first trip.  I recommend a good breakfast at the food courts and a late lunch these meals are generally the least expensive meals.  My kids carry granola bars in their fanny packs and each a water bottle.  There are Disney Character meet and greets at all of the parks, so you don't have to attend a character meal to meet some of your Disney favorites.  Check your company to see if you can purchase tickets through your corporation, sometimes you can save money.  Hope this gets you started!!!  Have a fabulous trip!!
