    I would like to know if you have any special deals on a family 5 who are very low income. My brothers dream is to take his family to Disneyland but just can't afford it. Is there any packages that are affordable?

    Hiya, Tami, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It’s great to have you hEAR!

    First off, you are an amazing sister for looking out for your brother… that warms my heart! I truly hope your brother is able to make his dream come true by bringing his family of five to the Disneyland Resort! I have a few suggestions for ways to save money on theme-park tickets and hotel stays. 

    If your brother is able to plan his trip at least a few months in advance, he can utilize the payment plan option on Vacation Packages. For Packages, there are weekday discounts offered Sunday through Thursday. I recommend entering different dates into the Disneyland.com website to compare pricing during different times of the year to see if he can save some money that way. Also, I recommend opting for a Good Neighbor Hotel Vacation Package, since Good Neighbor Hotels are normally priced less than the Disneyland Resort Hotels. Good Neighbor Hotels are Disney-approved nearby hotels listed on the Disneyland.com website for your convenience. In addition, since your brother has a family of five, he may prefer to stay in a Good Neighbor Hotel like Staybridge Suites Anaheim Resort Area or Best Western Plus Raffles Inn & Suites, since both offer two-bedroom suites for up to eight people. 

    There are also ways to save money inside the parks, starting with packing your own food and drinks. You may bring a cooler or backpack into the parks, so long as it doesn’t exceed 24” long x 15” wide x 18” high. Also, loose ice isn’t allowed in those containers, so I recommend utilizing re-usable ice packs to keep food and drinks cool. There’s even a handy Picnic Area where food can be enjoyed just outside Disneyland Park, with rental lockers nearby for storing any coolers or bags you don’t want to carry around after your meal. 

    Your brother can also keep his eyes on the Offers & Discounts page for any upcoming promotions or deals. 
    I sincerely hope these tips help your brother and his family achieve their dream of visiting the Happiest Place on Earth! 

    Keep believing... wishes do come true, Tami!
