    Hi, Amie!

    A Disney Vacation can be adjusted to fit many budgets.  There are many ways to save on your vacation without losing any magic!  Here are some tips for you:

    -Start saving now!  Many grocery stores sell Disney Gift Cards, and my local store even offers perks for buying gift cards.  Pick up small denominations and put them in a safe spot.  Use these for food, tickets, souvenirs, or any purchase on your WDW vacation. 

    -Book using a Special Offer.  Fall deals should be out soon, so keep checking to see if you can get free dining, discounts on rooms, or some other offer that can be a big savings.

    -The most economical room will be a standard room at a Value Resort.  My family really enjoys Pop Century in the 50's section.  Some rooms have a pool view, or even a lake view!  All at a Value price!

    -When selecting park tickets, go for a base ticket.  Adding options such as hopping or water parks is nice, but leaving those options off can be a huge money saver. 

    -No need to rent a car!  Use Disney's Magical Express to get to and from the Orlando Airport.  It is free, and what a nice break to not have to drive during your vacation. 

    -Bring items from home such as autograph books, pens, sunscreen, and rain ponchos.  These can all be purchased at  WDW, but you will save a lot of money by bringing these items from home.

    As you get closer to booking, let me know I can help you with your planning. Have fun plotting out your November vacation!
