    I am planning a trip with my Girl Scout troop on a Girl Scout cookie budget help!

    Hiya, Allison. I'm happy to offer some money-saving tips that will help your troop experience some Disney magic! When I was a Girl Scout many years ago, we would end meetings by singing a song about making new friends while still keeping the old because one was silver and the other, gold. I can't help but wonder if that song is still being sung.

    Trips down memory lane are always appreciated, but let's get back to your question. First and foremost, I recommend choosing a resort hotel in the value category. That will get you off to a great start. You might also keep an eye on the special offers page to check for any discounts that apply to your travel dates. Of course, complimentary transportation is available for Disney resort guests so you can skip renting a vehicle.

    You can also stretch your budget by enjoying breakfast in your resort room. All resort hotel rooms at Walt Disney World feature a mini-fridge. My family tends to keep milk and boxed cereal on hand when we vacation. Other inexpensive and portable breakfast items include granola bars and fresh or dried fruit. You might also want to pack some snacks to enjoy while you're touring the parks. When it comes time to dine in the theme parks, selecting quick service or fast casual locations will minimize expenses.

    I hope those tips will get you off to a great start, Allison. Don't hesitate to stop by planDisney again if you need more help. After all, we're all about making new friends around here.

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
