    We are planning a vacation week of October 6th thru 13th there will be a total of 11 of us. We have never been to Disney World and wanting to spend 4 days in parks we would like someone to help us with some cost savings tips

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Chris! Thank you for stopping by and for directing your question my way!

    I’m so excited you are planning your very first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! I hope it’s the first of many unforgettable vacations to the place where the magic is endless.

    As a budget conscious mom, the first thing I do when planning a Disney vacation for my family is setting a realistic budget. Once I know how much I wish to spend, I can then look at ways to make it happen. With some faith, trust, and pixie dust, I know you’ll be able to have your dream vacation!

    I love being able to purchase a package that will cover most of my expenses. That way, once I am enjoying the magic, I don’t have to worry too much about my wallet. Disney’s Magic Your Way Packages provide just that! You can customize your package to your needs and budget; including resort hotel, park tickets, and dining plans that will make budgeting and planning a breeze!

    When you stay inside the magic, the benefits are many. Complimentary transportation, Extra Magic Hours, your MagicBands, and more. My family adores the value resort hotels, like our favorite, Disney’s Art of Animation.

    Another great money saving tip is to bring snacks, or a light lunch, to the parks. By only purchasing one meal at the parks per day, you can save. Keep in mind the park rules regarding what you can and cannot bring into the parks.

    My space here is limited, but I hope this gives you a head start in your planning! Please do come back again with any more questions and we'll help make this the most magical vacation ever!

    See ya real soon,
