    Is it possible for Me to go to Disney World on a Budget?

    Hi there, Travis! Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Travis a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation is possible on any budget! 

    The Walt Disney World Resort offers hotels in four categories: Deluxe Villa, Deluxe, Moderate, and Value. I have stayed at the Value resorts more times than I can count and I personally recommend Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Not only has Disney's Pop Century Resort been recently renovated but both resorts are also in close proximity to the Disney Skyliner. The Disney Skyliner allows you to be whisked away to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT in record time, without ever having to step foot on a bus. 

    On our last visit, we elected to stay at a Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotel. These off-site hotels have been vetted by Disney and are often available at a little lower price point. A few Disney Good Neighbor Hotels, mainly those located at Disney Springs, also have some of the same benefits of an on-site Walt Disney World Resort hotel including 60-day FastPass+ selections and Extra Magic Hours. Our off-site hotel provided breakfast so we ate at the hotel before heading into the parks. We also always bring our own cooler stocked with waters and snacks so that we are not spending extra money in the park. 

    When you are looking at tickets, if you are not a frequent visitor you can skip on the Park Hopper and that will help you stay under budget; however, I always recommend purchasing the Memory Maker because your photographs will be truly priceless. 

    I hope that this helped, Travis. Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help as you plan your magical vacation!
