    I have a reservation for July. I want to reduce the overall cost and am wondering if I can switch resorts mid stay?

    Hi Joshua, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Yes, you can switch hotels during your stay and bell services will even transfer your luggage so you don't have to worry about the logistics. Two of the Value Resorts are specially great to do that: Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort. By staying at a Disney Hotel you will also have access to complimentary transportation services and will not worry about a rental car, fuel or parking expenses.

    To save money on tickets, it is also wise to budget for 1 Park Per Day Tickets and plan itineraries and complimentary FastPass+ reservations considering one Theme Park visit per day. The FastPass+ service is a great money saver because saves you time!

    Some restaurants can also be great money savers, and not all of them are Quick Service locations, like Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria at Epcot. It is a Table Service, but its pizzas are so large that they're perfect to eat on a budget. On the Quick Service side, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe at Magic Kingdom Park, Flame Tree Barbecue at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and ABC Commissary at Disney's Hollywood Studios have menus with large shareable portions for good prices. To save even more on food and beverages, just ask for water at Quick Service locations and you'll get full cups for free!

    If you need more help before July, please, come back, Joshua. We love to help fellow Disney fans create unforgettable vacations.

    May the magic be with you!
