    I am a single mother & my 2 sons ages 12 & 10 are going to DW for the 1st time 6-29-09! Any helpful tips on savings are appreciated. We have the 5 day tickets non hopper & are staying in Kissi. FL...Thanks

    Hey Leigh and how exciting to be headed to WDW for your son's first trip.  They are lucky to have you as their mom.
    The first suggestion I would have in saving money would be to eat breakfast at your hotel or on the way to WDW.  Although I love most of the morning treats that can be found in the parks, you will save money by eating before you head out.  Also, if possible, pack your own snacks and water bottles.  I just returned from WDW and I saw more people than ever with their lunches packed and water bottles galore.  This too will save you a great deal of money.
    If you do eat at a restaurant and the plate looks larger than what your boys would eat, have them share a meal.  That is quite okay to do, and again I saw many kids sharing a basket of chicken fingers.
    But most importantly remember to have the time of your life.  Your sons are a great age to go to WDW as they will never forget this trip.  I hope you have a magical time and thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel with your great question.
