    I am a single mother of two girls 13 and 10. They have never been to Disney and I would like to take them for springbreak. When I do planning online the trip end up being $4000-$5000. Is there any way to make this any cheaper?

    Hi Keitisha!

         Whoa - that is a lot of money!!!  Depending on when your Spring Break is, your trip may fall during the special Buy 5/Get 2 nights free promotion.  If not, you can still save a lot of money by checking out a great website -  This website will list every available discount and can often help you to save up to 40% off of Disney World hotels.  I'm not sure what hotels that you were looking at online, but I can assure you that the Value Resorts are awesome!  In fact, if you ask my boys what their favorite Disney World hotel is, they always answer Pop Century.  The food court and pools at the Value Resorts are amazing and the theming is completely over the top!

         When looking at your ticket options, be sure to buy only what you need.  If you don't plan on going from park to park on a single day, then the basic ticket is fine.  Be sure to look at what they are offering you online - sometimes the most expensive options pop up first.  For instance, you want to pick the standard view room in whatever hotel you choose.  There is absolutely no reason why you couldn't chop that budget in half and still have a great time!

    Much pixie dust,
