    I am a single mother of an 11 year old daughter whose dream has always been to go to Disney World.. I work very hard everyday and unfortunately I am not able to afford that trip.. Are their any options for our situation?

    Hi Tammy! Give yourself a pat on the back for being a great Mom! You want to make your daughter's dreams come true...and at Disney that's absolutely possible. You just need a plan and we're here to help!

    Visit the Special Offers page and start by planning your trip during value season Jan 2 - Feb 16 and Aug 14 - Sept 29 the lowest rates of the year and usually the least amount of guests in the parks. For your Disney resort, consider a standard room at Disney's All Star Music Resort, Disney's All Star Movies Resort or Disney's All Star Sports Resort. These are the most economical and value priced on property resorts.

    Next add Magic Your Way Base Tickets for your dates and nothing else! This is all you'll need because a Magic Your Way Base Ticket gets you entry to one Disney Theme Park a day every day of your ticket. For this trip plan to visit Magic Kingdom Park, and either Epcot, or Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I suggest adding the Disney Dining Plan because it's a great savings compared to paying out of pocket for meals. For airfare you can see what pricing options come up on the reservation site, and compare with other travel sites like orbitz or expedia etc.

    The best part is by planning far enough out, you'll have time to pay your vacation package off in installments making it affordable for your budget. When you book your package, all you need to pay is a $200 deposit plus any airfare included in the reservation and then you you can take your time to pay it off all the way up to 45 days from your arrival date - then the final payment is due. Be sure to come back with any other questions you have!
