    Are there any sponsored or discounts for kids that can't afford the Disney experience?

    Hi, Latuna! Welcome to planDisney!

    Walt Disney World has always been pure magic for me, especially because I know how much my parents sacrificed to take us. My first trip to Walt Disney World was thanks to my dad squirreling away part of his income tax returns for a couple of years and Grandmom paying for the hotel. Best vacation ever, because I knew how hard it was to get us there.

    I wish every kid could have the magic of a "Disney Experience." While there is nothing officially done by Walt Disney World, there are a handful of charitable organizations that try to help send kids on Disney vacations. You can Google search to find one currently active, but know it's a tough task.

    There may be options, though, if sponsorship is impossible to find. Look for Special Offers, Deals, & Discounts. Especially as a Florida resident, you can almost always find an offer that will help bring costs down. If you book a vacation package, you can make payments after the initial deposit. You pay a little at a time as opposed to the whole amount immediately. It may also help to work with a travel agent. Using them usually doesn't add anything to the cost of your trip, and they can help save you money by monitoring special offers and helping you stay on track with your payments.

    Latuna, I am sending you all the virtual pixie dust my heart can carry. I hope the kids get to enjoy the Disney vacation they deserve so that all of you have memories to cherish for their lifetimes.
