    Hello, thank you for taking my question we are a family of 6 and we will be at the park the last week of July. We will be off site and want to keep cost down as much as possible what would you suggest? Thanks

    I have a family of six too John so I understand where you're coming from!  Here are some ways you can cut on costs for your trip:

    -eat a hearty breakfast before you arrive for a day of theme park touring
    -just purchase base tickets(skip on park hopping and water park options)
    -bring snacks (granola bars, fruit leather, etc.) instead of buying popcorn and churros
    -give your kids a minimal souvenir budget and stick to it
    -eat your largest meal of the day (be it lunch or dinner) at an off-site location
    -while at the resort, utilize Disney's complimentary transportation system to get you from point A to point B

    If you do all of the above, I think you'll find that a Walt Disney World vacation can be quite affordable, even for a family of six!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
