    I am trying to plan a vacation for me and my boyfriend for December in disney! It is both our first times to Disney could you help keep it under 3,000$?

    Oh Boy, Megan, that’s fantastic! You’ve come to the right place, we here at planDisney just love being able to help all Guests, including first-time visitors, plan for their trip. Let’s begin!

    The entire cost of your vacation will depend on a few things so I do have a couple of questions for you. How many days are you planning on visiting? Will you be Park Hopping? Last question, are you looking to stay at a Disney Resort? All these decisions will impact your total cost. When my family is on a tight budget, we usually stay at a Good Neighbor Hotel and visit the park for a few days. If you are a hotel fan, then you can do the opposite of what my family does and stay at a Disney Hotel and lessen your number of park days.

    I recommend adding your hotel and tickets to your cart and playing with your dates to find the best deal. Sometimes it is better to book your trip as a package, where other times, booking them separately is the better deal. Just remember that after you’ve purchased your Theme Park Tickets, you will want to make sure your Theme Park Reservations are linked too.

    Megan, I hope these questions help kick-start your trip. Be sure to let us know if there’s anything else we can help with or do to help you finalize your trip.

    Have a Magical Day!
