    I would like to visit disney for the first time with my family. I have three children ages 15,12 and 7/ but everything I have looked at is so expensive. Any advice on visiting disney on a budget?\Thanks for any advice.

    Hi, Tammy!  WDW has some great vacation options for all budgets!    Since you want to stretch your Mickey Dollars, here are some tips for you!

    -Avoid traveling during Peak Season (holidays, mid-summer, spring break.)  You can get much better deals during Value Season (September, January, and other slow times.)

    -Keep checking for Special Promotions at   Deals such as free dining, or "Buy 4 nights Get 3 free" offers are often available, so try to book using a promotion.

    -By staying at a Disney Resort, you will get free transportation to and from the airport and all your transportation around Disney property is included.   This is a huge savings over car rentals, parking tolls, and gas.

    -Purchase only Magic Your Way Base Tickets.  Do not add pricey options such as park hoppers or water parks.  

    -Bring some items from home to keep your vacation costs down:  refillable sports/water bottles, autograph books, rain ponchos, and dry snacks such as crackers or cereal bars.  

    -Sign-up at , , and for their free e-newsletters and special offer updates.   This will keep you posted on all the great deals in Walt Disney World.

    Have fun planning, and I hope you find a vacation that fits your budget!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
