There’s no way around it: a trip to Disney World is likely going to be an expensive vacation. But there are ways to keep your costs down as much as possible, even while doing and seeing (and eating) everything you want to. Going to Disney can easily break the bank, but you can also do it on a budget and still have a great time.
Here are ways you can save money at Disney World while still making the most of your trip.
Book a vacation package.
If you know you want to stay on Disney property, one of the best ways to save money is by booking a vacation package, which bundles your park tickets and hotel all in one, according to Travel and Leisure. The parks run different specials depending on what time of the year it is, and if your family is big on eating and visiting sit down restaurants, you may also want to consider adding the Disney Dining Plan. It only saves you money if you know that you want to eat at the more expensive restaurants and that your family is going to seriously chow down.
Bring your own food into the park.
If you’re on a super tight budget, one of the ways you can cut costs is by bringing your own food. Depending on how much cash you have to work with, this could mean bringing cereal or fruit to have for breakfast in the room and then tucking a couple of granola bars in your backpack for a snack later on, or you could even bring lunch into the parks if you wanted to. Disney allows you to bring food and drinks right into the park — minus alcohol and anything in a glass bottle — so feel free to save money this way.
Stay outside of Disney property.
As tempting as a Disney resort (and all the perks that come with it) can be, you can have just as much fun and save money by staying off property. If you’d like to stay in the Disney bubble, the Disney Springs resorts are in the middle of the magic for a much lower cost and come with the benefit of Extra Magic Hours in the parks. Outside of the Disney bubble, there are major savings to be had, between hotel chains and Airbnb rentals everywhere.
