Have you ever think about spend a vacation at Disney World on a budget? It may be a dream to travel to Disney Park for many people as it is quite costly. It is easy to understand that the cost will continue to grow but only, for this reason, we can’t leave our dream to visit Disney world, isn’t it? Let us discuss today, how we can make a plan to visit Disney World under our budget.

Tips for planning a trip to Disney World on a budget

Many of you may be planned for a vacation at Disney World on a budget at a different time. But due to lack of proper direction, you could not succeed with your plan. So today, here I’m going to discuss some tips for having a successful vacation at Disney World on a budget. At the light of the experience of those who have successfully completed their trip at this park on their fixed budget. Let’s start:

Keep basic element in your choice

Try to choose all basic elements related to travel like transport, hotel, visit area, meal etc. Suppose airline, rental car, and personal drive these are the option of transportation. Try to choose that option which will offer you the minimum cost.

Try to make a vacation plan on off pick time

If you plan to visit Disney World with your family then try to make it at off pick time. Usually, at pick time, all type of cost related to the tour is become very high, especially the rent of hotel. You can save around 25% to 30% hotel cost by planning your vacation on off pick season. There is another benefit of visit off pick season is you can avoid the crowd because at pick season, sometimes Disney World becomes overcrowded.

Choose your transport wisely

Before select, your transport compares all the options carefully. Airline service often offers a discount for the Disney rout but if you want to visit with your family and suppose your member is 7 or 8 then I don’t think the discount offer can save your money. The cost of 8 plane ticket is quite expensive and it can overflow your limited budget. I have a nice idea for you! Why don’t you drive own with your family? It will not only save your money but will give you a pre-vacation mood also.

Try to take the necessary regular used goods from home

If you have a baby then definitely you need some necessary goods for all time. Such as baby food, extra cloth, some toys, stroller etc. The better job is you should research a little bit on what to bring to Disney world parks before packing. The benefit is that you can take all the necessary goods from home and cut the chance of extra cost of buying necessary goods from outside.

Take your own stroller

If you have kids in your team then stroller is essential. As the Disney World has a big area, without a stroller you may not manage your kids. Though the park authority offer to rent a stroller from them as you are bonded by your budget you should bring your own. There is a lot of variety of stroller in the market which is suitable for Disney World. Again try to research on which are the best strollers for Disney World and make your selection. Stroller smaller than 36”X 52” will be allowed till 30th April 2019. Please note that you cannot carry stroller larger than 31” X 52” from 1st May 2019.

Try to be cheap on the meal plan

It may become an excess cost if you want to purchase a meal from the Disney meal plan. Some hotel offers free breakfast under the package. The money-saving plan is, try to have your breakfast at your hotel room or roadside food shop and pack your lunch from here also. Trust me, it is a 100% working money saving plan if you can prohibit completely Disney meal.

Look for Disney offers

These kinds of park usually give different offer throughout the year. Some of them are seasonal like little bit discount for off pick season visitors. A special offer may be listed for the family of current and retired military person. Sometimes they announce an offer for the residence of some particular place like California, Florida etc. So don’t forget to have a look at the official website of Disney World before make your budget.

Don’t forget to take your rain protection

According to the experience of those people who have already visited Disney World, you should bring your rain protection or ponchos from home. During summer, rain may come any time and if you are not prepared, you may have to pay plenty for renting Disney rain protections. So, the wise and money-saving decision is that, not only for kids but also for all members, you must bring your own rain protection from home.

Try to use a Disney property

Are you surprised? Thinking of how can you use the Disney property under the low budget plan? Actually, some experienced visitor shares their ideas and I think they are not wrong. First of all, if you used Disney transport then you can easily save the parking fees. And you know that the per day fee is &20 and now calculate again your budget!  According to the expert’s opinion, you should stay at the Disney hotel also. These hotels are under budget and quite well-maintained also.

Be tricky on buying your tickets

If you are going to drive your trip under package then there is nothing to worry about the ticket. But it not, then try to be tricky on buying it. How? You can buy your ticket from an authorized third party in advance instead of Disney. Usually, these party offers to the visitors saving the discount around 5-20% than Disney price. It may more or less time to time. Is the savings is little? If make an addition of this kind of small savings, definitely you will get huge savings budget plan, right? Are you happy now! If you don’t want to buy the ticket from these parties then there are many other cheap sources. Such as, along the way of Disney World, you will see many advertisements for selling the ticket at a cheap rate. Be very careful to deal with them, they can be scams.

Don’t expense much on souvenirs

Since you want to make Disney World’s vacations in the budget, you should not spend more on souvenirs. If you want to shop something for your kids then the best job is to look for any clearance sells or deals on famous online shops like Amazon. Another way is you just keep your eyes on the clearance section of the local Disney Store and shop for some toys and give to your kids at the park.

You can be a little bit tricky here also. Ask your kids to make savings from their own pocket money. Encourage them to start saving from few days ego of vacation. This tricky idea will give you at least two benefits. One is your kids will habituate of savings and your vacation will be pass easily under budget.

Others way of savings

  • Buy a saving jar and start saving from today and encourage the other members also.
  • Save extra income like holiday allowance, X mass bonus and save the budget for birthday celebration by skipping it.
  • Try to save from daily expenses. Carry your daily lunch and avoid having breakfast and snacks at outdoor.
  • Try to cut out some small expenses. Like walk for a near destination, cut off at least one coffee daily or limit your budget for evening snacks. All of these may save only &2 per day but multiply with 360 and get a big saving for Disney World vacation end of the year!

Vacation at an expensive place like Disney world is not easily affordable for all. But the dream has no bound and no limit. Isn’t it? I hope the tips I have discussed above will help you plan a trip to Disney World. Make a plan successful along is quite a hard job. So try to involve all members of your family who are excited to be accompanied by you.
