There is nothing that’s more magical than a trip to Disney World – the fairytales, the castles, the exciting rides, and all of a person’s favorite animated stars brought to life. However, with the cost of a Disney vacation continuing to go up, it is now considered one of the most expensive vacations anyone can take. The good news is, there are a few tips that can help reduce the costs of this magical vacation, which are found here.
Stay on Property
There are some who may make the argument that on-site hotels are too pricey. However, visitors get much more from staying on-site than just a room to sleep in. For example, there are around the clock, complimentary shuttles to all the Disney parks, no need to keep parking and paying the high parking fee at each park, access to Magic Hours, and more.
There are both value resorts to consider and even an on-site campground with RV hookups. It is also possible to utilize a service like DVC Magic Resales, where finding great deals is always an option.
Purchase the Tickets Up Front
It pays (really pays) to plan the vacation in advance. Each extra day that is spent inside of a Disney Park is going to reduce the cost of admission overall. Also, Disney tends to increase entrance fees each year, so it is a good idea to plan ahead before the increases occur.
Consider Visiting During Non-Peak Times
Even though holidays are a festive and fun time to visit, they also mean disaster when it comes to costs and crowds. Spring Break, New Year’s, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and all summer long are the busiest times of the year. However, the period between mid-January to March and then from late August to early October usually offers the most appealing and affordable deals.
When it comes to visiting Disney, there are more than a few factors to consider. The information here provides a great starting point to plan the perfect and most affordable vacation possible. Being informed and knowing what to look for is the best way to ensure a great time is had by all.
