This time of year, many parents are planning their trips to Disney with their kids. Disney is an experience everyone should have at least once in their life. However, it can be costly, especially for a large family. The cost of basic essentials like tickets, food, and lodging can chew up your vacation budget. Fortunately it is possible to keep your costs low and still have a great time. Use these tips.
1. Breakfast in your vacation home rental near Disney.
A box of cereal, slice of toast, and glass or orange juice are significantly cheaper than buying breakfast in a restaurant. By using a vacation home rental in Orlando, Florida, not only do you save on hotel costs, but you have a full kitchen to prepare your own meals.
2. Purchase Disney tickets in advance.
If you’re spending time in Disney you will want to see all the parks. Most people can’t resist. Rather than purchase your tickets one-by-one as you arrive, pick up Park Hopper passes for your entire party for the duration of your stay. These passes allow you to enter and exit any park at any time. The Park Hopper is cheaper per park than if you bought tickets at the gate. You can also get a discount by buying more at one time, so get a big group to go together.
3. Bring food and water into the park.
Believe it or not, Disney doesn’t prevent you from bringing your own food and beverages into the park. Meals inside the park are usually expensive, from $30 to $70 per person at some of the restaurants. Even basic food like hot dogs and hamburgers can run you $10 to $15 per person. Bring snacks to hold you over until you get back to your vacation rental, and save your water bottles so you can refill them at fountains.
4. Pack all of your essentials.
Orlando is a heavy tourist destination, so the prices of your basic necessities are higher than anywhere else. Don’t eat into your budget by buying $8 bottles of sunscreen. Pack anything you think you’ll need in your suitcase and avoid making purchases in gift shops.
5. Search for deals
Whatever you do, don’t use the Disney hotline to book your trip. You’ll end up paying full price for everything. Do your research. If you want to attend a special attraction, Google it first. You will find coupons, promotions, and codes all over the Internet, especially during the less popular vacation months.
6. Share accommodations.
It might be tight, but share accommodations with friends and family. You might pay an extra fee for sleeping more people in a room, but it’s less than the cost of a whole extra room. This another great reason to use a vacation home rental near Disney over a hotel room; they sleep more people comfortably and the costs are easy to split.
