Saving Money at Walt Disney World

We all know that it ain’t cheap to go to Walt Disney World. But, we also know there are ways to minimize the pain once we arrive there. Here are just a few ideas to pass along to you. These are not in any specific order.

1. Whether you are on the Disney Dining Plan or are paying out of pocket, consider sharing some of your meals. Most eating establishments serve meals large enough to easily share with one or two others, especially kids.

2. Take snacks or packed lunches into the park. It is allowed and a great way to save a few more bucks! And, don’t forget to bring some water. If you have the ability, freeze some bottled water and put them into a backpack to keep you cooler as you walk. As the day goes, you will have plenty of water to drink. If you take a cup with you, ask for ice and water at any counter service food stop.

3. When considering hoppers, think about how you want to tour the parks. Depending on your length of stay, it may make better sense to add a few extra days on your tickets and maximize your time in-park. In my opinion, Hoppers are best for shorter visits.

These are just a few ideas. I’d love to hear what you might suggest. Please post your thoughts on this blog to share with other readers.

Thanks, and have a blessed and magical day!!

I am a Disney fanatic who can't get nearly enough time to be there! I am married to someone who isn't as into it as I am, but tolerates my "hobby". I live in Ohio, but would love to make the move to Orlando, if I would work either at Walt Disney World, or in some peripheral business serving the WDW area! I invite you to read, comment, and submit ideas anytime at Or, even better, send me a trip report to share with others! We all like to live through the experiences of others, help us stay connected to the magic! Thank you!!
