Disney World

Visiting Walt Disney World during summer vacation is probably one of the must-haves for families with kids. Unfortunately, fearing that the cost of visiting the Happiest Place on Earth is too high, some families may decide to skip this sort of entertainment and opt for a cheaper vacation. To discourage you from doing that Promocodes2015.com offers some useful money saving tips that will help you stay within your budget. Of course, kids are sure to have the time of their life at Walt Disney World, especially if they adore Disney movies and characters. So taking them to Disney World can be well worth the expense. With the following cost saving ideas you are sure not to spend more than you have to!

  1. Skip the Food in the Park

The fact is that the food you will get at most amusement parks, including the more expensive Epcot, is the ordinary cafeteria food. Now the worst part of it is the price. For three adults and two kids, you will have to pay as much as $70. To cut down you food costs skip eating at the park, and get premade food from a nearby grocery store or consider making your own lunch. Or you may just pack snacks for quick meals as you walk around the park. Also, if you don’t want to spend $3 on water make sure you bring your own water with you.

  1. Limit Your Disney Memorabilia

Of course, no visit to Walt Disney World would be complete without purchasing some Disney memorabilia to take home with you.  But to avoid spending too much you had better have a plan, because near every attraction, you will be offered lots of gifts. To keep costs down consider picking your own pearl at the Japan store at Epcot (just $15.95 plus tax), or getting a special tradable collection pin that you can trade with Disney cast members or other guests. If the souvenir you purchase is tied with some sort of experience at Disney World, it will become a real keepsake to be cherished for years to come.

  1. Take Disposable Ponchos with You

The chances are that it might rain during your vacation. To enjoy your visit to Disney World without getting drenched to the skin go to a local Dollar Tree and purchase disposable ponchos for just $1. You can also buy one at the resort for around $2.99 or at Disney World at as much as $9. Ponchos sold at Disney World are probably more durable, but consider whether they worth the cost. For example, for a family of five, the Disney ponchos will cost you $45 instead of just $5 for those bought at the dollar store. Or you can just pack the rain jackets you already have.

  1. Skip the Park Hopper Option

If it’s going to be your first visit to Disney World you probably won’t use the park hopper option as there’s so much to see and do in each park. Just ask yourself if you need the park hopper option to be added to your base tickets. Unless you’ve already been to the parks and know exactly what you want to experience at each park, it will be wasted money for the whole family.

  1. Save $17 on Disney Parking.

Disney World visitors pay $17 to park at the theme park lot without repaying the parking fee for the day when going from one theme park lot to another. If you plan to stay in one park, you can completely skip this expense. In fact, most non-Disney resorts offer free shuttle service to and from the park and all Disney resorts offer free transportation for guests as well. Of course, if you prefer to be on your own schedule without worrying about the shuttle schedule then parking is your best choice.
