5. Stay on Property
While it can be easy to be drawn in by great prices at off-property hotels, I recommend trying to find special rates at resorts on Disney property, even if it means paying a little bit more. Otherwise, the money that you would save by staying at the off-property hotel would probably be around the same price as the Disney resort after the addition of parking fees at the parks. Additionally, though some non-Disney hotels offer shuttles to the parks, they are not as convenient as Disney transportation because they typically arrive for pick up less often and increase commute time by stopping at many hotels along the way.
