8. Stay off property
While staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is an incredible experience, it can also be an expensive one. Staying off-property can be a great way to save some money and still have a fantastic Disney vacation. Many local hotels offer free shuttles to the parks, so you can skip the rental car and parking fees. Resort Area Hotels (also called Good Neighbor Hotels) are often on Disney property near Disney Springs, but aren’t actually WDW resort hotels. You can get some good deals by booking a package deal that includes your park tickets, your stay at a nearby hotel, daily breakfast, hotel parking, and a shuttle to the Disney parks. Check it out – it might be a great way to save some money for your family.
