6. Consider value resorts
Take a long, hard look at what you want out of your vacation. If you want to lounge in your room all day, you probably want to splurge a little on a moderate or deluxe resort. However, if you plan to be thrill seeking at the theme parks from dawn til bedtime, a value resort should work great for you and can save you hundreds on room rates. The value resorts have great pools and food court options and all offer complimentary bus transportation to the parks. Especially if you go off season, you can sometimes find value resort rates for far less than any other options.
