Save money by taking advantage of Disney World special offers, deals, and discounts on room, park tickets, and dining packages.  Free dining plans are a great way to save your dollars if you are planning to stay at a Disney Resort hotel.  There are several different Disney Vacation Packages to choose from.

7.  Child Care

Parents can enjoy some “alone time” by taking advantage of Disney’s babysitting and child care services.  “Kids’ Nite Out” is a company recommended by Disney for reliable and professional child care services.  The sitters are over the age of 18 and are certified in child/infant CPR and basic first aid.  They will stay in the room with your children, or just hang out with the family as a father’s, mother’s, or grandparents’ helper.

8.  Dining:  Hungry?

There is no shortage of great dining venues at Walt Disney World.  Choose from quick service, table service, character dining, buffets, or fine signature dining.  If you’re just wanting a snack, vendors with frozen treats, popcorn, fresh fruit, beverages, bottled water, etc. are located throughout the theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs.

9.  Minnie Vans

“Minnie Vans” are a relatively new transportation system offered at Walt Disney World.  It operates on the Lyft app.  You will be driven to your favorite Disney destination in small or large vans that are specially designed with Minnie’s familiar red & white polka dots. Since the drivers are Disney cast members, they will happily answer any questions you may have about your destination.

10. Gum

There is no gum sold anywhere at Walt Disney World. The reason is to try and cut down on gum waste on sidewalks, attractions, and outdoor furniture.  If you want gum, you will have to bring your own, and please dispose of your used gum in trash receptacles.
