Disney Castle Dollar Bills

You’ve heard it a million times. “Walt Disney World is too expensive!” Sure, the costs may seem overwhelming when you look at them at first, but there are plenty of ways to still have a memorable family vacation without breaking the bank. Here are some of our favorite ways to save money during a  Walt Disney World vacation!

1. Stay Off-Property

One of the biggest ways to save some cash on your vacation is by choosing a hotel option that’s off-property. There are many amazing Orlando area hotels and resorts that are more than accommodating for Walt Disney World guests. Set your lodging budget and shop around for a hotel option. Some resorts may offer transportation to the Disney parks, and there’s always taxi services, Uber, Lyft, and your personal vehicle if you plan on driving to Orlando.

2. Stay On-Property at a Value Resort

Don’t want to stray from the Disney magic? You can still find it on-site at a Walt Disney World value resort! With different locations, price points, food options, and themes, there are plenty of options for you and your family. Take a look at the five value resort options to see which best suits your budget and needs. There are resort options for families of all shapes, sizes, and budgets!

3. Pack Your Own Park Snacks and Drinks

Depending on where you go, the food and drinks in the parks can get a big pricey, so why not save some money and bring in your own snacks and drinks? This is an especially helpful tip for families traveling with small children, those who don’t eat much, or picky eaters. Park security will allow guests to bring in their own food and drink (no alcoholic beverages or glass bottles), which guests can snack and sip on throughout the day. There are water fountains around the parks, plus quick service counters will give you a cup of ice water for free. It’s amazing how much you will save on food and snacks during your trip!

4. Use Grocery Delivery Services and Eat Meals In Your Room

Staying in a room with a kitchen? Don’t like eating out and spending lots of money on food? Why spend money on meals when you can cook in the comfort of your room? There are grocery stores near the parks, and with services like Garden Grocer, you can get your groceries delivered to your resort room for a small fee. If you don’t mind cooking while on vacation, definitely give this a try a few times throughout your stay!
