It’s no surprise that kids want to go to Disney land – characters coming to life, spectacular shows and rides and attractions that make you feel as though you’re a part of it. All parents want to make their kids dreams a reality, so we’ve looked into how you can ‘do’ Disney Land on a limited budget – conserving your funds best in the best possible way.
There are several strategies that can be put in place – many people don’t really understand just how much money you can save when planning holidays if you go about doing things wisely.
Seek Out Coupons
With many coupon sites available such as MouseSavers.com, you can do Disney Land cheaper if you make use of these. Some offer free ticket admissions to the park with your stay, but do have the requirement of staying for a set amount of days. If it fits your itinerary, make use of it!
Consider A Multi-Day Pass
When it comes to purchasing pass tickets, generally, the longer you stay, the cheaper it gets, so do consider staying longer in one area rather than moving around to cut costs.
Depending on your budget, this could mean forgoing other attractions however such as Universal Studios, SeaWorld, as well as the Kennedy Space Center. But look out for passes and coupons for these attractions too!
Make Use Of Free Transportation
Almost all main hotels will have DTS (Disney Transport System) in place to take you from the hotel to the theme park, so make sure that you are making good use of these.
They can easily save you money over the course of your trip.
Go During Low Season
The low season in Disney Land is late August until September and then again in January, so to save money, visit during these months at a discount. There will still be a great atmosphere around these times and the weather is sill bound to be great.
Consider Free Attractions
Don’t overlook some of the free attractions that are available as well. This includes the ferry, the water-borne floats of the Electrical Water Pageant between 9 and 10:40 pm nightly as well as the monorail.
These are great attractions for the whole family and won’t put a dint in your budget.
Consider The Disney Dining Plan
If you’d prefer not to dine in fast food restaurants the entire trip, consider a Disney Dining Plan. There are several plans available – you can choose the one most suited to your budget and needs. There is plenty more information on this here.
Know The Hotel Perks
While staying in the Disney-run hotels in Florida will cost you more than some of the cheaper hotels around the vicinity, they do come with some added perks that could have you recouping your costs and then some.
For example, you’ll get free parking on site and have ‘extra magic hours’ access at the parks, which can help you stretch your US dollars further if you can go during non-peak hours when the parks are open to the general public.
For the early birds or the late night owls, this can be a great option.
Above are just a few of the main ways that you can save money when you go to Disney Land. While this can initially seem like pricier vacation if you let it, it really doesn’t have to be.
Instead, seek out methods to keep your spending lower and you can easily plan a budget-friendly vacation for your family. You’re bound to have a magical time whatever the weather.
