    We are planning our first Disney trip since my childhood. This will be DH and DS (age 4) first trip. How do you think crowds will be 9/25-9/30 and any suggestions for budget/kid friendly?

    Hello Lindsey! I think September is the perfect time to visit Walt Disney World, as most  schools will be back in session.  You will enjoy low crowds and perfect weather which will allow for plenty of time in the wonderful resort pools, or exciting water parks.   I myself am a frugal gal and love to save money whenever I can.  Here are some tips I suggest to help you and your family enjoy Walt Disney World without breaking the bank.
    • Stay at a  Walt Disney World Value Resort:  With larger than life icons, themed pool areas, and delicious food courts a stay at these budget friendly resorts is a must.
    • Make use of the Disney Dining Plan:  It is a great way to save up to 15% off the cost of food during your stay.  Be sure to take advantage of character meals so your son can meet his favorite Disney pals. 
    • Make use of Disney's FastPass+ feature:  ‚ÄčThis is a great way to schedule a time to experience some of your favorite attractions in advance, allowing more time to explore other areas of the resort.

    I could go on for hours talking about my favorite Disney tips, but I am running out of space.   If you have any additional questions please feel free to come back and ask.  I hope you and your family have a magical vacation filled with unforgettable memories.
