Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • I want to take my two sons ages 11 and 6 on vacation this summer and we are exploring our options. As a single mom of two I want to do something fun but conservatively/ affordable. Any advice for staying and visiting the theme park affordably?
  • - Asked by Anne on 3/9/2013
  • It can be done, Anne.  First of all, I would suggest staying in one of Disney's value resorts.  Doing so allows makes you eligible for complimentary round-trip airport transportation and saves you from having to rent a car or hire a driver.  Disney's value resorts are a real value for budget-conscience guests!  Secondly, skip pricey ticket upgrades like the park hopper and water park fun and more option; while these are great perks for some, they are certainly not necessary to have a good time!  To save money when you arrive, you might consider eating a small breakfast in your room.  Bring along dry cereal and paper bowls.  You can pick up a carton of milk in the resort's lobby.  For the remainder of your meals, dining in mostly counter-service locations will save you money.  Also, do consider traveling during value season when room rates are the lowest. 

    I hope these money saving tips give you a great start with your planning, Anne.  Don't hesitate to follow up with me if I can be of further assistance!
