Traveling to Disney World is the most magical time of year to travel to Disney. With Christmas trees and holiday decorations all over the park, it is also the most expensive time of year to travel to Disney. Here is a great list of ways to make your holiday trip to Disney affordable.
Stay Off Disney Property
Staying off property can save you hundreds of dollars a night. You still stay at accommodations near Disney World Orlando and even book a resort that has theme park views. A great way to save big is to book through our website www.orlandovacation.com! Plan to stay at a resort that has free shuttles or use our discount codes to help save big on car rentals. You can also book a vacation home rental that has a full kitchen. Disney dining is outrageously priced, so any meals you can prepare yourself will help you save big. We cut the average cost of a Disney World trip in half compared to staying onsite.
Buy Gift Cards from Target
Using a Target Red Card to buy Disney gift cards saves you 5%! You can use Disney gift cards on Disney dining and merchandise. The average cost of a 4-day Disney World vacation for a family of 4 that stays on Disney property can be around $5,000, which saves you $250!
Instead of buying Disney products at the parks, bring them ahead of time. Buying Disney merchandise at the parks can cost much more than buying them on Amazon or Walmart. Surprise the kids when you get to Disney with some of their favorite character toys and put the extra cash towards ticket prices or dining experiences.
Skip After Hours Merriest Event
Disney World’s Very Merriest Event is a separate ticket price from the regular admission park ticket. The party does not start until 7:00 and if you have little ones, they can be tired, cold, and complaining about hurting feet by the time the party starts. Spend the morning and afternoon at the park and skip out of this after-hours event. You will still be able to see all the Christmas decorations throughout the park and can still have a great holiday celebration at the park.
The price of vacations to Disney World during the holidays can quickly add up and these tips can save you hundreds on your holiday trip. Traveling to Disney during the holidays is the most popular time to go for a good reason, so make sure you book your trip soon!
