There is nothing more magical than knowing how to plan for a Disney vacation in style. It can be Disneyland or Disney World. Kids get indoctrinated at a young age with the Disney Channel, Disney Toys, Disney Theme Parks, and so on.
As a parent, we do not have a chance, right! 🙂
Well, one thing we can do that is fun for people of all ages is planning a Disney vacation. Disney is a great place to visit for the entire family.
It can be expensive. You need a plan of attack so you do not sweat all of the details as they pertain to money. Food is expensive in the park. So are souvenirs.
Depending on the time of year you could spend a small fortune just on bottled water. It can get hot and humid, especially in Orlando in July!
All of these things are why you need your own customized Disney plan so you can focus on having a good time. Here are some tips on how to plan for a Disney World Vacation.
What Is Your Budget?
This seems pretty basic, but I am surprised at how many people get the cart before the horse, not only here, but in life in general. You need to know how much money you are working with so you can then begin to find ways to save and plan what you will do when you get to the Disney Theme Park.
When you customize your own family game plan, take advantage of everything available to you. Use the Internet to find ways to save and stretch your budget. Time spent upfront is time well spent later on.
When Planning A Vacation To Disney – Timing Is Everything
This theme park is known for long lines. No one wants to spend three hours waiting in line for a ride.
To save time as well as money, book a trip to Disney during the offseason. From the middle of January to the middle of March is a great time to visit Disney.
Mid-September to the middle of November is also an ideal time to visit. Tuesdays and Thursdays are the days during the week when the park is the least busy.
I understand this is not always possible, but it is worth looking at if you can take advantage of any little time savings.
Buy A Disney Package
Disney has a number of packages that will make things simple when booking a trip. There are packages that include hotel stays, admission to the park, as well as airfare.
These packages can be booked with a travel group or by a Disney travel representative. It is best to stay somewhere at the resort to save time.
Resort guests receive free transportation to and from the airport. There is also the option to enter the park early before regular opening time.
Disney has a busing system that is second to none. You will never find yourself waiting in line for your bus for more than 5 minutes.
Take Advantage Of Discounts
There are many discounts available to the Disney traveler. There are many organizations such as AAA that have a number of discounts. Military members can also enjoy reduced fares.
Look at staying at a Disney hotel and packaging it with your park tickets to save money. This can be worth a discount of 20% or more depending on the time of year.
Have A Game Plan When You Arrive
Before visiting Disney it is important to make a list of the must-see attractions. Your family can also note the time of special shows and other exhibits.
This will allow your family to develop a plan of action. They can see these attractions first and anything else interesting along the way. This way all of the family members get to see what they want on this vacation.
When you have a plan and are staying a whole week, you may find yourself going back to a family favorite. Having a plan should have some time built into it for flexibility just in case.
Use A Travel Agent
It certainly is tempting with the Internet to try and do all of this stuff by yourself. However, that may not always be the best idea.
Travel agents don’t work for free, but often the amount of money that they charge you to handle booking your trip can be paid for just in the savings they are aware of that you may not be able to research online.
Travel agents have inside information on all the great deals that don’t show up on other websites. Not only that, but they do this for a living and can save you a whole bunch of time and bottles of aspirin. At the very least it’s worth checking out to see if that might be a worthwhile option when planning for your Disney vacation.
How Will You Get There?
The last thing I want to touch on is how are you going to get to your Disney destination? It’s tempting to drive and try to save money this way.
I know I grew up in a family where my dad seemed to like to drive everywhere no matter how far it was. I can never remember flying anywhere on a family vacation and a lot of our vacation time was spent in the car getting there.
If there’s any way possible to fly to your Disney destination this certainly is worth considering. This is going to allow you to spend more time in the park and the areas around it.
You may even be able to adjust where you are staying on the Disney grounds by staying somewhere a little less expensive and adding another day at the end of the trip with the money you save.
Conclusion On How To Plan For A Disney Vacation
These tips will help a family book the perfect vacation to Disney. It is one of those trips of a lifetime every family should try and get to at least once. In the future, it will be the trip that comes up when talking to your grandkids about vacations with their parents.
Don’t Have The Money For The Vacation?
It may seem that you will never get the money to go to Disney with your family? Wrong! You can start a business and take the time to grow it so that you will not only afford the Disney vacation, you can even walk away from your full-time job down the road.
