Disney World is a popular destination for tourists around the country and around the world. The "Happiest Place on Earth" is a destination especially popular for families with children. To save money on your next trip to Disney World, there are several deals you can take advantage of, many offered on Disney's website. Some package deals include flight, hotel, theme park tickets and two meals a day for as little as $58 per person per day.
When to go
The best time to visit Disney World is in the off season--basically any time that is not on a school break (spring, winter or summer break). Not only will you avoid the crowds and lines, but you'll pay less for your hotel and flight. Disney World's website also has a tool that highlights some of the best weeks to travel to the park.
Planning flights and accommodations
After you have decided when to travel, planning flights and accommodations is the next step. With large tourist attractions such as Disney World, package deals on hotel rooms and flights often can get you the best deal possible. First check Disney's Special Offers section on the website. Disney offers deals that allow you to bundle your flight and hotel; some include a Disney Dining Plan, which gives each person one free quick-service and sit-down dining meal per day on their trip, included in the package price. You also can check for packages on sites such as MouseSavers.com and EasyOrlandoVacations.com.
Getting discounts on activities
Often, you can save money on entertainment while at the park by planning ahead of time. MouseSavers.com has an entertainment section of its site dedicated to information on and links to special discounts on park tickets, shows such as Cirque du Soleil and more. Military personnel also can get discounts on Disney activities. Also check sites such as DestinationCoupons.com, which offers discounts and coupons to activities in the park and in Orlando in general.
