Easy Ways To Save For Your WDW Trip

TGIFCastle

Trips to Walt Disney World are so many things – amazing, fun, thrilling – but they can also be expensive (sorry to be the bearer of bad news…but its true!), which is why I like to do as much advance planning as possible to try and make sure I’m sticking to my budget. But there are plenty of great ways you and your family can save for your Disney trip:

Gift Cards: If you have a birthday coming up, or Christmas is coming, or you are planning a Disney honeymoon – then ask for Disney Gift Cards as wedding/birthday/Christmas gifts! They can be purchased at any store with a gift card center, and they can be used pretty much anywhere in the Parks – for food, souvenirs, and they can even be put towards your trip balance!

A Spare Change Jar: Put all those pennies/nickels/dimes/quarters to good use and toss them in a change jar to be used towards your vacation. Counting how much you have saved can be a fun family activity, and you can even decorate a container just for this purpose

Set Up An Automatic Transfer: Most banks that have online access (which is most of them these days!) have the ability to allow you to setup a recurring transfer – to move a certain amount of money from one account to another daily/weekly/on payday, etc. This is a great way to set money aside in a savings account or alternate checking account for all kinds of things – but I like to use it for a vacation fund! You probably won’t miss $10 a week, and $10 a week equals $520 a year saved for Disney!

One Less Meal Out: By decreasing the amount of times you eat out/order takeout by once a month, you can save a lot! It is much cheaper to eat at home (and usually healthier!) and you are looking at a savings of $20-$40 per month just by eating at home one more time a month

These are my top Disney money saving tips – mostly because they are EASY and EFFECTIVE and they help get me to that Castle sooner! But I would love to know how YOU save money for your trips to the Happiest Place On Earth?
