Disney vacations do NOT come cheap – they take a lot of planning, and a lot of saving too –but they are worth EVERY penny – and a penny saved here and there can add up! Read on for some tips to help you save for your Disney Dream vacation:

Make A Vacation Fund Jar: Gather up some cute stickers/pictures/ribbons and decorate a plain jar to be designated as your family’s “Disney vacation fund” – where you can stash any loose change you have hanging around. Before you know it, it will add up and help you get that much closer to that Disney magic!

Divide And Conquer: We all divide up our paychecks based on our bills and budget needs, but what about setting aside a slice of that payday for Disney? Most banks allow you to setup recurring transfers- where you can set how much/how often money is moved to a savings or other account you have designated for your vacation money. Set it to move $10 each payday, and you will be surprised at how little you miss that $10, and how much that $10 helps beef up your vacation fund

Make Do With “One Less”: One less dinner out per month, one less purchased lunch, one less latte, one less movie outing…you get the idea. Just getting rid of one outing/extra expense per month allows you to still go out and have fun, but lets you save some money towards Disney too! Besides, doesn’t staying in and cuddling under a blanket while watching Frozen sound better than going out anyway?

Utilize Store Discounts/Perks: Purchasing Disney gift cards at places that offer a discount is a great way to help pay off your trip – Target’s Red Card offers 5% off, and warehouse stores like BJ’s sometimes sell these at a discount as well. The Disney Chase Visa credit card is another way to earn Disney rewards – $1 for every $100 spend on the card

No matter what your method, all the saving and planning will pay off for sure when you finally get to take a trip to Walt Disney World (aka the best place EVER!)
