Traveling to Walt Disney World is a fun and exciting time for the entire family, but there’s no denying that the entire trip can become quite costly. If you’re willing to pay full price for park admission, and can handle staying in an on-site resort, you probably won’t worry about money and can spend your trip anxiety-free. For the budget conscious traveler, the concept of discount Walt Disney World vacations is like a dream come true all on its own!
One of the best things you can do for yourself while planning your Walt Disney World vacation is to research all the different agencies and options you have for buying your admission tickets. Often, travel websites and agents will have some super-hot deals on park admission, with discounts as steep as getting 5 days admission for the price of 3.
If you think there is any possibility that you’ll return to Walt Disney World again at any point in your life – and who wouldn’t want to! - the best bang for your buck is purchasing ahead of time a Magic Your Way base ticket without expiration. What does that mean? That means that if you plan to spend 5 days at Walt Disney World this year, and another 5 days sometime down the road, you can purchase a 10-day ticket with a small non-expiration surcharge, and use the remaining 5 days of admission in the future! In the long run, this is a fantastic option, since the cost of admission per day decreases as you add more days to your base ticket.
Another way to get a great discount Walt Disney World vacation is to seriously look into staying at a value resort. It may not have all the extreme comforts of a deluxe resort, but Disney Value resorts are a great way to stay longer than you thought you could afford, and experience the magic of Disney at spectacular savings! Value resorts still have state-of-the-art architecture to awe the senses and themed pools, but instead of including expensive restaurants inside the resort, most value resorts will have a casual, family-friendly food court with affordably priced meals.
The four official Disney Value resorts for those looking to create a discount Walt Disney World vacation are: Disney’s All-Star Music resort, Disney’s All-Star Movies resort, Disney’s Pop Century resort, and Disney’s All-Star sports resort. These resorts also come with complimentary shuttle service from the resort to all the theme parks and attractions!
Disney’s Value resorts also may not have all the in-room amenities as the full service resorts, but if you’re looking for discounts, you’re probably a family on the go anyway! And how much time are you really planning to spend in your hotel room? For a few extra dollars, you can request a room with a fridge, and hairdryers and irons are available for use upon request at the front desk. What’s more, you’ll still have the convenience of an in-room safe, voice mail, and cable television for winding down after a busy day.
Although planning your Disney vacation may seem like an impossible task, discount Walt Disney World vacations are a reality!
