We always pack large lunches & water on trips to save money. Take good wearing shoes, not new ones & cool clothes & caps or hats. It's always hot in FL, good luck.

Use a baby stoller to carry the lunch you'll pack to eat each day. Pack plenty of individual cold beverages. cold sandwiches and chips taste great when you are at the park. We used a soft sided cooler for the lunches, but use anything you have. Fruit and cookies help the day go better.


We chose a hotel that had a mini kitchen with a refrigerator. When we arrived in Orlando, we went to a Walmart supercenter and bought cold items for the lunches...meat, etc. We brought the other foods from home. (We traveled by auto train to Florida. We didnt have to rent a car.)

Buy rain ponchos at the Dollar Tree for one dollar. I got two in a package. They helped for some of the rides where you get wet. But I would consider them invaluable if it rained.

Dont buy souveniers at Disney. Buy them at Walmart or other store in Florida. I must say though that we were able to purchase t shirts on sale at Disney World. YOu just have to look around. there were very nice sale items available.

Check online with Ebay to see if you can get tickets to Disney World cheaper. Sometimes people buy tickets for several days use and only use one day. Then they sell them cheaply on Ebay. Good luck.

LOL I take it you people aren't from Florida. I am, it's not that bad if you take water, water, water, and a water cooling fan. Make sure you go to the dollar store or walgreens before arriving the park. Pick up some hand held fans (preferably those rechargeable battery) operated ones where you can put double AA batteries in. Then Recharge for 20 minutes while taking a break in your hotel.


Now Get those ponchos as well at walgreens. Cheaper there to. Oh cause it rains often during the summer time, nOW during the busy months November-May now that is not as rainy so don't worry so much about the puncho's but still it's Florida.

Disney tickets (Often Time shares have discounted tickets) They like you to tour their buildings to try to get you to buy their properties. However you don't have to agree you just have to give them your time and you get discounted tickets. There is a requirement it's based upon your income. We didn't meet the deadline....darn it.

Also, Another search engine would be Disney's own website sometimes just calling their 1-800 number you can ask the clerk do you have any discounts.

Again, I also want to add. I have bought the Mickey Mouse that you see in shops where it plays games and tells about the park. IT'S very interesting when you take it to each park you learn lots of facts about the park. It might be a bit pricey now I'm not sure what we paid for ours. We still have it. It does take more batteries. Like I recommend Buy RECHARGEABLE at best buy or walgreens. It's MUCH easier to stop at your hotel room for a 20 minute break to recharge your batteries, go to the bathroom, refill your water bottles, and put ice in your cooling water fans.


Oh and Save your change for those pop machines.

If by chance you have saved enough money and don't want to make and pack lunches and have to find a place for breakfast and dinner, Disney has a meal plan. It is more expensive than packing lunches of course, but much cheaper than the price you would pay for meals if buying them on disney property, such as in the parks and resorts without the plan. For a family of four: two adults and two children we payed about $100.00 each day for the meal plan. This covered a huge sit-down meal such as a character breakfast or lunch, or fancy dinner(the usual cost of any one of these was close to one hundred dollars). It included a counter meal including drink and dessert, and a snack and beverage. We added it up if purchased without the plan and it would have costed about $200.00 dollars a day. Good luck!
