Avoid Making These Money-Wasting Mistakes On Your Next Disney Trip
If you can visit Disney World during off-peak times, you'll avoid crowds and save a ton of money on things like park hotel rates, ticket prices, and airfare.
Peak Periods
According to Ziggy Knows Disney, "As a rule, January, February, August, and September are the cheapest seasons, as long as you avoid any holidays in those months."
Staying at a Disney hotel has many advantages, but you don't need an overly luxurious and expensive room as long as it's clean, comfortable, and spacious.
Expensive Hotels
According to Urban Tastebud, basic bottled water costs $3.75 at Disney World, and SmartWater is $5.75 a bottle. It’s better to bring your own water bottle to refill.
Bottled Water
Food and snacks bought at Disney World can cost a fortune. Luckily, Disney allows guests to bring their own food, so pack things like cookies or fruit snacks.
Food And Drink
If outside food isn't an option, try to stick to snacks and Quick Service restaurants, which are cheaper than other dine-in options at Disney World.
Park Hopper passes are good for short trips to Disney World, but many visitors are better off paying standard ticket prices and spending time at one park per day.
