Accommodations

When planning your next trip to Disney there’s a simple way to save hundreds of dollars. With many others not able to make it to vacation at, Disney it’s time to take advantage. Many people who have DVC points are allowing others to rent stays at a big discount. This is a great deal to take advantage of because many of these rentals have extra space and kitchens to help you save even more money during your stay.

Ways to Save on Food / Dining

Many DVC rental units come with kitchens so you’re able to start your day by making breakfast or even meal prepping your week out. Another idea to save money while staying at a Disney resort is you have the option to have food delivered to your room. Whether you want to cook a meal or have something prepared the resort will not charge you for having a delivery being made to bell services. Additionally bringing your own water bottle or asking for free cups of water at any quick service can help reduce costs when it comes to buying beverages. Many of the parks now have refill stations for your reusable water bottles even in the ride queues. If you like snacks make sure to check out any seasonal offerings on popcorn refills at the parks.

Enjoy Free Activities

The Disney resorts have many offerings at no cost! You can explore Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and see many different animals from flamingos to giraffes. Close to the holidays you will find all of the resorts decorate differently and have great themes to see. Around Christmas time you can expect even a giant gingerbread house in the middle of the Grand Floridian lobby.  

At the parks there’s fun activities to enjoy as well that most people miss. A great free activity to do for people of all ages is Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. You can play this fun interactive game that gets you a deck of Disney character cards and a secret map. While helping your Disney friends you will get to explore the park and see areas you might have never seen before. There are activities similar to this at Epcot around The World Showcase such as Kidcot Fun Spots where your children get to craft their very own souvenirs.
