1. Book early
If you know exactly when you want to go, start planning and booking as early as possible. If you want to stay on property, check for non-peak times and the most affordable rooms so that you can spend the bulk of your money on tickets, food and souvenirs, and not just on a place to sleep. If anyone in your party has any sort of discount, such as an annual passholder or Florida resident, consult with them and see if they can purchase the room and have everyone pay them back. You’ll also save more money if you purchase your tickets online rather than waiting until you get to the parks and purchasing individual tickets each day. Booking early also gives you the opportunity to decide if you’d rather fly or drive, if possible.
