1. Ditch the Dining Plan
The Disney Dining Plan is meant to help guests save money, but you’ll only see the benefits if you intend on eating out often and choosing high-end restaurants during your stay. Some guests feel that they end up wasting money because they don’t assume a vacation style that the plan is intended for. On the plan, you end up paying for whatever food you eat or don’t, so it boils down to what works best for you. If you want to be economical, there are plenty of other ways to do so.
There are several ways to save money on your Walt Disney World trip. The key is to find what works best for you and your family. You first have to decide what parts of the Disney experience are most important to you and then start making compromises. When in doubt, create a budget and plan your trip accordingly.
