10. One Year Out - Select Travel Dates Early and Strategically
When it comes to planning a Walt Disney World vacation, earlier is better. Researching Disney Park pricing, crowd patterns and accommodation options a year prior to your desired vacation time means you will have time to save money, and plan the perfect trip. Crowd pattern research will tip you off quickly that ticket and resort prices are higher during busier park times. Decide how much wiggle room you have in your vacation budget, and decide on the dates you will be visiting Walt Disney World for your next vacation.
9. One Year Out - Target Money Saving Options
With cash back websites, credit card rewards and gift card options today, you can stow away some cash to put toward your Disney vacation. Take the time to explore cash back credit card options to ensure you receive money back on your Disney Park tickets, resort rooms and flights/travel costs to Orlando. Deciding on payment options a year out means you have plenty of time to accrue cash back points throughout the year on regular expenses. Gift Disney gift cards to family and the kids during holidays and birthdays throughout the year to offset souvenir costs on your vacation.
