“How much money should we save before even booking a trip to Disney?”
If you are looking just at what the trip costs and not at options such as financing, you might be surprised at how affordable a trip can be!
For the sake of discussion*, I’m going to send you on a five night, six day dream vacation!
*for the sake of discussion….in other words, pay your own way, sister!
Prices are based on two adults and two children since any child under the age of 3 is free, free, free!
Transportation: Purchasing four tickets and holding your little babe on your lap will cost you about $900 with fun Gotta Get Away airfares currently available. Don’t mind the 10 hour drive? You’re looking at about $150 in gas.
Free Dining: If money is a concern – and let’s face it…it always is – then take advantage of special offers from Disney when planning your vacation. Travel during the value season and visit when Free Dining is offered! Get a hotel room with a fridge, take some breakfast items and snacks, and never have to pay for park food!
$1550! A week of fun for a family of five for just over $1500 – more or less than you thought?
