How to Book a Disney World Vacation Cheaply

As charming as a vacation to Disney World is, not everyone has the means or money to experience one. Most people who plan for a Disney World Vacation must save up every last penny – but did you know there is an affordable way to realize your dream Walt Disney World vacation? Maybe Cinderella was right when she sang: “the dream that you wish will come true.”

Various travel agencies offer affordable vacation packages that are worthy of your attention. Some packages include hotel accommodations, meals, and round-trip plane tickets. Once they book you and your family’s vacation, you’re that much closer to experiencing some magic moments, via Disney.

Contrary to public opinion, not everything at Disney World costs money. Disney’s Boardwalk, for example, is built around a lake and is beautifully themed to represent 1940’s Coney Island – and it is totally free to walk around and enjoy with your family. Also, jugglers, comedians, fire-eaters, jazz ensembles, and other entertaining street performers make appearances on the boardwalk. And if you don’t mind spending a little money, plenty of vendors along the way sell inexpensive treats.

For a cost, but a small one, why not take a trip over to the Disney Carnival? Kids can play cheap games and watch all the sites. For a more relaxing night out with the family, you can just sit and watch the friendship boats come and go. For a livelier night, though, the Jellyroll’s offer evening sing-alongs of your favorite pop tunes. The Atlantic Dance hall, too, sports live bands and there is no cover charge.

In Downtown Disney, there is a vibrant shopping and restaurant scene. Whether you’re out to spend money or just browse, it’s an exciting place for you and your family to go. Some of the best free entertainment at Disney World is here as well – including the interactive fountains (watch out, you might get wet!), and the Lego imagination center (thousands of Lego blocks and already built sculptures are there for your amusement). As well, free magic demonstrations at the Magic Master’s Shop are always a thrill; you can learn how to do tricks!

After a tour of the resort, you’ll certainly be ready to eat. Wolfgang Puck Express, Planet Hollywood, and House of Blues all offer inexpensive dining and a sundae and shake at the Ghiradelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop is a nice way to end the evening.

A Disney World vacation doesn’t have to be expensive – simply know what packages interest you and where to find the free and cheap entertainment and food. Just remember, “when you wish upon a star, your dreams will come true.”
