Travel tips

Dine on a Budget

If you have a small appetite and you’re on a small budget, then order from the kid’s menu. It’s usually significantly cheaper and it fills you up. You will also want to plan out your meals ahead of time to help you make a good food budget. Walt Disney World has a full list of dining locations on their website that’s well organized with prices listed. This will help with your planning tremendously.

Free Photo Opportunities

Chase Card Members who have a Disney logo or Disney inspired debit or credit card can have special free photo opportunities throughout parks like Epcot (once character meet-and-greets return).

Take Advantage of Free Package Delivery

Stay at a Walt Disney World resort hotel and receive free package delivery of your park purchases to your room. Hipster Power Tip: Book an Orlando vacation home near Walt Disney World with an experienced company to save money on lodging.

Treat Yourself to a Dole Whip

Walt Disney World magic can be found all over the resort, but one must have treat that encompasses all that enchantment is the pineapple Dole Whip. There was a time when obtaining this legendary snack was hard to come by, but since the demand has skyrocketed over the past few years. You can now find it in multiple locations if you know where to look. Read: Where to Find Dole Whip at Walt Disney World

Use an Official Disney Travel Agent

Book your vacation through an authorized Disney vacation planner to make sure you’re saving the most on your Disney trip. Disney vacation planners usually have the latest and newest deals that Disney offers.

Book an Early Character Breakfast at Magic Kingdom.

This will allow you to enter the park before everyone else and give you quite the head start into conquering each ride and attraction. You can do this at Cinderella’s Royal Table.

Experience Disney Springs

Disney Springs is a wonderful shopping and dining attraction that you must experience for yourself. Not to mention that the entry to Disney Springs is absolutely FREE!

Take Advantage of the FastPass+ Grace Period

It’s my favorite secret regarding FastPass+. You can arrive 5 minutes early or 15 minutes late to your fast pass.

Grabbed the Perfect Fireworks Spot

When watching Epcot fireworks show, pick a spot where the wind will not blow smoke directly on you. This may vary based on the wind direction of the evening.

Arrive at the Parks Early for Rope Drop

At Disney World, the rope is slowly pulled aside a few minutes before people are allowed to pass. You can get many of the popular rides done before 11 A.M. This leaves you time to watch some shows or circle back around to your favorite attractions. This tip is especially important on the hot summer days in Florida. You can ride all the best attractions, have lunch and watch a show all by 12 P.M. Once the sun gets crazy, you can go back to your hotel room to relax and then come back in the evening times.
