One of the questions people often ask me is how to save money on a Walt Disney World vacation. I will typically talk about going during "value" seasons or at times when Disney is offering the free dining plan. I will also discuss inexpensive restaurants or how to maximize your use of the Disney World transportation system to avoid spending money on a rental car. However, these are only a few of the ways to keep your costs down. I have recently come across an amazing website that provides us with a very comprehensive and current way to save while on a Disney vacation. It is called MouseSavers.com.
MouseSavers.com has been around for about ten years and is an extremely popular site. It is hard to believe that I hadn't come across it sooner. Although Walt Disney World is at the top of the list of discounts, the site also covers ways to save money at Disneyland and on the Disney Cruise Line. In addition to saving money on a Disney vacation, it includes information on finding the lowest airfare, rental car prices and even non-Disney theme parks and attractions. In a nutshell, using MouseSavers.com is like consulting with a completely free travel planner who will help you stay within your budget and find you the best possible deals.
When it comes to saving money at Walt Disney World, MouseSavers.com covers it all. You will learn the best times to book your vacation for maximum resort savings to specific ways to get reduced rates on park tickets. All of the research has been done for you to make your decisions easy. For example, you might be a AAA member with an annual pass who is also a member of the military. You would have three potential ways to save some bucks, each one giving you a percentage of savings. You simply choose the best discount available. In addition to specific discounts, MouseSavers.com is full of tips and advice to save you money. They give you great ways to keep your meal costs down as well as ways to save money on souvenirs. This site even talks about ways to maximize your time while touring the parks, which in turn allows you to see more while spending less.
MouseSavers.com was founded and continues to be run by Mary Waring. She gets over 3 million page views per month, maintains a newsletter mailing list of over 326,000 subscribers, and has a Facebook page with over 48,000 likes. There is a good reason for its popularity. There is simply no other website that is as informative on how to save money on a Disney vacation. I am a veteran of close to thirty Disney World trips and I'm simply amazed at the number of discounts and deals available that I never knew about. I won't plan another trip without consulting MouseSavers.com.
Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward. See ya real soon!
