When You Go & Where You Stay Impacts Your Budget

Money Saver Monday!!!

Happy Monday Guru readers!!

Saving a buck or two can go a long way when planning travel to Walt Disney World. There are a lot of expenses involved in a trip to the world. To some extent you have control over prices as long as you are flexible with your travel dates and where you would like to stay.

When you go to Walt Disney World, has a huge impact on your travel budget because Disney is constantly changing their pricing based on the season. For example, if you choose to stay at a deluxe category resort such as Contemporary during the most expensive time of year, such as end of December, you can expect to pay $2700 more than if you went at an off peak time such as January.

Where you stay has an enormous impact on your Disney budget because Disney has tiered resort categories. Staying at the Contemporary instead of Pop Century during the low cost season will cost you up to $2,400 more.

Putting these all together, staying at the Contemporary during the highest cost time of the year instead of at Pop Century during the lowest cost time of the year—costs you a whopping $5,100 extra!!

When planning your trip you have to think about what is most important to you...length of stay or category of your resort? Do you really need to visit Walt Disney World during peak season, or can you go and save money during off season?

Most important is to plan, plan, plan!! If you plan to visit Walt Disney World, research your trip before you choose your resort category, or season in which to travel. You will feel so good knowing that you did your homework and saved your family enough money to go again in the near future.

See you real soon!
