How to purchase a family Disney trip with first time????

Hi we want to go to Orlando Florida as our first trip with my husband and 2 boys. Can anyone help on how to get cheaper rates stay outside the park inside . I don't know anything about the park tickets etc. We live paycheck to paycheck and ny kids always ask to go? Please I need someone to guide me on how to purchase a disney package maybe I can start saving until next year. thank you

As a first-time visitor to Walt Disney World I strongly recommend that you book your vacation directly with Disney and stay on-site at a Disney Resort. Here are a few of the unbeatable benefits you get by staying at Disney:

– FREE Transprotation to all Disney Parks & Attractions
– FREE Airport Transportation & Luggage Transfer Service from Orlando International Airport
– Extra Park Hours exclusively for Disney Resort Guests
– Lobby Concierge (Park Tickets, Reservations, etc.)
– Clean, Family-Friendly, Disney Quality Accomodations

Disney offers a variety of resort types for different budgets so you dont have to spend thousands on just your hotel room. In addition, if you book a Disney Vacation Package with park tickets, accomodations, and dining plan included you will consolidate your expenses and could get a good deal. Be sure to mention your a First Time Visitor when you make your reservation. Here is the link to the official Disney World site:

or call (407) W-DISNEY (934-7639)

Have Fun!

  1. Do a web check of Disney World and the Orlando Fl. area.
    Also, check the travel sites. Remember that the weather may be different from what you have. I seem to remember something about a camp grounds,being part of Disney World.

    Good luck with the planning and the trip!

  2. There is no cheap way to go to Disney – my kids have wanted to go since they were little – we finally went this year and they are now aged 12 and 16 – there is no point in going if you are not able to do everything that is on offer, it is worth saving for a couple of years and being able to do the lot. It was well worth the wait, we had a fantastic holiday!!!!

  3. If you are planning to fly to Orlando, I would highly recommend looking at staying at Disney. They have some deals for families of 4, which will include transportation to and from the airport, as well as around Disney World. We have found staying at Disney saves us several hundred dollars in car rentals and parking. There is a 7 day, 6 night deal at the value resorts for $1600 for a family of 4. You can get a refrigerator for your room for a small fee (free if you have medication needing refrigeration), so you can purchase milk, juice, etc., and we always bring food along – we pack bread in a container (so it doesn't get squished), peanut butter & jelly, cereal, fruit snacks, etc., then buy the milk and things at the gift shop. Disney also has a meal plan you can purchase which includes meals, beverages and snacks. If you are flying, keep watching for fare sales to Orlando – I've purchased round trip tickets as low as $133! Here is a link to Disney's 6 night, 7 day deal:

    Best of luck – it is a great trip you will all remember forever!

  4. As expensive as everyone likes to make it sound Walt Disney World is really a good value for your money. Watch the Disney website for special offers, http://www.disney.go.com they will often advertise on TV when they have specials also. Book directly through Disney, the phone number will be avalible on the web site and ask them if they have any special offers when you call. Look to the value resorts on property, these are Disney's All star Sports, All Star Movies, All Star Music and Pop Century. Pop is the newest and largest. By staying on the Disney property you will be able to use Magical Express for ground transportation to and from the airport which will save you $30.00 plus per person if you fly in. Also you can use extra magic hours, this allows you to enter one of the parks early and one might also be open late. You also wont have to worry about transportation from your motel to the parks, Disney has busses. Ask about the Disney Dining plan, they have offered the dining plan free the last couple of years during slower times, that doesnt mean they will next year but you never know. This will help you save money on food.

    When you book with Disney you will have to put down a $200.00 deposit with the rest due about 90 days before you check in. What this means is payment program and a chance to save. You have set a goal to reach. Put aside as much as you can and wait for specials, once you have some money saved call and ask about specials, then when you book put down as much as you can. If you book a year ahead of time you have plenty of time to save the rest.

    Since your on a budget make this first trip about 5 days, this will give you one day at each park plus an extra day to do things you might have missed. We always go with the park hopper option, this allows you to go to any of the parks all in the same day. You can use extra magic hours and also go to a park thats open later the same day you go to a park that closes early, this can help you do more while your there. Save some money for souveniers but dont go overboard they are expensive. Once your ready to go just ask about tips for doing WDW and people will give you plenty of help.

  5. the disney budget package is pretty competitive…there are no discount prices for the parks…save your money and come on down…you'll have a blast. I live in orlando and have stayed in all the hotels, the budget is still pretty good…you like it. The price is competitive with say a holiday inn or something along those lines…goo luck

  6. The 08 rates are not out yet, so keep checking the web site. I have always planned trips at http://www.waltdisneyworld.com and have been more that satisfied. The one saving I highly recommend is the dinning plan, and staying on the grounds, but I have never stayed off. I understand budgetting, I am a single mom. But with the way payments are allowed I manage a trip every other year with ease, including flights. We also learned to stay in the value resorts as we spend little time in our room. We usually leave by 7:30/8:00 and rarely return before 11:00/12:00 at night.

    I also recommend using the site to pick meals and calling for priority seating, this takes the worry and hassel out of the trip. If flying use the magic you way magic express. You are picked up and brought to the airport for free and they will put your bags in your room if you go to a park before checking in.
    If your kids are young do character meals, they are great for the entire family and when you kids become older they do not like to do these for the first time.

    I hope you make it and I know you will have a great time. Before our first trip I purchased two books on planning a vactation and they were very helpful. The best one was by a name simular to Birmbaums ( it is loaned out so I can not look at it at this time)

  7. You really don't have to be rich to come Enjoy Disney and Orlando. A lot of people recommend staying inside Disney Property, however, working with a budget I really wouldn't recommend it, specially since Disney Hotels can be a lot more expensive. I would definitely recommend however staying off-property, yet close enough to all the fun. Orlando and Kissimmee have some very popular tourist/hotels area close to Disney and Universal, and a lot of the hotels in these areas are very affordable.

  9. Stay in the park at one of the value resorts. You can get good deals at different times of the year. You can use their shuttles and you won't have to see your car for a week. Also, you can take advantage of the extra magic hours! Get the Meal Plan. It seems expensive, but will save you money in the long run. You can do fun character meals and go to other nice places and get plenty of food. You won't go hungry. Plan ahead and call the Disney number from their internet site. They are very helpful and you can make payments. We went with a family of four for 2,500 last year. It was well worth it! The best vacation we ever had.
