8 Ways to Save Money at Disney Parks

8 Ways to Save Money at Disney Parks

To many people, Disney World is notorious for being the happiest place on Earth. Unfortunately, it can be the most expensive place on Earth, too. It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in all the Disney magic on a trip, and before you know it, your wallet is nearly barren. Here are eight foolproof ways to save money at Disney parks.


Bring Your Own Food and Snacks

Many don’t know that Disney parks allow guests to bring their own food into the parks. With the exception of alcohol and glass containers, and as long as it does not need to be heated, you are free to bring whatever food you desire into the parks. Snack combinations are endless. Just make sure to inform a Security Cast Member that you have food when you enter the parks.

Bring Your Own Snacks

Bring Your Own Refillable Water Bottle

A bottle of Dasani water is $3 at Disney. If you buy five bottles a day in the parks for a weekend trip, you’ll spend what is an easily avoidable $45. Carry your own refillable water bottle of choice around the parks for a free and easy way to rehydrate. You can bring your own plastic water bottles as well, but a refillable one allows for less waste and space taken up in your bags.

Check Your Eligibility for Discounted Tickets

Disney offers discounted tickets for AAA members, members of the United States military and Florida residents. If you are a member of AARP, you will also be able to find affordable senior vacation packages through Expedia. There are also many other special offers available through the Disney website.

Stay at Less Expensive Disney Resorts

If you want to have the full experience of staying on Disney property, consider one of their cheaper resorts. Disney resorts are categorized by Value, Moderate and Deluxe Disney resorts and villas. For a lower price range, consider staying at one of the Value resorts, such as Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort or their Art of Animation Resort.


If you have some price flexibility, check out their Moderate resorts, such as Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, or The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort.

Stay at Hotels Off Disney Property

If you’re trying to save money in the long run, your best bet is to avoid staying on Disney property. There are a plethora of affordable and quality hotels to choose from in the Lake Buena Vista area, with many even offering free shuttles to and from Disney.

Don’t bother with Memory Maker

Unless you’re absolutely certain you need to have access to every single photo of you on Splash Mountain, save yourself $169 and avoid buying Memory Maker. Chances are you’ll have tons of photos of you and your loved ones on your phone that don’t need to be taken by a PhotoPass photographer.

Visit during the “off-season”

Although Disney doesn’t have an official “off-season,” it’s clear that some months are more hectic (and in turn, expensive) than others. Check out crowd calendars to help determine the best days to visit.

Magic Kingdom

Skip buying souvenirs

Why would you spend $40 on a character plush at a park when you can find a similar one for half the price at Walmart or Target? Unless you really need that Moana mug from Magic Kingdom, you can save a lot of money by simply skipping out on something can be found at any local shop.

With these tips, you’ll get the best bang for your buck at the most magical place on Earth. If you need any help getting around the Disney Parks, Yellow Scooters has many rental options available for you to choose from!
