As I stated in an earlier post, we recently returned from a trip to Walt Disney World. I had discussed one way of saving money on hotel rooms if you’re driving, but now I want to dive a bit more into other ways to save money on a Disney World trip. This week I’m going to focus on special offers and Disney gift cards.
- Special Offers – When you go to Disney World to price your trip, you’ll likely see across the top of the page a place to enter in the dates of travel and how many people will be in your party. If you want to find the best deals though, you should go all the way to the bottom of the page and look for a link to their special offers. If you go through the normal booking process on their site, these discounts will not automatically be applied to your trip so it’s best to see what is available first. If they release a deal after you’ve booked your trip, you can give them a call and they will apply it for you. Check the special offers page often.
- Gift Cards – You can pay for a Disney trip with gift cards and the best place to get Disney gift cards is at Target with a REDcard. With the REDcard, you can buy gift cards at 5% off. You can even buy extra cards to use while you’re at the parks. After you’ve found the best offer available for your trip, take 5% off with gift cards from Target using the REDcard. If you don’t live near a Target store, they can be shipped to your house through Target.com for free.
Check back next week as I cover the Disney World Dining Plan and whether it’s a fit for you and your family.
