Cheap Disney vacation packages and options

I did a quick check on Walt Disney World for special deals for a friend. This is my husband's favorite vacation destination. My friend is going to be happy with what I found out. We have been several times and always manage to get a fairly cheap Disney vacation. I'm glad to be able to pass the news on to her.

My daughter stayed a off-property once and it was a pain. After her experience, I am convinced that staying on the property is worth the few extra dollars.

Staying on the park can help make your getaway a cheap Disney vacation. Park transportation easily takes you from doorstep to and with ease. You don't have to drive to the lot, find a space, park and spend on that money on gas and parking. It saves you time and money. Plus, there are perks like Extra Magic Hours that you can use.

Another way to get a cheap Disney vacation is to look for packages. Right now, you can save up to 30% at select resort hotels. Travel dates are available from the end of September through mid-November. Some dates are also available from late November through just before Christmas.

Eliminating food costs helps make for a cheap Disney vacation. I saw found packages that include free dining. Details are online for both the free DisneyDining Plan and the free Disney Quick Service Dining Plan.

An annual pass may help save money if you want to visit the parks frequently. As of the time of this writing, the annual pass is just over $700 for adults and includes a park hopper option. You also get discounts on dining, merchandise, resorts and more. Get full scoop online for this cheap Disney vacation idea.

I didn't find any cheap Disney deals for the campground. If you have a tent or RV, then this is the place to stay. We had such a great time when we stayed here that I'm probably staying here next time. Trails and amenities add to the fun.

Being able to take your own food into the parks helps make for a cheap Disney vacation. When we stayed at the campground, we took sandwiches and drinks. You can't bring a cooler on wheels. Insulated backpacks or insulated lunch bags are the way to go.
