Save Money on Your Disney Trip

Save on Food

One of the larger expenses during a vacation is the cost of food, even more so when dealing with a larger group of people. Try to find a cheap hotel or vacation home that includes kitchen utilities such as a fridge, microwave, kettle, etc.

Take advantage of this by stocking up on food during your stay. This way, you can save on expensive meals, and replace them with more affordable options. In particular, this is useful for young children, who may be picky eaters. Minimize stress and cost all at once.

Rent a Car

Though there is debate as to whether a rental car or public transport is more cost efficient, having a simple, reliable way to get around in California is priceless. Instead of paying taxi and bus drivers money every time you want to go somewhere, rent your own vehicle.

This way, you have the freedom to go wherever you like at your own pace and enjoy beautiful California on your own time. Aggregators such Kemwel and Kayak are good resources as well as Expedia and Travelocity.

Vacationing to Disneyland doesn’t have to be scary. Follow some of these suggestions and you’ll be well on your way to having a great time. Relax, and enjoy the magic of  Disneyland.
