« back to First Disney Vacation
We are in the process of planning our first family WDW Vacation next year. It wil just be three of us including our daughter who will be 4yrs old when we go. We are on a budget and was wondering when is the best time to go financially?

Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited for you, my oldest daughter was 4 when we made our first family trip to Walt Disney World! In my opinion, I would schedule your vacation when the Free Dining promotion is running in order to save the most money. Generally this promotion runs late August through the end of September, but the Special Offers do change all the time. Check the Special Offers
A new promotion just started on April 1, and offers up to 30% discount on summer travel as long as you book by June 14, 2013.
Another great savings tip is to carry your own drinks and snacks into the parks. I always pack empty water bottles and then refill them on my own and pack goldfish, animal crackers, granola bars and fruit. This really was a HUGE savings for my family.
