Top Tip: How to Save Money on Disney Park Tickets
Pre-buying your tickets is a must. The average cost of a 2-day base ticket purchased on site will cost you around $205!
Buying your tickets through the official site before you go can save you anywhere between $45-$75 across a 2-day period.
If you’re looking to spend more time at the parks, or get a hopper ticket so you can flow between the different ‘kingdoms’, a reputable specialist agent can save you much more.

How to Snag a Complimentary a FastPass for your Crew
Once you purchase your tickets, book a vacation package or a room at a Disney Resort, the Disney FastPass+ service is included at no extra charge.
Fastpasses let you reserve an entrance time for certain rides in the park before you even leave home!
Your best bet would be to reserve times for the popular rides and character greetings (which are always sure to be super busy!), so you can spend the rest of the time making magical memories with your gal pals.
You can book your FastPass slots 90 days out from your trip.
Where to Stay at Disney World
For a rustic themed, budget bachelorette, rent a camp site or go glamping at Fort Wilderness. The entire area is covered by luscious woodland trails, so if you’ve ever wanted to wake up and spot free-roaming deer, rabbit, ducks and armadillos, now’s your chance!
Another good budget option is Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. If you love Pixar Movies, you’ll adore this hotel! It’s retro themed and quite colorful.
Receiving the best reviews from Trip Advisor, standard rooms are ‘The Little Mermaid’ themed, and come with free wi-fi and a mini fridge.
Their family suites can sleep up to 6 guests, and although a little pricer, it could be more economical if you split the cost.
Choose from a Lion King, Cars, or Finding Nemo suite; all with kitchenettes, extra space and two bathrooms – perfect for when you’re getting ready for a night out in Disney!
Love the idea of animals outside your room? Spend a little extra by staying in the Animal Kingdom Lodge.
If you’ve ever wanted to be transported to a safari lodge with all the glowing, soft lights, animal-themed decorations and tribal trimmings, this is the stay for you.
Make sure to capture an Instagram worthy picture; giraffes often poke their head through the resort!
Or for a true Oceanside feel, try the beach/yacht clubs. At Disney’s Beach Club Resort, you can experience the casual elegance of New England; think Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.
Sample the exquisite dining, or explore the glistening pools, lagoons and spas of Stormalong Bay.
For a luxury escape, rest your head in The Grand Floridian, a Victorian style hotel where you can relax in the lobby as the live orchestra plays ragtime, jazz and popular Disney tunes.
Or head to The Contemporary for a modern taste of upscale elegance.
Here you can bask on the white-sand beach, indulge in a luxurious massage and watch the fireworks light up the sky over Cinderella Castle. Magical!
Where to Eat at Disney World
There’s something for everyone’s budget at Walt Disney; whether you pick at the local street vendors, sit down for a quick service fare or splurge on a fancy meal, Disney has it all.
Before your trip, haunt the Disney World dining website. It features full-length menus and up to date prices for all of the restaurants and cafes around Disney World.
A quick and easy way to discover where you can eat whilst sticking to budget.
Super Budget (-$)
Think churro carts, roated chestnuts and mustard loaded hot-dogs. Cheap (er), but more snack like. You’re looking at around $2-$6 for a snack from one of Disney’s street vendors.
If you really don’t want to pay Disney prices, your best bet would be to head outside the park, get some food at a local diner and then come back later.
You will definitely save money this way, and could be a good option if someone in the group has very specific dietary needs that Disney can’t cater for.
The Flame Tree Barbecue in Animal Kingdom is super reasonable when it comes to prices. Plus, they’re portions are huge! Their ribs, chicken and pulled pork sampler costs around $18.99, but it’s a shareable meal, and could easily feed two.
Head to Nomad Lounge for delicious small plate meals (their churros and chicken satays are divine!).
Try Casey’s Corner Footlong Combo; a foot long hotdog with a side of French fries will only cost you around $10.
The United Kingdom’s Fish and Chips at Epcot will set you back a measly $10.29 for a super filling meal.
Fancy sit down service? Take on the Magic Kingdom’s Crystal Palace’s bountiful buffet and dine with a beloved character.
Other Budget Options: The Plaza (Magic Kingdom), Brown Derby (Hollywood Studios), La Hacienda de San Angel (Epcot), Trader Sam’s (Polynesian) and Yak & Yeti (Animal Kingdom). Yak and Yeti’s Asian noodles are to die for!
Be Our Guest is a great option if you can spend $29-60 per meal.
For a real girl’s treat, order the peach breakfast bellinis, and ask for the souvenir castle goblet for a Beauty and the Beast themed memento.
If you have a Belle loving bride to be with you, this is an experience to treasure. Make sure to book a table at least 6 months in advance as it’s super popular with park-goers.
Other Spend Options: Sanaa (Animal Kingdom Kidani Villas), Rainforest Cafe (Disney Springs), Jiko (Animal Kingdom Lodge).
Checkout Le Ceilier in Epcot for a traditional steakhouse meal, which will cost around $57 for a Prime Rib-Eye.
Cinderella’s Royal Table is a magical moment not to be missed. An average meal costs in excess of $40 here so it’s definitely not an ‘every-meal’ event.
Cinderella’s Royal Table is high in demand for special occasions all year-round so make sure to book at least 6 months in advance to guarantee a place.
