I decided to record our family trip to Disney World and share it with you. I feel like we planned our trip very well and saved a lot. This was a very big trip for us and it was so successful!! Anyways, here are a few tips I have to share with you.
When planning a trip you want to purchase the airfare and hotel in advance to save the most money. We were originally going to go in October, but when we compared the prices it was cheaper to go in September the 2nd week to be exact. It worked for us just because our daughters aren?t in school, plus we don?t like big crowds. If you don?t like crowds as well I?d do research on the less peak times to go.
Tickets: We got the 3 day park hopper tickets (extra money) but you can go to multiple parks in one day!! Might not be for everyone, but it was really worth it for us.
Pop Century Resort (value resort)
We picked this hotel because it was affordable and I knew we weren?t going to be on our resort that much, except the first day. But maybe next time we will upgrade. I thought this hotel was very nice it is newly renovated and we really enjoyed our room and the food area, which we got a pizza the first day.

Amazon Prime Pantry
We used this for the first time and we loved it. They packaged the foods with care, meaning the bread/chips wasn?t smashed the non-cold foods weren?t mixed with cold foods. The bag was insulated for cold items which was great!
At Disney they offer stroller rentals. But for the double stroller it was $81 not including taxes if we paid in advance. We decided to browse the internet and find one for cheap. We did and it was perfect because we got to use in the airport as well as all the parks. We have a big stroller but this one was less bulky and not heavy at all. We ended up purchasing the stroller for $55 and sold it for $50 when we got back. Steal of a deal!!
I will be uploading another video with all our Disney World adventure. Stay tuned.
