WALT DISNEY WORLD TIPS Your vacation made even more Magical!!

Estimate Your Costs

The best way to plan a Disney vacation on a budget is to know what the basics cost, and plan your negotiables and non-negotiables from there.   Flights vary widely, but figuring out a rough estimate for the remainder of your trip is  possible.   In the off-season, estimate non-Disney budget hotels at $45-$60 per night, or Disney value hotels at $100-$120 per night.   Plan on paying roughly $15 per adult for counter service meals; $10 each for kids’ meals; $25 per day for parking and approximately $90 per day for an adult five- day Base Ticket and $80 per day for children.

Schedule FastPass+ Backward

If you're staying at a Disney Resort, or a "Good Neighbor" resort that offers FastPass+ bookings at the sixty-day mark, maximize your chances of getting a FastPass+ on My DisneyExperience for Avatar Flight of Passage, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Frozen Ever After, and the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge headliners by jumping straight to the final day of your vacation and working backward.   Most guests will look for FastPass+ times starting with their first day, so you'll have less competition if you look As far ahead as possible.   Once you've locked in your times for a biggie, click "No, I'm Done" when prompted to select more and try for your next days priority.   Then go back and schedule your remaining two attractions at each park.
