Tips to save Time and Money in Walt Disney World

Parents all over the world want to make their children’s dreams come true and take them to Walt Disney World.  Planning a Walt Disney World vacation is a herculean task and can be expensive and overwhelming at the same time.  With families struggling to save enough money to take that magical Walt Disney World vacation, they are constantly asking themselves some pertinent questions.  How can I save money in Walt Disney World?  How do I navigate Walt Disney World without becoming stressed out because of the throngs of people at every turn I make?  This list will help you save time and money in the happiest place on Earth!
1) Save money on food, theme park tickets, and water! 
It can be very expensive to eat in Walt Disney World, so families have the option of investing in one of the Disney dining plans when they purchase a Walt Disney World package.  There are two dining plans that are the most cost effective for the family trying to deal with the high cost of food.  The quick service dining plan includes two counter service meals and two snack per person per night in a Walt Disney World resort.  Everyone will also receive a resort refillable mug!  The Disney Dining plan includes one table service, one counter service, and two snacks per person per night and a resort refillable mug.  These two dining plans can possibly save a family 15% on food costs.
If families plan their theme park visits correctly, then the park hopper option will not be necessary.  This will save a family about $65 per Magic Your Way ticket.  A family of four will save well over $200.
Instead of buying bottles of water in the theme parks everyone can get water for free!  Walk up to any counter service location and ask them for tap water with ice.  They will gladly give it to you.  This can be a savings of $168 for the week.  Since a bottle of water costs $3.00, and if everyone in a family of four requires two bottles of water per day, which works out to $24 per day.  After a seven day vacation that totals $168!
2) Make a dining reservation for the Fantasmic Dining Package!  
The Fantasmic Dining package will guarantee everyone a seat in the Fantasmic show in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Fantasmic is a breath taking night time experience in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Mickey takes on the evil villains that Disney has created over the years.  Instead of standing in line over an hour before the show and being herded like cattle, families have the opportunity to enjoy more of what Disney’s Hollywood Studios has to offer.  Approximately 30 minutes before Fantasmic begins, families will proceed to a special entrance and enjoy the show.
3) Take advantage of FastPass+ by staying in a Walt Disney World resort!
