How To Save Money During a Disney Vacation

The Pixie Dusted Disney Freak

Disney vacations aren’t cheap. If you are planning a trip to the most magical place on earth, don’t be surprised when you see the total cost of your trip. However, there are some ways to save some money on your Walt Disney World vacation!

Skip the park hopper tickets and just buy the regular tickets.Unless you are going on a very short Disney World vacation, I would recommend to skip the park hopper tickets. A one day park hopper ticket costs 162 dollars, while a regular one day ticket for Magic Kingdom costs 107 dollars and a regular ticket for the other three Parks costs 99 dollars.

A year ago June, I wrote a piece that went viral which not only shocked me (it is always interesting to me, what wins the post popularity contest) but even appalled my sense of vanity since a whole-lotta people saw me in my glasses. No, not cool 007 shades, but my specs with supped up special lenses, which while they bless my lil eyes with eyesight, are so thick, you can’t tell what color my eyes are!


I have been “Four Eyes” since I was six years old. It could have been my super hero moniker complete with some cool laser shooting action like Cyclone from X-Men.
