Disneyland Cheaply?

Anyone have any hints to accomplish this? We are thinking of heading to Disneyland but we want to spend as little as possible.

  • good luck hun...try to find ticket discounts and stay in a hotel further aware that food will be pricey in the park- so eat before going in and take snacks in your purse/bag

  • I think she is looking a disneyLAND not WORLD.

    hunt down cheap tickets, dont stay at the big name hotels, pack your own lunches, bring a water bottle to fill up, dont buy souvenirs.  If you can get a cheap ticket in and not spend money IN the park that is about as good as you can do.

  • We stayed in a hotel in Santa Ana about 15 minutes south that served us breakfast and dinner on tues, wed, and thur I believe it was a Quality brand. They even served a free cocktail. It was close to the airport. El Pollo Loco has a family dinner menu that you can take back to the room and eat dinner. I also took a crok pot and cooked some BBQ chicken on low shredded it and served over hamburger buns just buying a container of cole slaw at KFC. Most rooms have a refer so you can keep some food supplies. The other big trick is to travel with instant oatmeal cuz you can use some creamer from the coffee maker and boil the water through the coffee maker to make the oatmeal a nice warm nighttime treat when they're excited about the next day. A;so buy combo tickets so you can get ito both parks and for multiple days.

  • Disney properties are expensive, if you want to save money I would look for a hotel in Orlando and drive into the parks. If you buy a 3-day pass for the parks it's cheaper than buying individual passes; just make sure that you are able to go on the days you buy them for! Disney does run specials (like stay 5 days and get a night free), if you sign up for their emailing list on their website they will send you all sorts of offers. (Still more expensive than the Orlando hotels, but Disney properties really are quite nice.)

  • Last time we went we got a really great deal that was a combo on hotel and park passes.
    When we did Orlando Disney world we got free tickets because we did some stupid time share selling presentation. It was 2 hours of boredom, but it saved us some money. I think we saw the ad in the back of the Familyfun magazine. Fletcher travel, I believe.
