Cinderella Castle Disney World

Ep. 85 – Itinerary for Disney World on a Tight Budget


We start a new three part series on Disney Deciphered, planning sample itineraries for families on different sized budgets. In Part 1, we discuss what’s worth keeping and cutting for families on a tight budget at Disney World.

Does staying off site save a significant amount of money? Can you still afford some of the more premium dining experiences? What about souvenirs? We debate all these things and more in the episode.

Where do you like to save if you’re trying to do the most inexpensive Disney World vacation possible? Let us know your thoughts and ideas at disneydeciphered AT gmail DOT com!
