How to Travel Cheap – Save Money at Disney World

Who doesn’t love Disney World! I must confess I love and adore theme parks. But how to travel cheap when visiting one of these amusement parks? Read on!

Would you like to try some of the really nice restaurants at Epcot? Trust me, they are great. I live in the area and I visit there often. They are better than most theme park restaurants by a comfortable mile. Here’s a tip. You can check out these restaurants and not overspend your budget by eating there at lunch instead of dinner. Same food, smaller portions, smaller prices. Well worth it for sure.

Other than Epcot, your best bet for dining is MGM, which is now called Hollywood Studios. So save your money and don’t purchase hot dogs, ice cream, and other snacks in between meals (they are costly as well), and when it’s time for dinner head over to Hollywood Studios for your meal.

If you live in the state, here’s how to travel cheap and take advantage of the Florida resident discounts. I recommend purchasing an annual pass. I buy one just about every year and it pays for itself in about 4 or 5 visits, depending on which version you get. The pass with blackout dates is cheaper but I usually get the next one up because it comes with free parking and no blackout dates. You may consider the cost of the pass to be rather expensive but consider one-day tickets are now around $71.00 at last check. That’s nutty! For one thing, I never like to stay more than 3 or 4 hours, so it would be a terrible deal for me to buy a full-price 1-day ticket. So do consider the Florida resident annual pass.

Save money on rental cars too, a great idea on how to travel cheap. If you are staying at one of the Walt Disney World resorts, you probably don’t need to rent a car unless you plan to travel some distance off the property. Trust me, the property is huge, just miles and miles, and there are monorails and buses to take you wherever you need to go within the boundaries. Plenty of shopping at Downtown Disney or in the theme parks themselves, and more than enough restaurants to make anyone happy no matter what your taste in cuisine, especially at Epcot.

And lastly, this is not necessarily a tip on how to travel cheap, but if you like Fish and Chips check out Yorkshire County Fish and Chips in the United Kingdom area. Fantastic for what it is. I love it.
