The first time I planned a Walt Disney World vacation was in 2008 when my parents, along with my own family of four, decided to visit Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season. Planning this vacation was an epic event in and of itself. I ordered the free vacation planning DVD, I bought several vacation planning books, and I made list after planning list.
While I fully admit that I created spreadsheets for everything from the order we would ride various attractions to when we scheduled Advanced Dining Reservations, the bulk of my pre-vacation research revolved around the idea of finding the best deal for my family. That trip lasted seven nights and eight days, an epic getaway filled with pirates and princesses, Mickeys and Minnies.
Some families, however, find that time and budget only allow for a quick trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. While we’ve continued to visit Walt Disney World Resort at least once a year since that first trip with my children in 2008, we no longer go for an entire week. Instead, we prefer to visit multiple times in a year for a shorter duration each time, choosing to maximize the magic while stretching the budget.
For those of you who prefer shorter vacations, I’ve got amazing news. Walt Disney World Resort recently announced a new, kid-sized vacation package that translates turns small vacations into big savings at Walt Disney World Resort. This new package, unlike many savings packages typically offered, includes a 3-night, 2-day package with 2-day theme park tickets and 2 nights in a standard room at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Now those of you who, like me, enjoy a quick Disney getaway for a long weekend can cash in on some amazing savings. It’s a great way to visit the World without breaking the bank or overbooking your calendar!
