I KNOW we have a TON of Disney experts in our audience! So many of you have helped other readers (and myself) learn ways to save when planning (and carrying out) a trip to the Walt Disney World parks.
One of my favorite sites for tips about everything Disney is www.mousesavers.com. So much great info!
While planning our trip to Disney, I found the following books to be invaluable – not just during the planning process but also during our time in the parks. (A huge thanks to Jenny for recommending most of them!)

Then I got this email with some fabulous tips from my pal kc:
There’s like NO “cheap” way of doing Disney…but there’s the Disney Meal Plan that you can work to your advantage if you’re resourceful, and you can always save $$ on a hotel. So I am booking our trip through Southwest Vacations because Shop At Home offers 6% cash back right now- so I’m getting over $150 back on our trip. I’m bundling all our extras into the vacation package so I get more cash back in the end. Also- Disney has 2 promos going on right now (for the Disney hotels) – $$ or %% of per night OR kids stay/play free. It ended up being over $100 less (for our scenario) to pay full price for the room and do the free kids tickets. At least I feel like I’m getting a TINY deal. :)
I would say that’s a HUGE deal with some SERIOUS savings!!
So let’s hear it – what are your VERY BEST tips for saving money on a Disney trip?
