Staying at Walt Disney World can seem like it will cost you a small fortune. With the suites at the very best hotels costing well over $2,000 a night, it is easy to get stuck with sticker shock when you are planning your trip to Walt Disney World.
The truth of the matter is that it is entirely possible to make your stay at Walt Disney World quite affordable. The trick is to know where to look for cheap lodging.
It is entirely possible to save a lot of money by staying outside of the parks—you can still find hotel rooms for as cheap as $50 a night in the Buena Vista area. The trouble is that cheap does not necessarily mean good value—consider the fact that parking fees are waived for Disney hotel guests, and there’s also the value of Extra Magic Hours to consider. That is, those who stay on Walt Disney World property are allowed to stay in the parks longer than those who don’t.
If you’re looking for cheap lodgings inside of Walt Disney World, be sure to remember Fort Wilderness. Fort Wilderness is the camping option at the parks—and there are nightly free entertainment sessions where Chip n’ Dale lead campfire sing alongs!
There are ways to make your Disney vacation affordable and fun without breaking the bank—just remember to look outside of the box! (Or in this case, look outside of the hotel room and look toward a tent!)
