Disney On A Budget Worksheet
You’ve finally decided that now is the time to take you family on that magical Disney trip. You’ve spent days, or weeks, even months, reading about planning a Disney vacation online and how to best plan it. But how much will this trip cost? When can you afford to go on this vacation?
Travel expenses are going to vary depending on your travel style, that’s why it’s important to start making a budget sheet early on.
What is your Disney vacation really going to cost you?
When planning a Disney vacation, the mere idea of the cost can seem overwhelming…before you even know what it’s really going to cost. In fact, a lot of families don’t even start planning a Disney vacation because of what they think it is going to cost them.
I created this worksheet for two reasons.
- To help you plan your Disney vacation and keep your expenses under full control. Be fully aware and then find ways to cut down the numbers that just seem ttoo high.
- Help families guesstimate what their Disney vacation is going to cost them in order to figure out if it truly is possible.
My favorite part about clearly outlining my vacation’s cost is then going back through the budget and finding ways to save money.
The excel sheet is set up to populate and add numbers automatically.
6 Simple Tips To Save On Your Vacation Budget
Use websites like Kayak.com, TripAdvisor.com, and AirFareWatchDog.com to look for bargains. You can even set alerts for your travel period.
These are the things that catch you by surprise so make sure to research things like your resort and their parking or resort fee.
Bring Your Own Food
Save up on breakfast, snacks, and drinks by getting a few things from the grocery store.
Avoid Peak Travel Times
Peak travel times mean higher prices on everything, including food, flights, hotel stays and more.
Pack smart to avoid having to buy expensive later. Bring $1 ponchos to avoid the $12 (or more) Disney World ponchos.
For a family, driving can be exponentially less expensive than flying.
