#DisneyOnaBudget βœ… So here goes: we are coming on our next trip on a huge budget. I've managed to squeeze in the 4th of July weekend with the family and sending hubby home on Sunday for work and staying til Thursday with a good friend. I booked the hotel and ready for this week. But being super frugal and super cheap just to really be in the area and smelling Disney air. I want to know if you ha  More...
I've got a few... 1) Our Target usually has the Smart Water bottles they sell in the parks for $1. I buy at least 3 for each day we will be there and freeze them. That way they stay cold all day. I carry one and put the others in the backpack. 2) The picnic area lockers! These lockers are bigger than the ones inside the parks and the esplanade and you don't have to take the stuff through bag check. You could fit a small ice chest in one of the large lockers and keep cool items. We once mixed up some tuna and kept that, bread (well, we forgot the bread which resulted in some creativity lol), snacks like Cheezits, etc. Then you can keep all your meals in there and the patio is usually pretty empty. PLUS you're still on property!!! 3) I got this one from MW. If you have a Target Red Card, purchase Disney gift cards with it when you can. You'll get 5% off (plus whatever you get on your AP) 4) I have several apps on my phone that I use to build up rewards. I then redeem those rewards for Starbucks gift cards that can be used in all the park locations. We've gotten a whole meal for free with this! The sandwiches they have at the DCA location are yummy! Here are my regular apps: Viggle (check in on tv), Shopkick (scan items on your phone when shopping), Mom uses Mango Health (check in when you take your daily medications, including vitamins!). I'm sure there's plenty more, but they're SUPER easy!!!Β  - SPandEvLover  2616.9 #36 3:28PM

Definitely utilize Costco. People have this impression that I have all this $$ to come to Disneyland everyday and that couldn't be further from the truth. I SAVE money by being here. I bring my own drinks & snacks like Triscuits, trail mix, apples and other tough fruits that can withstand the backpack; also Cliff & other snack bars. It saves a ton of money & energy.  - apesandmonkeys  6238.6 #8 1:37PM

Great tips thanks for posting this!  I think everything I was going to say was covered. Oh maybe one thing along with using Costco. If you're going to eat at restaurants then get the discounted gift cards to the restaurant of your choice there. They have $100 gift cards for $74.95. - AriellesMom  24.6 #5599 10:23AM
GREAT tip, thank you! We have our trip next week and I was thinking about doing the Target thing, but this is a WAY better deal. We'll be going to Costco this week! - disneymomma87  203.6 #1801 11:15AM
Frozen water bottles, jerkey, pop tarts and Pringles are always in our backpack. If we really are trying to save money, we walk to McDonald's for lunch. - FoolishMortal138  315.5 #713 11:20AM

For those of you without annual passes like myself, ARES travel is offering two great specials.  Adults pay the kid's price for 3-day, 4-day or 5-day Hopper Tickets.  Or, they also have 3-day or 4-day Hopper Tickets with One Extra Day free.  I'm always looking for ways to save so I have more money to play : )  Thought I would share the information.  Have a great day!!
Have you ever bought from them before? Worried about it being a scam...😁 but if it's real I will DEF be buying my tickets for our upcoming trip from them! Thanks for the info! - WirTANenAtDisney  65.2 #3883 12:04PM
We've bought from Ares before, they're legit - GoofyMom77  468.6 #381 12:16PM
AWESOME! Thanks to both of you for the info, buying our 5 day hopper passes for the entire family now! Thanks!!!  - WirTANenAtDisney  65.2 #3883 12:28PM
Yes, I just bought tickets in April for my son to use to get a free day with a 3-day hopper ticket when he went with my sister.  It is a legitimate travel agency. - disneyfanaticohyeah  10.8 #8448 12:59PM
We have bought twice from there and my dad uses them quite a bit as a supplier for his travel business. They are easy to use although their site can be slightly tricky to navigate. Also they charge a very small fee like Ticketmaster. We always check AREStravel first. - ChurroChomper  147.8 #2554 9:05PM
Thanks for the info - DumboLov  14.6 #7198 12:33PM
Orbitz also has the buy a 3 day hopper and get the 4th day free. We purchased through orbitz for our trip back in February and everything worked out well. Going to purchase again for our next trip in July. - Nikkia2020  7.1 #11239 8:51PM

I asked this on the WDW side, but thought I should ask here, too, since a good number of you have been to WDW. The plan is to rent DVC points for our upcoming trip in Nov 2014(the week after Thanksgiving). Family of four, kids age 6 and 13. What resort villa would you stay at for 9 nights and why. I've got my eye on the studio villas at Beach Club and Bay Lake, but open to suggestions.
If you don't mind me asking what kind of budget are you working with? Are you going super nice hotels or looking at the moderate ones? - lostgirl7988  692.4 #218 11:24AM
I'm on a moderate budget, for the cost of a moderate hotel I can rent points and stay at a deluxe villa hotel studio (some 1 bedrooms). - GoofyMom77  468.6 #381 11:28AM
I see. We'll if you go bay lake towers see if you can go all out and get a room facing the magic kingdom. They pipe in fireworks music at night and I've heard it's amazing. As far as moderate I really love port Orleans French quarter and Coronado springs. Coronado is a little more business-y but the quick service restaurant in there is phenomenal. Caribbean Beach is pretty gorgeous as well.  - lostgirl7988  692.4 #218 11:31AM
I should have been more clear. Which Deluxe Villa Resort Studio or 1 Bedroom would you stay at and why? The cost (via renting points) is the same as booking a moderate Disney hotel. - GoofyMom77  468.6 #381 12:27PM
Do you still get magic morning when you rent points? - minnielove83  25.9 #5468 7:43AM
I would assume so you're still on property and can get meal plans through your rental.  - Pixarprincess  539.3 #311 8:32AM
Yes and you still get the free parking. - georgieporgie  180.2 #2090 10:27AM
Yup :) The only thing I wouldn't get is the free dining if it's offered, since I'm not booking through Disney - GoofyMom77  468.6 #381 8:05PM
We stayed at the old key west villas with our DVC. It's a nice hotel, but I do recommend staying at a hotel that is connected to the monorail. We had to wait for the busses and most many times by the time it got to our resort the busses were full. We actually waited 45 min just to get a bus ride to the parks. That was pretty disappointing.  - MrsMinnie  38.0 #4681 10:34PM
