Hey everyone. I hope your all having a magical day! I was wondering if anyone had any fun tip for saving money for a Disney trip? 

We have a change jar. And I stopped eating lunch out. Saves money and better for me! - indianamom  17.8 #180 1:52PM
Yep stopped the weekly takeaway so save £80 a month there. I also created a fun what i call "chuff" chart on Excel with countdown till we leave. it shows how well you are doing at saving and is a good visual target so you feel good about saving. The most important thing is to create a new bank account and pay money in online when you can, it stops you being tempted to spend it. set a target and if you do better then great. - cands-mouse  4.6 #475 2:05PM
Sadly enough, we stopped going to Disneyland.  Luckily we only live 30 minutes away, so we go every chance we get! But when it came time to save, we definitely cut back. We also stopped going out to eat and the movies. We had a Disney World fund, and added to every chance we got! - TangledNdisneY  324.7 #24 2:10PM
We got a big water jug and are trying to fill it up...we pay one set of tickets a month so you don't have to pay so much at one time - dxcmama  306.9 #26 2:33PM
I have a jar that counts my change. Then when it's full it holds around $150 I take it to the bank and cash it in and add it to the trip. - Schramke  545.8 #15 2:45PM
Change jar and my "Disney Fund". Kind of likens Christmas Club but for Disney. Works for me. I book in May/June for August when the rates are lower. It is hurricane season and hotter than all get out at that time of year but I don't mind... It's Disney after all. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #18 3:36PM
We kinda do the same thing dxcmama had mentioned! If you have kids that are going a good idea is to decorate a big water jug with tons of disney stickers and try and fill it with extra change, we also did a "clean up" around the house where my niece and nephews would help clean the house and put the coins they find in the jug, hope that helps!  - Evangeline  244.9 #1391 4:59PM
Thanks everybody for the great suggestions! I got a few of those big gallon and a half pickle jars I'm going to decorate and give to each person going on the trip! Thanks again every one - AJsDisneyPrincess  15.2 #196 2:42PM
My suggestion - have a garage sale, at least where I'm from I can make $400 to $600 in a weekend. Take your kids' clothing to a 2nd hand shop that gives you cash for the clothes. - DizneyGirl  891.1 #7 6:53PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  145.6 #2751 3:57PM
@@@Admin I booked with get away today and am staying at the HoJo in December.  Does MW still give the 100 credits or do I have to book with the hotel directly? - dsnylvr1975  22.8 #6652 5:02PM
