Something has been on my mind for a while but I was not sure how to tastefully ask my fellow MWers but I am dying to know: how do you find the best deals and cheapest way to be able to do Disney each year or more than once a year? I think I need more training on finding the good deals and being less picky with my resort, but it seems like a huge investment each time we book a trip and something al  More...

No way around it, Disney is expensive. There are so many hotels nearby. That's how I save. I stayed at a Value resort once, but don't see the need to do it again. Yes, staying at the Grand Floridian would be amazing, but I would never pay those prices. You can always visit it for free. I pick my splurges for the trip and scrimp elsewhere. Since I have to fly, I always check on Orbitz about making it a "package". Sometimes the hotels are super cheap that way.  - JenGwen323  2238.1 #86 11:41PM
We stay off site every other year. If we did not we could not go every year. The years we stay on site we make sure we do the free dining and go during value season. This means pulling our kids out of school, but I've come to terms with that and I'm quite alright with it. Staying in a condo saves us thousands of dollars because we eat there, and it's probably 10% to 30% of a moderate or Deluxe resort. We also drive down and we live in the midwest so it's a 24-hour total drive (each way). It cost us about $950 to drive down and back, but flights would be around $4,000 during the times we want to go. We do buy groceries and eat in our condo with just one meal in the park per day. We also opted not to do the park hopper pass, we're not big fans, as we feel you lose time as you're transported from one park to another, and it can save you quite a bit as well. - DizneyGirl  1546.0 #5 4:09PM

Maingate clarion? That's actually where I stayed last trip. I got the room for like 40-something a night. We liked our stay there (clean, comfy beds and practically down the road from Animal Kingdom) and will likely stay there again in the future. - missmimi90  2080.1 #92 11:10AM

Hello everyone! I haven't been on in a very long time, it's good to be back. I have a question I was wondering if anyone on here can help me with. My family is insisting we go to dw around Christmas, 12/27 -1/1. I have heard horrible things about going that time of year, the crowds, lines etc. Am I right, are we going to miserable waiting in lines? I'm afraid it won't be as magical. I need anyone'  More...

Hello and welcome back! During those dates you'll find the parks are at max capacity, especially Magic Kingdom. If you don't get up and to the parks bright and early you will find they will be turning guests away due to being full.ย People do go during these dates, obviously, and still have a good time. If you decide to go during these dates, pack your patience and realize you will get to see and do a lot less. For me personally, I prefer the least crowded dates. There are crowd calendars online if you Google for them, you'll find several. If I remember correctly the second week in January would be significantly less crowded. - DizneyGirl  1546.0 #5 2:09PM

I've gone this during week, but it was a few years back. If it had been my first time, I would have never gone back. Unbelievable crowds, a bunch of drunk people, unbelievable lines at the busses, and very tired and frustrated cast members.

We stayed at night at cabana bay. Mainly cuz I wanted to go in the lazy river and extra hour at Harry Potter world lol.

We just decieded to use some dvc points we were going to save for old key west (that washer and drier in the room is a big deal for us lol). I'm so excited for this trip. New stuff.
