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.

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  1544.1 #5 4:09PM
Great to know! Thanks for sharing! - ariel116  107.6 #71 4:24PM
You're welcome. And if you have any specific questions please feel free to ask. I'm an open book. - DizneyGirl  1544.1 #5 4:27PM
Lol. Great question. In our younger years when our jobs were not the best we scraped and scrounged to make it happen. We have only stayed off property once and didn't like it but many do( no wrong answer here) the majority of the times we have been here we have stayed valu resort ( we are gone most of the time and only sleep or shower here) and off season. I love sept but haven't stayed in sept for a while. Crowds are lower and cost is as well. We , like dizneygirl opt not to do the park hopper as well, we just don't use it. Now if you think you may want to do more than once in a year I would check into an annual pass it saves ticket price, hotel room discount, food and merchandise. There was no such thing as the dinning plan so we took breakfast items with us to hotel and ate in the room then we took snack to parks for lunch and ate a dinner in the park and most times it was counter service now known as quick service. Now to splurge we watch for free dinning and try to book within that window. We also save change and dollars through the year and that becomes game room money for the kids, special events or souvenirs. We buy Disney gift cards from the area grocer for fuel perks and get free tanks of gas. We use the gift cards for everything disney and universal. We also have a separate checking account that we call our Christmas/vacation fund and so much every week gets transferred from our main account to it do a savings plan. Works great just 25. A week gets you 1300. We save more but that's a start. We have also bought gift cards weekly, which is good also because you can only use them in disney. Lots of great things you can do out there, even consignment. Lots of luck to you - mmddgp  1912.8 #3 5:38PM

I bought house for my parents in New York before I moved to pa.  They wa t to move to ga. So based on me selling the home (they get the money as I promised them the house as a thank you for giving up their land and home in Jamaica) so not selling the house means no money.  They will come another time once it sells.  Gods willing.  Going July 29-aug 13  - 5disneylovers  1278.3 #9 3:40PM

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  1544.1 #5 2:09PM

Thank you everyone so much for your advice. I appreciate it very very much. - sjmommy  5.1 #436 3:20PM
Don't do it. Just don't. I probably sound negative and I truly don't mean to but what happens if/when you and your kids get turned away at the gate to Magic Kingdom because it has hit capacity? I would just avoid the heartache and go literally any other time but the weeks between Christmas and New Years. - missmimi90  2079.9 #92 3:37PM

Thanks diz!! I have been on the phone all day refreshing for it to say " all circuits are busy, try your call again" get in my car to drive to my grandsons game and finally there is pixie dust and a voice that prompts answers. Now I'mOn hold at 430 till 600. A girl comes on and starts working but it was far from magical. First the rooms at AKL don't include dinning so we opt to go with tried and true pops century no free dinning left!! Ugh. She's giving me a price of 4400 for pops/ ther is no way!!! Ok get one room figured out then get to the other room and it's stuck won't put me edand two grandsons in it. Saying we need two rooms. Are you kidding me. Back and forth for hours then after 5 1/2 hour I get disconnected. ๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ช so I go on MDE and my daughters ressies is there so I go to my rewards email click on it and start selecting and within a half hour I have a ressies with tickets and free dinning. Omg what was so hard!! Now I just have to make sure I get credited the money I put down on AKL. Anyway the difference was total 3800.  I am a wreck and now I need a drink! - mmddgp  1912.8 #3 7:45PM
