Are you planning a Disney Vacation?

As you know we are planning a Disney Vacation.  I mentioned to you in my post that We Paid Cash For Our Disney Vacation I did some price comparing when it came to booking our trip.

Are you planning a Disney Vacation? We have tips to help you plan the BEST vacation!

Are you planning a Disney Vacation?

I priced through AAA, the Disney Website, by renting DVC points and through two Official Disney Travel Agents.  In the end the BEST price came back through Destinations in FL Travel.  I do want to say that we are affiliates with this agency however, it made NO bearing on which I would book through.

I honestly would buy through the lowest price and though Destinations in FL Travel told me they would beat any price I didn’t even have to tell them the prices because they came in lower.

Here are three posts that may help you if you are planning a Disney Vacation when it comes to strategy and ways to save!

Another great Disney World planning tip comes from our reader Brooke.

When planning for our trip to Disney last August, it occurred to me that I could possibly purchase Disney gift cards from Kroger  to pay the deposit and balance for our trip. GAS POINTS! GAS POINTS! GAS POINTS! I checked with my WONDERFUL travel agent, Angela Foutz with Destinations in Florida, and she said absolutely!

Kroger carries a few different values of Disney gift cards, when purchasing one for a trip you’ll want to get one of the loadable cards ($1500 is the max for one card, but if your balance exceeds $1500 simply load money onto a 2nd card).

We are headed back to Disney in May and I have already saved a bit on gas by purchasing a gift card for my deposit ($400= 80 cents off per gallon) and will be back soon to get one to cover the balance ($1500= $1 off per gallon X 3!!!)  As if the planning and anticipation of a trip to Disney are not enough, the $1 off that I will get on 3 future fill ups will add to the magic!

Thanks so much for this great tip and also for confirming that Destinations in FL Travel ROCKS!
