Running Disney on a Budget – Part 2 with our Friends Brad and Maggie from Magic Bound Travel

Our guests, Maggie and Brad from Magic Bound Travel, offer their insights on doing Disneyland or Disney World on a budget. They discuss the benefits of staying on-property versus off-property, emphasizing the importance of evaluating your own preferences and budget constraints. They also highlight the hidden costs of off-property accommodations, which can significantly impact your overall budget.

Furthermore, we explore the option of renting Disney Vacation Club (DVC) points as a way to save money. This method can offer the opportunity to stay at a Deluxe Resort at a fraction of the usual cost. However, it’s crucial to understand the potential risks, as DVC rentals are usually non-refundable.

Another significant topic we delve into is the cost of an annual pass. We provide a detailed analysis on how many park days it takes to make an annual pass worthwhile. Plus, we share insider tips on how to save money on Memory Maker and discuss creative ways to extend the value of your annual pass.

Food costs at Disney can also be a budget-breaker. We share practical tips on how to save money on dining, from bringing your own food to the parks, splitting meals, to taking advantage of kid’s meals. We also reveal our favorite budget-friendly quick-service restaurant at Disney World.
