Free Disney Parks Vacation Planning DVD (and my personal Disney tips)


Spring Break is almost here.  Anyone planning a trip to Disney?
Click the image above and order a FREE Disney Vacation planning DVD.

It will be mailed to your home, totally free.  You must click the picture above to order it.

My favorite money saving tips at Disney are:

Bring snacks and lunch!  I pack deli meat and rolls for lunch and tons of snacks.  You can even eat lunch while standing in line for a ride.  Saves you money and time.  My kids always want cotton candy at places like this.  Walmart usually has it in a cool canister for $2 that you can bring with you, and it won’t get squished.  Don’t pack the same old boring granola bars they get every day.  Head to Trader Joes and get dried apples or bananas, some carmel corn and salt water taffy.  Costco sells individual packs of trail mix which are fun too.  Beef jerky is a hit too and red vines!  Use your imagination and get different snacks.  They’ll feel more like treats.

All of the dining places that serve fountain soda will give you free cups of ice water.  It was so hot when we went.  Instead of packing 10 bottles of water, we packed two.  Then, we’d just hit up a dining place and get two free ice waters whenever we needed.  All the places are self serve, so you don’t even have to wait in line.  Just grab your ice water and tell the cashier on the way out that it’s water.  The ice is really good to munch on too, even better than when I was in labor!  You can bring in juice boxes too.  I always freeze a few juice boxes and use those to keep my deli meat cold.

We always stay at a hotel away from Disney to save on costs.  We usually chose a hotel near the Disney parking lots (we like the Toy Story lot).  Then, we walk from our hotel, right in to the parking lot, get on a shuttle and they take us right to the front of Disney.  Don’t worry, I emailed them about this and they don’t mind one bit.   The shuttles are constant too.  You never have to wait for one.  We went over Fall Break and had a bunk bed suite for $90 a night with free breakfast!  Look for hotels near Katella and Harbor on google maps.  You’ll see the Toy Story parking lot on the southwest corner and then pick a hotel around there that works for you and your family.  We’ve stayed at the Red Lion and Best Western Plus Raffles Inn & Suites that are right there.  They might not be the fanciest, but they were clean, offered free breakfast and the beds were comfy.  On a Disneyland trip, who stays in their room much anyway?

And this has nothing to do with Disney, but about a mile from Disneyland is the best ice cream place EVER!  It’s called Joe’s Italian Ice and trust me, you won’t be sorry.  If Disney closes early, just head over there for a treat.  My kids get dipped cones in tons of really yummy flavors like peanut butter or blue raspberry for just a few dollars.  The ice cream is out of this world and the Italian ice is just amazing.

Finding discounts on Disneyland tickets is near impossible, especially if you plan to go for less than three days.  I waited until Fry’s had their 4X fuel points promo going (which they have this Saturday, 1/23), and I bought all of our tickets.  I also bought a $100 gift card for food and souvenirs.   I ended up with almost 4,000 fuel points!  I used them to get $1 off per gallon of gas when I left.  Then, you can also use it at Shell gas stations along the way, so we used another $1 off in California.  Then, when I came back on empty, I filled up again with another $1 off per gallon.  Plus, I still had $1 for later.  It saved me about $20 a fill up!

Nanci left this comment for us after going in August:
The museum’s parking lot was completely full but they offered overflow parking directly across Central Ave in the parking structure. The structure serves the Uptown Phoenix’s Arts District building, 1636 N. Central Avenue, which houses the offices of the Arizona Opera Company. It was free to park there, the attendant just asked that we park on level 3 or 4 and exit to Palm (since the other exits were not open). There were even two gentleman, maybe officers, controlling the lights and stopping traffic so we could cross Central safely. I was worried there would be no parking but was pleasantly surprised to find the overflow lot.  (Thanks, Nanci!)
