8) Stay off property. -- If you must go to Disney World during a peak time of the year, you can still save money by staying off property, either in a hotel or in a rental house. Several companies rent vacation homes all year long in the cities of Davenport, Kissimmee and Champions Gate, all of which are within a short distance from the parks.
