12 Awesome Money-Saving Tips for a Walt Disney World Vacation

2. Make the most of your annual pass.

If you are an annual passholder, you can enjoy savings directly from Disney. For example, on most merchandise you purchase in the parks, you’ll receive a discount of 20%. During certain promotions in the parks, you can also receive discounts on dining at select restaurants. If you are an out-of-state passholder and you visit the parks every summer, if you schedule your trips creatively, you can even get two of your yearly trips for the price of one. For example, if you travel to the parks in July this year and purchase your annual passes, your tickets won’t expire until one year from the first day you used your tickets this year. So if you and your family visit the parks in June of next year, you won’t have to purchase tickets for next year’s trip.
