Paying for Disney #HoliDazeGiftAway

Don't get your hope up. I'm not paying for your Disney trip. But my friend Natalie has some great tips and tricks to help you afford you dream Disney vacation! Strategies for Paying for Disney: How to Afford a Vacation to Disney World or Disneyland is a great tool for the first time Disney vacationer and a resource that can be used again and again. And with that said...

Disclaimer: I was given a copy of Strategies for Paying for Disney: How to Afford a Vacation to Disney World or Disneyland to review. All opinions are my own.

Strategies for Paying for Disney starts out by giving you an overview of both Disney World and Disneyland which gives you a great place to start. Then each chapter gives you tips on how to save money before and during your vacation.

My favorite part of Strategies for Paying for Disney was part III which is chapters 5-12. It details ways to save up and fund your trip. What is great about this is the tips Natalie gave could be applied to every day saving, not just a Disney trip. Tips like using email instead of paying for texts or bringing your lunch instead of eating out are great ways to help you save money and be more cost conscious every day of your life.

The only thing I could say Strategies for Paying for Disney was missing was information on Military discounts and families. I know with my family our first trip we stayed at Shades of Green which is a lovely resort on property tailored to military families and helps them buy discounted tickets.

But with that said Strategies for Paying for Disney has information that is great for every family. Natalie tells you her tips about saving while you vacation (have the photopass people use your camera) and on souvenirs (your local Disney store might be cheaper). She makes sure that you know about everything from Annual Passes to Z. 

Strategies for Paying for Disney is certainly the book to read if you dream of a Disney Vacation and aren't sure you can afford it.  Based on the research Natalie did everyone can afford a Disney trip.
