8 Ways to Travel to Disney on a Tight Budget

1. Choose a value resort
This might seem pretty self-explanatory, but I bring this point up because there is an option that is “technically” cheaper. Staying off property is the absolute cheapest way to do Walt Disney World. I prefer to stay on property, for a couple of reasons, but staying off property will save you the most money. Although hotel rates are cheaper off property, you might need to pay more for taxis or rental cars to get to the parks if your hotel doesn’t provide transportation. Some resorts also only drop off at certain places, and not all of Walt Disney World if they are not on Disney property. If you’re on a tight budget, I’d recommend staying on property at a value resort, where you’ll still be close to the magic, and have the ability to use Disney transportation for free, including the Magical Express service, that is a complimentary ride to and from the airport. Disney resort guests are also the only ones who can take advantage of extra magic hours, which means that although you’re paying the same price for a ticket, you’re getting a greater value for it.
