It goes without saying that a trip to Walt Disney World costs a pretty penny, no matter what size family you have! Between the on-site hotel, park hopper passes, endless restaurants, and, of course, souvenirs, it’s definitely not the cheapest vacation ever. However, there are ways to save some money so that you can still enjoy all that Disney has to offer without breaking the bank. One of the easiest ways to do that is to head to Disney World when it’s the cheapest – aka, the off seasons.
There’s no real “quiet” time at Disney World, but if you want to avoid the insane crowds (and equally insane prices), January to early February is your best bet. Think about this – the holidays are a popular time for Disney visitors, so they will clear out once you get into January (just try to avoid any Disney marathons and runs, which typically take place in the first two weeks of January).
Once you get into mid-February, the prices will go up again since there are more opportunities for families to head to Disney, such as the long President’s Day weekend, Spring break, and Memorial Day Weekend. And then the warm weather hits and kids are out of school for the summer, which is prime vacation time and bound to bring higher prices. Remember, the busier the parks, the higher prices will be.
