The most important question to answer when planning a trip to Disney World is "how much will it cost?"
When planning a trip to Disney World, there are 4 main things you need to budget for: 1. Hotels and Resorts 2. Park Tickets 3. Food and Dining 4. Time of Year
Disney offers 3 hotel categories: 1. Value = $190 per night 2. Moderate = $280 to $300 per night 3. Deluxe = $400+ per night These are all averages that are always subject to change based on time of year.
At Disney World, every park costs the same. However, Disney uses seasonal prices which fluctuates prices. Here are the cheapest one-day tickets: 1 Day Base Ticket = $109 1 Day Park Hopper Ticket = $174
Here are the average prices for meals and snacks for adults Breakfast = $12 per person Lunch = $18 per person Dinner = $27+ per person Character Dining = $35 to $48 per person Children are about half the above prices.
The cheapest months to visit are August, September, January (after the holidays) and early-mid February. You can also expect lower crowds during these times of the year.
The most expensive (and busiest) times to visit are March, April, Spring Break, Easter, Thanksgiving, and the time between Christmas and New Years. The summer months surprisingly aren't too expensive but it is busy and HOT.
To be honest, it depends on what you want to see and what type of vacationer you are. Around 4 to 5 nights is usually enough time to visit all the parks, Disney Springs, and even have a pool day. But if you're ambitious and on a budget, you can do it in 3 days.
The beauty of Disney World is that you can go all out on a vacation with all the extras, or you can visit on a very tight budget. But regardless of how much you spend on your vacation, you're guaranteed to have an incredible time.
