Set up a Disney fund, I find having a Disney payment plan makes me save.
Collect air miles, and getchaap flights to Orlando, this saved us a fortune on our last trip. Ok, we had to fly into Miami and hire a car but the savings were considerable and we got to pay Miami a flying visit.
There is no right age to visit, kids of all ages love Disney holidays, and take kiddies before they are 3 as children under the age of 3 enter the parks free of charge.
If like me you want to stay on site at Disney register for offers and decide which resort you want to stay on way before you book. This gives you plenty of time to study the cheapest time to visit. And also when the best offers are released as there is generally a pattern.
Look for deals to stay on site at Disney such as discounted rates and free Disney dining.

How To Save Money During Your Trip To Walt Disney World.
Be aware that if you opt for Disney table service dining the cost of tips can be considerable, so this needs to be budgeted in. However counter service meals do not incur tips and have some great options, the Caesar salad is just amazing.
Characters, breakfast is a cheaper option for character dining and you still get to see all of your favourite characters. The character dining is one of my favourite parts of Disney, however if you are on a budget breakfast is a great option.
For cheap breakfast, buy cereal bars and fruit for your room. And if staying on site use your free refillable resort mugs (Free with dining plan) for morning coffee.
Take photos on your phone to camera rather that getting a photo package. If you research photo spots before you go, you can get some incredible professional quality photos.
Save money on drinks when visiting Walt Disney World by taking a refillable water bottle! The cost of water adds up during a hot day in the parks. We took Camelbak water bottles and kept refilling them. As they are thermal they keep drinks cool for hours. I have had mine for 2 years and swear by it.
Visit Wal-Mart or shopping malls for souvenirs, snacks and soft drinks you can save so much money but taking a trip here first and stocking up on bargains.

When you’re staying on site you do not need a car, can use all the Disney transportation. Disney transport is free, fun and efficient. And is a great way to save money when visiting Walt Disney World.
