Planning a Disney World vacation can be overwhelming!

It’s crucial to find a good starting point when planning a Walt Disney World vacation. We’ve been trained that packages are often better than buying things a la carte. With a Disney World vacation, however, this isn’t always (actually rarely) the case.

The Disney Park Nerds like easy, but planning a Disney World vacation a la carte is much easier than you think and it takes just a couple of extra steps that might save you hundreds of dollars. And who doesn’t like extra money (to spend on your Disney World vacation)?

Step 1: Price Out the Package

Now…you have your package total. In this case, the total is $2,135.18 for the package selected.

Step 2: Price the Room and Tickets Separately

Select the number of tickets – we need to see the total price including tax!

Add the $1,072.62 to the room cost of $664.47 for a total of $1,737.09. This is a savings of $398.09 for booking the two separately. And the best news? The room and tickets will show up in your My Disney Experience account just the same as a package. You can still book advanced dining reservations and (eventually) Fastpasses in the same manner. So…an extra 5 minutes and a little price comparison can make a huge difference on your Disney World trip!
