hey guys sitting and chatting about my Walt Disney World budget worksheet it's a free planning tool all created for you and I'm going to take a quick moment here to walk you through it so that you have an idea on how it works if we haven't met before I'm Alma and I hope customize and create Disney vacations for guests that are crafted to each individual family group couple or solo trip based on personal needs and budget if you're interested in having your own personal Disney Vacation Planner I'd love to chat with you my services are always free a little disclaimer here before we get started one the prices are in u.s. dollars Rory my fellow Canadian friends with the fluctuating dollar it's difficult to keep the rates updated to this budget worksheet is only a helpful planning tool so that you have a realistic budget in mind and in no way an official travel quote please contact your friendly Disney travel planner for an official quote if you have any questions please don't hesitate contact me I have included my contact information in the video notes below now let's get started on this main page you'll see a breakdown of all of the costs at the bottom you can see the different sections which you can click through budget which is the page that were on resorts porches a list of resort choices daily rate which shows you the daily rate for each Resort Hotel you can see the dates this about down the side and the hotels is that all along the top dining which shows you the daily rate for dining tickets and that shows you the average daily rate for per ticket choice and you see that the ticket price goes down the longer your stay and then we have parking which gives you the daily hotel rate for parking if you choose to drive or rent a car okay so let's go back to the main page and I'll show you how to fill the worksheet up I usually start by entering the total budget amount that you would like to work with and then we can pop down and start entering in your expenses your expenses start here on line 14 in the sample budget I based it on to adults for a seven-night stay so in line 14 you can see here it's a drop-down menu and you can choose your resort of choice here I put these guys at Disney pop century resort now let's figure out your average price per night so if you click over to the daily rate tab and choose your dates let's say you want to travel me first checking out May 8 and staying at pop century show us the resorts along the top here pop century is my first column so I go down to May first and then you can actually just highlight from May 1st to May 7th because it's her night stay and you'll see at the bottom here it gives us an average daily rate it shows the number of nights and then we can pop back over to our budget worksheet and enter in our sending lights and the cost per night was 1 1 571 and then it's going to give us our total amount here next we enter in our resort tax there's only any one resort tax and over here you'll see my note it says 13.5% at all star resorts otherwise it's 12.5% so the tax on Disney sports entry it's roughly 5% which gave us one point four eight seven next we're moving on to park tickets and this is also a drop down menu so you can select what type of cook tickets you want these ones are going to be set to one park per day then you go over to your ticket tab and you're gonna have to do a little bit of math here for this one we are doing one park per day for seven days and you'll see that the 7-day price is sixty two dollars and you multiply that by two people which gives us one hundred twenty four dollars and we hop back over to our budget and we go here and we're doing seven days 124 dollars and it gives us our total amount moving along and we do a similar thing for the Dining Plan there's a jump down menu can choose which dining plan you want and we pop over to the dining table and figure out how much it's gonna cost for dining so a little bit of math here as well and we have our sample here says a Disney quick-service Dining Plan which is fifty to fifty per adult per day so when you multiply that by two and it's giving us 105 dollars per day we just pop it in our seven days hundred five dollars and it'll give us our total amount and then you will see some other options under the expenses tab the memory maker this one is 169 if you buy it before your trip it is 199 park then you have your options for travel if you're flying driving parking car rentals so this is your whole transportation section we fill in the information just as we did above and then you have additional lines to put in your budget for your souvenirs and gifts for your purchase food and drinks there's also a column for special event tickets like Mickey's not-so-scary Halloween party Mickey's very Merry Christmas party early hours events or VIP tours so you can pop that all in there and that's it well there you have it I hope you find this budget worksheet helpful if you think that something else should be included please comment your request below thank you for taking the time to watch this tutorial and have a magical

hey there guys what is up and welcome back to my channel in today's video I wanted to do something kind of fun I think it's fun and help you guys out at the same time now I discovered something lately that to me personally is nothing short of Awesome and I actually discovered this on a Facebook group that I'm in for Disney people and that is a way to get free Disney gift cards I mean technically you can get like any diff any gift card with this but we're working today on free at Disney gift cards so if you know me you know I love going to the parks and you know that I like going to the parks as cheap as possible and this is one way where you can go and if you do it enough you can probably go for free but we're gonna work for some free Disney good cards today and that is by using the app called shopkick now before you get into this I just want to say this video is not sponsored or whatsoever they don't know who I am they don't know that enjoying this this literally just something I found the other day and I thought it was the most amazing thing on the planet so I wanted to share it with you guys my husband's sitting outside the car being crazy right now but we're at Walmart on 4th of July so it's gonna be really really busy here and it looks like it's about to pour down raining outside so before we get into this I just want to show you how to use the app first of all you want to open up the app and whatever you open it it looks like this and as you see I already have 840 kicks which is what they call their points on this app now basically what you do is whenever you walk into the store literally just for walking in the store you get kicks for it and then while you're walking around doing university shopping or whatever you scan items in the store you don't have to buy them you don't do that you literally just scan some items in the store and it will give you points for kicks as they like to call it so one thing about this app is what you want to remember whenever you go into a store in order to get points for walking in you have to make sure you go to one with this little man right next to it and this little barcode is how many points you can get for scanning things and then this little receipt next to it is how many points you can get if you buy the thing so since we're at Walmart what I'm gonna do is in order to get the kicks when you walk in you have to have your Bluetooth turned on because they do have sensor so I'm going to open up the Walmart part and I am going to turn on my bluetooth and then whenever we walk into the store I will get 10 kicks automatically just for walking into the store now what we're going to do is we're going to go through the store and this is literally like a little scavenger hunt like we did this before and we got over 800 kicks in just one shopping trip and we literally did not even buy anything if you use some of the stuff on your toll you buy a scan your receipt and you'll get even more points for that but you don't even have to yeah so when you go and you're just gonna find the different items and you're literally going to click on the item and you're going to scan it in as soon as you scan it you will get the points now some of these at the end it'll have like a little ad that'll play but it'll give you extra points and so what we're gonna do is we're gonna go walk in to this Walmart right here it's very very busy Walmart fourth of July and we are going to show you guys just how much you can get in one shopping trip using this app and I should mention that a $25 gift card on this app is like 6,000 something points and we got almost 900 in one trip and this was just a couple days ago so if you buy this stuff it adds up a lot more a lot quicker but you really don't have to and you still get a good amount of point okay so on this app we're in the shampoo mile you have this small professionals green so you're literally just going to cap it you're gonna grab one off the shelf it doesn't matter which one is you just have to make sure it matches it you're gonna scan the barcode what we're gonna do is we're gonna walk around we're gonna scan everything we can scan and it will let you know how many points we got in this one shopping trip okay guys so we talked about how to get the points on the shop cake app for free but you can get points a little bit faster by actually buying this stuff that it has on the app so we ended up meeting some so my husband use themself anyway and the one thing he buys is actually on here so we went ahead and just picked one up so I'm gonna show you guys how to get the points for actually buying stuff so when you buy the stuff okay you go to the item you bought and it'll say submit receipt and you're going to take your receipt and I haven't actually done one of these yet so we're gonna do this for the first time together and you're just gonna click the one you bought if you bought more you can hit more but up we're gonna get it to 200 points for this one which is really good so you just want to scan your receipt and it's telling me how to scan it and it's gonna look like this like you're gonna have like a camera on there and you're gonna set your receipt up to take a picture and scan it so I'm gonna go ahead and do that really quick so after you upload your receipt it's gonna say processing just like mine is and then um I don't actually know how long it takes but when it uploads you'll have extra points and you do get more points for buying stuff than you do for just getting stuff for free but either way you still get a pretty decent amount of points for scanning stuff at the store for free so as I was mentioning before I am doing this for free Disney gift cards there are other gift cards on there that you can get there's like a whole list of them there's Aeropostale American Eagle Walmart Target uh Yankee Candle Cheesecake Factory Nike like there is so many ones on here that you can get like it's ridiculous personally I'm going to keep going for the Disney wins because I take a lot of trips to Disney and often always having extra Disney money is nice plus you can pay for almost everything activity and with the Disney gift cards annual passes the tickets included and food and resorts are included as well and also another way to earn points on this app is to use their referral program shopkick does have a referral program where you refer friends and your friends get bonus points and you get bonus points on top of that first ring people I will actually leave my referral link in the description below if you want to download the shopkick act for yourself and give it a try it is honestly so so cool I think and it seems really really easy to do and it's a really good free easy way to get some extra money for your Disney trip thank you guys that is all that I have for you this video I do hope you liked it if you have some other ways to get free to gift cards please leave your suggestions in the comments below or if you know something else or another way that you've seen people do and you're too scared to try and let me know and maybe I can try it for you and let you know how it goes if you like videos like this one please give this a big thumbs up and don't forget to hit that red subscribe button right down below and I will see you guys next time bye you

hi everyone thanks for joining me again or adventures with Amira today we're going to be talking about how to save money at Walt Disney World because it's so expensive especially if you have a larger family and I just want to give you some tips and tricks that I've found out over the many years that we've been going number one parking parking can be almost $20.00 a day if you're going to be eating at the park anyway what I would recommend is to make a breakfast reservation at one of the hotels that's near the park where you're going to be for instance if you're going to be going to Magic Kingdom for the day you can make a reservation at either Fort Wilderness Grand Floridian the Contemporary Resort or the Polynesian now if you make a breakfast reservation at one of those resorts they're going to scan you in because they'll see your reservation when you go to go through the interest of the hotel and you can park your car there and you can leave your car there all day and you don't have to pay to park we do that normally even though we're pass holders and we don't pay to park anyway we normally always go eat breakfast at one of the resorts leave our car there it's so much less confusion than coming out of the giant parking lots and then we just catch the monorail directly into Magic Kingdom if you're going to be going over to Epcot you could eat at any of the restaurants right there on the boardwalk there's bakeries and whatnot where you could eat at Cape May Cafe which is the buffet over the yacht and Beach Club there's also captain's grill that serves breakfast over at the Yacht Club so if you want to eat at one of those resorts you can leave your car there and then walk into the back gate of EPCOT or take the boat in to Epcot or take the boat into Hollywood studios or walk into Hollywood studios or you can just catch the bus over to Magic Kingdom or wherever you want to be for the day so that's like the number one tip that I have for you number two I'll press pennies as souvenirs they're 51 cent it's two quarters and you bring the penny to press and it's a cute idea for you and your kids and it helps save money we have so much fun collecting pennies you can buy a penny book online before you ever get to the park just buy one off eBay it'll probably be way cheaper than buying one in the park but we do that every time we go to the phone number three five kids meals on quick service plans for your meal if you're like me I don't eat that much during the day anyway especially if it's going to be hot I'm more of you know drinking water and things like that so I'm not going to eat a huge huge meal in the midst of writing lots of theme park rides so what I do is at quick service restaurants you're able to just go up to the counter and buy whatever meals you want normally our family we go get a table and my husband goes in orders for us they don't know how many kids you have with you anyway and they probably could care less so I always order a kid's meal for myself Oh speaking of rain I'm gonna get to that soon back to number three if you order a kid's meal you normally get something like an hamburger a wrap like a chicken wrap hotdogs they have different things then they have a side item like french fries or fruit and then they also have a drink and then they also have a dessert so you actually get a pretty decent amount of food a lot of times we have food left over like a little bag of grapes or a bag of carrots from our kids meals and we bring those with us to have throughout the rest of it number four pack your own snacks in your luggage before you even fly and we used to do that all the time because we were on a tight budget we're military family we've been going to do Sea World since before we had kids we were both college students and going to Disney World on a shoestring budget literally so I learned to do this a long time ago and when we started flying in all the time when we lived in Colorado I would just bring snacks that I knew that we would like that wouldn't melt on the plane granola bars candy for my husband cuz candy Disneyworld is so expensive why not just bring jellybeans or something with you I mean we have some money to buy a few snacks here and there but it's definitely helpful to just bring snacks with you that you know that you can use number five bring your own water into the park that is a big deal because bottled water at Disney I believe is two ninety-five a bottle and now what we do when we go for the day we put a bunch of all of water in the freezer we bring a little cooler with us in the car as we take them into the park they're already frozen you don't have to have them in a bag or anything normally they're pretty much thawing out as you're walking through the park and you always have cold water on you we give one to each of the family members and that helps us and we have water in the car on the way there with water in the car on the way back and then we have that one bottle that we didn't spend money on in the park and I mean that right there save just twelve dollars just by bringing one bottle each into the park because it's going to be hot and you're going to want to stay hydrated because Florida heat and humidity especially if you're not used to it can be a little bit much also if you want to bring water from home and you're not in a car I used to ship water in my luggage literally if I had room knew I was going to be buying merchandise and stuff anyway so I would just pack like a case of water as long as you're not going to be over your weight limit also have the option of a grocery delivery service Orlando has several grocery delivery services and you can look those up online if I find one I'll link it below but you can actually have any kind of food items delivered to your hotel room so your stuff will be stocked when you get there and it's going to be a lot cheaper than buying food inside the park they'll be waiting for you normally when you get there and check-in you can also mail yourself a package I've done that many times especially when we were traveling with babies I would mail my diapers ahead of time I would mail my formula ahead of time and it just made my life so much easier number six buy clothing and costumes ahead of time now we have done that since I've been taking my kids with my little boy we never really dressed him in costumes or anything to go to Disney but with the princess we always had princess gowns and whatnot and we would buy them online from ebay or somewhere like that and have the whole getup I mean a lot of people would think that she's already been to the bippity Boppity boutique because I did her hair glitter in her hair and her nails and everything myself so we look just like she'd been to the bippity Boppity boutique as if it was the mommy boutique so I would just do all that in the hotel room and then take her out for the day looks so cute and it just saves you so much money and as far as clothes for us if you don't have kids I'm only I wait till Disney has their 25% all sale on Disney Store on and I'll buy up clothes and things like that that I know that we're going to want to wear in the park or if you see things at Target or Walmart or whatnot little Disney shirts or like the new finding Dory movies coming out if you see stuff like that ahead of time corn about and then you're not tempted to buy it once you're in the world number seven try pin trading if you buy pens online like on eBay or somewhere like that you can get bulk pins and then trade them with other cast members or people that work in Disney parks once you get there and get those pens as your souvenirs and it's really economical to do that because you can find both pin Lots I mean all over the place once I went to Goodwill and found a huge bag of Disney pins I couldn't even believe it I mean what's the chance of that there was like 30 something pins in a bag and I think I paid $2 for it take those into the park then that'll be an inexpensive way to get some souvenirs and have something fun for the kids to do we started pen trading with our kids when my daughter was probably two and she was just old enough to wear a little lanyard I ordered the lanyard online ahead of time way cheaper than I could get in the parks and then I got some pins from a Disney outlet we had gone to and then I bought some online and took them with us and they just have so much fun number eight plan all of your meals online especially if you're coming in for like a week to ten days my friends from Europe they're always coming in for long amounts of time and it is so much more economical if you kind of plan out what restaurants you want to go to if you're staying on property you can actually book out six months ahead of time if you plan all your meals ahead of time you can really look at the dining plan now if you're staying off property it still helps because you can see what meals are going to be available as a quick surface option we also call counter service but you go to the counter get your food and go sit down at a table quick service meals are of course going to be the ones where you can get a kid's meal for yourself versus an adult's meal if you go to table service meals then you have if you're an adult like my son now is 11 even though he doesn't eat that much he still has to purchase an adult meal or an adult buffet versus the kid's buffet so you need to keep that in mind if you have smaller children it probably will be more economical because the kid's meal plans are so much less expensive I think an adult meal plan right now is about sixty-five dollars a day they're dining service plan that comes with one quick service one table service and one snack versus a kid's plan for the same thing is about twenty-something dollars and the kids don't eat that much food so when my daughter was between two to four we still had to buy a meal plan for her but she wouldn't need that much food she would eat some of our food then we would have all those credits left over at the end so if you know you're going to be doing table service meals you probably will come out ahead on the dining plan there's nothing worse than being in there you're starved to death you're roaming around you grab a $12 turkey leg and this person wants ice cream and it's just crazy if you don't have a plan in place so definitely plan ahead for your meals if you want to save money that way number nine ladies need help you take care of your celebration and what I mean by that is they offer free pens when you go inside the parks so one of the things they do is they give you birthday button pins that you pin to your clothes they also have one for I'm celebrating they have one for first visit they have one for anniversaries honeymoon I believe just married engaged and if you wear these pins sometimes you get a little touch of Disney magic sometimes one of the employees will give you a free popcorn or a free drink when you go to get something it's only happen to me a handful of times but still hey that's free merchandise and also if you're at a table service you let them know when you make your reservation that you're celebrating a birthday or anniversary or what not and then at the end of your meal they normally bring you something free a free dessert we got a beautiful beautiful anniversary dessert when we were at the Grand Floridian and it was just phenomenal it tasted great it was gorgeous to look at and it was completely free a dessert like that out somewhere would probably be at least $15 for every birthday that we've celebrated there they bring cupcakes ice cream and Upton's grill and have these little ice cream sundaes on a tray that comes with ice cream and cookies and candies it's completely free when it's your birthday or something like that so that's a good way to celebrate and save money if you're staying on property you can actually let them know when you're there that this is a celebration for whatever event and they normally will bring a little card to your room I've knew we've never been in the room when they've come but I've been told that sometimes they'll send a character to knock on your door they also do a little character phone call where they'll call your room and it's Mickey Mouse or goofy or something saying how you doing pal and happy birthday and whatnot which is so cute but they'll give you pins when you check in if you tell them what you're celebrating and they'll sometimes send a little card that has all of the different autographs on it and sometimes they'll also give you a picture in your room so you get a birthday card a picture and once or twice we've actually gotten a balloon so you never know what you're going to get but the more people that you let know you're celebrating something the better chances you are getting that little special touch of Disney magic number 10 it's raining right now it always rains in Florida random times it might be a storm that passes over or it might be like the last time we went to Disney for my husband's birthday and it rained the entire day the entire night and the entire next day and we didn't bring our own ponchos why I have no idea please bring rain ponchos if you want to save money because the rain ponchos in Disney are about ten dollars apiece we actually bought rain ponchos and an umbrella I think my umbrella we were down in Downtown Disney that night we were staying on property but we were down there and I mean it was like a torrential downpour we still had to get back to the busses and it was freezing cold like a freak cold snap in Florida and I had to buy an umbrella and the Poncho's and that umbrella was about $40 it was just such a waste of money but you know with desperate times call for desperate measures so don't make the mistake I did bring your Poncho's with you the weather every day if it looks like there could be a little bit of a rainstorm just bring it with you throw it in one of the Disney shopping bags from the store if you don't have one go by a store and say hey can I have a bag and just carry your Poncho's in with you it's better to have them than not to okay I hope this helped you guys I have tons of other tips about how to save money at Disney

hey guys welcome back to my channel today I'm gonna be sharing my top money-saving tips for your Disney vacation so these things range from just saving a few dollars here and there to saving hundreds of dollars on some pretty substantial things so let's get started okay my first tip is to purchase your park tickets from an authorized ticket vendor website so one that I recommend is undercover tourists calm I'll link their website below but you can actually save a pretty significant amount on this website so right now on the website and this may change but right now they have a four-day base ticket listed to save forty-two dollars from what Disney is selling it for and a four-day park hopper right now is listed at a savings of seventy three dollars so that's a lot of money if you're buying multiple four-day base tickets or multiple four-day park hopper tickets that's a lot of money okay my next tip is to stay off site so I know that Disney resorts have a lot of draw to them there's a lot of perks to staying there but if you are on a tight budget stay off site there are a ton of amazing hotels in the Disney Springs area that you can get a great deal on another option is to look into Airbnb or VRBO you can rent a little condos or you can even rent rooms in somebody's house and they're pretty affordable okay another way to save which may seem contradictory to my previous point but is to stay on site so there's pros and cons to both there's ways you can save at both but one would be if you are gonna stay on site there's a ton of perks you're saving on transportation the convenience of all of the food and the entertainment and just the proximity to the parks but outside of those things if you stay at a value resort if especially if you go offseason there are some pretty great deals that you can get for a value resort and then if you want to stay at a more luxury resort then we look into renting DBC points I've done a couple videos on this so I'll link it in the cards above but you can save up to 50% on deluxe resorts I mean hundreds of dollars of savings and it's pretty great so my next tip is to bring your own food I think a lot of times we get swept up in the you know Disney Dining Plan or making reservations and you have to check out all these amazing restaurants and they're they are amazing but again if you're on a tight budget there's really no need to spend you know 60 plus dollars per person at a restaurant when you can just pack a lunch so there's a ton of different grocery service delivery companies that will actually deliver your food to your room in advance I know one of those is Amazon there's there's a ton of websites that do this so definitely look into it but that's one way to save a ton of money another way is to eat breakfast in your room before you go to the park my husband and I do this all the time we're just not big breakfast people so I'm good to grab a piece of fruit a granola bar a bagel whatever and head towards the park so to me I'm just I'm not really into breakfast so that's a way that we save money another way is again like I mentioned before packing your own lunch packed sandwiches pack you know all your snacks dinner I mean everything you can bring it into the park with you so a lot of people think that you can't do that but you totally can and it's a great way to save money okay my next tip is to enjoy a non-park day and this is a great way to save money and there's a ton of stuff to do on Disney property you can check out Disney Springs which is I mean a full day right there with all of the stuff that they've added in the past year there's a ton to do there I mean it could take up your whole day you could Resort hop there's so much to see at Disney resorts again you couldn't even do it in one day because there are so many resorts to see and there's so many free activities to go to so Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my favorites to go and enjoy looking at the animals on a Savannah you can do little restaurant tours and there's baking classes and I mean there's just so much to do and that's just it Animal Kingdom Lodge so again there's so many things to do with the resorts and it's definitely a great way to save money okay my next tip is to purchase your souvenirs before you get to Disney it's super tempting to walk around the gift shop and load up a basket of stuff and before you know it you're spending hundreds of dollars in mugs and magnets and clothing and toys and all kinds of stuff and I've been there trust me but there's so many amazing Disney products and stuff outside of Disney parks so Target just released a super cute Disney line there's a ton of stuff you can find on Amazon especially if you have kids and they're the ones that go around in the gift shop and are just pulling stuff off the shelf and you know asking mom I want this I need this I need this then just bring it to the park before you get to Disney so another tip to kind of tag off of this one with pre purchasing souvenirs is to buy your Poncho's before you get to Disney most likely it will rain on your vacation so don't spend the ten fifteen dollars on Poncho's when you get to the park if you are a family of four or five or more I mean that's a lot of money you're spending on ponchos and if it rains everyday and you're not hanging on to the Poncho's that is a lot of money you're spending so what I've done in the past is I've gone to Dollar Tree and I've bought like the little packs that come in a pack of 10 for five dollars or ten dollars or something and we're set for the week and I spent the same amount of money I would have spent on one poncho that I did for a whole week for two people so definitely purchase everything you need before you get to Disney because they rack those prices up more than you even know my next tip is to skip the memory maker it's super cute I know what to have little Tinkerbell sitting in your hand you know when they edit the pictures and add that in but a lot of people just kind of pass over these photographers because they have the memory maker but make sure you stop and ask them to take your picture and you don't have to have the memory maker for this they will take a picture of your family with your phone or your camera and you still get to take advantage of all those really popular spots that they stand but you don't have to purchase the memory maker so that's a huge way to save money and you still get to experience all the same pictures so my next tip is to book your trip during offseason so offseason includes some of those months before Thanksgiving hits so September early October after New Year's kind of timeframe so middle to end of January in February those are great months to go because it's more affordable so they bump the prices down for resorts tickets are a little less expensive it's just a little way that you can save money another way you can do this is to take advantage of deals that are going on so in the fall they have a promotion for free dining in the spring they do room discounts if you booked during a certain time frame so just look into all the discounts and deals that are going on and if you booked your certain trip and a discount pops up you can definitely call Disney and go back and have them add-on that discount so again it kind of it depends when you're booking and what the discount is so definitely call before you get too excited but there's so many discounts going on with Disney they're always offering some kind of promotion so just look into it before you book your trip okay my last tip is to skip the park hopper this is a way that my husband and I have saved so much money every trip we just decide that we're just gonna pick one park for the day and we don't even think twice about it when we're there we don't think in the middle of our day oh man I wish we had the park hopper you know when we're saving that much money so for example a family of four purchasing a four-day base ticket as compared to a four day park hopper ticket is a $300 difference that's a lot of money you're saving so definitely skip the park hopper if you are wanting to save money and you're doing Disney on a budget just do the base rate tickets they're great okay that is it for my Disney World money saving tips I hope you enjoyed I
