One of the biggest concerns is the cost of a trip to Disney World, our quick look will surprise some and shock others!

How Much does it cost to go to Disney World?  Everyone’s idea of that magical Disney Vacation is different.  It could be a quick weekend drive across state, or an epic flight across the world for a three week vacation of a lifetime!
We thought we’d put things into perspective by keeping it really simple by offering a 3 night package idea and a 10 night package example, staying and enjoying Disney World as the main base for the entire vacation.
As the question on most people’s lips is related to cost, we’ve decided to go for the ‘Value’  package accommodation to try and keep costs at a minimum.

Our costs are based upon 2 adults and 2 kids sharing accommodation.


3 Night Stay during an off peak Weekend (September) = $1864.64

3 Nights at the ‘Value’ Disney All Star Movie Resort – Standard room has 2 double beds
4 Days of Magic Your Way Base Tickets included
Magic Your Way Plus Package Dining
Free Airport Transfer

This package gives you four full days of tickets inside the parks and 3 nights stay.  However, depending on how you are travelling, it may be hard to use much of those theme park tickets on your first and last days.

We’ve not included water parks, as we’ve assumed that with four great theme parks to cover in four days, you’d prefer to head to the resort pool for a quiet relaxing cool-down.
We’ve also pulled in the most popular (and best value) dining packages, allowing each of your party to enjoy two quick service meals and one snack for each of the 3 nights of your stay.
You can upgrade to a higher or lower cost dining plan prior to check-in, but we think that this package is probably the better option for busy park guests that are keen to keep costs down and park time at a peak!
The airport shuttle is complimentary, so if it’s not needed, there’s no problem.


10 Night Stay during an off peak Weekend (September) = $4211.86

10 Nights at the ‘Value’ Disney All Star Movie Resort – Standard room has 2 double beds
10 Days of Magic Your Way Base Tickets with Park Hopper and Water Parks included
Magic Your Way Plus Package Dining
Free Airport Transfer

A 10 day trip is perfect if you are heading to Disney World.  You will get to see and do, just about everything there is and have some spare time to revisit the odd parks as you please.
Our statement is only true if you stay firmly on Disney property, as the many wonders beyond Disney such as SeaWorld, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure etc will soon destroy even the most skilfully crafted 10 day plans.  In a nutshell, it just can’t be done!

Our advice, if you are staying on Disney property, is to make the most of it for the 10 days and enjoy the Magic to the full!
If you take out the recommended Disney Dining Plan, (essential to keep those food costs reasonable) you must take them for EVERY day of your stay on Disney property, meaning that you will still effectively be paying for the DDP pleasure if for example you headed to Universal for the day!

Other than that, a 10 day Disney Vacation sounds pretty cool to us!
We strongly advise calling your reservation, rather than booking online. It’s slower, but you may always stand a chance of stumbling upon a better offer or deal!
