I wish I could afford to go to Walt Disney World every year – heck I would go there every day if I could and never tire of it! But the reality for me (as for a lot of you, I’m sure) is that the expense of a WDW vacation is a luxury that I work hard to be able to afford every few years, and that means there’s some pretty LONNNGGGG stretches between Disney trips for me. So how do I survive until I can get my next “Disney Fix”? Read on to find out:
Disney Movie Nights: This is one of my favorite ways to keep the “Disney Magic” alive in my house – we all take turns picking a movie, and then get some snacks and activities to go along with it. Check out our ideas for Finding Nemo, Cinderella, and Up themed movie nights. This is an easy way to get everyone in your family involved in combatting the Disney withdrawal symptoms
Saving: Even if you don’t have any Disney trips planned yet, you can always start a WDW vacation fund – here’s a DIY to help you create a spot to stash all that loose change (for future use at WDW!). Or if you’re not really the crafty type, could always start an official Disney Vacation Savings Account. Check out more ways to save here – and remember – it’s never too early to start saving towards your Disney dream vacation
Reading: I like to stay on top of all that is new in the Disney “World” – so obviously I am reading Chip and Co every day without fail, and I also like to check out the Disney Parks Blog for updates, too. Beyond that, I make it a habit to purchase at least 1 new WDW guidebook every year, and to read up on changes and reviews in my free time. It’s important to me to stay abreast of the changes happening at Disney – as I want to know what to expect when I go, plus – it’s fun to read about all the ways they are making things even better for their visitors
Planning: Once you actually book your WDW vacation, there’s plenty of planning you can do. You can figure out what to pack (tips on that here!), where to eat and what places to make ADR’s for, what rides and shows you might want to see, and you can even work on a trip itinerary, too!
If you’re patiently (or impatiently!) waiting to go on your next WDW trip, hopefully you can make the wait seem a bit shorter (or at least slightly less painful!) with these tips. If you have any other tips, I would love to hear them, and would also love to know – when’s YOUR next Disney trip?
