Disney World on a budget
POSTED: 11:27 a.m. EDT, May 25, 2007

ORLANDO, Florida (AP) -- The most important part of budget travel to Disney World is advance planning. Research and book your transportation, accommodations, meal plans, character dining, and theme park tickets as far in advance as possible for maximum savings -- and to make your visit more pleasant!

Let's start with air travel to Orlando and hotel. Airfares and hotel rates are least expensive from mid-January through February and September to October. Spirit Air, JetBlue and AirTran have some of the cheapest flights, but it pays to research and compare. (You may also see a bump in demand and prices during President's Day week, when some school districts are closed.)

Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground accommodates everything from RVs to tents; rates start at $41 per night. The value resorts (Disney's Pop Century and Disney's All-Stars Movie, Music and Sports) have rooms as low as $82 a night, and the moderate resorts (Disney's Caribbean Beach, Coronado Springs, Port Orleans French Quarter and Riverside) have rooms starting at $145. (These prices are for what Disney calls its "value season," as opposed to peak season; the next value season begins August 5 for those resorts and July 29 for the campground.)
