Anniversary at WDW on a Budget
So our bi-annual Anniversary WDW trip is coming up in 2 weeks but unlike past years (this is our 4th visit), money is tighter - we have 3 kids so now most of the funds go to their tickets, food, you name it. Hubby's request is that we have a smaller budget for our own celebration which I don't mind really, but just a bit stumped.
What are some unique, cheap or free fun things to do for our Anniversary? And maybe a moderate place to eat? So far we have mini golf on the list, maybe ride the surrey or carriage ride around. What are some best kept secrets for a WDW Anniversary Date on a dime? :]
Oh and if you know anything that's new that would be cool. I feel every time we come back to a whole different WDW!
Born and raised in San Diego, DLR is home but love going to WDW!
