Every planning tips post I write about saving money on a Disney vacation includes setting a budget. I set a budget for any trip I take whether it is for one day or two weeks. Knowing and accounting for any expense that might come up is important. This would be your first step in planning a Disney World Vacation. This will let you know how much a Disney vacation will cost, so you can estimate how much time it will take you to save the money. My Walt Disney World Budget printable is available for free.

If you purchase a vacation package, you have the advantage of covering most of your major budget items in one price. Contact A2M Travel, an authorized Disney Vacation planner, to help you find a vacation package that fits within your budget.
I added WDW Guide books to the budget because if you are a new Disney vacationer, I suggest the PassPorter’s Walt Disney World Book. It is loaded with information about dining and resorts that is hard to find all in one place while browsing Disney World focused blogs.
As you uncover costs and ways to save come back to your budget and update it. This budget page is a work in progress. Make sure to use a pencil to fill it out. Also remember to keep the maximum amount an amount that actually works with your income. While I would love to stay at the Grand Floridian, my maximum I can afford is much lower.
