I love reading Disney planning books as I am a Disney planning freak! Figuring out ways to save money with my trips and LOVE learning new tips is one of my favorite things to do! 

The book is a super easy read and set up into chapters to make it easy to find good ways to save money for your trip to Disney World! The book itself is very eye-appealing, and colorful, which I find incredibly helpful since I like color in the books I’m reading! 🙂 

While I think that this book is for someone who hasn’t studied Disney World in great detail like I have, or someone who hasn’t spent a lot of time at Disney, there were a few savings tip that I didn’t know about.

The one that stuck out was this one:

If you go to a quick service eatery, you can just purchase the MAIN DISH (say, a burger) without having to buy the french fries/side dish to go with it. This will save you some money on food. 

I had never known this before, so I thought it was a good tidbit of information to have in case I go when I don’t have the dining plan! What a great idea!

My family has been studying and figuring out new ways to save money at Disney World for years since we’re not a family with an overabundance of money, so this book wasn’t really for us – but I thought it was well written and a great resource for anyone that wants to save money at Disney but doesn’t know where to start!

There are great tips on how to save money on resorts/housing, on how to save money on food/eating and on how to save money on planning your trip in full! 

You can find out more about this book on Lou’s website, and you can buy it there, or on Amazon! Check it out – maybe it’ll save you money on your next trip!
