The magic dates for booking Disney holidays that save on money and queue times | The Sun

A HOLIDAY to Disneyland is incredibly exciting but also extremely expensive.

A travel expert has revealed the best budget-friendly dates to visit a Disneyland Park to save some money after Disney World upped its prices for the first time in three years.

Travel in the low months

According to Insider, travel agent Lauren King explained that Disney offers cheaper tickets during January, early May and September.

While these reduced tickets are also available in December, guests will need to travel before the Christmas festivities kick in.

Ordering food to your hotel

On average, a family of four can expect to spend $150 (£125) a day dining out at a Disneyland park, but there are ways to eat without racking up a hefty bill.

Independent travel agent Alison Pringle revealed that holidaymakers are able to order a food shop to their accommodation free-of-charge.

She also recommends bringing drinks and snacks into the park, grabbing food on the go from "quick-service restaurants", and staying in a room with a kitchenette.

Purchase a package deal

Another travel agent, Shannon Devine, explained that by booking park tickets and a room in one go, with a Disney World Vacation package, could save a bob or two.

Over Christmas a one-room hotel for a three to five-person family for five nights costs $3,500 (£2919), these prices dip by around $1,000 (£834) outside of this period.

To save a couple of hundred dollars a night on accommodation, Alison Pringle recommends booking a value resort.
