Ask the Readers: How much should I save for a trip to Disney?


Today’s questions is from Michelle:

Your blog has inspired me to start saving for something that I really want to do, and feel like it’s just way too expensive: a Disney World vacation!

I have coworkers who travel there all the time, but our budget makes a vacation like that a once-in-a-lifetime trip for us. However, I have NO IDEA what my saving goal would/should be!

I live in Pennsylvania, so we would need airfare for 3 plus a hotel, park tickets, and whatever else you have to pay for when you’re there (food, a few souvenirs, etc.)

So I’m wondering what a practical budget with be for this type of trip… and I’m looking for frugal tips for taking a trip like that without breaking the bank.

Also, I have a couple years to save as my daughter is barely 2, and I think she’d need to be 3 or 4 for it to be worth it. I just really want to be able to do this for my family! -Michelle

    Is there any way the photo with this post can be updated? It seems to be missing now, meaning that Pinterest won’t let me pin the link. I’d love to refer back when I’m in the midst of Disney vacation planning. Thanks!
