Final Day to Save $30 On Disney Tickets Via Amex Offer

While we are still lining up the exact trip details, we are planning to go to Disney World this summer, and I am embarrassingly over-the-moon excited about it. I didn’t even know I wanted to go there so much until I started planning! Anyway, we were able to save on our Disney World tickets by buying through Undercover Tourist using an Amex Offer for a $30 statement credit on $150+ in Undercover Tourist purchases, and I wanted to remind you of that…

Three Slightly More Affordable Disney VIP Tours and Experiences

In trying to come up with fun and kid-friendly replacement ideas for a ‘big’ summer trip that seems to be crumbling out from under us, Disney World bubbled to the top of the list. Compared to other destinations, summer flights to Orlando are pretty reasonable, and while I’m not a total Mouse Fanatic (not that there is anything wrong with that), it’s been a couple of years since we have been to Disney World, and I’m starting to get ‘the itch’.…

The Expensive Disney Hotel I Really Want to Visit

Thanks to miles, points, and travel deals, we have been fortunate enough to visit Disney World a number of times both before, during, and after we had kids join the crew. All of those trips have been very different, but all have been great. I even found out I was pregnant with my first daughter just days before one of our Disney trips, so even though I was relegated to morning sickness and “exciting” rides like It’s a Small World for that…

Limited Time: Four Day Disney World Ticket From $74/Day

Disney World is expensive, so saving money on Disney World simply makes it less expensive, not inexpensive. That said, right now you can stack two deals to drop the price of adult Disney World tickets to about $74 per day on a four day ticket, which is probably as low as you can realistically hope for on a per day basis unless you are buying a really long ticket or hold an annual pass and are going into the parks…

Plan Now to Save on Disney Not So Scary Halloween Events!

Disney World is special pretty much 365 days a year, but on a few nights per year the special quotient is upped even higher via some themed holiday events that take place at The Magic Kingdom. Two of these annual special events are Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Not surprisingly, these are pretty popular events so planning ahead is even more crucial than normal. We enjoyed the heck out of Mickey’s Not So…

2017 Disney Ticket Price Increases Announced

I posted a couple days ago that on the heels of many fun Disney announcements about new lands opening and new shows starting that we were also probably on the verge of hearing about the annual Disney ticket price increases. Turns out, that price hike day looks like it will be today, February 12th. Not only is Disney increasing ticket prices as anticipated, but most unfortunately it seems they will be adding expiration dates to all Disney World tickets and passes,…

Beat Expected Disney Price Increase and Four Big Disney Updates!

In my tenure as a parent there are lots of things that change constantly, but there are two things I can count on to become more expensive every single year. Those two things are the cost of pre-school tuition and the cost of Walt Disney World tickets. This time of year, it is practically a certainty that we will get notice that the cost of both of those things is going up. The only question is how big is in…

Using the Sapphire Reserve Travel Credit to Purchase Tickets to Disney

These days lots of premium rewards credit cards come with an annual travel credit of some sort that you either lose or use each year. Some of these credits such as the Amex Platinum $200 airline incidental fee credit run on a calendar year schedule, and others like the Sapphire Reserve $300 travel credit run on a different schedule based on your December statement date. Since we are now into mid-November, it really is time to act on all of…
