Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”- Mark Twain

New Goal: Saving money in DISNEY WORLD!

I've wanted to go back to Disney World for years. The last time I was there was about eight years ago, and I've been longing to go back ever since. After years of suggesting to DH that we go, he's finally agreed. We've booked for nine nights, starting the last week of February!

From what I remember, everything in Disney is expensive. We chose to stay at a non-Disney hotel, which is on Disney property, (one of the few that are in the Downtown Disney area). The price was excellent and I will have family staying there at the same time for part of our trip. Since the resort we chose doesn't offer the Dining Package, we will be on our own to purchase food. This scares me a bit, because I remember the price of a hot dog being unreal.

I'd like some input on money saving ideas in Disney. Does anyone out there have any tricks or tips? I'm looking for money saving ideas on everything from transportation from the airport, park tickets, to most of all food. We would like to also take in Universal Studios, but aren't sure of the best way to get there.

I'm so excited for this! We've been saving for awhile, and now it's finally in motion! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
