tzoo.hd.78650.0.215385.disneyThis year prices are going up again for popular Orlando attractions. This will turn some folks off, but for those for whom Disney or Universal is a rite of passage or a treasured family vacation, here are some ways to save on an Orlando trip:

Off-site hotels

Options abound for different types of visitors. Finalize your list of attendees before hunting for an . Apartment-style condo units are common in the area and can often fit four or more travelers in one room. Another benefit to condo-style properties is that they often come with kitchenettes and other amenities of home, like washer-dryers and separate living areas and bedrooms. Because these hotels are so geared toward family stays, many have fun features for kids like playgrounds as well. Note that these places often charge a daily resort fee, yet it goes to a more comfortable stay. The fees can cover everything from breakfast to in-room Wi-Fi to shuttle service to the parks, which saves on parking and time.

Staying on site

If you can find a deal that fits your budget for a Disney Resort hotel, guests receive these extras: complimentary airport service, resort transportation and parking plus extended theme park hours — Extra Magic Hours — in which guests get exclusive access to select attractions at one of the theme parks one hour before or after regular hours. You can also save at official Disney hotels that are on the resort property but not owned by Disney.

Travel at the right time of year

If you’re looking to take advantage of summer vacation time, the period from mid-May to mid-June and Aug. 15 – Sept. 30 can be a great summer period to find a deal at the theme parks as school year dates vary across the United States. Peak season times in Orlando are February-March (spring break), June-August (summer vacations), Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday weeks. For the lowest rates, target January, April-May and September-October, as these are less popular times to visit.

How to find cheaper flights

Think weekday arrival and departure dates when looking at fares. Flights on Fridays and Sundays will be more expensive.

Typically airfare is cheaper to book during the week because airlines release sales Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so don’t save your vacation planning for the weekend!
