Blogger Karine Pigeon, a complete Disney fan, can say that she has made her dream come true more than once. At 42, this ex-resident of Stoneham now lives in the Orlando area and visits the magical world of Disney every week. Also a mother of three children, she has been there at least 100 times. So much so that employees now call him by his first name. A true encyclopedia of the Disney universe, she tells us here her tips for saving money!

For the four Disney parks (Magic Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom) the amount varies depending on the time of year. The holiday season and American Thanksgiving week should be avoided. In general, the price of admission ranges between US$100 and US$135 per day and around US$370 for a four-day pass. You can save about $20 per three- to four-day pass by buying them at a Walmart near Disney. The CAA also sometimes offers attractive prices for the purchase of ski passes.

To eat

Everything is expensive at Disney, why not bring your lunch and snacks? Don't forget your water bottle that you can refill throughout the day, especially when a bottle costs $3.

Sleeping on site is a luxury. Opt instead for the city of Kissimmee, just 5 minutes from the park. You can find rooms there for as little as $40 a night, sometimes with breakfast included.


Your kids will probably be begging you to buy souvenirs at Disney! For maximum savings, head to Disney's Character Warehouse. You can sometimes find discounts of 50-90% on certain souvenirs. Two such discount stores are at the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlet and the Orlando International Premium Outlet.
