    I listened with great interest about the restaurant discount discussion. Citrcos and flying fish used to be two of our favorites, but then they changed the menus. I am sure all of the new dishes being offered are lovely but they are a little too fussy for me. Flying fish used to have a signature potato wrap snapper which was wonderful and citrcos had a lovely salmon. Both are gone and so am I. The pricing even with tables in wonderland seems almost insulting. I would rather go to the bull and bear if I am going to spend that kind of money. We have become “locals” and we have found other lovely places to eat.

    You mentioned about how we save money when going to WDW. Here is my list of how we save money when going to WDW. We travel with tweens so my list may be different that people who travel with smaller kids.
    1. We use our Disney Visa all year or year(s) long saving points to use on our next Disney Vacation. Our last trip in July we had $400 points that we saved.
    2. Don’t switch between WDW and Universal Studios. The price of the ticket per day drops the more days you buy at WDW. 7 day Adult base is $410 If you do 5 days at WDW and two days at Universal Studios that is the total price between the two parks is $570. Not worth it stick to one resort. If you do one day Universal Studios that is a flat $100 plus what you already paid to WDW. Plus you need to find a way to get to Universal.
    3. Drive to WDW. Then load up the car with food, drink, and adult beverages that you can keep in your room to eat instead of buying the food at the resorts or parks. Food can sometimes be more than the park tickets if you don’t pay attention. If you rent a car make a stop at Walmart or Costco and stock up. A case of 40 water bottles at Costco is $2.99.
    4. Bring your own water in aluminum water bottles that keep the water cold and that you can refill at the water fountain. Pain in the butt to carry those bottles around but if you are looking to save money.
    5. If you are really trying to do Disney on a budget do not eat at the sit down restaurants. At the Sci-Fi Drive in the Hamburgers are $19. Try to eat only at quick service, resort food courts, or even go off the resort where every chain restaurant is available. We always hit Cici’s pizza buffet once a trip for $5.99. Or pick one sit down restaurant for a special vacation meal. Avoid character meals you are paying basically to get a picture with the characters, you will never eat the amount of food you are paying for. Especially for the kids. A 7 year old is not going to $20 worth of eggs and mickey waffles.
    6. During our last trip my wife and I ate our breakfast off the kids menu at Everything Pop. The kids Mickey Waffle platter came with two waffles, 4 pieces of meat, fruit, and a juice or milk. The cast members even let us substitute our juice for coffee. There breakfast was the perfect size for all of us. Price $4.99.
    7. Pack enough clothes to just use carry-ons for your flight then do laundry at your resort. Each load of laundry at Pop Century was $6. Way cheaper than $50 round trip baggage fees. Don’t over pack your clothes no one cares what you look like at WDW. Just keep it appropriate.

    8. If you decide to stay at an offisite hotel read the fine print and add up these items together: Car Rental + Gas + Resort Fees + Park Parking – Free Breakfast if your hotel offers. You can still rent a car but for a week you are saving $140 right off the bat because if stay at a WDW resort you don’t pay parking.
    9. Have a plan going into the parks you get more of your money’s worth if you can experience the most amount of attractions in the time you have allotted.
    10. Buy your trinkets ahead of time. Like little fans, glow sticks, etc..before you leave for your trip.
