A vacation to Disney World provides an opportunity to experience multiple Disney theme parks, water parks and several other non-Disney theme parks. Orlando is the official theme park capital of the planet and features hundreds of dining, entertainment and shopping options for all budgets, taste and interest. With the price of tickets to Walt Disney World increasing to triple digits this year, visitors seeking ways to save money on meals and transportation.
Choosing a hotel with a free shuttle to the park and complimentary breakfast is a great way to cut cost and maximize your precious vacation dollars.
