102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World - by Lou Mongello

I enjoy passing along fun experiences to help you feel a little closer to the magic of Disney, no matter where you may be.  I recently read a book about ways to save money at Walt Disney World, which means that YOU could have more Disney fun on your next trip!
"102 Ways To Save Money For and At Walt Disney World" by Lou Mongello shares current tips that he has learned throughout his years of visiting and compiling Disney information since 1971.  Lou has written 2 Walt Disney World Trivia Books, Audio Guides, and is the Host of the WDW Radio Podcast which has been voted the current Best Travel Podcast (and has held that role from 2006-2013).  He's a great source of Disney knowledge and he shares his tips with you in his latest book.
Why 102 ways to save money instead of the "normal" 101?  Well, in Disney terminology, Cast Members (Disney employees) have codes and the "normal" 101 ways to do anything just would not work for serious Disney enthusiasts.  You see, when an attraction is "101," it means the attraction is closed and/or not properly functioning.  When the attraction is "102" that means it's back up and running...just as Lou hopes your vacation planning should be after you read this book.  
In this book, you'll learn the basics of what to know before you go:
What to pack, best time of year for you to visit, tickets, resorts, dining, shopping and so much more.  This book is most helpful to show people ways to go to Walt Disney World and get the most value out of your vacation budget.  Even I learned some tips that will save money after my 14 years and countless visits to my favorite place!  Many new Disney vacationers don't realize the size and magnitude of this magical place.  The book is filled with great website links that will also help in your prep.  I have personaally enjoyed the in-depth statistics about the Disney Resorts as well as listing websites to go for Disney Discount Codes and the amount of percent you can save by following his tips.  Web links are so helpful, as they are always updated with the most current information and Lou does a live show every Wednesday night on the Internet where you are welcome to watch the latest news & information...and you can even ask him questions personally by creating a FREE User Name & Password through UStream.  

It can be a little overwhelming once you get here and may not have realized there are 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, 23 resort hotels, 4 18-hole golf courses, 2 miniature golf courses, marinas and sports activities to be enjoyed throughout the property, dining/dinner show options, shopping, entertainment, DisneyQuest (a 5-floor Gaming paradise).

I know from personal experience that my first trip to Walt Disney World could have been so much better if I knew the tips of time and money-savers that I know today.  Let this book help you to make the most out of your vacation dollars and your trip to Walt Disney World, whether you're there for a day or a week.  Another great feature is that you can purchase this as an E-Book to take it with you anywhere while you are preparing for your trip.  The book is available online by following this link: www.Disney102.com as well as on Amazon & Kindle.

  2. I really need to get that book. I'm taking the family to Disney World next summer and as much as we're looking forward to it, we are on a budget. I found a good page though to book hotels nearby and for a good price orlando.hotelscheap.org
