102 Ways To Save For & At Walt Disney World: A Book Review

Disclosure: No compensation was received for this post. I was provided with a complimentary digital copy of 102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World by Lou Mongello for the purpose of this review.

Walt Disney World is truly a magical place. I visited with my family for the first time in 20 years back in 2011 and we enjoyed it so much that we've returned each year since. And while a Disney vacation is always a lot of fun, it is definitely not inexpensive. As the cost of a Walt Disney World vacation continues to increase, there has never been a better time for a book dedicated solely to the goal of saving money for and at Walt Disney World. Lou Mongello, author of the Walt Disney World Trivia Books Volume 1 & 2, host of the insanely popular online radio show WDW Radio and Disney World expert has delivered with 102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World.

102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World is the definitive money-saving manual for anyone planning a trip to Walt Disney World. Packed with tips on how to keep more money in your pocket, the book also includes fun trivia facts, gorgeous photography and countless links to additional resources. Whether you've been there dozens of times or are planning your first trip (especially if you're planning your first trip!), this book will help you stretch your budget so that you can make the most of your Disney vacation.

In the book, Lou brings it all together. His 102 tips span all aspects of a Disney vacation. From how to save before you go (where you can find free money to put toward your trip) to saving when you buy your park tickets (stay longer pay less?); from deciding when to go (save money by turning the page on your calendar) to stretching your dollars at the park (planning ahead really helps) 102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World covers it all. Sure, you can find some of these tips scattered around online but this book is a compendium of money-saving resources that can't be rivaled. With 102 Ways to Save Money For & At Walt Disney World it's all in the palm of your hand.

And, as if the 102 tips were not enough, Lou provides a bonus: 40 free things to do, get, see, eat and collect! Even a three-year running Disney vet like me didn't realize there were 40 free things to do at Walt Disney World. Just by reading this section of the book, I've been enlightened with some new ideas for our next family trip to the World. Lou even provides a money back guarantee on his book. If you can't save at least the price of the book on your next Disney World vacation, he will refund the purchase price.

Whether you're an experienced Disney World traveler who thinks he knows every trick in the book to saving money (you probably don't) or a first-timer who is getting ready to immerse herself in the magic of a Disney World vacation, 102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World is a must read. 102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World is available on as a paperback or a kindle book and at
