Disney vacations

The least crowded time to visit is from Labor Day to Thanksgiving and from the week after President's Day (mid-February) to the start of Spring Break (mid-March).

You can definitely make the most of your vacation by staying at one of the Disney World hotels. If you do, you will enjoy special benefits such as Magic Hours, discounts at six Disney World golf courses, and the special Walt Disney World quality and service.

But if you choose to stay at one of the many hotels near Disney World, you can still visit all of the Disney properties to enjoy the atmosphere, have a meal, or shop. You may be charged for parking, but you can get validated for up to one hour of parking for each $10 you spend while you're there.

Some of the lesser known deluxe priced resorts include Walt Disney's Beach Club, BoardWalk Inn , Contemporary and the Yacht Club hotels.

Disney sells theme park tickets on their website, but you can not print the tickets, meaning you must order early and have the tickets mailed to you.
You can also buy tickets through your local auto club, Disney Store or through a school or work activities office. Many offsite hotels also sell Disney passports at the front desk.

I suggest researching Disney ticket prices in advance, and buy your pass before you get to the park. No sense wasting the first hour waiting in line at the ticket booth.
