FREE Disney Vacation Planning DVD

We were *this* close to booking a trip to Disney for my birthday later this summer. Call me crazy, but I thought it would have been so fun to surprise my kids (yes, for my birthday – see? Told you I was a bit nuts.)

Anyway, when push came to shove, we decided to give ourselves another year or two to save. Even with a free place to stay and three out of five airline tickets for free (with miles), those park tickets are crazy expensive!

In the meantime, I’m enjoying my FREE Disney Vacation Planning DVD. I’m such a sap, but those overly jubilant kids get me every single time. (Sometimes I wish they’d get *that* excited about hiking the Appalachian Trail, though.)

If you are planning a trip to Disneyworld or Disneyland in the near – or distant – future, you might want to order a free planning DVD, too.

It includes:

  • A complete tour of the 4 Theme Parks, 2 Water Parks and over 20 Resort hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida
  • A tour of the Disneyland Resort in California, including 2 Theme Parks and 3 Resort hotels
  • Tips for affordable ways to stay during your Disney vacation
  • Pocket-sized planning guides and information on special events

The offer is totally free and legit – I have my DVD as “proof” – but you will be asked for an email address. And as always, I recommend that you use your freebies email just to avoid possible spam to your regular addy.

This offer is only available to U.S. and Canada residents. One per household.


  1. If you know you have awhile before going to Disney, but definitely want to go, you can also get a Disney credit card. You earn 1% back in Disney points, which are basically equivalent to Disney dollars. In the past we’ve used these points to pay for either tickets or the hotel. (We live in Florida, so a Disney hotel can be pretty cheap for us – I think we once stayed in one of their economy hotels for $49 a night.)

  2. The other thing that’s good about getting your name on Disney’s email list? Occasionally, you will get an email with a pincode – which can be worth like 30% discount on a hotel room, etc!

    Also, depending on when you go, if you get free dining (usually the fall, but not always), that can really cut down your cost. There are counter service places in each park that offer a limited kosher menu and at most of the sit-down places you can get a meal if you reserve in advance. The food wasn’t great, but it was free and we got to eat in the character restaurants etc even as we ate kosher food. We even ran into another family getting kosher food – it was very cool. We went for a week for our honeymoon (so just the two of us), stayed in a mid-level Disney resort, with food paid for. Including airfare and souvenirs, it was almost exactly $2000 (our budget).

    • Great tips, Jessica, thanks! Sounds like you guys did great on your honeymoon! I have been debating about those kosher meal plans – there’s very little about them online.

  3. Just booked a Disney trip for January (pulling the kids out of school), and found an amazing discount on tickets when you sign the kids up for a Disney education program – (I would pay *extra* for the education program). I think this is only available in the off-season:
