A friend asked me this morning whether my math was correct. Yep, $5000 is the total cost for our family of 6 to spend a full week at Walt Disney World.

First, we’ll take advantage of one of the great deals Disney offers for off-season travel. Right now, it’s Kids Eat and Play Free. Last time we went, we took advantage of the free meal plan. Plus, we go in early September, which is one of the least expensive AND least crowded times!  We never waited more than about 20 minutes for any ride or attraction.
