The last time we were at Disney was Hubster's 33rd Birthday, more than 8 years ago and before we had kids. We had a great time at the parks (Epcot is my favorite) but had the most fun drinking and playing pool in our hotel lobby and sitting outside Downtown Disney and watching all the kids (young and old) play in the water fountain. We must have sat there for more than an hour as we imagined coming back with children of our own some day. It's not going to happen for us this year but it is definitely something we want to do in the next two years.
Disney has some pretty good deals going on right now and with Spring Break right around the corner, it's time to use your free personal budget software and see if any of these deals work for your family.
Give a Day, Get a Disney Day
I'm sure you're familiar with this program. Right now you can sign up to volunteer for one day in your community and Disney will reward you with a one day admission ticket to either Disneyland Resort of Walt Disney World Resort. They are trying to get 1 million people to volunteer. You can only get one voucher (no matter how many times you volunteer) and everyone age 6 and up are eligible. You must pre-register on their site, and pick one of the volunteer programs listed. Promotion ends with the 1 millionth voucher printed or on December 15, 2010. What a great way to teach children about volunteering and get something back as well.
