When you hear the word splurge, there's no way that you think the word value, amiright? While I normally pride myself on my money-saving tips and tricks for clients, these 4 Walt Disney World splurges are totally worth it!
When it comes to dining, there are plenty of ways to save money at Walt Disney World. (In fact, all of my clients get tons of foodie budget tips in their e-packages!) However, signature dining can really make one meal an extra special occasion. If you're celebrating a special birthday, anniversary, engagement, or honeymoon, I highly recommend splurging on a fancy meal. You can read about my recommendations for those here.
Upgrade Your Room or Resort
There are tons of ways that you can upgrade your room or resort at Walt Disney World. Upgrading to a preferred room will get you closer to dining, transportation, or a pool area. Upgrading to a larger room or suite will give you more room to spread out, and 1+ bedroom villas will even come with a full kitchen and in-room laundry! When it comes to resort upgrades, you may consider upgrading from a moderate to deluxe, for example. Having something like the Monorail right at your resort or being within walking distance to the parks are some of the many perks of a deluxe resort. For more information about resorts, you can read about my resort overviews here and here. I also have a list of my Top Resorts for 2021.
Memory Maker is a photo package available as an add-on. It's currently $20 cheaper to buy this in advance, which is what I recommend to all booked clients. Memory Maker gives you access to all of your ride and character photos during your trip, as well as those classic must-have photos. (Think castle photos, Tree of Life photos, etc.) The photos are captured by Disney PhotoPass photographers, and you'll see them everywhere in the parks. One of the coolest aspects of Memory Maker is the addition of Magic Shots, which add a little extra magic to your family photos. One big change in 2021 is that your PhotoPass photographers will no longer take additional photos on your cell phone or camera. This means that adding on Memory Maker is a more valuable splurge than ever!
For the ultimate splurge, book a VIP Tour! Having experienced 2 of these for myself, I can 100000% vouch for the experience and value. Yes, it's a major splurge...much more so than anything else on this list! Especially with FastPasses not returning anytime soon, skipping the line has never been more worth it! Not to mention the reserved seating, private transportation, and luxurious experience! You can read about my VIP Tour experiences here!
