Disney World Ultimate Savings Guide Ebook Review – Too Good to Be True?

To form the Disney cast member created Tea The Ultimate Disney World Savings Guide to help families save money at Walt Disney World. I also wanted to provide you with tips and techniques to maximize your time and make the most of your Orlando vacation.

We’ve all seen these e-books all over the web that claim to have secrets that no one else knows and that the world promises to you. I myself have wasted my money on some of these in the past.

However, she was very interested to see if money could really be saved at Disney World, as she claims. Considering that I live an hour’s drive from Disney and have a 2-year-old son, I thought I would soon need to know these secrets for years to come.

With that said, I bought the e-book and downloaded it from the download page.

When I opened the e-book, I will say that my initial response was a disappointment due to the length of the book, 140 pages (40 pages of which are reader comments with suggestions and websites, forms, more suggestions, etc.). Some people might like long e-books, but I don’t.

I like that they get straight to the point, leaving out all the fluff. I also don’t like having to read on the computer screen for hours on end.

However, the more I read the book, the more satisfied I feel. I came across a lot of tips and ideas that I was unaware of.

POSITIVE

The e-book is very comprehensive and gives you information on how to save money on accommodation, meals, tickets, and souvenirs.

It even gives you information on nearby hospitals and provides forms to help you keep track of reservations, confirmations, and other important information for your trip.

The guide begins by discussing ways to save money on accommodation. This includes staying at one of the Disney resorts, nearby hotels, or vacation properties.

Accommodation is likely to be one of the biggest expenses of the trip. The author does a good job of explaining his different accommodation options and how to find the best deal.

He even goes into extreme detail by providing tables with the different rates according to the different seasons (high season, low season, festive season, etc.)

One of the strategies explained in this section could possibly save you hundreds if you choose one of the most expensive Disney resorts. It involves a bit of work and some risk, but it seems worth the effort.

I was also able to see how money could be saved using another of the tips you provided in the guide. It explains how to find a vacation rental property and the pros and cons of staying in a vacation property compared to staying in a hotel.

Then the author discusses the different ways to save money on your tickets. Without a doubt, one of the best ways to save money on 1-2 day tickets with Disney is by attending timeshare presentations.

But most people don’t want to spend their precious vacation time fighting high pressure salespeople for 2-3 hours.

The author does a good job of explaining the other ways to save money on tickets. But don’t expect to find free or even $ 10 Disney tickets anywhere without attending a timeshare presentation.

You can save more by using the author’s techniques on multi-day tickets with additional options like Park Hopper (ability to go to different Disney parks with just one ticket) and the No Expiration option.

Although the author does a good job of providing a lot of useful information, there are a few things that I think would improve the guide.

NEGATIVE

I think the presentation of the information could be improved and should be shortened.

I have already expressed my disdain for long e-books.

Maybe it’s my short attention span, but I thought the book was too long and boring in places.

Also throughout the e-book are areas of large blocks of text. Separating this large block into paragraphs would have made the information on the screen easier to read and would have been more scannable when reviewing the specific information.

VERDICT

Overall, I’d say the Disney Secrets guide is worth it. You may be able to find some of the tips on your own by scouring the web for hours on end in forums, signing up for newsletters, and other time-consuming methods.

You certainly can, and you can find ways to save. However, I would recommend investing in the guide and using it to start planning your trip. The guide will undoubtedly pay for itself with the information it contains.

After all, time is money and children are ready to visit the happiest place in the world.
