At the Hotel

Over and over again we get questions about people wanting to know the best way to plan your day at disney. What a lot of people forget about are the events that happened right at the hotel. If we get a hotel room at Disney for five nights, as an example, probably only two days will we go to the actual Theme Parks. It is too much fun just to do all the neat things that go on around the disney resorts such as the Swan Resort or the Beach Club Resort. Having so many things to do within Walking distance really opens up your opportunities for maximizing each day. There is no wasting time, and the swimming pools are enough on their own to just make me happy. Put me at the Swimming Pool for a few hours in the afternoon and eventually I will find my way over to the Poolside Bar. That is the beginning of my evening pleasures, and everything is nice and downhill from there on out!

Going on Vacation

Going on vacation to Disney world means you have a refrigerator, yay! I always get so excited, it's a blessing to take a trip to a fun city with all the bells and whistles. I would certainly save money and stop at the winn-dixie store winndixie.com or the Publix and load up on your groceries, wine, but cold Beer and your sodas.

I have to admit I like those winn-dixie stores because they have a lot of deals all the time and then the Publix has the buy one get one free or bogo they call it. When you log into the winn-dixie website you can click on savings and there's a drop-down list and then you want to click on weekly ad. I just noticed for the first time they have a weekly coupon add for the entire season for the wine and spirits and you can buy there at the store.

We are big fans of Disney world and the Epcot showcase of restaurants but don't like to pay for the Alcohol because of the prices. On the menu is the holiday cranberry citrus punch made with grey goose vodka, that sounds good to get you psyched up for some rides At the Theme Parks. When you get to their ad and their flyer, all you do is click on each page to see it all, as your item or the things you're searching for my not be on sale on page one. They might be there so just got a scroll the real quick to find the deals. They sell bud light, coors light, heineken, corona light, samuel adams it just about every other kind of beer you can think of that is popular and in demand. You might not find the craft beers that are a little more obscure and for that you probably need to go over to the total wine store which has all that other stuff. I would've never thought of johnny walker blue label scotch bottle would cost two hundred dollars, oh my goodness that must be something fancy and that's on sale with the card you have to show them.

That is my tip of the day for the Disney hotel guests to stock up and take advantage of your refrigerator to save cash during your stay. You will have more money to spend inside the Animal Kingdom Theme Park or whatever your target destination is in the city.
