Ways to Save or Earn money for trips to Disney World:

  1. Have a Yard sale
  2. If you don't sell everything at your yard sale, auction the larger or more expensive items on E-Bay: Click here for eBay!  
  3. Recycle cans and bottles.
  4. Clip coupons (and use them).  
  5. Take an empty coffee can, put a slit in the top, and label it The Disney Trip Fund.  Throw any spare change, found money, medical reimbursement checks, rebates, money saved from can returns, and coupons into this jar.  Once a month, roll the coins, and deposit into your savings account.
  6. Kids can earn money by doing chores around the house.  Go to your local Disney store and buy some Disney dollars, and pay your kids with these.  That way, this money is "ear-marked" for the Disney trip
  7. Take part in surveys online.  Some surveys pay cash.
  8. Here is a site with lots more paid to surf, paid to survey sites:  http://www.money4surveys.com/PAID.HTM
  9. Baby sit.
  10. Pet sit.
  11. Place ads in the want ads or local newspaper for larger items for sale that you no longer want.
  12. Mail in rebate forms.
  13. Get a part-time job. 
  14. Sell items at a Flea Market.
  15. Trade videos with friends rather than renting them.
  16. Enter sweepstakes and contests with trips to Disney World as prizes.  Click here for a listing of some.  Sweepstakes 
  17. Pack your own lunches for work and school most days.  Those dollars can add up. 
  18. If you visit Walt Disney World often (or plan to), consider buying an Annual Pass They have discounted rooms (sometimes up to 40% off) and some restaurant meals available to Annual Pass holders, as well as other benefits.
  19. Do you belong to AAA?  Ask them about their benefits at Walt Disney World.
  20. Bring your old clothes to a clothing resale shop.
  21. Consider buying the refillable mugs if you are staying at an on-site Disney resort.  They can save you a bundle at the food court.
  22. Order water with lemon at meals - it's free.
  23. Small appetite?  Split an entree at a Disney restaurant.  Or order an appetizer at a Disney restaurant instead of an entree. 
  24. Before leaving home for your Disney World trip, pack some snacks.  Also, pack some pop tarts (or similar items) for breakfast so you only have to buy 2 meals per day.
  25. Check out the Discounts page for more money-saving ideas.  There are phone numbers on that page to call for coupons and discounts in the Walt Disney World area, including hotels, rental cars, dinner shows, theme parks, restaurants, shopping, and area attractions.
  26. Open a storefront on eBay.com
  27. If you take all your old sporting goods like skates that don't fit anymore and including things like pads, gloves, helmets, etc. you can trade them in for cash!!  I traded in old sparring stuff and some old hockey pads that fit my son when he was younger and got $28 (from Play It Again Sports). I would not have received that much in a yard sale.  Peggy G. from Massachusetts.
  28. Find stores in your area that pay cash for used movies and video games.
  29. Get a part time temporary job in time for the holidays.
  30. Join rewards programs.  If you don't mind clicking around the internet a lot, you can earn money for your Disney trips this way.  Here are some:
