One of the latter is having annual passes to both Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando, and living close enough to both parks to be able to take advantage of their special opportunities for pass holders, even when they announce them sort of “last minute.” Such was the case Universal Orlando Annual Passholder holiday event, with sign ups that began only about a week and a half ahead of time.

The Absolute Least Expensive Way to Travel Off Disney/Universal Property (Or Nearly Anywhere in Central Florida)

Going to Walt Disney World or Universal Studios Florida is expensive. Airline prices are high (although you can look for cheaper prices if you check out this post), park tickets run over $100 per person per day (but you may get some small legitimate discounts through the links on this page), hotels are quite a bit of money (check out the hints on this page for some better prices), food costs a lot, and that’s all before you even think of souvenirs. If you intend to stay on Disney property for your entire trip, you can travel around for free, between Disney’s Magical Express transporting you between the airport and your Disney hotel, and then Disney’s onsite transportation system of buses, monorails and boats to get you to and from the parks and other Disney-run areas.
