Disney Travel 2021

Disney World is one of the most popular travel destinations in the United States. In 2019, over 20.9 million people visited Disney World, as noted by Statista.com.  Please remember that these numbers were before the pandemic occurred. Today, we are operating in the post-COVID-19 world that has changed the way people experience just about everything. This is even true to those visiting the most magical place on earth.

COVID-19 Regulations When Visiting Disney World

As reported on Disney World.disney.go.com, the following regulations must be followed to visit:

Enhanced Protective Measures:

Mandatory face coverings are required for both Cast Members and Guests ages two and older, with the addition of hand-washing stations and physical barriers, where appropriate

Physical Distancing:

Theme park capacity will be reduced to enable physical distancing and add appropriate signs to help guests move responsibly throughout the property.

Temperature Checks:

Before entering Disney World, all guests will have to go through a temperature screening. Also, health screenings and temperature checks will be required daily for Cast Members.

Limited-Contact Enhancements:

It is recommended for all Guests to use cashless payment options, including debit cards, credit cards, Disney Gift Cards, or Magic Bands.

Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitation:

Enhanced cleaning protocols have been implemented for your and your family's safety.

Park Reservations:

Because theme park capacity will be significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing, attendance will be managed through a new theme park reservation system that will require all Guests, including Annual Passholders, to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance.

Cost Savings While Visiting Disney World

To enjoy Disney World, you have to be prepared to spend money.  A trip to Disney World can add up fast. You have to pay travel expenses such as airfare or gas if you are driving and parking.  On top of lodging and meals for you and your family.  All of this is on top of the expenses to enter the park, pay for food and unique items while visiting Disney World.  For example, a family of four will have to pay $436 ($109 per person for the lowest day pass available) before taxes to experience Disney World.

We know that everyone has a different budget in mind, but we wanted to share a great resource called Inside the Magic to plan for your next trip to Disney World on a budget.  Inside the magic recommends that you take the following actions when visiting Disney World:

Visit on a Weekday:

If you want to see some significant savings on tickets for Walt Disney World theme parks, Disney often offers lower ticket prices during the week compared to the weekend.

Avoid Holidays:

The holiday season is one of the year’s busiest times at Walt Disney World. That means Disney’s dynamic pricing model to price out their admission tickets makes it very expensive during that time of year. Late November, December, and early January are all times of the year to avoid if you want to save money on tickets.

Consider an Annual Pass:

To Decide the ticket type that is right for you and your family, consider an Annual Pass to maximize savings if you plan to return to Walt Disney World in the next 12 months.
