Road Testing The Guide: My Personal Story

I know you want to know where the savings guide really does save you money. I completely understand how you feel because a while ago, I was looking for a review of the book myself. But I didn’t find anything genuine and that’s why I created this website to help people like you make an informed decision before buying. I also want to share my story with you in the process :)

We decided to take our children on a vacation to Disney World and stumbled across this book while researching our trip. We actually had never been to any of the Theme Parks before so it was a little bit overwhelming trying to figure our all of the ways we could see everything we wanted to see. At this stage we hadn’t booked our flights or accommodation and I’m so glad we hadn’t because once we went through the book we were able to get some really great ideas for both of those. We saved $150 on the normal room rates for the hotel we stayed at and we found some cheaper airfares which saved us a combined total of $423!

The thing with taking kids to such a place is that they want to do & see everything which is not always easy to do when you’re on a budget. Unfortunately children don’t seem to know the meaning of the word ‘budget’ so often times you have to compromise with them. The real value of having this book is that we learnt where to get free dining deals as we all know how expensive food can be at some of these places. We also found out where to get the best discount theme park tickets.

We’ve been to other theme parks around the country before and what usually happens is we run out of money pretty quickly because we tend to just spend it indiscriminately. With the savings guide in hand we were able to plan our way around the park and in fact it became a fun game to see where and how we could take advantage of all the discounts we read about. From the tips in the book we were able to work out what things to bring with us instead of paying the prices they charged inside the park.

We had the time of our lives and I think made even more enjoyable because we were well organized. We knew exactly what we were going to do because we had pre-planned. I’m not sure exactly how much money we saved by the end of our stay but I’m guessing it must have been over $1000 when you include the airfare and accommodation deals. I definitely recommend getting the book though. We did look at a couple of others including some of the information we were given by the hotel.

None of them had the number of great money saving tips included in this book.
