Walt Disney World is a fantastic place to visit as an adult group. This blog will help you in sticking to your budget when travelling as a larger group.

Walt Disney World isn’t just for families; more and more adult groups are experiencing the adrenaline-inducing attractions, fantastic entertainment and restaurant options, and relaxing in one of the many nearby hotels and villas.

But how do you stick to your budget when travelling as a larger group? Take a look at our handy advice:

Use apps 

There’s loads of free and cheap mobile phone apps now available to help you have a hassle-free holiday, many of which focus on the budget side of things. If you’re worried about going over your spending limit, consider downloading a money tracker and input all your purchases into it as you go. This is great as a group, but also individually - it may be the case that you have a different budget to other members in your group, and this will help you to keep track of what you’re spending.

Additionally, splitting the bill apps are a great way to make sure no one is paying too much/too little during dinner or drinks. You can easily make note of who owes who what using these apps too. A quick research online will reveal which app is best for your group.

Stay in a villa

Renting a villa for the duration of your holiday is usually much more cost efficient than staying in individual hotel rooms, if travelling as a larger group. You’ll also have the luxury of having your own kitchen and entertainment space, which will save you even more money and allow you to unwind in your own private space after a day in the Disney Parks. Villas in Orlando usually come with their own pool too - you usually won’t have to share this with anyone else and again it makes for a perfect way to take a chill day.

Rent a car 

While many visitors to Walt Disney World usually don’t feel the need to rent a car during their trip, if you’re travelling as a group of friends you may find that hiring a car for your trip costs very little extra, as you are splitting the costs between more adults. You’ll also be able to share the driving, which is perfect for the Florida road trips you should definitely take during those Disney Park away days. You’ll also be able to explore the Orlando area more too, sampling great restaurants and amazing nightlife.

Plan your meals/drinks 

When on holiday, it’s tempting to eat out every evening if you’re traveling as a large adult group - the drinks are often flowing too! Stay on top of your budget by pre-planning your dining habits as a group. Do some research before, and make sure to take advantage of local happy hours or lunch/dinner specials at restaurants. 

Of course, you are still on holiday, so make sure you pick one/two nights to treat your group to a meal at a special restaurant. If you’ve been budgeting for the rest of the trip, this will feel like even more of a special occasion and you will enjoy it even more.

Swap Disney Merch

Getting those all important photos complete with Disney Ears and other merchandise is a vital part of any group trip to Walt Disney World Resort. Save money and swap and share your ears/clothing. This will make your photos look varied and fun, but means that you can split costs of the merchandise and keep to your budget. Liven up your photos with your friends and create lasting group memories, and remember to get that classic Castle shot! 


As you can see, an all-adults trip to Walt Disney World can be budget-friendly and cost-efficient by following these handy tips. Why not browse our attraction tickets and start planning your group trip to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida now!
