So my family and I are Disney obsessed. We have been the last two years and are now planning our 2013 trip. The last two trips have been wonderful, magical everything we could have dreamed but this year we are hoping to be a bit more frugal. We also may be joined by our extended families so we were pricing and it seems to stay off Disney property we could save a ton. Even with the $14 a day parking fee that we would pay to get into the parks. But it really seems that this may be the way to go. Has anyone done it? Any advice on saving money by staying offsite? I know the reality is we will probably cook more ourselves and like I said before we will have to pay for parking. Are there any tips to avoid paying for parking?
