Which Is Cheaper: Disneyland or Disney World?
Almost all Southerners have taken a trek down to Orlando to experience the 'Happiest Place On Earth'. It's an adventure in and of itself – but a trip to Disney World, especially with children, can be a pricey memory. Our friends at Coinage compared the Southern favorite destination with the California-based Disneyland. Just as you can imagine, the ticket price is steep for both Disney locations. But, surprisingly, a trip for a family of four is around $500 cheaper at one of the two parks, if you're including ParkHopper passes, Disney lodging, and a meal plan. Be sure to check out this insider scoop so that you can plan your next vacation accordingly.
