    I was wondering, how do you save for your Disney holiday?

    I used to keep a penny jar and put 2 coins in it as well as any other change I saw lying around.

    What do you do









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I used to buy Disney dollars each pay day and then calculate costs for a restaurant we wanted to go to and use the envelope system. That works pretty well. I don't have a Disney store to go to any longer to buy Disney dollars. I can buy the gift cards just about everywhere but they can be harder to keep track of

    I plan to do that money saving thing this year as well.

    I've been really bad this past year about saving money ahead of time. I plan to change my habits this year.

    It's a high interest savings account....well, it's meant to be it's the best sort of account for money that you're not going to touch. It's also tax free up to 5500 so you don't pay any tax on the interest. You're only allowed one per person though, so we have one for WDW savings and one for normal savings.
