Money Saving Theme Park Tips

By Sabrina Tosh

Are you planning a trip to a theme park but worried about the expenses? By following these tips, you’ll be able to enjoy your theme park visit without breaking the bank. Happy saving! Here are some tips to help you save money during your visit: 

  1. Make a budget: Allocate a designated amount of money towards different spending buckets, and have a maximum limit so you can adjust and scale back accordingly. Could you spend less money on souvenirs or food? Here’s your chance to estimate before actually spending anything.  
  2. Buy tickets in advance: Most theme parks offer discounted tickets if you purchase them online in advance. Plan and buy tickets before you arrive at the park. 
  3. Use outside sources for savings: Use third-party sources for deals and savings, including deal sites. Your work may offer third-party discounts, and similarly, so can your credit card company. Be sure to check! 
  4. Follow social media pages for flash sales and promotions, and subscribe to their e-mail newsletters for updates. 
  5. Bring your own food and drinks: Food and drinks inside the park can be expensive. To save money, pack your own snacks, water bottles, and lunch. Most theme parks have lockers you can even store coolers in. (Be sure to check the park’s policy beforehand to ensure your theme park allows outside food and drinks.) 
  6. Get the package: Check out the theme park’s food and drinks package; sometimes buying one and splitting it between a few members of the group, (if it is not in violation of policy), can be a big money saver in the end. 
  7. Go during off-peak season: Visiting the park during off-peak season can save you a lot of money on tickets, lodging, and flights; plus, you’ll avoid the crowds and long lines. 
  8. Look into season passes: Once in a theme park, deals are presented on season passes at specific parks where just going even one more time will be worth the money you spend on a season pass. Calculate if it is worth it for you. 
  9. Share expenses: If you’re traveling with a large group of family members or friends, consider sharing expenses such as parking fees, gas, and food costs. You’ll save money and have more fun together. 
  10. Book your stay: Check out Best Western® Hotels and Resorts for a convenient and comfortable stay at during your theme park vacation!
