102 Ways to Save Money at WDW #review

This review for 102 Ways to Save Money at Walt Disney World by Lou Mongello is part of a Magical Blogorail sponsored campaign. Copies of the book were received free of charge for a review. Opinions are those of the reviewer and do not represent those of the author.  Your opinion may vary.

Pre 2011 half marathon
Lou Mongello was one of the first people in the Disney community I discovered through his podcast, WDW Radio, has been on for many years, going in depth behind the scenes at the Disney parks and resorts, live dining reviews, interviews with legends, and so much more. I've even run with his running team, raising money for Make A Wish foundation! His trivia books and audio guides of the Magic Kingdom are fan favorites, and his newest book, 102 Ways to Save Money at Walt Disney World is a great addition to a Disney book collection!

102 Ways to Save Money at Walt Disney World is filled with out of the box tips for saving money.  There are several sections of tips, separated with stunning photographs of around WDW - win, win in my book!  There are sections on how to save on tickets, resorts, when to go, before you go, and many more, each filled with great tips about all of the topics.

Beyond the 102 is a Bonus! section with 40 things to do, get, see, eat, and collect!  I love the different things that Walt Disney World offers -  Because, really, it's Lou and a Top Ten always has at least 12.

Something new and unusual (at least to me) - I downloaded this book as a PDF format - with clickable links, so if you get the online version instead of the paperback version, you'll have links to many different websites that Lou has provided for the reader to get even more information about specific topics!

This book has so many great tips - tips I've heard and thought to use, but seem to always forget, or tips that honestly, most people just don't know!  I think that this book can help Walt Disney World first timers and experienced vacationers save money on their vacations

Disney expert and podcasting pioneer, Lou Mongello, shares 102 ways you can have the most magical Disney vacation without breaking the bank in this comprehensive, detailed, 197-page guide.  102 Ways to Save Money For and At Walt Disney World guide is a MUST HAVE for any family planning toward a Disney vacation.

  1. I love your personal connection to Lou Jenn; running with the WDW Radio Team is still on my Disney Bucket Billboard. Another bonus is your point about downloading the ebook, so that you have the many clickable links at the ready!!

  2. I also liked Lou's top items. Thought it was funny he could never stick to one and you are right I agree with him all the way.

  3. His top tens are always a favorite of mine on his podcast so I love that included some of his favorites in the book too. :)

  4. I too love his Top Tens! And I've really enjoyed this book!

  5. I thought that the forty extra tips (mostly about free things to do at the resorts) were one of the most enjoyable and unique parts of the book! ;) great review.

  6. I agree with your statement that the book contains things I've heard and thought to use but always forget! I like that Lou's book has all those things written down for me, so now I can just scroll through the pages like a checklist :)

  7. Great review, Jenn, thanks for sharing!
