One of our goals for 2018 was to save enough to book to visit Walt Disney World. This would be the most we had ever saved for anything, or spent on anything (apart from the house). It was a bit scary to be honest.
We came back from Disney Land Paris in February 2018 and both wanted to get something booked and in the diary so we could begin to get excited. We worked out what we could budget and, although it is quite expensive, it is an experience both of us would love. We researched and booked for two weeks in August 2019.
If you have any tips for Walt Disney World, please do share them. It’s over a year away but already excited!
We made a savings tracker to cross off payments. I may look at clearing this early but, for now, I know it will be fully paid off before the deadline by sticking to our plan. This is without the need for loans, overdrafts or borrowing from our savings pot. All of these things would have been what we previously did to achieve the things we wanted NOW, rather than planning, waiting and saving.
Which kind of person are you? The kind who books things and has amazing experiences and then pays it off after the event, or the kind who saves and then enjoys the experience at some point in the future? Let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
