Take how many months away your trip is and divide by your balance to come up with your “monthly payment” amount. Then, get creative in saving for Disney! Some ideas include rolling change, earning with apps such as Dabbl and Shopkick, get started with Swagbucks, selling unwanted items and using a Target Red card to score 5% off Disney gift cards (which can be used to pay down your Disney Resort, part tickets and more).
