Given my frugal tendencies, I was not thrilled about the costs involved. According to Huffington Post, the average price for a family of 4 to Disneyland can hover close to $5,000. Sorry Zoey, Daddy loves you, but that’s freaking ridiculous.

After taking a deep breath, I endeavored to find a way to make this family trip possible. After all, a sunny vacation in California did sound pretty nice.
