If an extra $7 a week is going to make a difference on your vacation, then you shouldn't be taking a vacation. When I go on vacation I don't worry about money. If I have to think about every dollar here and there then it's not much of a vacation. And just to clarify I'm not spending over $5k when I get to my destination or anything absurd like that. I usually spend less $1k for a week-long vacation, but I don't ever feel like I am being cheap either. By taking your time to shop around for air, hotel, car, and buying tickets in advance you have just paid for at least half of the cost of your vacation and probably saved a decent amount of money. Packages deals are rarely the best way to go and pays to be willing to spend a full day looking at as many travel sites as possible. Additionally, saving money for your trip in advance helps a lot.
When you go on vacation park tickets and parking are things you can't do anything about. You either pay or you don't get to play. You can save money on tickets by buying in advance online. And if you really don't want to pay for parking then stay on property without a car.
