Go for Less: Spring training at Walt Disney World


Baseball isn't what it used to be. Ticket prices are extortion, parking rates are outright robbery, and the crowds are beyond control.

But there's still a way to enjoy America's Favorite Pastime for sensible prices and with a throwback atmosphere. Yes, at Little League, but you can also watch professional players for pennies at the annual spring training period.

WalletPop's Jason Cochran traveled to Orlando, where the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros train, to see what the experience is like and find out just how affordable it can be. His visit coincided with the relaunch of Walt Disney World's Wide World of Sports as an ESPN-branded facility, where Braves spectators may find themselves on ESPN's cameras in between their visits to the major theme parks of the area.
