Disneyworld or bust

Hi Guys

I am going to try and do a visit with my family, two adults and two kids (7 & 5) to the magic kingdom in Florida later this year. I will probably go for two weeks, maybe three, including staying on site. To be honest i don't particularly trust the people in the travel agents and I was just wondering if anyone here had any advice on what holiday packages offer the best value for money and if there is anythin gi need to look out for.

Also if anyone knows of any dedicated websites and that sort of thing I would be most greatful.

Many thanks in advance.

Mike:thumbsup:

above is a forum for advice on what you need etc
they also sale tickets and there prices are good but what i tend to do is find deals online then get travel agents to better them which they will do plus you have reassurance that everything has been done right
i.e we didn't want to drive from airport so we had free transfers with virgin and hired our car separately saving 250 pounds off car hire with virgin(all the insurances)
we went last june and are going back in november and our kids are 7 and 8

we will not buy disney tickets this time as we prefered seaworld universal etc but you must do disney

anything else you wish to know just ask

tbh dino i think it not a bad deal but price is probably as much as at a travel agent my holiday is costing 1900 for four with virgin for 2 weeks in a 4 star hotel .the prices can be really reasonable if you shop around .for example my travel agents have a deal where it is 399 per person for quality inn with virgin for 2wks and you all go on coach to airport togethor but it is for certain dates once a year

We are going to Florida mid march for 3 weeks staying in a 4 bed villa.. flying with Virgin paid £2100 for a family of 4 (childen 11 and 7)

Booked via Thomson but haggled between them and first choices and they kept beating each others price!! (nectar points too!)

We are going in April this year and i found travel city direct to be the cheapest at the time when i booked virgin was £2000 more expensive!!

Also travel city direct do all the attraction tickets with a price promise.

I havent flown with them before so couldnt tell you about my experience with them yet but another family member has and said that it was great.

But worth getting a quote from them.

hope that is some help to you, also they have a forum on site with loads od ideas and prices from e1.

We went 2 years ago and it was the best holiday ever as soon as we came back we started saving for the next time lol this time we are getting married over there so getting really excited now.

We are going on the 21st June for 2 weeks. We used Broadway Travel for our flights, villa and car hire and were much cheaper than anywhere else. I've also researched the different ticket options and have worked out 5 days at Disney with 4 visits to their smaller parks, and 4 park flexi pass for universal all for £230 per adult.
Flight = £339 per person
Villa = £650 total
8 seat van hire and all insurances = £400 total

Nowhere else could beat that for me

Also check the following site for reliability of any sites or more information:

Contact me if you want more info on the park tickets :thumbsup:

just goes to show you can get some great prices now .just shop around for quite a while and then get a great price match a family of four can easily fly off season 2wk in a great hotel for under 2000 .
its the passes that cost the money can almost double price of holiday .

we booked with [url]www.travelcitydirect.com[/url] 2 adults 2 children, price included hotel on I-drive, car, flights for less than £1,800 last year for late oct-nov.
the £ is strong against the $ so try getting passes direct from disney, you may get a better deal. also hotels may be a better deal if you book direct with the exchange rate being so good?

Don't forget to get adequate medical insurance before you go.

Me and the missus went to California on honeymoon. We had to go to hospital because she had crippling stomach pains. First question was "Are you insured?" She only had blood and urine tests done and that cost over £300 :shock: :shock: and that was 9 years ago. Turns out she was pregnant so not all bad news but I was glad I had insurance.

Don't get insurance from the estate agents though.

We will probably be staying at one of the resort hotels. Does anyone have any experiance of these.

Many thanks for the links, I have also found one called Mousesavers.com which seemed pretty good.

Many thanks

All Disney hotels are of a Good to Outstanding standard and very safe.

If anybody goes to Universal Studios and goes for the 2 day or 7 day ticket(you can do both universal parks in two days), you must use the ticket on consecutive days i.e. Monday, Tuesday. If you go Monday and turn up on Wednesday you will have wasted $7 for parking. This is in contrast to Disney’s meaning of consecutive days, they don’t mind what days you turn up.

I stayed on international drive but when my sister went she stayed in one of the disney hotels the pop one i think and she didn't think it was all that good .alot of people have told me staff do not like to give out information about other companies i.e universal etc .
but then an upside is you can park for free in the disney carparks at the parks etc if you choose to drive .

Have used this crowd before.

Also, try www.airmiles.co.uk
You don't have to use airmiles. Staff really helpful.
They were able to get me flights to San Diego when nobody else could and at a decent price.
You also receive airmiles from them when you pay in cash.
Worth signing up for their offers too.
