Hate Disney......

Sure its not horse meat?

Sanford Airport is a really long drive away from the accomodation!

You will need another 2 to 3 grand spending money for park tickets etc. It is not a cheap holiday there now.

Visit some of the All you can eat restaurants on Intl Drive, buy budget rover tickets for the parks, and coupon coupon coupon!

Lots of deals to be had, and savings in the shops make the trip worthwhile.

Decent price considering it includes everything you need, but don't mean to p*ss on your chips, the car hire probably won't be free, there may be additional taxes payable on arrival and the hotel featured in the deal is located near Old Town - which is good for the brief visit, but not so good to set up your 11 night holiday base from.

Who are the flights with?

Good deal, not sure the photo suits the holiday destination though!

Thomas Cook I would imagine.

And the tolls...my god the tolls lol had to get out the car and beg for change from 3 different people haha
Going back in May, Can't wait!!!!

This is a great deal!

Nice to see a deal where four adults aren't sharing two double beds!

We have a 16 month old baby, presumably the flight will be full of screaming kids?

Sorely tempted by this, but I'd suggest that ignoring your free car and just ordering one direct from the net will work out cheaper, especially when you're not queuing being 200 other tourists at one desk

It's about an hours drive and a very easy one at that.

Don't be so ridiculous.

Explain why you NEED all that extra money,

And even if you did, which you don't, it is still a very cheap way of holidaying in Florida.

And this site is all about getting things cheaply.

Not unless you're going park crazy - for our next trip I've paid about £28 per person per day for 3 days to Universal. Good deals to be had for Sea World as well - you can get a second day for about £6-7 each.

Also, there's a lot more to Florida than Disney!

The car hire situation has changed a bit recently but you are right - well worth checking if adding the 'gold' package at the checkout is more expensive than booking your own from scratch. Google MSE car hire for some tips on saving yourself from all those extra insurances - you can often buy them cheaper from a broker in this country.

Booked mine from scratch for two weeks in April - I've paid about £280 for a mid-size SUV with all insurances other than 'enhanced' breakdown and additional drivers.

I'm at risk of posting too many comments here but... the tolls can be a pain in the backside if you haven't taken out the inclusive tolls option at the car rental desk as you normally don't have any change but you can actually avoid them altogether. Leave the airport and head West on Lake Mary Blvd - the trick is to drive until you get to the I4 while ignoring any signs that tell you to turn off to get to the I4. Link here.

It will maybe add 10 mins onto your journey. The exception to this is if you're driving in rush hour then the I4 can be a nightmare - then just pay for the inclusive tolls and take the 417.

Good price obviously but be aware that you're only buying a bargain flight and some very cheap (£19 a night probably) motel accommodation in a tacky area of Kissimmee The car rental might be free but the compulsory insurance will cost more than renting a car independently, as others have said.

Will the flight be full of screaming kids? Oh yes, and the ones kicking your seat back all flight, and those that run up and down the aisles wanting the toilet constantly. If you're really lucky you'll get some younger teenagers amusing themselves having a 'wind-breaking' contest in the row behind you. How do I know this?

Having said all that I'd go at this kind of price, but with the possibility of having to move to better accommodation if necessary.

The room is £460 ish, on Expedia. Why post when you quite literally do not have a clue what you are talking about?

Then you bizarrely go on to complain that KIDS might be on the holiday flight. What kind of idiot expects a holiday flight to have no kids on. Not that there will be so many kids on board, me and the missus went in December and the flight was full and had about ten kids on it.

Cor thanks............. no need to acknowledge my contribution, I don't seek praise.

Well I booked and changed the accomadation to Wyndham Lake Buena Vista for an extra 200 quid. It has a 10 min shuttle to the park and has good reviews so Im happy!
Im guessing I should just leave the car given the comments. Any more advice welcom!

I've stayed at the Wyndham on International Drive, albeit a few years ago. It was very nice (positively palatial compared to the usual standard of hotel rooms in the USA) and, at the time, about the best hotel in the area but you can't beat a Villa!

There's a very nice Bahama Breeze and some great shopping *very* near to you.

This link worked out the cheapest for car hire for me in April. Make sure you pick Sanford and not Orlando Airport (code for Sanford is SFB)!!!!!!!

Oh, and if you do book car hire yourself do it ASAP - prices go up the closer you get to the holiday.

Well the question 'will the plane be full of screaming kids?'' was asked in post #18 above. Hence the (joking) reply. What kind of idiot fails to read the preceding posts?

Further what kind of idiot thinks a December fllght will have the same mix of passengers as the summer holiday season flights?

BTW I've flown to Sanford on holiday flights once or twice a year since 2005 so have a certain experience of all this.

Cold, FLO RIDA is a rubbish artist.

your answer was not 'joking'.
April is not in Summer.

And I can walk to my local corner local shop in 5 minutes but if I walk slowly it will take longer... talk about pointing out the obvious...

Those flights are due to land at 2.00pm local time so, barring flight delays, 1 hour to get through the airport and 1 hour to drive keeps you nicely out of rush hour.

And although it would take longer in rush hour, as per my previous post the 417 is a good bet as it doesn't get that busy being a toll road - even in rush hour you would likely only hit traffic for the last leg which would only add a few minutes on.

Again, as per my previous post, at rush hour the I4 will be jammed and best avoided.

Driving in Florida is a piece of cake.

Make sure you get your international driver's permit before you go just in case they haven't got round to amending the daft idea that became law in January

No you don't... you need about £700 (or possibly £500)
Last year I spent £240 on 10 day Disney pass + 14 day Universal pass .. then £450 spending money (ate out twice a day + went shopping.

You could even do it for about £500 in total if you bought food from the supermarket and didn't buy designer handbags and shoes

Excellent, thanks, much appreciated!:)

Sanford is a good airport yes a drive and loads of tolls but hey ! Hotel - mmm PASS its a load of crap tbh but I guess your never there anyway. 15kg - not enough for USA -You need 20kg at least with the outlets as most people shop till they drop. Ive done Orlando 4 times I drive is a good location. Personally I would go with flights and a villa

I've been looking for months for flights alone and couldn't get anything near this price, I would pay this for flight only. Went to Vegas at Easter last year with Thomas Cook and the flight was fine, so I would defo do it to Florida. If screaming kids/noise bothers you, not sure I would go to the USA during what is their busiest holiday time (spring break).

In terms of spending, I've done the parks so that's not the issue......,its the lure of THE best outlet shopping. Where else are you going to get Ralph Lauren Polos for under a tenner and converse for £20. The 15kg luggage could be your issue if you like to shop. Suggest you check hotel has a laundry room (most do) and only take a couple of shorts/tops/undies and wash them or, as is more likely - buy more.

I used to live there and rush hour started about 3pm when the kids get out of school. On I-4 between Sept-May during non rush hour you have snow birds doing 40 and slamming on their brakes in the fast lane and UCF students doing 80 in all lanes. It's not an easy drive. Luckily April is early in the year for the storms because you will get people just stopping on the highways.
However I love Florida and this is a great price.
