great deal !
when they say family of 4 can for adults go or does it have to be 2 adults 2 kids

I think 4 adults would work just the same, although that would be sharing the same room to get the lowest price.

That is just insanely good value. If there's anything like this for my week-off in July, we're going to be all over it like a spider monkey.

But judging by Tripadvisor, I wouldn't stay at the Ramada Maingate West.

There are many other hotels for a fraction more - but if price is your key factor and you're in the mindset of 'I'm hardly going to be in the room in Orlando!' then it's hard to beat!

also try same holidays/dates through Cosmos as sometimes they work out cheaper!

Any suggestions?

Reviews say you have to pay an extra $15 a night 'resort fee'

Just brilliant

Any suggestions?



The Rosen Shingle Creek is the best on the list by a long way. Far nicer than a lot that are more expensive.

Really want to take the kids to Florida, but as the wife and I are both teachers, then it's Spain again I'm afraid!

Great deal. I jet off over there for 2 weeks on monday though :-)

Ramada Maingate West - couldn't access wifi for 50% of the stay as it doesn't have a good capacity, when the hotel is half full it can't cope.

It's also great if you want half of your stuff ruined due to a leak in the ceiling and don't care about a good nights sleep. Very old and noisy air conditioning and you can hear the rooms around you open and close their doors at stupid hours. Obviously avoidable if you take earplugs.

Also don't expect bed linen to be changed - ours wasn't for 8 days until I complained and be prepared for dust build up. In the 14 days the room was never once cleaned properly.

Other than that, location is good especially for Disney!

Oh and don't eat in the restaurant there unless you want to get wet. They have a pool in the main area and no ventilation to get rid of the condensation so it builds up and drips on you continuously. Always fun when you're trying to eat their 'complementary free breakfast buffet' as there 'sorry' for a leak in the ceiling.

Also if you go on the 'its only a room and we won't be there much' we was like that but it was a joke. We even came back once to our room door being left open by 'housekeeping' who came to do nothing but replenish towels and toilet roll. I really would not recommend this hotel.

The prices don't stay like these if your looking for kids summer holidays

Would love to go as a bargain but its just me and my son so would have to pay double also i find you can get and stay in Florida for a good price but park tickets will cost alot. Does anyone know any wats round getting good deal in park tickets?

Did you leave a tip for the cleaners on the side?

Hey, I wouldn't worry about the room, this price is better than a flight only deal!

I'm out here now about to spend £100 on car hire, tempted to get this and stay another couple of weeks haha.

It shouldnt cost double. In fact, it should be more or less the same price if you are sharing the room I'll have a search for park tickets today.

I've been looking into the Theme Park Tickets and this is what I've found so far:
Disney Tickets = Very Expensive. The cheapest way to do Disney if you know you'll be going again in the future is to Buy a 10 day non expiry ticket from the likes of undercovertourist.co.uk or others out there and for 2 adults & 2 children this wil cost around £1700!! But if you use each day to its full capacity, ie get there very early and park hop for as long as you can manage it, then you get value for your money. I've done it this way in the past and its possible to go to 3-4 parks in a day.

americanattractions.co.uk at the moment are doing a 4 park pass to SeaWorld/Aquatica/Busch and LEGOLAND for £98 each and adult, and also a Universal Pass for about the same money. Both of these passes are valid for 14 days from first use for unlimited entry into those parks. In my opinion these two tickets are excellent value for florida!

Hope this helps

If it's your first visit you probably won't need to park hop so getting 7 day 'Magic Your Way' tickets could be an option about £90 cheaper than ulimates ,these give you 7 park days at Disney over a 14 day period but you can only visit one park a day but can leave and re enter the same park,with the £90 saving you can buy Universal 14 day 2 park tickets or the Seaworld/Busch/Aquatica tickets previously mentioned.

Looks like I need to find myself a wife and two kids...


Match.com here I come!

If you have flexibility, then companies such as Monarch seem to be MUCH cheaper nearer the time.

If you just change the search options to Manchester, you can for example, find two weeks departing 7th June for family of four for £388 per person.

I've flown with Monarch before many times, including to Sanford. They were perfectly fine and I'd personally rank them above Thomas Cook and on par with Thomson. They're all much of the same.

Hotels - there are many others listed, at just a few pounds more. The hotel in the deal is merely the lowest price.

Monarch's not bad, bottom line is at £331 including (budget) hotel its a great deal. If you wanted you could ditch the hotel completely and rent a nice 3-bebroom villa with Pool for £400pw.

Disney tickets are expensive and there's not really a way around that. Prices are structured penalising people who only want to go for a few days, hence a 2 week pass is the same price as a one-week - and thats typically around £1000 for a family of four. Personally I wouldnt bother with the "non expiry" tickets - IMO the additional cost they add for not expiring makes them pointless.

Universal tickets are much cheaper £430 for a family of 4 for 2 weeks - but then Disney knows they still have the "edge" over them (although the gap is narrowing with Harry Potter stage 2 opening next summer) plus have 4 parks vs Universal's 2.

We prefer the length of stay passes as they tend to make you visit the parks more frequently, but for less time than the "magic your way" passes (which have a specific number of days loaded onto them). I've heard so man stories of families staying in parks all day - just so they feel theyre getting their moneys worth! IMO its better to go to a park, spend a few hours and then go back to your hotel/villa for a swim and a cold beer!

Great price.

Last year for 2 weeks we paid £1200 each (2 of us) for 14nights, this included flights, hotel, car hire, 2 flex ticket pluses with Virgin. About the going rate as we booked a year in advance,and worth the money with the bonuses from Virgin we got plus their service was exceptional

Great price but after past experiences I said I'd never fly Monarch again.

I gave them one more chance the last time I said that and the flight was delayed 6 hours due to a "fault with the captain's seat" so they'll never get a penny off me again!

The price changes to £1,324.00 as soon as you go to the next page in the booking process.

Great to see this featured over at HolidayPirates and thanks for the nod! Enjoy Orlando those that booked and thanks for the heat!

We flew with Monarch to Sanford last year and couldn't fault them. Why are people worried about the hotel ??? Don't go there then,book a villa,you won't get flights this cheap alone so book the package then get different accommodation.
Great deal pity we have already booked for next month
Thanks for posting
