Other good point is only £100 deposit to book now
This is the best Walt Disney World offer they have. I think it is a brilliant deal if you want to stay onsite
We've just booked today too for Port Orleans Riverside, a beautiful resort, as already said by the time you do the maths it's not bad compared to staying offsite. Something people always miss when pricing up is the cost of parking at the parks which is free if your staying on site, I think it's currently $20 per day so can soon add up if you visit daily.
The memory maker includes ride photos too which is always worth a laugh
looking at doing this. well bring convinced by the better half doing this
Does this include breakfast as well?

Remit - it includes two quick service meals and a snack a day. We used it this year to get lunch and dinner each day, but for our dinner we went to the resort facility and used the side to buy a breakfast item, such as bread or cereal. Hope this helps.

​if it did ID book now
Just what we need, just back and looking at next year. Disney is maybe better for our 6 year old as universals harry potter forbidden journey scared the pants of him and parents nearly threw up.

There is a flights option, but my experience is your cheaper booking your own flights....
Where going in 4 weeks after booking this last year.......
Looks like a good deal and tempting.

Have been a few times with the family before but always stayed off site.

Anyone know what the best transport options are if say I want to travel off site e.g. to shopping malls or Universal? Wondering if I can get away without the need to hire a car?

When do you have to pay the balance?



In the past it has normally been about 8 weeks prior to travel
How do you get the dining plan free?

Uber is probably best mate, there are shuttles but they can be busy and they are not particularly convenient imo

Disney are believed to be looking at resort fees and already introducing paid preferential parking. Even paid magic hours.
If you are going it's a good bundle. The difference between 7 and 14 day passes are only a few dollars.
We were disappointed last year as lots closed or overdue refurb. The weather was also unusually wet. You need the dining plan now as they seem to have upped the food prices over the years to make it seem better value if that makes sense?
just booked for April next year, can't wait!
I checked and flights are not out yet for April/May next year. Do folks book flights after?

Also, this would be the first time bringing young kids of nearly 5 and 2 and a half (next year), are pros/cons to staying in a disney resort versus a villa or gated community? Any recommendtions for a disney hotel?

Thanks
We prefer (as a couple) to book through the US site when the room discounts come up, as we're not big eaters. This is probably the best option for families, though.

Flights for Virgin, BA etc usually appear 11 months prior, you should be able to look at Thomson and Thomas Cook now though if they have availability, be aware Thomson fly into Sanford rather than MCO if you want the magical express transport you'll need MCO airport.

If you stay onsite you can effectively not bother with a car and just use the free site buses,boats etc. Offsite you'll probably want a car to enjoy it fully, but it can be done without providing the hotel provides park buses etc.
Onsite you'll get extra hours in the park, free parking and can charge purchases to your room etc rather than carry cash around.
I would say if you have young kids you'll probably enjoy being in the "Disney bubble" of being onsite more than offsite, they know how to do hospitality well, especially with young kids.

As for fave hotel, we like Port Orleans Riverside, it looks great and is not too in your face Disney as say Pop Century etc. Animal Kingdom is great too if you want to push the boat out - there's nothing like waking up and seeing a Giraffe outside your balcony

I would highly recommend visiting a uk site called "thedibb.co.uk" it answers pretty much anything you'll ever want to know about visiting Disney.

For people booking this, do you know who you might book flights through?

I'm very interested but I'm trying to estimate what the return flight costs would be during the summer holidays (August in particular).

Thanks!

I have never been before, what sort of price am I looking at for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2kids under 9yr old)?
Thanks

Booking at the cheapest time (off peak) , term time the very minimum I would expect would be £3,300 + with flights , accom , car rental , insurance and Disney / universal combo tickets for 14 days. That would be bargain basement for everything

Would depend very much on the time of year you travel , is it likely to be during a school holiday ? Prices for flights can double , accommodation / car hire etc often has low/mid/high price structures too , again depending on the season.

​I just wish they had rooms that didn't cost the earth where the kids beds were at least round the corner/behind a curtain. My kids usually go to bed at 7 and all sleeping on one big hotel room is a total pain in that regard. Or have I missed something?
If you book a deluxe hotel you will receive the Disney Dining plan which includes being able to book character meals. Also this offer usually runs until November, you will lose the $200 though after July.

In bed for 7pm would be quite a shame for a holiday like this , the fireworks / evening displays are out of this world. Could the little ones not sleep in their push chairs whilst you are in the parks during the evening ?
That's what we did with our little ones and funny enough they didn't want to shut their eyes ... even at 9pm ! lol
It is difficult I know when they are young , we were lucky enough to go for 4 weeks so we could have plenty of 'rest' days but if I were doing it again and could only take 2 weeks off work then I'd definitely look at on-site Disney hotels.
You don't want to be wasting any time with car parking , you get early access to the parks and there is plenty of magic for the little ones.

It's a fantastic deal. We are a family of f e and did it last year and had so much credits on the quick service dining plan we didn't have to buy any other meals. We stayed at the riverside resort which is a great place too
Dining plan is coming up as chargable?

Are looking at dates this year, or a blackout date next year such as easter?

Yes you can get some prices now, we booked our flights for July 17 with Thomas Cook Airlines, £640pp return, we could probably have got them cheaper by waiting for a flight sale with Virgin etc later in the year but like to know where we stand and have everything booked so we can budget for it.

Have to search for 'moderate' price hotels for the free dining plan

Couldn't agree more, the Disney shows/fireworks are something else, it would be a crying shame to have your kids in bed during this type of thing

Will this work out cheaper than a package price e.g. Thomson? Looking for last 2 weeks August 2017, most of flights are not out but Thomson are £1000pp and fly to Sandford. The Thomson package is cheaper and still gets the dining plan but no $200. What are flights likely to be in August 17? Decisions.
If we only went for a week, could we sell the remaining week's worth Disney ticket? I went years and years ago and remember buying cheap day tickets from a kiosk somewhere that were the remaining ones of multiple tickets. Can't imagine spending 14 days in Disney, personally!
booked with Thompson, staying at new orleans riverside April 2017, 2ad, 1ch with all of the above except $200 card, (flights, accommodation, transfers, extra space seats,qsdp and tickets for 14 days) £4600! on countdown!
can't see the blockout dates listed anywhere - I'm guessing most of Easter
Flights aren't available yet either and that's the biggy
