Nearly £8500 for 14 nights in an “average” room, with park tickets.
Here's some info I posted on one of the occasional silly cheap (normally during school) trips

Stay in the hotel on i-drive, use the good transport links, eat out of parks and with 2 weeks (unless this is a one off trip) don't try and fit in everything (I would suggest choose Universal for older kids OR Disney for younger kids)
£1300 flights and hotel
£1500 disney OR £1000 Universal (though you might want to add extras)
£1000 spending (food etc..)

Search on here and there's occasional good deals like this in I-Drive (such as Rosen Inn) which include hotel rooms. Very good cheap option if the dates work for you
hotukdeals.com/dea…155

Based on my 2A + 2C yearly visits

Flights:
Depends on when you're flying, school holidays £400 pp is possible and a bargain, £500 - £600 pp is a common price
During school times (even partly) you can find the odd £200 - £250 flights but these can be late notice and with an expensive holiday like this you really is an advantage to book a long time in advance (Disney top restaurants take bookings 6 months in advance and do get fully booked quickly, fastpasses need to be booked 2 months in advance ideally)

It depends what you prefer but we always hire a car and stay 20-30 mins drive South of Disney (Kissimee or just off Highway27 which is at the end of the 192, a main road with restaurants and shops etc directly at the bottom of world drive, Disneys main road). Once we stayed in a villa we've never wanted anything else, my kids love swimming and messing about in the pool so if you are likely to be in the pool playing (active) a lot then having a pool to yourselves on the doorstep is a must

Villa's can be found for about £400 per week (We've had a 5 beroom one twice and a 3 bedroom one twice for that, less before brexit) all with a pool
homeaway.co.uk

Being that far away you'll need a car (if you're happy to drive)
I've always found tripwheels.com to offer the best prices but search around
The earlier you book the cheaper it'll be in general
Family car with insurance should be about £150 per week
We normally go for an SUV (Kia Sportage and jeeps have been great and big enough to be comfortable) which will be slightly more - £200 per week

We always stay for just over 3 weeks so we have a day to settle as it's always afternoon/evening when you arrive

We get the 3 week Disney tickets for £1600 which is enough to spread it out and still not really do eveything

The 4 Disney parks:
Magic kingdom = Lots of walking, such a nice atmosphere, my suggestion is to choose either morning and get as much as you can done and leave for/around lunch (use fastpasses as late as possible) OR come in the afternoon, use fastpasses and stay until the evening to watch the fireworks/projection show on the castle, you really must do this at least once but it gets so crazy busy, every day, there are no quiet days for this - ever. We prefer early mornings then back to the villa for a swim in the afternoons mostly

Animal Kingdom = We love this park, with the shows (Lion king/Nemo) it's easy to spend the whole day here. Get fastpasses for Flights of passage or give it a miss, the queues are always 2+ hours long

Hollywood studios = in the middle of a lot of change, good stuff to do here still but there's 2 really good things to watch at the end of the day so I'd suggest an afternoon/evening works well. Unless the timings work and you can watch both on the same night you'll need to choose either "Fantasmic" or the star wars fireworks show. Both are a must (as well as lots of good rides), Fantasmic takes 30 minutes and it's a further 15 minute (at least) walk to see the fireworks show. Plan to come back for the other if missed

Epcot = People love this place, we're not AS keen. An afternoon and watch the show (which is currently changing but will still be a fireworks type show over the "world showcase lake") is enough for us. There's lots of food choices if you're budget allows

Note: FASTPASSES (quick queue system) ARE FREE
If you're off-site (not in a disney hotel) you can book them online 30 days in advance, on-site 60 days in advance
For this reason - if your budget allows, we buy our first night in a cheap Disney room then go to the villa after. £120 odd will get you the 60 days advance booking which is key to get the 1 hour slots for the biggest rides

This is also where this deal comes in, if you wanted to spend a little more the minimum stay for the free Disney Dining is 5 days. You can make this work a number of ways depending on what extra you want to spend and if you have anything on your wish list
You could get 5 days in a value (All Stars sports etc...) with food (1 meal per day, but meals are huge and easily workable, even use it for something a little special like getting a "Be our Guest" restaurant booking (included in Quick Service, QS) = £670, I don't think value resorts get you the $200 and you have to also get your Disney tickets from them at time of booking, you will get other extras like free magicbands though
A Moderate resort would be roughly £1000+ but with the $200, and more QS food
Deluxe, such as Animal Kingdom lodge overlooking "the savanna" would be £1800+ odd (just for the 5 days) but would get you full dining plan (table service, some real nice meals to be booked with these)

Any of the above dining extra's are "credits" they put on your magicbands which you can use anytime, they do expire on your last day at the resort though (you can't use them a week later)
This option obviously removes 5 days offsite cost

Read thedibb or similar for advice on what the rides are and which to use fastpasses for. I personally love easywdw.com for this kind of advice and park maps that are easier to get your head around

We also love a good game of crazy golf, they're good courses and included free on the ultimate tickets
Both the water parks also provide a good day break and are also included

I won't talk about the other parks, Universal/seaworld/kennedy/gatorland or any of the others as we've been to them all a lot but not more recently and I'm sure others would be able to give better advice than me

It's easy for all the extra's to add up

We normally end up around £7500 (up about £1k since the pound dropped in 2016 and prices rising crazy %)
Here's our last breakdown:

Flights (we've done Virgin/BA/Norwegian, all fine) - £1600
SUV hire (£550)
Night in Disney (£120)
3 weeks in Villa (£1250)
3 week Disney ticket (£1600)
Gatorland/Seaworld/Busch tickets (£400)
Spending/food including some nice steak house and Disney be our guest meals etc... (£2000)

I've just started looking into maybe uber or lyft every journey instead of getting a car. It's getting close to being cheaper (I think, that's what I'm going to look at. I guess it will depend how many longer journeys you will make)

Just to add, there are good savings to be had by flying into Tampa and driving over to Orlando, about 1/1.5 hour drive
We renewed our wedding vows back in 2014 on Mediera Beach, St Petersburg so stay over there sometimes for the first night, it's quite a fun drive from there over some of the pretty cool long bridges
We've also done Fort Lauderdale airport and Miami (and a mixture of in from one, out from the other) which can get you good savings, basically, it opens up options = more chance of a good priced flight. We've also stayed on the beach front hotels for not much ($80 pn for all 4 of us) then driven up to Orlando the next day. Roughtly 3.5/4 hour drive, very straight forward, 1 long road pretty much most of the way. Chuck it on maps on your phone and select avoid tolls (as it doesn't add much but does remove hassle and cost of the stupid sunpass thing), it is quite funny when the instruction is "stay on this road for 192miles!!!"

As for the phone data, we always get a three PAYG sim with "feel at home" data and for £10 you get 1G data (plus uk text and calls) for 30 days. Activate it before you leave, turn it on when you get through customs, done. PAYG Sims with £10 credit are often available on ebay for £4ish. I think some phone networks are also starting to do the "feel at home" style thing including USA so worth checking, you might already have it?
Bear in mind, this is a UK Sim and package, you can't use it to call US numbers (such as emergency breakdowns or to make reservations etc... we've always used the villa phone for local calls)
I find 1G data is plenty, maps only used 80M in the 3 weeks. We get 4 sims so we've all got data jic. I've found that you'll get which ever network it finds first when you turn it on when you get there. For that reason 2 of us normally turn on in the airport (get t-mobile) then the other 2 when we get to the first nights hotel (and get AT&T), I'm sure it's random but it's pretty much always worked that way for us

Only if you tried going on 3 months in advance (or 30 days if you're poor).

Only website fastpasses left now are for disneyland paris, star wars - solo & the jar jar binks fan club

Not even peak summer rates either! Stay off site myself but everyone's different. If money was no object I'd probably stay in Contemporary or Grand Floridian but unfortunately it's not.

Depending on the time of year that's the going rate for a Disney 'deluxe' hotel with 3 meals a day plus 2 snacks and a magic refillable cup.

I find the 'moderate' hotel with 2 meals plus 2 snacks a day the sweet spot for value. Last year at the end of the holiday we still had meals over so I cant image trying to fit 3 meals a day in.

We actually go to Orlando soon...The price for 3 adults staying in Disney’s Deluxe Old Key West for 7 days, with DDP and 14 day park tickets was £2800.
You only get 2 meals a day at deluxe properties...1 QS and 1 TS...3 meals a day, you pay a premium.

I know the poster is staying on site for a fortnight, but £8500 is still waaay to much imo

They must have changed it then, I went last year in kids holidays for 14 nights in a 'moderate' hotel and got 2 QS meals for £5.5K, like I said though it was too much for me and we had credits left over at the end of the hoilisday.

Not sure what you mean by 'on site'? none of the Disney hotels are actually in the theme parks.

Yeah...we have stayed a few times at moderate hotels at Disney...as you say, you get 2 quick service meals a day at moderates.

”On Site” just refers to any Disney hotel, as opposed to staying in a much cheaper hotel not on the Disney property....i.e...Kissimmee area or I-drive.
I booked a couple of months back to stay in the Contemporary Resort, and paid for the dining plan out right. The price of the hotel plus *free* dining plan is now almost £1500 more than I paid

This may be because the Contemporary doesn't have as many rooms as the other resorts, hence as they sell out the prices will increase more noticeably than at other resorts. If someone has a back-to-back price for any moderate and/or value resorts from a few months ago to now, I reckon it'll show a more clear picture. I'd certainly be interested in this information.
Remember folks, you can convert leftover meals into snack credits in some places and get treats/gifts for all your friends back home.

Yes it's cheaper to rent a villa, eat in villa and taking snacks to the parks, I spent under $100 a day for 3 adults and 2 children. However you don't get the full Disney experience or perks like 60 day FP etc.
Disney hotel including tickets and dining plan (and $200 spend) is coming up about £3200 for a moderate hotel for 14 nights.
Villa seems to be about £1500 for 2 weeks, then park tickets alone would be nearly £1500? Staying in villa would need a car hire too.

Disney looking to be the better deal?
I imagined. What is it that you lose in experience if you buy your park tickets separate from this deal and what is 60 day FP?

If you get the quick service dining plan and tickets all in for £3.2k for 2 weeks I'd book it, what time of year is that for? We went for a villa as it was cheaper than 2 hotel rooms in a Disney hotel.

Looks like I messed up, I was on attraction tickets direct and I (wrongly) assumed that tickets were already included in the hotel price... But you add the tickets on the next page. I thought that when you booked a disney hotel then the tickets were already included!

I don’t think you can get this deal and buy park tickets separately.
We stayed on old key West a few years ago, forget price but we have the dining plan package free. Well worth it especially for the table service and got amazing meals. We had some credits left over on our last day and they converted the meals to 3 snacks per meal, this gave us loads of sweets etc to bring back and give family. Tho it was expensive then staying out of Disney the meal plan and gift card made it feel better value and overall probably cheaper with Better food choice. Planning on doing it again for 2020

Ive been checking the prices regularly for the last couple of months to see how it varied. Decided to wait for free dining today and booked a value resort for £990 for 10 days with 1 free meal per day.

Before the free dining came out it was £960 for same time so well worth shooting for free dining.
Ps. Booked through charter travel today. Best quote I’ve had...
