    How much are you looking to spend?

    [SIZE=2]Try Broadwaytravel. I used them this year and i'm going last week of June for 2 weeks, and they were far cheaper than anyone else. This was flying from Manchester.[/SIZE]

    plus tickets for parks etc on top which will probably another couple of hundred

    How many people are going? Will makea difference if it's hotel or villa based.

    I got my park tickets from Ticketmania for the Disney ones, and MercuryTravel for the Universal ones. This was the cheapest for us and worked out around £230 all in for each of us. That gives us total of 5 days at Disney, 4 visits to their water parks, and unlimited 14 day access to Universal, Seaworld and Wet and Wild.

    yeah i cant get them to do a price with out it asking for car hire

    If you book a package don't take the car hire that is supposedly included! You end up paying a fortune for insurance it works out cheaper doing car hire separately

    give tracel city direct a ring they will be happy to help, we are going withthem in april and they seem to be the cheapest around.

    On expedia much depends on the dates and whether the baby gets a seat. You have to mess around with the dates to get the best date.

    Some will have stop overs of a few hours. But you can get BA or Virgin direct for a few quid more if you can change the dates around.

    Try visiting ]thedibb.co.uk loads of great advice and planning information for trips to Orlando

    We have been to Florida twice (04 & 06) both booked through Portland Direct which is basicly flying with Thomson but cutting out the middleman so cheaper than going direct with them.

    If you don't want to drive, we stayed at the best western plaza on Int drive and they supply free shuttle's to universal, seaworld, the main disney transportation centre (where you can get to any disney attraction), also the pickup for Busch Gardens is just over the road so access to all the parks at your doorstep.

    Park tickets we bought from atraction tickets direct which is a very safe site and if you find the tickets cheaper anywhere tell them and 9 times out of 10 the'll price match, i never found them cheaper than ATD anyway.

    It#s a fantastic place and you#ll have a blast

    We went easter 05 for 17 days, booked directed with expedia, flew us airline via washington, and stay at best western movieland for around £2100. Food and park tickets on top.

    Got the 14 day orlanda flex ticket, which gives you 14 days in wetnwild, seaworld, both universal, + busch gardens for the 5 park ticket.

    Think universal is much better than disney for adults/thrill seekers.

    best western movieland is a cheap motel (ie $52 compared to $103 for the plazza), its opposite wet and wild, small supermarket+chemist 2 mins away, and pondrosa+sizzler eat you can eat for £8 just across the road

    Free bus to universal etc, and its the first stop so the bus isn't full. Universal is only a 10-15 minute walk if you miss the bus or want to do you own thing.

    I would also recommend chucky cheeses for people with young children.
