Where can we find Cheap Disney Vacation Packages?
Dad--We are interested in planning a Walt Disney World trip for our family next year and we want a cheap Disney Vacation Package. Can you help?
There are 6 adults and a baby. We're wondering what the cost would be for a 5 day stay. Can we book through you, or can we use you our consultant??
Prices would need to include airfare, lodging, tickets etc. How long would the quoted amount be good for? When is the low season for WDW??
Thanks, Linda in Texas
Dad's well it's like this ... Answer
In the interest of full disclosure, Linda and her family are long time family friends. In fact they are some of our best friends ever. So, with all that in mind. Join Dad as he shows Linda and family how to plan the PERFECT Walt Disney World Vacation. (Sounds like fun.)
The PERFECT Disney World Vacation - Part One
Let's start with the most obvious question. Can we book through you, or use you as our consultant??
Mmmmm ... Let me think about that one ...
YES, you can and should book with Dad
... and hire him as a consultant. (Dad's going rate is just under $1,000.00 per hour. Just kidding.)
Dad will be happy to help you book your PERFECT Disney World Vacation, but we'll get to that later.
A Cheap Disney World Vacation Package Starts Here
The first thing we have to do to find a cheap Disney World Vacation Package is determine when you want to go. Which, I think, is your last question, but sometimes the last shall be first. (I think I heard that somewhere.)So, the real question is, when is the best time to visit Disney World?
Funny you should ask (yes, sometimes Dad carries on conversations with himself, but that's what makes Dad so unique), Dad wrote a whole page about just that very thing. So, the first thing to do is to read ...
Go ahead. I'll wait. (PS. It will open in a new window so you don't loose your place.)
Glad you're back. Yes, I know, the conclusion leaves a little to be desired, so for Linda's purposes let's delve a little deeper.
Another of Linda's great questions was when is low season at Walt Disney World?
If you want a really cheap Disney World Vacation package, you need to know the answer to this question. So, let's find it.
I usually don't send you to Disney's website because I think it's really hard to find what your looking for on it, so I've looked high and low and found the list of dates for the 2011 Value Season at the Walt Disney World Resorts. (The real reason I'm sending you to Disney's site is there are about 100 dates and I'm too lazy to type them into this answer.)2011 Value Season at Disney World
So, Linda, now it's your turn. The first step on our magical journey to your PERFECT Disney World Vacation is to choose a date. I know it's a long way off, but we prefer to go to at Christmas time.
If you are looking to go ASAP, I'd suggest the January 31 to February 4 date.
So Linda, the balls in your court. When can you and the family go? Let me know and we'll move on to step 2, choosing the PERFECT place to sleep.
PS. You have a question about the price not changing. Once you make your deposit, your price is locked in. Disney doesn't usually change prices during the year once they've been published and the 2011 prices have been published.
Now when it come to airfare that's a whole different story.
Talk to you soon.
