Plan a Disney Vacation, A SeaWorld Vacation Or a Universal Studios Vacation
The key to finding the best
deal on an Orlando vacation is to do as much research as possible. Many
people research for months to plan a Disney Vacation. Here are six keys
you want to do to make sure you are getting the best deal:
- Make sure the company you are booking through or ordering tickets through
is a reputable company. One way to do this is to make sure the company
is a member of the Better Business Bureau and they should have at least
an “A” rating.
- Compare prices- The internet has made this really easy. If you got the
price off of a wholesaler similar to Hotels.com or Orlandovacation.com
compare their prices to the hotels own website. Plan to always pay a premium
for Disney World Tickets.
- Make sure you understand the cancellation policy and penalties should
something come up and you are not able to make it on your vacation.
- Be aware of hidden fees or resort fees. Almost every hotel in the Orlando
area charges a resort fee, and these fees are always going up.
- Plan to buy your Disney World Vacation tickets in advance. Prices go
up twice a year, so it is best to lock in the lowest price today!
- Make it easy on yourself and stay near the attractions that you are
going to be visiting. All three major theme parks have hotels located
near them, and these hotels primarily cater to the guests of those particular
parks. For example, hotels
near Sea World will typically offer free shuttle services to Sea World,
discounted Sea World tickets, and be more knowledgeable about Sea World
than a hotel near Disney World would be.
- Plan your Disney vacation with your kids in mind…this seems like
a no brainer but you would be surprised. If you have little ones that
need a nap, make sure you plan to spend a couple of afternoons at your
hotel so they can get a really good nap. This will save you from having
cranky kids toward the end of your vacation.
