The key to finding the best Orlando vacation deal is to do as much research as possible. Many people research for months to plan their Disney Vacations. 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.

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 Walt 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 Walt Disney World Vacation tickets in advance. Prices go up twice a year, so it is best to lock in the lowest price today!

Plan your days at Walt Disney World or Universal Studios 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.
