Walt Disney World Vacation Packages
Oh, and let's not forget there are land and sea options, with a Disney cruise!
Decisions, decisions. Let's take a look at some Disney package ideas.
Disney World Resort Package
Booking a Disney World resort package has some definite benefits. When you stay at a Disney resort hotel, you get free transportation around the Disney area, as well as extra magic hours at the theme parks. (Extra magic hours are when the theme parks open early or late, but only for resort guests.)
A Disney World resort package that includes the Disney meal plan is a great buy. Yes, food is rather expensive at Disney, although there are some ways (like the meal plan) to lessen the costs .
One of the biggest advantage to staying at a Disney hotel or resort is location, location, location! However, another advantage is excellent service and friendly staff.
A Walt Disney World vacation package where you stay at a non-Disney hotel or resort is great if you want to get out and see Orlando while on vacation. You also have a larger range of hotels, from budget to luxury.
The caveat is that you will probably need to rent a vehicle to get around. Some of the hotels offer shuttle services to the parks, but personally, I don't like being tied into a shuttle schedule. However, there is something to be said for shuttles -- Orlando traffic can be busy at times!
Disney World Ticket Package
The basic Walt Disney World vacation package is one that includes both Disney World theme park tickets as well as a place to stay. A three day, two night hotel stay along with a day at one of the theme parks is a popular option.
But if you can manage it, the 7-day Disney World ticket package and vacation is a great deal. The rates can be surprisingly low, because the more days you stay, the less cost per day. If you opt to stay at a Disney resort hotel, you can get even better rates.
Walt Disney World Vacation Packages -- Magic Your Way!
There are five categories of Walt Disney World vacation packages; they are:
Also keep in mind that everyone in the room must be on the same package and ticket options. You can also upgrade just about everything, from a fancier resort to a park hopper pass and more!
Theme Park and Cruise
I jokingly call this the "surf and turf" vacation package. It's an excellent idea -- tour the theme parks for a few days, then take another few days to relax on a cruise to the Bahamas or the Caribbean.
The most popular package is for a 4-day 3-night theme park stay combined with a 3-day 4-night Bahamas cruise. You'll leave from Port Canaveral and take the cruise ship to Nassau and also to Castaway Cay, the Walt Disney World private island.
There are also 7-day cruises, to either the eastern or western Caribbean -- a real escape from everyday life!
One of the great things about a cruise vacation is that your meals are included with the cruise. Sure, you'll have to pay extra for alcoholic beverages and sodas, but the meals are free (and frequent). You will never go hungry on a cruise!
