Who do you book a disney/universal holiday with? and why? (Disney, Virgin, Charter, British Airways, Expedia). And any thoughts on what you reccomend we do please.
Last time we went to Florida our flights were a present from DIL’s, and I booked our week at the Poly with Disney directly, it was the best deal I could find as we got 2 nights free. This time we will be in Orlando 14-16 nights leading up to Easter 2019, and we’ll be visiting, WDW, Universal, and Seaworld. We don’t want to hire a car, and plan to stay at 2-4 different hotels.
My research so far
Holiday Hypermarket - Flies into Sanford and you can only choose 1 hotel.
Virgin - Does everything you want but I know I can find a better price.
Charter - They’ve given me various quotes which I don’t think I can beat, but if I don’t book now and wait until May when other flights open up and Disney has free dining offers the price will have gone up.
Disney - As next years prices aren’t known I can ony guess. If we only want to stay 5 nights at the AKL then free dining is a good deal, but if we can stay 7, then we get 2 nights free and that saving is about the same as the DDP offer.
British Airways holiday - If you’ve paid the high flight costs then they do give you a decent discount on the hotels. But again I’m only able to look at this years prices. We have a free upgrade voucher and I think there’s a good chance we’ll be given another one in 6 months time. That would be enough to upgrade us all for the flight back.
Expedia - Seems like it could be my cheapest option, at least for hotels. Direct flights seem to be as expensive as everywhere else.
Thomas Cook flights - These could be cheaper flights based on this years prices.
DVC Rental - Last time I ruled it out as too risky, but research has led me to belive it isn’t.
Avios points - We don’t have enough to be worth putting towards flights or the dulux hotels, but a possibly a good idea for a few nights at either The Swan or Renaissance.
We’d really like direct flights, but I have been weighing up the possible savings of a stop over. Do you always fly direct?
