Good morning liners, I currently have a trip booked for Sept 6-15 at POP preferred with a 10 day PH. Total price for package with resort, tickets and MM is about 3900. Hoping for a free dining promotion during this time and are planning to go the MNSSHP. We are a family of 4 DH, myself, DS (12) and DD (4).
I got a quote from MVT for 5 different deluxe resorts and would need to change my dates from August 30th- Sept 8th. Here are the prices…
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort – Standard View - $2207.16
Disney’s Boardwalk Inn – Standard View - $2521.17
Disney’s Beach Club Resort – Standard View - $2541.42
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort – Standard View - $2622.42
Disney’s Contemporary Resort – Standard View - $2703.42
Here is my dilemma. If I change the trip, we would have to give up the party and I would have to purchase my tickets from an outside vendor since MVT only sells up to 8 days tickets. We have never stayed at a deluxe resort and the prices quoted would make it possible for us to do so. Crowd levels are much higher for the first few days if we switch to end of August because of Labor Day weekend. It is my understanding that if we got with MVT if a free dining promotion comes out we wouldn’t qualify, is that correct?
We plan 3 days for MK, 2 1/2 for EP, 2 for HS and 2 for AK. They are not all full days as we will spend time at the pool since it will be hot.
I’m just looking for insight and advice on the resorts I was quoted for and if it is worth it the change to stay at a deluxe resort vs. POP and give up the halloween party and free dining.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
