There is also the matter of the car rental.

I will need a car at least for the off-site attractions but I do want to take the car and return it on wdw property
so I can use magical express to the airport and the early check in for the flight.

These are things I can not do if I book a few nights on UNIVERSAL property.
I faced the same problems regarding coming in from overseas and splitting up the time on a long vacation. Things I figured out/factored in:

- If you either start or end off-site, you can't use Magical Express for that part.

- If you only want a car for getting to Universal/Sea World, you can always use a Mears shuttle and still stay at Disney. Lots more convenient, lots less headache. If you are feeling overwhelmed, the less responsibility you have to take with regard to driving etc, the less stress you will have. (That would mean no Universal hotel benefits, though - though we got on fine without them.)

- On a tight budget for a long trip, the value resorts might be the best option. We stayed at the All Stars for less than $100 a night, and while it was a bit cramped (and my son and I shared a bed, leaving the other bed for my daughter) it was fine, since we were at the parks for the most part. At 22 days, that brings your room cost to $2200. Even if you upgrade to a family suite you will still be doing better on your budget.

- You can look at off-site, but a) that means you are back to needing a car, and b) you are out of the Disney bubble. As one adult travelling with two kids and being so far from home, do not over-estimate the comfort of being "safe" with Disney.

Good luck with the planning!

Resort check-in is not available to international visitors, unless you are traveling from Orlando to another US city.



The cost for Contemporary CL room during value season is around $770 a night, so for 22 nights you'd be using more than $16,000 of your vacation budget for room alone. This is not realistic. Have you checked room prices for the time you are staying for the places you think you'd like to stay?



A travel agent can help you by creating a travel plan based on your needs, but they are not a personal assistant.
1. Flights to ISRAEL are connect flight trough New-York.

I heard of Israeli tourists that used their check in the resort for the internal
flight before switching at JFK for their international flight
so I think I won't have problems in that issue.

2. I think you didn't understand my resort list.

These are not 3 resorts that we hesitate which one to choose.

I am actually planning a split stay moving from the value resort
to the moderate and finally the concierge (no more than 5 nights)

To my calculations that's only 11,000 $ and adding flights,
off-site attractions tickets etc. should barely result
to 19,000 $ my total budget.

This is where a TA can be so valuable helping me decrease
these expenses as much as possible.

And one last thing-

I really don't understand how can I save money if
I stay at Universal part of the time.

I plan 8 days off-disney and for that I need the orlando flex ticket plus(
we do plan a visit to Busch Gardens).

I don't see how a stay at the Universal resorts
which cost at least as much as the Disney moderate resort
could actually save me money.

Your response is exactly why I hesitate staying on Universal property.

Only solution I can think of is if my off-Disney part of the trip
will be just in the middle.

This in fact can be accomplished because I do plan a split
stay at more than one resort.

I admit I didn't make the calculations how much can be saved
if I stay at Universal part of the trip.

But I'm thinking getting out of the Disney magic
and also giving up the great moderate resort we so much want
can be just too high price for us to pay.

As regarding to the budget I plan-

I really don't think 19,000$ is too tight for 3 resorts.

I'm going in the low season and will stay no more than 5 nights at
the more expensive resorts(although I would be very
happy to add 1-2 nights to the superb POR royal rooms ).

From what I see on Disney website the difference between the value
and the moderate resort is not that big so I guess with
the right discount and annual pass I intend to buy
I could accomplish my goals.

Eventually it will be easier making all the calculations after I get some quotes
and responses from TAs.

I think part of the concern about your question stems from the fact that you've put your question in the "Official Disney Promotions, Merchandise Sales/Coupons, and More Ways to Save" forum. It looks like your question is "Which TA is going to get me the best price?"

Now that we know differently, I'd like to direct you to the appropriate forums for your more specific questions:

Are you trying to plan your itinerary? (What time of the year should I visit? Which days should I go to which parks? Which days should I visit Universal Studio?) Visit the Itinerary Planning forum.

Are you looking for information about the resorts you've chosen? Or, maybe you'd like some information about staying offsite. Visit the Disney Resorts forum.

I see you've also got some transportation questions. You'll find some advice in the Transportation To, Around and From forum about getting around the Orlando area. And, if you have questions about getting to Orlando, you can ask them there, too.

Speaking from experience, the Annual Pass is going to get you the best rate for your room. You won't be able to stack offers (use both the AP discount AND an advertised offer such as Free Dining) but if you feel you need to research this more, you'll want to head over to the Ticket Talk and Package Parley forum.

You're not there yet, but eventually you'll want to plan your meals so the Disney Restaurants and Quick Service Locations forum will be helpful. Finally, the Theme Park Touring and Strategy forum will help you plan for 22 perfect days. (I'm jealous, by the way.)

1. Yes, with going from resort to resort, it will be easier for you to keep a Disney resort on both ends, so you can have Magical Express both ways.

2. I too misunderstood - I thought it was a "choose one of these three", not "I am staying at all of these three". At that point a value would have given you the best value over 22 days. If you are splitting it, then the total cost becomes much more doable.

3. I like the idea of the different resorts, as far as you experience the various levels of Disney resorts. As you have a long trip, that is more doable. For me, though, the hassle of packing/unpacking at least three times would be a bummer. Plus that loses time at the parks. It's all what you value, though - I couldn't care where we slept, so the resort was pretty much just a place to shower and sleep. If you want to hang around and enjoy the ambiance of the resort, then of course your calculations would be different.

4. I don't know if a $19000 budget is tight. I keyed off the fact that in your earlier post (#19) you called it a modest budget, and since I have NO idea how much it even costs to get to WDW from Israel, I have to take that at face value.

5. Using an annual pass will also get you some sort of discount (not sure how much - I never had an AP). That may make you tend to favour staying at Disney resorts the entire time. You'll have to do the math.

6. Transfers from WDW resort to resort are free, if memory serves (someone correct me if I am wrong). If you move to offsite, expect to take a taxi to and from. It's not a big issue, but it is a budgetary calculation.

Don't stress too much... you'll get there...

does anybody know how to change this?
I think we’re finally getting the big picture here.

Because your current itinerary ideas will require an astonishing amount of work by whatever travel agent you end up choosing, I would recommend checking with only two or three different agencies, the first one I would contact would be the one in your country. If they truly have a Florida-specialist who knows their stuff, they would most likely be your best resource. If they can't provide a TA that knows Florida travel really well, then I would select one of the larger US agencies. I think what you are asking would be very time-consuming for a solo or smaller travel agency, the larger ones may be able to help you without working a single agent doing so much work that they are losing money on your account.
You definitely won’t be able to utilize Disney’s travel agency, because you have portions of your trip that are not Disney-related, and it would make more sense to utilize an agent that can co-ordinate everything for you.

For help here, Brandie is correct, you’re better off sitting down and writing out a list of questions, then asking them in separate topics within the correct forums.

It will also be helpful to get a little better grip on what you are planning if you give us the basics as concisely as possible:

Who you are (who is going, and their ages).
When you are going (if you know actual dates, that is easiest)
What you are planning to do (how many days at WDW, how many days at Universal, how many at Busch, etc)
Where you are wanting to stay (4 days at value, 3 days at mod, 4 days at Concierge-level, etc)

There are many different "right" answers to the questions you’ve asked so far, and it will be easier for us to help you find the right answer for your family if we can concentrate on each question under its own topic.

The one thing that just came to mind is that you might want to contact an Israeli TA with just ONE question. (If you already know the answer, then great...)

Do Israelis get special rates/tickets for WDW?

Note that I am NOT talking about one Disney TA vs another Disney TA. What I mean is in the same way that Brits can get really cheap 14-day tickets (14-day tickets... gasp!) with extra perks, is there an Israeli version of this? (Probably not, the British seem to be the only ones to my knowledge, but you never know...)

If so, then it is probably a given to go with an Israeli TA. The math would probably make it inevitable...

If it's all the same price whether you book in Israel or here, then it's back to the drawing board - but I agree that a Disney Specialist Israeli TA (if such a thing exists) might still be a better way to go, as far as knowing ALL the practicalities of getting from Israel to WDW. (The counter to that, of course, is that if you run into trouble in WDW, your TA is all the way in a different country, in a different time zone.)

Hi Brandie,

First I want to thank you for your recommendations.

I did saw all these great discussion boards and I sure will use them.

Right now my main concern is if it's a good idea to cut my split stay with
a few days on Universal property.

As I mentioned before we much more prefer POR royal rooms but
if we can save a lot of money that way and also enjoy first line priorites
in Universal park(specially with all this Harry Potter fuss) maybe
It's worth taking it to consideration.

Anyhow you really don't need to be jelous about our 22 days trip.

We waited 7 years to get back to Orlando so now that I finally saved
enough money and we have a great private celebration
(my daughter 12th birthday) it's about time!!!
to return to Orlando...and return big time...:RpS_smile:

===============================

Hello again,

My older 15 years daughter is very skilled with packing
and unpacking and she doesn't mind as long as she
gets so much Disney atmosphere:RpS_wink:

So for us a split stay isn't really a problem.

However giving up POR for a Universal resort with
all the respect to the luxurious Universal resorts...this creates a major dillema!!!

Of course there is also a solution of splitting four resorts(AOA,POR,UNIVERSAL,CONT)...
and spending 5-6 nights at each resort but I think this solution exceeds the budget
I planned(after all...Universal resorts are not that cheap).

It's true a trip to Orlando focuses mainly on the theme parks.

However,this is our second big trip to Orlando and this
time enjoying resorts and Disney atmosphere
is not alot less important than visiting the parks(we even
plan 2 days dedicated to enjoying our resorts and visiting
other Disney resorts).

A flight ticket from Israel to Orland costs about 1300$ a person.

If you add this to calculations I'm sure you'll see not much money
is left for souvenirs,dininig etc and that's why I wrote my budget
is modest for a trip like this.

It's true there are a lot of great table service restaurants on Disney property
but if we don't get a free dining plan we will probably settle for only
1-2 character/table meal and eat mostly in quick service counters.

My biggest comfort is that even if we don't get the chance of enjoying to many
dining experiances we still have the pamper of the concierge at the Contemporary resort.

I think this will be a great dessert to a great trip.:RpS_smile:

=============================

I will be happy to answer all the questions you wrote:

1. 3 persons are going to the trip - me and my 2 daughters(ages 16 and 12 at the time of travel).

2. I plan the vacation on holidays jewish season next year beacasue
that's the time my daughters have almost 3 weeks vacation.

I plan to land in Orlando on the 25th September 2014 and leaving back to ISRAEL
on the evening of the 16 October 2014.

3. I plan 14 days in wdw and 8 days other orlando attractions devided as follows:

4 MK
3 EPCOT
2.5 IOA
1.5 UNIVERSAL
1 SW
1 BG
1 AQ
1 BLIZZARD
1 INTERNATIONAL DRIVE
1 AK
1 DS
2 free days at Disney resorts

I intend to also make use of EMH whenever
we will have the time and strength:RpS_razz:

4. The resorts we want are AOA(little mermaid),POR(royal rooms garden view),CONTEMPORARY(concierge ATRIUM 12 FLOOR MK view) going from
the value to moderate and leaving 5 nights at disney Contemporary concierge
for the grand finale.

to save money we are willing to spend 11 nights at AOA and only 5 each at the other resorts
but the differnce between AOA and POR is not that big so if
it will be posiible to take off 1-2 nights from AOA and add them to POR
of course this would be better.

I'm not sure I understand how to split my answers to different boards so I wrote them here.

I will be more than happy to get any good advices\tips.

=================

Right now I tend to start with the bigger fish and leave the Israeli TA for last.

It seems only 2 people run the Israeli TA and I'm not sure they can handle such big and complicated
request as mine.

It does makes more sense to start with big TA like Dreams Unlimited and Small world vacations
and even if nobody there has experiance working with an Israeli tourist
I think I can manage alone booking my flights.

There's someone working with me who flys to his daughter in JACKSON Wyoming almost
twice a year and knows everything about flight tickets from ISRAEL.

Most important is having a very high skilled TA that can deal with all my request and
complicated vacation and for this I will need the big ADVP.

3. I plan 14 days in wdw and 8 days other orlando attractions devided as follows:

1.5 UNIVERSAL
1 SW
1 BG
1 AQ
1 BLIZZARD
1 INTERNATIONAL DRIVE
1 AK
1 DS
2 free days at Disney resorts
By my count, that is 10 days in WDW parks altogether (4 MK, 3 EP, 1 AK, 1 DS, 1 Blizzard).

If you can "bunch" those 10 days with a 14-day span (regular tickets are good for 14 days from first use), you can get away with a 10 day without park hopper (since I see no split days), at least for your kids. You can add the water park option, but I think for one day at BB a separate BB ticket might be better (not sure about BB stand-alone prices).

You might want to get the AP for yourself if it gives you good room discounts, but you should be able to save over $300 per child on tickets.

That's how we did it - SeaWorld & Universal parks first, then WDW all in a row.

Just a thought, but it might save you a nice chunk of money....

I understand. My point is that only an Israeli TA might know if there are country-specific discounts, so you might want to confirm that first.

Once there is no such thing, it's a level playing field.

You are much better off asking ONE question per post and putting it in the correct forum, than putting multiple questions in every post. I'd move on from this thread, and do as Brandie requested.

And-- I 'd be very sure about eating nothing but CS for 22 days. I'm not a foodie by any stretch, but no way even I could do that.

It seems to me that you really haven't actually looked at prices on your own yet when you talk about a modest budget. I just crunched a couple of numbers. Staying at just POR Royal Room Garden View (not even the least expensive of the Royal Rooms) and then moving to the Contemporary for your last days....with budgeting $1500 per flight (figured I might as well pad that....just in case) and $700 for Annual Passes (again....padding).....you end up with $3600 left to spend. Even with tickets to all of your other attractions....that works out to at least $2500 spending money which is a total of $113 per day that you will have to spend on food and souvenirs.

Starting your trip on Sept 25th and just going with a Royal Room....chances are very high that you will get the Free Dining for that portion of your trip. If you start at AoA, the Little Mermaid Rooms have not had any kind of a discount available to them since they very first opened......so staying there means that you will not get any discounts and could completely miss Free Dining since you are talking about moving to a new location at a time that has been blocked out of Free Dining for a few years now. So.....if you get the free dining....then you most definitely won't be spending $113 per day on food for those days you are staying at POR. The one glitch there is that the Free Dining does have a 14 day cut off.....so....actually doing 14 days at POR, then a few days over at Universal and then returning for your Contemporary Stay will not only be easily possible....it would be a great way to insure that free dining. Of course.....ultimately it is your choice but honestly....if I were looking at saving money by staying in a Value Resort.....I'd pick one of the Values that you can actually expect a discount out and not one that you can pretty well guarantee will NOT have any kind of a discount.

======================

Here's the thing,

I would really want to be able to use EMH even if I visit an off-site park that day.

I know Universal and sea world usually close at about 6-7 max during the low season
so I will have time to get back to MK or EPCOT for some EMH the same evening.

This is where hopper ticket or annual pass comes very handy.

I do agree I don't need the water park option if I only plan one day for Blizzrad.

As I mentioned earlier there are pros&cons dividing the trip to 2 parts(
off-site and on-site).

For me the major reason not going alone with this option is I will have
to give up POR and fantastic charm of the royal princess rooms.:RpS_sad:

Peanut butter is yummy.
I would really want to be able to use EMH even if I visit an off-site park that day.
You may want to rethink this.
EMH parks are usually NOT recommended- they will always be the most crowded park.

And not sure if anyone mentioned this above but if you are using AP for a room discount- then you will not be able to also get Free Dining.
Free Dining is a pkg and tickets must be included with your pkg to get the Free Dining (AP does not count).

I think after a few weeks in a hotel room, a condo with bedrooms, more than one bathroom, and a full kitchen would have some pretty fantastic charm to me.

Wow,

Your plan not only makes sense,it also sounds practical assuming I will get the free dininig plan.

However if this will not be the case or the dates will not fit exactlly (Sorry,I'm really not flexible
on the matter of changing my vacation dates) I could end up with nothing
because there won't be any little mermaid rooms left next summer when free dining plan will be announced
and also I will get a charge penalty from Disney to having changed my resort from moderate to value.

This is my only concern!!!

If there won't be free dining plan I will not be able to afford staying 10 days at POR and then UNIVERSAL resort.

Also my daughters are stucked on AOA maybe even more than POR.

It won't be easy convincing them...I sure will need a good argument(like a lot more money for souvenirs:RpS_wink:)
