Disney can offer travel packages like no other destination can! You get the package more for convenience than for a discount. If you go with a Disney vaction package you should have a worry free vaction. You get to customize th type of vaction trip you want! You can choose room only reservations, or packages. The packages include tickets, which themselves can be cutomized. They can be one park daily, or hoppers which allow you more freedom, they can include waterparks, or be made to have no expiration! It is up to you!
You also get to decide from more than 20 resort hotels in three catagories: value, moderate, or deluxe. They also offer a dining plan that more than pays for itself. In addition guests that stay on Disney property get added benefits. You get extra park hours and free transporation to and from the airport. You can coose to let Disney book your airfare, or book that yourself. I always book my airfare myself and book the rest of the package through Disney. They also offer trip insurance. It is truly one stop shopping. I think a big selling point is that they only require a 200.00 deposit for packages!! Then you have until 45 days before your arrival to have the package paid off. This offers the flexiblity to make your plans before you are able to pay them off!! I would HIGHLY recommend vacation packages through Disney! FYI* I am a single mother and last year my 7 year old daughter and I went by ourselves. I planned the entire trip with the help of Disney Vactions and we had a blast. So much so that we are going back in December!!
