Today we are discussing how to quickly and easily book a great Disney vacation. If you have ever been on an “all-inclusive” vacation, you know how easy it all is. You head to your resort, and everything is taken care of for you! Did you know that you can book all inclusive Disney World vacation packages directly from Disney?
Most people are unaware of this fact, and/or they figure that the price is just too high. Today, we’re going to give you the details of how to book this package, and we will show you exactly where to start when booking the vacation of your dreams!
When deciding on a total Disney package, there are three things to decide: the Length of Stay, the resort and your dining package. Let’s go over each one.
How Long Should you Stay at Disney World?
The length of your stay determines the number of tickets that you need. We recommend at least staying four days. However, you might be surprised to know that as you go from 4-10 days, the total cost of the tickets per person, moves very slightly. The cost in staying extra days is usually tied up in your room/dining plan.
Choosing the Resort that is Right For You!
Disney World has three levels of resorts: Value, Moderate and Deluxe. We go over the three levels in further detail in our article Which Disney Resort to Choose. You’ll find that the price varies SIGNIFICANTLY from the value to the deluxe. The good news is that you can get a total package while staying at any of the three resorts.
All three resort types have nice pools, activities for the kids, dining and of course offer free transportation to any of the four Disney World parks.
If you are on a budget and plan to spend most of your time at the parks, than we HIGHLY recommend choosing a value resort. The rooms certainly won’t blow you away, but they are functional and well-themed.
If you enjoy luxurious lodging and if money is not a worry, than the Deluxe resorts are going to blow you away. The Polynesian, Contemporary and Grand Floridian offer complementary monorail service to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, which will make your transportation a breeze. And the theming is excellent!
All-Inclusive Includes Food… Right?
When people think of all-inclusive, they think of food! Fortunately Disney has dining plans that can feed even the hungriest of bellies. Disney has restaurants at all four theme parks and all of their resorts as well. The Disney Dining plan offers you a chance to eat at most of these restaurants, and the costs are bundled into the package that is paid for before you ever leave!
There are buffets, desserts, snacks, foreign foods, hamburgers, hot dogs, and many more options that are sure to fill your belly. Disney Dining guests also get a cup that allows free refills on soda, tea and coffee at their resort.
While the costs of this plan can be high in the summer, Disney traditionally offers a Free dining plan in the fall and occasionally in January-February. This can be a GREAT time to get that all-inclusive vacation package, as it will save you a bundle of money!
