I'm looking to do this without a travel agent, it's just me and my gf going. Mid October is when we plan on going. Probably for 4 days but only 3 nights.
I know some specifics of what i'd like to do/stay.
I definitely want to stay in the Art of Animation Little Mermaid Room.
But i need help in figuring out meals and events/shows.
Do the fireworks and other shows at night etc. cost extra? Will the Halloween festivities cost extra?
I'm willing to pay extra for these, i just need to be able to plan on them.
What is the best route to take for eating? Should i get a meal plan or should i wing it? Just get meals out of pocket when hungry?
I'm looking to go all over the park, should i get a park hopper? What does a basic ticket not allow me that a hopper would?
I'm brand new to the parks so any help with these topics or anything else you think i should know would be very helpful!
