My husband and I are going to Disney World together for the first time in November 2013 for our 5th anniversary. (its really in December but we thought that'd be a terrible time to go). We are extremely frugal and home bodies so this is a huge deal for us. We want to make sure we don't make any stupid decisions and get the best value. I'd appreciate advice.
We are planning to go November 10-17. Arriving evening of the 10th, leaving 17th morning. We are staying at a value resort and getting 5 tickets. One day will be spent at downtown Disney. We have done tons of research on the dining plans and have decided in order to avoid the stress of food costs, we are going with the dining plan that includes 1 sit-down, 1 cs and 1 snack. (we would constantly be worrying about not spending too much, not because we can't afford it but because we can't relax with money.. This way we can just relax and get whatever we want, even if it's an expensive item). With flights our package is about 2600-something.
Do you think our package seems fair? Our plane tickets makeup $520 of that. Any advice?
Also, I am wondering why there seems to be 2 different ways to book a package vacation on disneys website. I think I read that they are transitioning to a new booking method and so perhaps they aren't done yet and I saw the old and new version. Also, what is "magic your way"? Is that somehow different than another Disney package or is that what they are all called?
