    last minute trip planning o_o

    normally I'd plan this stuff out way ahead after being part of these forums for so long but yeah

    basicaly we found out a week ago my mom's pancreatic cancer has motasticized and she's got a few months left to live :\ we were planning a WDW trip for when I'd graduate college in a few years but now my dad wants to see if we can't head out this coming sunday for one final family trip before she gets too sick to do much :\

    anywho I'm trying to research stuff as fast as possible now to see what I can do but I'd like to know if you guys had any advice on hotels/services that would make our trip easier

    I'm not even sure how much we can afford so yeah any advice is welcome though

    Hey Jspider,

    If you really need urgent help you can call us here at Orlando Fun Tickets, and we can give you ticket information along with park information. All of our Customer Service Stars know a lot about Disney and the area, and will help the best they can!

    Just give us a call at 1-866-225-4712

    We have been pretty busy in the office, but you can always be asked to be transfered to me, and I will be more than happy to help you out with any information you might need!

    Sorry about your mom, but I do really hope that this helps!

    Eric

    I am very, very sorry about your mom. This is a beautiful time to come to Disney, though you may have to stay offsite (or perhaps the Swan and Dolphin, or Downtown Disney hotels). The Hilton is nice, and gets Early Entry/late night.

    It probably would help to set up a quick budget, and know what you want to do (just parks, hopping, etc.?) Dining is going to be a bit of a bear right now, but there are some restaurants you'll be able to get to onsite.

    If you have any questions about the parks, or anything - definitely let me know, and Eric also (at Orlando Fun Tickets) is a really good guy, and many of the people there have worked for Disney. I know they help guests even if you don't buy anything from them, which I think is great. Disney itself is mostly sales oriented now, I know even when I worked for DRC, that they always told me I talked too much on the phone. I wanted to help everyone plan!

    Again - I'm SOOO sorry about your mom. I hope that you can create some really wonderful memories.

    Oh - I've done travel planning and such in the past also, so I'm fairly well equipped to answer questions (though I'm too chatty to ever work at DRC again).
