    What is the best package deal for 4 children and myself? I want to plan on coming June of 2018...I'm going to start saving for it, so I would like to know prices.

    Hi Randi,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Wow - I know four children that are going to be THRILLED to go to the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    While we do not price vacations, I can give you some helpful tips to find the best package for your group. I always start by checking Special Offers on the Walt Disney World Resort website. Then, I check prices on the Walt Disney World website for the specific dates of my visit. I typically try at least three different weeks to see how a change in dates will affect the price. I include theme park tickets and a dining plan in my pricing. But I always make note of the total price with and without the dining plan.

    We have done the Disney Dining Plan and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. The Disney Dining Plan has always been more affordable for us, but we prefer the additional meals and flexibility of the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. Even if you do not purchase a dining plan, pricing the dining plan will give you a reasonable idea of how much food could cost. With four children, I would argue that the resort refillable mugs alone could make a dining plan worth it for you. With these mugs, you all would get unlimited drink refills at designated locations at the resort.

    Randi, I have also booked trips through a travel agent if they offer the best price or other perks. Just be sure to understand the cancellation policy with whichever booking method you choose. I strongly suggest that you book as soon as possible, however. We typically put down a deposit to hold our reservation. Once that deposit is made, we link our resort hotel confirmation number to My Disney Experience account and, at 180 days prior to the trip, we start making dining reservations. For a group your size, I strongly suggest dining reservations. Also make your Fast Pass+ selections - these are a must!
