    Hi Michelle!

    Booking a family vacation can be overwhelming especially when trying to get the best possible rates and stay within your budget.

    First, I would suggest that you price out the vacation without airfare. Typically, you can find better airfare rates on your own. Visit www.southwest.com and www.kayak.com to begin.

    2. Visit www.mousesavers.com. The time you invest reading the information on that site will result in significant savings.

    3. Consider consulting an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. They are trained to find you the best rates and offer assistance throughout the planning stages of your WDW vacation. I recommend Mouse Fan Travel, Enchanted Destinations, Small World Vacations and Dreams Unlimited Travel. They offer a service that calling Disney directly will not provide and that is making sure your vacation package reflects any new discounts that are released even after you put down your initial deposit!

    4. Call (407) W-DISNEY - (407) 934-7639 and compare the rates that they give you with the offer that you have online. Print out your offer and tell them the options that you have selected, your vacation dates and inquire as to the fluctuation in price. Perhaps during the phone call a more expensive flight, vacation insurance or pricier ticket option was selected resulting in the price difference.

    Don't hesitate to make sure that you are booking the vacation that works best for your family. If you don't need water park tickets, feel free to decline them. If you want to save money by not park hopping. get the Magic Your Way base ticket.

    Best wishes!
