    My family is planning our 1st disney vacation. I just wanted details on what does the packages really cover? Especially the tickets, is the set price for entrance to the park, but extra for the rides and attractions? Also is Mar or Apr better for budget.

    The details of any given vacation package can vary, Kristal, so it's tough to tell you exactly what is included.  When it comes to what is included with park admission, though, it's a bit easier to sum that up.  Unlike many theme parks across the country that charge separately for in-park entertainment options, Disney parks include most everything with park admission.  Most attractions and entertainment options are included.  There are specialty tours that are priced separately.  You'll also find that carnival-type games are available for additional cost.  Souvenirs, snacks and meals are obviously not included with park admission either.

    As for whether March or April is more budget-friendly, it depends.  For 2012, much of March is considered peak season, followed by Disney's slightly more expensive Easter season (which occurs during the first two weeks of April).  Regular season returns for the second half of April and is reflected in the steep decrease of room rates.  The nation's spring school breaks as well as Easter dates affect pricing for March and April, so it really fluctuates year to year.  I hope that helps!
