    Hello~Would like to book WDW package asap for over Easter. We are not sure of exact arrival date as flight info. won't be released until Oct.& since we have some flexibility on dates, getting the best deal is important. What do you suggest?Love your pa

    Hi, Lynne!

    A spring-time vacation in Walt Disney World sounds great!  You must be so excited!

    Unfortunately, the few weeks around Easter are some of the busiest of the year, so the special offers during your travel period may be limited.  Because of this, I would book my flights first getting the cheapest dates possible on your flights then plan your room around that. 

    To make your vacation as economical as possible, book a room at a Value Resort.  These resorts offer the best pricing.   Regardless of the resort, Standard Rooms will always be the best price.

    For tickets, book "Base" tickets without pricey upgrades like park hopping or water parks.  While these options are nice, they can really add to the price of your ticket.

    Plan ahead!  Start saving now!  I like to get Disney Gift Cards and put them away so I can use them for meals, souvenirs, and even to pay for my room. 

    Finally, bring along items from home that can really add up if you get them at WDW:   autograph books, rain ponchos, sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, etc.  Bring these items from home to save a few extra dollars.  It will surely all add up!

    Please keep us posted as you plan your magical vacation!  Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
