    I'm trying to plan a Disney World vacation for 7 nights either the end of feb. 2012 or the begining of march 2012. 4 adults and 2 children ages 4 and 5. we have a budget of $2500 for a hotel and tickets. and advice to get us started?

    Hi Stephanie,

    It's always good to have a budget in mind when planning any vacation.  With a budget of $2500 for hotel and tickets, I would start by deciding which of the value resorts at Disney most appeals to your family.  You can visit them all here.  It's going to be hard to decide because they all look like so much fun!

    Once you choose the Disney value resort that interests you most, I would contact a travel agent well-versed in booking Walt Disney World vacations.  Ask them to keep an eye out for special offers for late February/early March 2012.  You could also check periodically on the special offers page on the Disney World website to see if anything pops up that fits your criteria, but I have found that travel agents are sometimes privy to information that I would have missed. 

    More than likely it will be most cost effective to buy your theme park tickets in conjunction with your room reservation.  Once this reservation is in place, start counting down the days to your magical adventure.

    Good luck and don't hesitate to send us more questions if you have any in the months ahead.
