    Ok here goes, I have a premier annual passport, a regular Disney Visa Card and an AAA card. Which should I use to get the best rates on a vacation plan? With the annual passport, I won't need tickets. Can I still get a package deal without tickets added?

    Hi Toni! Getting the best rate on Disney packages varies with time of year and what you are needing. Disney itself will often offer great opportunities such as Free Dining or buy a certain amount of nights and get one free, etc.  Rates for annual pass guests can be wonderful but there are black out times and these offers are generally only done a few months out. If you are needing to plan a vacation far in advance this isn't the best way to go. If you can go with only months notice this is a great way to get a good room price and not worry about having to add the tickets.
    AAA is one of the best vacation package plans out there. I would most definitely check with them to see if you can do everything but the tickets. I love the amenities they offer such as the story time with a Disney character at Epcot and the AAA Diamond parking pass for the parks.

    It is difficult to find the deals that don't include all aspects such as tickets. I too am an annual pass holder and we look for the annual pass discount as well as bounce back offers when we are there. Holiday bookings are more difficult to find a discounted rate at a resort of your choice. Unfortunately, not all resorts will offer the same discounts at the same time so flexibility is a key to using this option.
