    Hello, I am planning our first family vacation for four to WDW on Nov 30-Dec 3, 2012. I am on a budget so should I purchase a disney package or should I book everything seperately. And also should I purchase a dining plan. Please help, I am soo lost.

    Hi Trendle!

    As with anything involving spending a good portion of money, you'll need to do your homework.  Most of the time, I can get a better deal on airfare if I book it myself, so that's what I do.

    As far as the Disney Dining Plan is concerned, it really depends on your eating habits.  If you are more the snacking/light meals type the Dining Plan might not be a good deal for you.  If you keep your eyes peeled, you might be able to get the Dining Plan for free as a special promotion, but you'll need to check on that as your vacation dates near.  Remember, if you book now, you always have the option to add a promotion on at a later time...just keep checking back!

    Have a magical vacation!
