    Hello moms! I am planning a very quick vacation... its valentines day and we plan to leave on march 9 until the 16th. i need some helpful tips on how a family of 3.5 (15 mnth old) can spend under $5000 :) thank you

    Hello Jodi!
    Planning your first Walt Disney World vacation is a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day!Disney is offering a great Spring promotion where rooms are discounted up to 30% off their normal price and the dates you mentioned above are eligible for this promotion! For the dates you mentioned, a package that includes Disney's Dining Plan is just under$2700.That price includes your hotel room at one of Disney's Value Resorts, Magic Your Way Tickets and Disney's Dining Plan. 
    Disney's Dining Plan is a great option and if you plan on eating at approximately 1 table service restaurant a day, this can be a really good value.  If you prefer to eat at counter service dining locations, then you could opt for Disney's Quick Service Dining. Another great perk to staying on Disney property is Disney's Magical Express,  they will take care of your checked luggage for you and transport you to your resort to and from the airport.Once you arrive, Disney has very efficient transportation system to get you wherever you need to go!
    When checking for deals on airfare, I use a couple of sites to keep track for me so that I can book it at the lowest possible rate.  Kayak and are two sites that I use to keep track and often they will list deals that are not available publicly.  A good day to check for low airfare rates is on Tuesday particularly in the afternoon. Also check with your airline will match competitor pricing.I hope I was able to help and please let me know if I can do anything else to plan your first Walt Disney World vacation!
    Best Wishes!
