    With so many resources to purchase packages/tickets, etc. How and where can you be sure you are getting the best value?

    Hi, Kris!!  The first thing I always do, is decide where I want to stay, and generally its either a Value or Moderate resort.  I then book a room for the dates, I'd like to come.  I place a room deposit, which is one nights stay, and shop around.  You can cancel without penalty up to 6 days before arrival.  So, you will have plenty of time to seek out the deals.  I have reservations that are room only, I want to see if my husbands company will have tickets, or AAA may have something, check out the promotions at some sites like mouseforless, and are just two that I frequent.  If I come up empty, well, then I head back to the site, and book my tickets.  The ticket packages will not change whether you book them now or later, but the hotel room rate could increase.  You want to lock in your rate as early as possible.  Just keep asking questions, we will help if we can!!  Heather M.
