    We want to stay on-site from December 21 for 7 nights. We have an 8 year old son. Which is the most economical package for us to take (and which resort)? Is it worth taking one of the dining plans or is it better to just eat as we go? Limited budget.

    Hello Kathleen!  You may want to check out the buy 4/get 3 promotion.  You can read all the details here.  This is the only active promotion that I know of (and it's a good one!) for your time period.  However, you may also want to check to see if there are other specials underway.

    As far as the dining plan, depending on how many sit down meals you are planning will determine if this is a good deal for you.  Since you are booking your vacation later than most, you may have trouble securing dining reservations for the more popular locations/dining times.  For this reason, if I were you, I would probably skip the purchase of the dining plan and pay as you go.

    Good luck with your vacation planning and let us know if you have further questions!  Diane
