    I am trying to plan a vacation weekend for my dauther and myself. She is 9 and we have never been to Disney. I am planning to arrive in Disney and stay for 3 nights. I want to stay within my budget, what's the best hotel/ticket package?

    Hi Angela! I notice several questions with your concern about how to book a Disney vacation.  There are several ways to do this from calling directly, doing this on line, or working with a local travel agent or AAA.

    Since this is your first time I suggest you either work with a travel agent or call directly to Disney so you can express your thoughts to a person who can help find the best package available for you and your daughter.  The central reservation number is 407-934-7639.  A Disney cast member will be glad to assist you in best deals for the time you will be traveling.  Free Dining is something that has been offered and would help with your budget. Staying at one of the great value resorts will also help and my favorite one in that category is the Pop Century.  Your daughter would love the giant Mickey phone or the Bowling pin pool!

    The best savings for tickets is to purchase one park one day tickets.  I do prefer to park hop but that adds a large price to the tickets so if you can plan and do one park only each day this will be a savings for you.

    Remember that all transportation inside the Walt Disney World property is complimentary to resort guests and that is for all busses, monorail, and boats.  If you are flying you can also be eligible for the Magical Express complimentary bus service from and to the airports.

    Good luck in your planning and hope we can help as you have more questions!
