If you do you will have to upgrade them to the premium passes. Make sure you use the passes first. My premier (DL and WDW) passes cost me 3000 total vs 3600. Buying the non expiration tickets last year and upgrading them along the way turned out to be a good savings plan for me. I am sorry to see those tickets go. I'm guessing Disney doesn't like people saving 600.00 on their annual passes.

Jen, I don't mind. Gives me something to do.

You know, I got Disney's site to work (new one) and they've got photos of all the different room types. I checked out the Deluxe -- and feel free to call me "weird" (I can take it as I've been called worse) -- but it appears as if the room entrance is closest to where the daybed is located. I don't think I could sleep with my bebe being closest to the door. Yes, weird, I know.

Looks like Garden View in the Garden Wing it is, then.

Ok, so it all sounds good! Now I just have to figure out the best approach with DH. Or, I can just do it and not tell him!! No...that would be wrong. Very wrong.

I am going to call CRO tonight after the girlies go to bed, and hope I have good luck with a CM.

THen I will play around with the ticket numbers a bit more to see which are best. Question: on the WDW site, do the ticket prices include tax or not??

Jen

Miss: Yay for CR!!!

Padawans : $3000 for WDW and DL? That is great!

I believe, on the old site, you had to proceed to checkout to get the tax to show. Sneaky buggers. UT has tax included.

I just realized, the day I want to go down in October? It's our anniversary. Do we really want to fly in on our anniversary? Ugh.

I just realized the WDW prices I was seeing did have tax, and therefore Iheart I think you were right that the 5 day PH would be the best saving us about $100. But yes that would get us a TIW card!

Miss: Maybe you could plan a nice dinner for your arrival day? Or celebrate it the next day???

Jen I'm sure you are doing this but be sure to purchase the tickets at Undercover going thru the Mousesavers newsletter link .... it's suppose to save $$$.

Well, we are a party of 5 that booked while we there in Jan to go back this Sept, but i'm having a horrible time deciding if it was the right call on the time and also the resort. Its myself, my DW, DS 8, DD 6 and DS 3 at the time we go back, we're booked at GF. Not sure really want to stay there and though we've never stayed at contemp, when we've visited there we never much cared for it. Now i'm considering trying a mod for the first time POR is where we'd stay. Problem is the monorail was def great for the ages of our kids. What to do what to do.

I am no help to you....we have stayed at Poly twice and then booked at POR. Now we switched to BC, I can't imagine not having ease of traveling to at least 2 of the parks with small ones. I think it is worth it to be at one of the closer deluxes.

I tried messing around more as I really believe you can save more then that. I found this page on Mousesavers where you can still see the WDW prices for NE.

http://www.mousesavers.com/disney-wo...t-price-chart/

I started looking at it a bit and I noticed that 8 day ph/wpfm/ne would be 2789.85. They would have a full gate value of 3094.89 which is more then the cost of APs, but still seems like it nets you the highest savings since you wouldn't have to pay anything else to upgrade. The savings would be about $267 for these.

Anyway, have fun messing around with it. Also, one thing I thought about was that you don't have to buy the same tickets for kids and adults. The kids seem like a no brainer at the 8 day ph/wpfm/ne as the credit you get is exactly the cost of an AP (611.31) but they only cost 553.95. The adults are the ones that push the value higher. If that makes any sense. Good luck!

Padawans - Did you buy your NE tix before the big ticket increase last year? That might be why your savings were so much higher.

Miss - I think traveling on your anniversary would be cool! Date night maybe?

The "special" link is in their newsletter which comes out on the 15th so go ahead and sign up for that. I checked my email and also my email trash but I guess I've thrown away all my newsletters. Maybe someone else can post a link for the latest one for you. I know RCers don't want to wait .... we want it all and we want it NOW!!!
