    Hey I can join in your excitment. We're off to Florida beg December, we last went Dec 11 & it was brill. I'm just looking a villas now & think we've found the perfect one. This time our DD is bringing her BF & his son who will be 4 when we go. Yikes, it's going to be so different than what we are used to, I'm used to going with teenagers & young adults not 4 year olds!!!!! You can't believe the planning that has gone into the holiday.

    We're doing different things like Gatorland, Dinoworld, 'lands' in Magic Kingdom we've never been to, it's going to be so exciting.

    We're are you staying, who is going with you.

    We've not booked flights yet, when we went Dec 11 the flights cost 342 & the plane was empty so we're booking our flights later in the year, looki liki Virgin though. Tonight I booked our villa we're staying at the Highlands Reserve which isn't too far Way from the parks.

    Super excited at the mo, I think even more so as we've been before & know how good it is.

    DD would love to stay onsite but we really can't afford it.

    DD is already thinking about the 'next' time they go

    Crikey how cheap is that accomodation, bargin, flights are an expense, we're so lucky now we can travel out of season it saves us such a lot of money.

    Ok, what's the best time of year to go to Florida? We really want to plan a trip but will flights be mega expensive? Is there a cheaper time of year to go? How much could we expect to pay for 2 weeks, flights plus villa? Not bothered about staying onsite if it makes it cheaper. 2 adults plus 2 young kids (3 and 5).

    Thanks all! :-)

    If you're happy taking the 5 year old out of school the first two weeks in December are the cheapest, that's when we are going. It's just after Thanksgiving & just before the Christmas bookings.

    There are so many places to stay out of the Disney parks. We've just booked our accomodation which is on Highland Reserve, 4 beds, pool inc heating 944, our flights last time we went were 342 pp, but I'm keeping an eye on them & will book when the are about 400-450. You don't have to get a car but we always do, I've bugeted 400 for this.

    Otherwise if you need to go during the school hols, either Easter or October, as it's rainy season July-Sept & even though it's hot it does rain a few hours a day really hard.

    If there is anything else you need just ask, I've got my little excel spreadsheet to refer to!

    Hi all, hope you don't mind me dropping in on this thread. We are in the process of booking Florida, just trying to find the right things to match our budgets. I'm finding travelcitydirect are coming in at really good prices for the whole package incl. car hire and park tickets!

    Hey no probs 'dropping in'. Have you thought about booking it all yourself instead of with a travel agent?

    When we first started going to Florida we used Travelcitydirect & the good thing about them was you would get discount for repeat booking. But a few years ago Virgin bought them out & I no longer find them competitive.

    I get a non official disney newsletter & apparently the disney tickets are due to go up in price soon, so it may be worth buying those soon.

    Mishelly77 when are you going to Florida & where are you staying?

    We're looking for December 2014 at the mo. it's me and my sister and the children. We're both single parents and have never been to Florida before, that was why we were thinking of booking with an agent so we have a rep or someone at the end of a phone if something goes wrong.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated ease Happy Holidays! xxx

    I have an excel spreadsheet which has approx costs, itinery, villas i've looked etc pm me your email address if you want & i'll forward it to you.

    i must admit the first time you book something without a travel agent its scary, but you'll find the Americans are very helpful & will do their best to help.
