Disney two centre (1 week hotel 1 week villa)?(6 Posts)
Hello, as the title says really we want to take the kids to Disneyworld Florida next year but have 5-7 days in a Disney hotel for the full experience and then the next 5-7 days in a villa to be able to relax more. I can't find a company that allows this to be booked together, other than doing it all separately ourselves which then adds up as you don't get all the freebies like extra free park days or free meal tickets that the main agents offer. I'd rather go through an agent if possible to reduce the amount of faffing on the internet I have to do.
Any one done this and have any suggestions for me? Thank you!
I have used Travel Councellors for our booking and we have a week at universal and then an apartment on the Gulf coast they were competitive.
If you book your Disney hotel and park tickets direct with Disney then you will still get all the perks..free dining plan etc. Book the villa separately and flights. This is what we do and it saves a lot of money. It is simple to do as well.
We did similar. There's a USA specialist agent based in Southampton called Bon Voyage, they'll do this for you and you get all the Disney perks as well as ATOL protection. Flights are much cheaper if you go non direct so we had a few days in New York too which the kids loved.
Any good travel agent should absolutely be able to book this for you, I don’t see what the problem is?
If you stay at a Disney property for a week then you can get the meal plan for the week you are staying there.
If you purchase a 14 day park pass (it’s usually on offer, 14 days for the price of 7) then you can use it for the full 14 days - it is not dependant on you staying at a Disney property for the whole 14 day duration.
Obviously you only get the free Disney transport while you are staying onsite.
I'd do it separately to be honest, as its not a particularly tricky one to book ime.
Book the Disney hotel and tickets direct with WDW and you will get the free meal plan. So long as it is available at the time for your dates, if you book tickets and hotel at the same time, most hotel options come with it. Book villa independently, plus flights and car hire.
Otherwise look at using an independent travel agency, who isn't linked to any specific airline or travel company. They should be able to do it very easily.
