Dont go in the summer months its far to hot, shop around for cheap flights and car hire packages,If you are traveling florida get your accomodation when you arrive. You can stay in local motels etc for 1/2 the price.
Travel agencies charge far too much. If you are staying in one place e.g near the parks look for private villas to rent, they are fantastic, with private pool etc at a fraction of the cost.
Buy all your park tickets online before you go, Disney,Seaworld,Universal etc etc They are cheaper.
Flights are usually cheaper if you have a couple of change overs rather than flying direct.
I did lots and lots of research before we went. This year it is expensive we are finding, lots more than the lats twoce we have been.
We also have found that it has been cheapest this year to book with a travel agencies, which we have never done before. We are going with Thomsons and for three of us it has saved us over £1000.
For the first time ever we are staying in a Disney hotel too. We normally stay in a villa with my parents. But for three of us it is better value to go for the hotel.
We have ordered our Disney tickets and also ones for Universal. We have priced the tickets up for Seaworld and the Space Centre and it is fine this year to buy them when there. The Universal tickets were definitely cheaper though, saved $75 for the 3 of us.
I would always fly direct personally. I would hate to change. I'd prefer to ppay more for direct. It is cheaper to fly into Sanford but this is further out (we are flying there this time). Orlando is closer. But neither is too bad.
We have been in June and August, and obviously tomorrow is July. We have to go in school holidays now so have little choice. We have enever found it too bad. You spend so much time in air conditioned places or in fans with water coolers you never get over hot. Also, the summer is not their peak time - Easter is the worst, after Christmas - so the queues are actually not to bad.
I am rather excited, lol!. I leave at 10 tomorrow for a 1pm flight
