Congratulations to your daughter and her squad!
Typically packages include what you want them to. The room, tickets, and dining combo is a popular option. You can also purchase only tickets or a package with room and tickets or reserve a room and then buy tickets separately- no wonder you are confused. There are also numerous options for tickets and add ons and types of resorts and dining plans.
If you are on a tight budget, take a look at the value resorts
. Cheer groups and teams often stay at Disney's All-Star Sports Resort, one of the value hotels. Boldly themed with a lively, fun atmosphere, a pool, and a food court the value resorts are the most economical places to stay at Walt Disney World.
Consider how much time you will get to spend in the parks before choosing your ticket options. If your daughter's schedule only allows you a day or two in the parks you will need to decide if you want to spend extra on Park Hoppers so you can visit as many theme parks as possible or if you want a basic ticket just to visit the Magic Kingdom. Take a look at Tickets and Passes
to help you decide which type of tickets you want.
Do look at outside websites that have great tips on saving at WDW such as Mousesavers as well as the Special Offers
page to see what deals Disney currently has.
Planning a WDW vacation can be overwhelming; that's why there is a Moms Panel. Please contact me with additional questions. I would love to help you plan a wonderful trip for your family.
