Depends on a lot of things…how long are you staying? What are your interests?

Friends of mine went to Disney for their honeymoon and then took their kids with them to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary. They loved it both times.

It is going to BUSY there in August so I would suggest getting to the parks first thing in the mornings for the rides and leave around noon-1PM to go back to the pool or do other things. Then head back to the parks in the evenings. Take advantage of fast passes. I don’t really do anything outside of the parks so that is all I have for suggestions!

@Tigerlilybride:  If you don’t mind my asking, how much did you end up paying, and what did it all include? FI and I are looking at Disney World for our honeymoon in February.

@LTD418:  February will be cheaper than August for hotels because they’ll be non-peak rates. Just keep that in mind.

@PrincessBride2014:  +1

 

August is BUSY!!  Hit the parks early and absolutely use fast passes!!  If you haven’t already, make your dining reservations NOW because the more popular restaurants tend to fill up quickly for the popular times.  If you are staying on property, take advantage of the extra park hours.  When we were there in January, we ate an early breakfast in Epcot, but after we were done we had a good amount of time to explore the park before it was open to the public.  Great perk!  (Another night we had an extra hour in MK after the parade that the park was open to those staying at the resorts.)

@LTD418:  I stayed this past January during marathon weekend, and for 5 nights in a value resort, 4 days park tickets (not hopper) and dining plan was about $1200 for the both of us.  I think bumping up to the moderate was an additional $400 for the same.  We were more interested keeping the $400 in our pocket for spending money, especially since we knew we’d be in our room only to sleep & shower.  If we were honeymooning, we’d obviously splurge.. 🙂

@LTD418:  February and August are on opposite ends of the Disney price spectrum. Early February will be much cheaper than later in February. Depending on what resort you stay at will also determine price. We have stayed at the moderate resorts in April and September and paid about $1100 each for the week (with park hopper tickets). I would expect you wouold pay about the same. Make sure you click the “Special Offers” page when looking into vacations on Disney’s website, can chck discounts on the rooms and sometimes they throw in a free dining plan.

@PrincessBride2014:  

I’ve only been able to run quotes up to December on Disney’s site, so each time I’ve done it, they’ve been for moderate rooms, 7 days, hopper tickets, dining plan, and flights, and it has been a little under $4000. Did you guys book your flights through Disney or separately?

@Tigerlilybride:  Sorry for asking my questions in your thread! I don’t mean to hijack it.

We went to to Disney World on our honeymoon in April. We loved it, but wished we stayed longer. We were only there for 5 nights! 9 sounds perfect! I would definitely recommend leaving a few days completely open to just lay by the pool and hit downtown disney at night for dinner. After the parks, youll be wanting a day to do nothing! Those days ended up being our favorites!

 Also, we stayed on disney property but not at a disney resort hotel and it was amazing. It saved us money so we could have more spending money and It took us literally 2 min to walk to downtown disney and was so romantic to have that time together at night whenever we felt like walking over there for a little bit.

I highly recommend making your dinner reservations now if you havent already because we couldnt eat anywhere in the parks bc we didnt have them!!! Literally, you cant eat unless u want fast food if u dont have a reservation! We often ate breakfast before the parks(we had a fridge in our room so we had cereal, sanwiches,bananas, etc) a lunch at the parks and went to downtown disney everynight for dinner (you dont need reservations at downtown disney)

I also say go to universal one day! Buy the one day park hopper ticket bc you can easily get through both parks in one day!!!! I promise! And universal is definitely worth going to see, they ahev so many cool rides and shows, you shouldnt miss it and itll be a nice change from disney for a day!

Dont forget to get your happily ever after button at disney! Its fun to get congratulations all day and we even recieved a free dessert at dinnertime!

If you dont mind missing the parade at magic kingdom, thats the best time to get on the rides without lines! Also, we found that the line times were dramatically shorter than what the time on the sign said (we were there in april)

Dont forget to bring as much with u as u can because everythign is more expensive there! We forgot our sunscreen and the cheapest we could find was 16 bucks! And headache medicine was 10! So make a checklist and bring that kind of stuff with!

My biggest regret was that we only had 2 days to sit by the pool and relax! So thats my best advice….plan a few days to relax with no parks!

@LTD418:  Parts of December are pretty pricey (especially around the holidays).  If you contact Disney or a Disney travel agent, they will be able to quote you room and ticket prices for next year, but the packages (with dining) will probably be released around end of July/August for 2014.  I am actually going to go through a Disney travel agent this year as opposed to booking myself through Disney so that someone else can remember to make all my dining reservations (I always forget haha).  Plus, this way if discounts come out, she will be able to apply them to my stay and I won’t have to worry about missing them.

 

I did not book my flights through Disney.  I found cheaper fare on my own and booked that way.  As long as you provide Disney with your flight information you can still utilize their Magical Express transport to/from the airport.

@MsAmandaAnn:  I’ve contacted 2 Disney travel agents, so I’m waiting to hear from them once the rates for 2014 are out. Thanks!

@Tigerlilybride:  Do you already have your room and restaurant reservations?
