your best way to do this would be to stay at one of the Disney owned resorts and get one of the dining plans.

i would ask for a quote from http://www.mousefan.travel/mft/index.php

this is a travel agency that is disney authorized and they are free to you. they get paid by disney. i have used them and Beci (the CEO) is a regular on the WDW Radio podcast and is freaking awesome.

You can stay AT Disney and get your drinks and meals for free right now! Go to this site http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/special-offers/

The very first offer is about their free dining promotion! Fiance and I chose to spend a bit more and upgrade to the deluxe dining, so we get three sit down meals plus two snacks per day. My hotel recommendation really depends on you and your Fiance. The Grand Floridian is their most popular hotel for honeymooners, but it’s a bit stuffy for me and Fiance. We’ll be at the Contemporary, which is very modern and has the monorail driving through it. The Polynesian is also awesome with a beach, hammocks, etc. All three have awesome views of Cinderella Castle and the fireworks. But they’re pricy.

 

If you’re looking for a less expensive, but still out of the ordinary, hotel, I love the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Walking onto your own personal balcony and seeing zebras, giraffes, and more is AMAZING. Or, if you want to be closer to Epcot and World Showcasw, the Yacht Club is also supposed to be very nice, with the biggest nicestpool area of any of the hotels.

 

 

EDIT: Just realized your wedding is in 2012, I keep assuming cuz I’m getting free dining everyone else can too. Duh, silly me. Well, they do roll out these promotions often. They also occasionally send out pin codes to select email addresses randomly – i’ve gotten 40% of hotels and free dining offers this way. So sign up on the Disney World website so that you can possibly receive those. And keep an eye on the Disney site – if some great deal rolls out after you’ve booked your trip, jsut call and they’ll give you the deal and adjust your price. But it doesn’t really make sense to have an all-inclusive off property place, because you’ll do most of your dining in Disney, plus Disney will provide free transportation.

We are getting married in WDW and staying for our honeymoon also. i’m assuming you mean disney world (not disneyland) when you say you are going to disney.

We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside and are not getting a meal plan.

One of the great things about staying on property is the free use of Disney transportation. They will pick you up at the airport and they will get your luggage for you so you don’t have to wait around the carousel for your bags when you arrive. And you can take the Disney busses, ferryboats, monorails, for free to get to the parks and hotels and other areas like Downtown Disney. The transportation alone is a reason that I will never stay off property ever again.

 

oh! While I love the bee and am here every single day… I also frequent a message board that is just for Disney Weddings and Honeymoons. http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=55

@katiegirl84: for travel agent, definitely go through mei/mousefan travel (the link from my first response). they are great and they are free for you since their payment comes from disney. also… by going through them, if new deals and sales come out, they can apply those to your vacation through them.

another link i want to give you is http://disneytravelbabble.com/  the woman that does this blog is THE disney wedding and honeymoon expert (she literally wrote the book… Passporter’s Disney Weddings and Honeymoons) and she has lots of how-to guides for adding a private party or a fancy schmancy cake to your honeymoon. lots of tips from carrie, she’s the bomb.

Another good one if you like to read, hve never been to Disney, and want to be very prepared is The Unofficial Guide to Disney World 2011. I love that book! I used to study it like crazy as a kid, now no need since I’ve pretty much got my touring plan down. But it;s super useful for first-timers. Just don’t overdo it and try to cram too much in, your honeymoon should be relaxing!
