View Full Version : Package or Room Only for first half of 2010 trip???

Hi -- We are going to WDW in June 2010.... We are going to do a 10 day trip.... A split stay -- first 5 at Pop and last 5 at AKL (CL).

I already called and booked Animal Kingdom Lodge Club Level for room only for the last 5 days....

For the first 5 days, I am trying to decide if we should do a package or rooms only.... We will need a 9 day Park Hopper... SO, I was thinking of doing the Package at Pop w/ the tickets for the whole trip... I contemplated dining for the first 5 days, but the new rates seem a little steep, so I think we may just pay OOP for food.

Then I got to thinking, it might be easier just to book rooms for Pop also and buy a Hopper separately... Do you really save any $$ on the packages? Are there other perks? What would you do?
