View Full Version : Package or separate? Which is cheaper now?

In the past I know it was always cheaper to book everything separate. But what about now? If you are not getting the dining why get the package? Just trying to figure this whole thing out..........

I'm with you. I still can't find all the information about the new packages including the dining, so I'm not comfortable making a decision. I always do things separately, so I'm going to continue that until I hear from the masses that the package with dining is the way to go!

I think doing it separate IF you have a discount on your room, is still cheaper from what I have read and what I have figured.

You might want to post this question on the Budget Board. aka-mad4themouse is very knowledgeable about stuff like this along with others on the budget board.

I have called CRO and asked theis question to 3 different CMs. The price is the same both ways. Per all 3 CMs, it does not matter which way you figure it, it will come out to be the same price.

So, I tried that theory. I asked one CM to quote me on a room-only reservation and then tickets. Then I asked another CM to quote me on a package, providing all of the same details, it came out to be the same both ways.

And of course, a room code for a room-only reservation will make it much cheaper.

Just wondering.....did the prices of the cruises drop any?

Where do you get the codes? And can anyone use them?

Thanks :D

we're AP holders so we always get room only, and when we go about 3 times a year, it's cheaper than the packages. I helped a friend book a last minute trip in december, and we figured out that it was cheaper for her to get her tickets at the disney store, and then book a room only ressie...
