You would just book two separate one way magical express trips.

Use the link a PP gave above and book a one way from MCO with the first reservation number. Then book another separate one way from the resort back to MCO using the second resort reservation number. When the second online form asks if you have already contacted them to make a magical express reservation say NO. If you select yes, it may think you are changing your reservation and will cancel the first trip from MCO.

Yes, I already booked my Magical Express for June. All you need is the code from Cheap Tickets. It looks different than the one you get from Disney, it has numbers and letters. You will get Magic Bands if you are staying at a Disney Resort. Just enter your reservation number at the MDE site. FYI, you won't be able to get the dining plan.

Thank you so much!!!We were booked with the dining plan, but it was basically for convenience. I do believe I'll save a little going without it as we're not big eaters. Guess I'll go a head and do this.

Just an update for anyone who might be thinking about going with cheaptickets. I went ahead and made my reservations, immediately called Disney Travel Co. to cancel my reservations with them, and my cheaptickets reservation was already in their system. I went into MDE and linked the new reservations, very easy! Then I called the Disney magical Express number to get that scheduled. The lady who answered was sure the new reservation wouldn't show within 72 hours, much less 30 minutes. She was very surprised, and said it was the first time she's seen this happen. I'm very relieved that it was so easy. And I saved $628 over the spring offer!!!

I love saving money! Think of all the nice dinners you can have with the money you saved.

Does anyone know how park tickets work when using cheap tickets? If I opted out of buying tickets, can I add say 5 day tickets. I won't be getting a deal. Or say. I buy tickets and cancel the reservation for a different date what happens to those tickets? Am I out of the the money or will the transfer to a different date?

From what I've read on other threads about this, it's best to do room only on cheaptickets. Apparently they give you a voucher for your tickets with the dates of your trip, so if you have to change your dates, you may be out of luck. I'm buying my tickets at Undercover Tourist, which will save us an additional $100! Good luck!

Buy tickets separately. That will eliminate your having to use a redemption voucher, or any complications concerning a possible cancellation.

To those of you that don't know, as I haven't seen it mentioned in this thread, the discount code to get the extra 20% is "take20".

40% off Pop Century after the code plus two free hopper days on a 5 day MYW.

Way tempting.

Too bad I'm broke. Come onnnnn tax refund.

The code changes every couple of days, but it is usually listed on the Cheaptickets homepage.

Haven't been able to get the link for booking Magic Express to work - at one point it went to the booking location, but I didn't have airfare booked yet. Now that I booked airfare, that link doesn't work. But I know I can use the phone number.

Kids under age 10

I remember this topic from a different thread but can't remember what the final outcome was. When we price hotels for just 2 adults, the price is less than if we price hotels for 2 adults and 2 kids under age 10. That is obviously wrong, but is it a hassle to fix? I assume I would call Cheaptickets and they would have to edit and fix. I'm hesitant to use 3rd party, but the savings is pretty big, especially Easter week considering Disney is charging rack rate.

Yes, I would just call. I called before booking to ask a question about cancellation policies, and they were willing to book my trip over the phone. I do remember that the poster who had this problem, got it straightened out thru Disney, but if you can get around it by calling, all the better. I understand you concerns about a 3rd party vendor because I was the same way. We've booked thru Hotwire and Lastminutetravel.com without any problems, so we thought we'd give cheaptickets a try. Our savings were substantial! Hope it works out for you!
