No.... Our original reservation was through Disney with the dining plan. Since we're taking our 2 sons (who can really put food away), I was disappointed, but when I ran the numbers, we will actually be saving a little.....

okay..thanks. I like the idea of the dining plan too much to change. I know that if we were eating out of pocket we would be penny pinching and I would probably eat items I dont want, just because its cheaper Would I save $$? Yes. Would I enjoy myself as much? Probably not. Im glad it worked out for you.

I am exactly the same way! It's your vacation and you should do what's going to make you happy! My situation is, we're taking our 2 grown boys and neither care much for desserts. My DH doesn't even care for them, but on the dining plan, orders it anyway. So, I guess things will even out. I set a large budget for food, so I'll try and relax. Have a great trip!!!

When I ran the numbers, the rate I got is only $300 more than FD would have been, so I'm content. Cheaptickets is owned by Orbitz, and Orbitz will also offer discount codes sometimes.
I never thought of going about it this way. If you get tickets from another source, you can attach them to your room? I know I've read about it, but I never wanted to have to bother with it, especially with the unknowns of the wrist band stuff now.

I'm helping DD and her BFF plan a trip for May. They currently have the room only booked at POR with the discount. What can you tell me about cheaptickets? I went on their website and see what you're saying. Right now it's an additional 20% off which would save them quite a bit of money. But I'm unfamiliary with cheaptickets and a little nervous about going the non-Disney route.
