LOL really wanna know.... FREE

I earned a $10,000 vacation anywhere I wanted by being Top Recruiter for the year with Uppercase Living!

Of course choose Disney... kids have never been and either has DH. It will be his 40th birthday while we are there!

So what does $10,000 get me

10 nights 11 days at BC CL
9 passes with hoppers and waterpark
Dining Plan
Airfare for 5 from TN
and $455 that I am not sure what do do with yet!

Then out of pocket will be tip money and spending money!
We are so excited!!

Wait, you can use two deals? Free dining and a percentage off? I thought you had to use one or another?

You can only use one promotion at a time. I dismissed this post as the poster being confused.

Thank you so much for being so observant. I meant to say I booked before free dining was offered. So the room rate wasn't super high which is what Disney does when offering you free dinning. But my whole post should not be 'dismissed" because I didn't know how to express this...I did write it at like 2 am. Aww can't you just feel the love.

Lack of sleep can = confusion. . Wasnt meant to be rude...I just didn't want another reader to think that you can stack discounts, because you can't.

When you get free dining, you pay rack rate (full price) on the room...just to be clear for other readers.

I didn't want to call you on it, until somebody got the wrong idea. Again, no offense meant.

Disney wasn't much. Universal, however, kicked my bum, considering the percentage of the vacation I will be spending there (3 days 3 nights vs 12 days, 11 nights) Adding a few extra days to the disney stay would have been far cheaper.

Trip dates 8/8 - 8/22

Grand Total was 6667.50 (I was ~1600 over budget, but I don't regret any choices).

Here's the breakdown:

14 day stay in Orlando (3 nights at Universal, 11 at DisneyWorld at Pop)

Universal Cost ($1752.95)
3 days of 2 park meal tickets for 1 Adult and 1 Child
Round Trip Meet and Greet Hotel Transportation
3 day Multi Park Tickets
3 nights at the Leows Royal Pacific Resort (Standard Room)
Hotel, meal plan and ticket cost - 1572.95

Add ins
Blue Man Group tickets for 1 Adult, 1 Child (poncho zone) - 180

Disney Cost (4261.55)
10 day Park Hopper and WP&M
11 night Stay at Pop Century (Preferred Room)
Magic Your Way plus Deluxe Dining
Hotel, meal plan and ticket cost - 3525.45

Add ins
2 Day Base Tickets (1 adult, 1 child) - 362.10
La Nouba tickets (section 204 for 1 Adult, 1 Child) - 174
Dine with an Imagineer at Brown Derby - 130
Richard Petty Driving Experience (Child) - 70


Flights ($653)
Down - 219.60
Back - 315.60 + 117.80 (I have a leg back to Atlanta after I drop of the kiddo with her mom in DC)
