ive been number crunching today....even though im not planning a trip...yet

sept 2010 i paid £552 for 2 ad, 1 6yr old and a 2yr old for 4 nights staying in the santa fe.

this 25% off + free meal offer price for this sept works out at £882 for 4 nights staying in the santa fe.

im trying to work out if thats a good price or not? i dont think it sounds too bad tbh, and i think ive got to pay for my son now who's 7yrs old as well??!?

so are you now 2 adults and 2 kids aged over 3? If so, the free half board is worth at least £250 for your 4 nights, so that means the holiday price without the free food is around £630. Doesn't sound too bad to me, for 3 years worth of Disney inflation .

I hope so

So happy to see 35% on lots of dates - the other sites are showing only 25% so maybe this is the benefit of booking with dlp directly.

Price for HNY 3 nights is showing about £80 more with the meal vouchers, than just with the 40% off - so a definite saving it you minus the face value of the vouchers.

I'm just scratching my head looking at flight prices etc...I wish I lived neared

So have just rung and been told I can't change my booking

We decided on just extending our stay at Cheyenne to 6 nights and staying at Kyriad for the first night.

Was arriving on the 10th july for 4 nights, asked to swap to arrival on the
11th july for 6 nights still at cheyenne and was told the offer is for new bookings only but that I could cancel and rebook but then I lose £150 deposit

Ignore that just rang back realised that although I was extending the booking I wasn't upgrading
so have upgraded to Buffallo room and it's gone through.

Boys are going to be chuffed that they don't have to share, husband's going to be chuffed that he doesn't have to pay in the restaurants and as he kept saying he really likes the Cheyenne.
Liam is going to bounce off the walls when he finds out we now have tickets for every day of our stay, he's just not happy with our plans to visit Paris and Val d'Europe, now he can do an hour or two park time either before or after our trips away from the park.

and I'm just happy that I'm going back to the magic and for 7 whole days

Now to contact Travel Republic to see if I can change our booking there, fingers crossed for me

The offer has changed! I booked our stay this morning online and it was 35% off and the half board dining, just had a look, it's changed to 25% off and free half board dining, it's £122 more expensive tonight! Not sure what's gone on there but I'm so glad I booked this morning instead!

Well that was a lucky saving.

I'll be phoning Eurostar in the morning to get the prices for two returns as they are only showing up to October on their website and I need the first week in November.

Hopefully they'll be a good price, I called about a week ago and booked our travel in November, can't believe how much the difference is if you book it in advance, I'll always do that now.

Really pleased with the deal.
It cost me just over £700 more than my original booking but have 2 extra park days for 4, so say £200 minimum, Kyriad was costing me £250, so have 6 days dining vouchers for 4 adults for £250 not bad at all

Just looked at our dates.. at least €200 more expensive! We were doing cheaper meals some days so the vouchers wouldnt have been a great plus for us.
I just did some quick maths and we could do TS or Buffet meals for under €200 anyway. That was Annettes, Steakhouse, La Cantina and Rainforest Cafe. I hadn't planned on having 3 course meals either so I could definitely save on these estimations.
I paid €498 (4N/5D > 2 days and nights free)
The new offer is €692.

Happy we booked when we did

I think the big saving for us is probably because we're an all adult group, I just expect and plan for our main meal bill to be 120 - 150 euros, think the most we've spent was 230 euros at the Chicago Steakhouse.

For our first night the cheapest I could get was the Serris apartments in Val d'europe at £72 B&B plus I've had to pay a £20 amendment charge, so that's knocked the saving down a bit too, but £350 for 6 days meals isn't bad

It is really good Jill. Definitely a deal that works best for adults.
We were thrilled with the 1st deal we got, delighted to see this deal working out for so many
