We have always called DTC and booked packages through them far in advance. We are looking to go the last week of April 2008. We always get the DDP and stay at All Star resorts. I'm learning so much reading so many posts as to room only, package reservations, codes. I don't know much about this at all! (but seeing all those discounts I'm going to quickly learn!!) Which is the best way to plan this...wait for a code (when do they come out?), book just a room and buy tickets seperately (BTW, what is the refund/cancellation for room and tix?), or book a package, or do nothing right now? Do rates generally go up closer to the travel date or go down? So new to this whole "other/secret world" of Disney... to think of how much we could have been saving our last three trips!! I feel so foolish!!
