First off, sorry if this isn't the right place to put this - wasn't sure where and ended up picking here since it involves me trying to best budget our trip! We are going to WDW next May. We are trying to finalize our dates in the next few weeks because I want to get our room booked and start paying on it so it can hopefully be paid off by the time we go. In the past we've always just booked it on a credit card and paid it off at home, but money is tighter now (2 kids later, go figure? ) In doing this, am I "locked in" to paying a certain amount each month between booking and when we go? Or is it just up to us? I also read a couple people say they bought their park tickets one at a time as they had money to spread out those costs and was thinking of doing that as well (planning on ordering them from undercover tourist). I want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly - If I've read it right, I wouldn't need to choose the "no expiration" option since they aren't activated/start to expire until the first day we use them in the parks, correct?? How early would you order park tickets? Any cons to ordering them "too early?" Ok, think that's all the questions...for now. We haven't been to Disney since our honeymoon in '02 and wow, feels like a whole new experience!!
