Okay I am not from the UK but live in your neighbour to the west. After much humming and hawing (and an unexpected tax return) I have decided to take my son to the House of Mouse sometime in Winter next year. I have lots of questions. When would you recommend going with a 5 yr old? Halloween? Thanksgiving?? Nearer Christmas??? Will prices increase or decrease as the time gets closer (using your crystal balls)? Is it worth getting the dining plan and if you get the regular dining plan you are allocated a one course meal for dinner- is that right?? Can you get by happily without the waterparks and park hopper options? Unfortunately I will be heading for a value resort- would love one of the deluxe hotels but which value would you recommend?? If you get through all that and even answer one of my questions thank you!!
