Hello, DISers, I'm looking for some opinions and suggestions regarding my friends' first trip to Disney. I hope this is the best place to put this thread. Last night my friend told me she booked her family's trip to Disney. It was a bit surprising to me that she hadn't said anything about it before booking -- My boyfriend and I have been multiple times, we just returned from a trip to the Tokyo resort, blah, blah... My point is, we're the "Disney" people in our group of friends and we've told them in the past that we'd be happy to help them sort it out whenever they were ready to go. (Although, the fact that she didn't come to us first might be my cue that my advice isn't wanted. ) Here are the players: My friend and her husband, four boys ages 10, 6, 2, and 4 months, and maybe Grandma. Grandma really doesn't have any desire to go, and if she does, she plans on staying at the resort all day with the baby, so no park tickets for her. Here's what my friend says they've booked: Oct 26 to Nov 1 in a suite at All-Star Music, 4-day park hopper tickets, tickets to MNSSHP, and free dining (the regular dining plan, not the QS plan). Total cost about $3200, not including any airfare. She used "some guy DH went to high school with, he's a Disney travel agent" to book this. I'm concerned about a few things. One, she didn't know the food court at ASMu will be closed while they're there until I told her. I feel any decent travel agent would've mentioned this. Two, she said they're getting a two bedroom suite. Um, as far as I can tell no such accommodations exist at ASMu. Three, she says the dining plan was free, otherwise she wouldn't have gotten it. When I look at the dining offers on the Disney site the only free dining offered for that resort is the QS plan (for dates that don't match hers, nonetheless). She was very clear that they have the plan that includes 1 TS credit, 1 QS credit... I'm thinking she might be under the impression the dining plan is free when in reality she's paying for it. So I don't know if the confusion is on my end or hers or if this travel agent has seriously misinformed her. Basically, I'm here to ask if anyone has thoughts on this situation, and is she getting a good deal or are there better accommodation options for a family of this size? I'm not all that familiar with the values and mods, the dining plan isn't a good fit for us so we've never used it, and I've definitely never traveled with a family of that size, so I'm kind of out of my comfort zone on this. I don't want to weasel in on her trip plans or make her feel bad about anything they've paid for, but I wouldn't feel right if I saw the red flags in advance and didn't offer some gentle guidance. Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
