    Hi all
    We have an idea of doing a rush trip to wdw before Cams operation but as he needs to be back for a pre op assessment by 12th dec is it doable ???Ive tried to do flights this morning on VA and it says none available what am i doing wrong??
    Also does anyone know about travel insurance if you know u are having an op on return and u are on antibiotics before and during youre trip ???
    Where do i find a villa at such short notice ??
    Is it just a dream to be able to organise and go in less then 3 weeks??

    What dates are you looking for Louise? I've just done a search on VA for 2 weeks from next Saturday and there seems to be plenty of availability - around £428 per adult.

    I've been through the list of villas we've stayed at in the past and most of those are booked for at least part of the time, but i'm sure you should be able to find something even at this short notice - post the dates once you've sorted the flights and i'm sure we can all find somewhere.

    No idea on the travel insurance question i'm afraid - hopefully someone else can advise.

    Been reading your blog regularly and really hope you can arrange something ahead of the procedure in December - you really deserve to have a great trip as at least a short respite from everything.

    there's lots of availability in the WDW resorts, if you're willing to do that instead of a villa..

    i've done trips to WDW with 3 days notice, so there's no reason you shouldn't be able to do it with 3 weeks notice..

    as for the insurance, it depends what the surgery is for.....
    if it's elective surgery for which he won't have an emergent event while on holiday it should be ok - but i guess you'll have to check with the travel insurance to be sure..

    Hi there,
    I have posted on the dibb and had loads of villa details that areavailable from now until 12th Dec most are a good deistance from wdw but for 7 days and a rush trip i can live with that !!
    Travel insurance is proving a bit more tricky which i do understand - not sure id want to insure us either !!! Im sure if i keep trying someone will insure us but it does come at a cost :scared1:
    The only real stumbling block really is the hospital giving consent - my dh thinks they will just laugh at me but we will see monday !!
    My ideal dates peebee would be 5th - 12th Dec that way i wont drive myself insane counting down the days !!

    According to VA they have availability on both of the flights out on the 5th returning next week, same price as I listed before - £428 per adult, £2341 for 2 adults/4 kids.

    Agree it would be great staying on-site for a week, if you can find accommodation that will fit your family - don't know what the cost or availability of a 2-bed villa at SSR or OKW would be for a week, but they might work out for you.

    the issue of medical insurance for difficult situations has come up before on this board....i'm pretty sure there is a company that provides it, but i don't know the name..
    perhaps someone else will remember.....or knows how to search for it..

    as for accomodations...
    i didn't realize you're a big family.....i wonder how much a 2BR at OKW costs for that week....i'll see if i can bring it up on disney.uk...

    Louise, just realised you'd be looking to fly from Manchester, not Gatwick, but have checked again and still seats available for your dates - 427 per adult, 2335 for entire party.

    just checked disney.uk - nothing in the villas comes up for those dates...guess it's full for those dates..
    but maybe if you call, there is something..

    Dreams unlimited often has good prices for hotels with suites - you might check them..
    but it wouldn't be onsite...

    just looked on the WDW US site (disney.com) and found you could get a 2 BR villa at saratoga springs if you rob a bank first - it's $595/night :eek:

    but it's available for those dates - a 'wee' bit pricey though...

    why not check with Dreams Unlimited and see what they can find for you.
    I think they might also have offsite villas...
    check with them and see.

    i just tried the disney.uk site again
    it came up with an offsite, all suite hotel - the staybridge..
    a 2 BR suite for £1,730.00 for the days you're looking at
    and that includes 7 day premium tickets for your whole party...

    so i think if you call up a TA or contact DU, you'll be able to find something without any problem at all.
    Not onsite, but nearby.

    This is what came up when i searched on the dates for a family of 6 (i just stuck in ages for your children so it might not be completely correct, depending on the age of your kids):

    Your Walt Disney World holiday itinerary is displayed below
    Staybridge Suites (Lake Buena Vista)
    2 Bed Trio L2 from 5th December 2009 - 12th December 2009
    2 Adults, 4 Children

    Disney's 7 Day Premium Ticket
    2 x Disney's 7 Day Premium Ticket (Ages 10 and Up)
    4 x Disney's 7 Day Premium Ticket (Ages 3-9)

    Magical Extras
    EARmails Service
    Disney Store Merchandise Discount at disneystore.co.uk

    i just checked the sheraton vistana using the dreams unlimited rate code.

    they have availability for the dates your want - in a 2 BR villa.

    they have both full housekeeping and no housekeeping rates available.

    the sheraton vistana is offsite, but a very good resort.

    here are some of the rates i came up with using the dreams unlimited code:

    full housekeeping:
    2 BR villa - $209/night - total for days you want: $1463

    No housekeeping:
    2 BR villa - $129/night - total for days you want: $903
