Hi, I am planning a trip for August 2013 for myself and my dd 14 and ds 10. We want to stay at AoA for 7 nights and do maybe the 5 day tickets for the parks or maybe 6 days I am not sure yet. I do want one day free to lounge around and relax since I will be driving from IL(chicago area) to Florida but most likely stop around Savannah Ga to see my son who lives in that are and then stop in Jacksonville to see my mom(family). Anyhoo back to my question. I was going to do a travel agent but then I realized the exact same quote I got I could do myself via the disney site. I want the DDP because we loved the convenience of that last time. Visited August 2012 and stayed at POP. Should I book the hotel myself(paying for the one day deposit) via the disney site, buy my tickets from UT with a code? and add the dining plan later? I can do that right? Any insight and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I of course want to do as cheap as possible. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
