Congrats on winning such an awesome trip!So as a complete newbie to WDW and this forum, I asked this question already on the pre trip boards, and it seems like so far,the corporate dealive been given on tickets has been the best?
"So, I earned a trip for the family via Team Beachbody, and am due to go to WDW in March 2013. Thankfully, they chose our hotel for us (Yacht Club) so that is one thing I don't have to agonize over: boom, it's done.
Thing is, I gotta spring for the tickets, and I guess I was shocked by the cost. I've compared the corporate rate we got to the Disneyworld site prices, to undercover tourist, etc. I've even tried to see if AAA has any deals here in Texas.
For a 4 day base ticket (so far, we are not choosing to park hop due to the age of our kids, but that can change), for 2 adults, 3 kids (3,5,8), the price with tax is $1,178, or, $230.40 (adult), $215.10 kids, plus tax.
Seems like the most solid deal based on corporate rate that I have dug up. What do you think? Good, bad, average? Any suggestions to find better deals?
Oh, and WOW, the huge discounts for Florida residents!!!! My goodness!"
Any ideas about better ticket prices?
I have one of those (semi ) waterproof thingys that hang around your neck, can be bought at resort store. I use it for my cash, gift cards I use for dining/drinks, and kttw card. I leave my cell phone in room safe. If I bring my camera, I'd use the poolside locker.The beach club pool is so big, what do you do with your stuff? Room key a few dollars a cell and camera? Just leave it in a beach bag laying on a chair?
DOH!!! That is a fantastic suggestion, and one that my family uses! We have a couple of waterproof pouches- they are actually pretty watertight. We either got them online or at an outdoor store like LLBean or EMS. Google "water wallets"I have one of those (semi ) waterproof thingys that hang around your neck, can be bought at resort store.

We arrive Thursday... I don't know what be your guest is.
Thanks for the info about the beach club lockers. When we are at a smaller pool I can always see my thigs or bag on a chair.. And I saw you all talking about chairs and seeing the map I wondered what people DS with valuables! Are the
Lockers hard to come by?
We are arriving ON DH's 40th birthday. We have been tellin our DS that we are not, no way goi to DisneyLAND this Christmas an just revealed to him that it's because we are going to DisneyWORLD and leave Thursday! He is so excited as I don't think he remembers going when he was 3.
Because we are Disneylad regulars I am trying to remind myself not to get overwhelmed ... But the sheer punt of ground to cover in 6 days seems exhausting. I am hoping The Beach Club is what makes the trip feel relaxing!
