Okay I am a little bit confused ...after hearing a rumor about 2 months ago that 2007 room only rates were available I called WDW and reserved a room only at POP. During that phone conversation I was told that 2007 package rates were not available but nothing was said about the ressie has far as changing rates or paying any additional, etc. I was just told to watch for package rates in August. Then this weekend I heard that ticket prices were going up - so I decided to go ahead and get my tickets through the Mousesavers link, Undercover tourist. DH and I decided to get a ten day, hopping, water park & more options no expiring ticket. Then Sunday I learned that the package rates were out. I immediately went to the website and ran a package search. The price I was quoted for a room and ticket package (no dining plan) was about $300.00 more than the room rate and tickets I already have. The extra perks included in the package do not seem to justify this difference. Am I missing something? Did I do the right thing? I understand that I can always change to a package to include the dining plan but even that does not seem to justify the extra $300.00? No with all the hype surrounding ticket prices and package availability I am questioning my decisions and wonder if I am doing something wrong? Why is everyone so excited about the package rates...when they seem so much higher. Any info you all could provide would be so appreciated!
