New to site again, cost saving tips please


Earning My Ears
Feb 10, 2000
I have essentially been away from the DIS since our last trip May 2000. I can't even count the hundreds of hours I have spent on this site. Now, almost two years later the site has dramatically changed.

Anyhow, I need a abreviated updates on Mousecoupons, and what is the best way to save on hotels, tickets etc. My DC expires in 20 days and I don't plan to renew until we pick a time for our next trip.

Kids, currently 10 and 12. Plan to go to Disney in 2003, April, (Easter is mid month.), May or maybe the fall. Length 10-14 days. Hope to stay onsite this time and spend a few days, maybe 3 doing Universal, Seaworld etc. Will proably fly and rent a car for the entire trip. We would like to stay at least part of the time at WL, and spend some time enjoying the hotels and onsite activities.

Tickets, I am aware of the Canadian deal with time limits, only 7 day passes. All other tickets do not expire, is this still correct?

Hotel, Do I have to book directly with WDW to get a DC room discount? Dreams seems pricey. A DC discount is not guaranteed and I
have to call a few months ahead of time to attempt to get this?

Parks, Now EE days are gone, does the same pattern of stats apply to busiest/slowest days for each park. The price of Enights seems to have dropped from $25.00, ???

Sorry for the on slaught of questions but I feel a little lost on the site again.

Welcome back. There have been alot of different dicounts out this year. There is a current discount for Canadians on hotels, an Amex discount for hotels, an AP discount, any of these are a better savings then DC. The universal tickets through CAA are $106 CDN for a 3 day pass that never expires. We are using the entertainment card for a discount at HRH at universal. The mousesavers web-site has lots of great discount ideas.
