Greetings everyone. This is my first post although I have been a silent observer for a couple years. I need your help and I know someone out there can provide an answer. I am in the early stages of planning our trip for October 2009. We [Myself, DH, DS12, DD9] will be spending 9 nights. The kids have decided they would like to stay at Pop Century. I am leaning towards NOT doing the dining this time as all those reservations add too much structure for my liking. I LOVED having everything paid for last time with the dining plan but the fact that we need reservations so far in advance makes vacation not seem like vacation. We will spend 6 days in the Disney parks, a day at Sea World and a day at Universal. Like everyone else I am hoping for a code or some sort of deal. I don't want to wait too long and not get a room. Should I book a room-only or Magic Your Way with tickets? I wonder what happens if I book a package and get lucky enough to receive a room only pin? OR if I book room only and then there is a package deal like now (Buy 4 get 3 free)? What do you suggest I do? I am letting this stress me out too much already. I will gladly take any advice you can throw my way. Thanks to you all----and I LOVE DISboards!
