Planning our first WDW trip and thought we were definitely doing a land only trip. But started talking about a land/sea trip. How expensive is it. I’ve searched the sites and have gotten the starting at prices. We would need a room for 4 and would like to go in the Spring and we don’t want a low budget room but couldn’t afford top of the line either. And we would be fine at one of the moderates for the land portion, not big on the value resorts and not enough $$$ for deluxes. Any thoughts, advice, etc?
Hi. I don’t have any information on the cruises, but wanted to reccommend Mousektrips to you. They are a Disney vacation Specialist travel agency. You can find their link on the home page. They can help you out with several scenerios with this vacation you have in the works.
Lat time I checked cruise prices for spring, the best deals can be found before or after the middle part of April. The prices really skyrocket if you look at going around “spring break” or school vacation times.
You also can always book you land and sea portion seperately. I don’t have expierence there, but have herd it can be much cheaper.
Disney cruises are very expensive. If you just want a cruise, I’d recommend going to vacationstogo.com. they are a discount cruise website.
We created our own Land Sea package. The way Disney originally set us up, was that the first 3 nights were at the parks, (keep in mind, one of those days you disembark for the ship, so you lose a day at the parks) and then the 4 nights on the ship.
What we did was book the 4 night cruise and then booked our land stay for 4 additonal nights after the cruise. Not only did we save money, but got another day to boot!
We used AAA for the cruise (a first for us, but saved money, more than the Expedia and other sites, and our AP for the land.
Thanks again for the advie. So I’m hearing AAA is the way to go, surprising they are cheaper than all these online trendy sites. And I can’t beleive a sea/land package wouldn’t work out to be cheaper than a do-it yourselfer, but guess Disney doesn’t need to work that out for their consumers.
Keep in mind, I did a lot of AP doscount searching to save a buck here and there. All that extra searching is where the savings show up.
