We just did this in May 2010. We have AP’s, so I did not want to buy tickets. You can get around that honestly. The only people that have to buy their tickets are the dancers, but family memebers will come and want the discounted tickets also. When the teacher puts in the order, all tickets are lumped together, so they do not know that you did not get any for your dancer. Hope I have not confused you. I will tell you that the rooms they offered were not discounted for the group, they just give the teacher hers for free. Our teacher gave up her room to assist finanically strapped students. I found it was cheaper to book my own room using an AP discount and add the CS plan. The food vouchers that they sell the groups are not a very good deal. We had a great time, the girls performed in DTD, and took a class with one of the disney dancers.
