I need some opinions here. I am in full WDW trip planning mode for next summer. I have having trouble deciding what I want to do. I have done the math and one deal is cheaper, but the more expensive way (not by much) is EASIER…easier is some time better.
Option #1: Rent points and get EVERYTHING seperately. This is a cheaper way to go, but harder for me as I am saving for everything at once. I have a year to slowly pay this trip off.
Option #2: Get a package with WDW and more than likely get free DDP. I can have everything neatly in a package and pay it when I can instead of getting stuck and trying to do it all seperately.
I will save a few hundred with renting points, but could also save that same thing with the free DDP. If I book the package, I will stay at POFQ and if not, I will stay at SSR. Of course the resort is nicer with points, but POFQ is our favorite otherwise, so that’s no big. We are one the DTD boatway regardless so that’s covered no matter which way we do it. The transportation isn’t better at either place, so that doesn’t even factor in. Food options are the same as far as I am concerned too. We LOVe POFQ’s food court and had no issues with SSR either.
I am leaning toward the package only for the simplicity of it. I like the idea of having the entire trip (excluding spending money and airfare) in one for easy payments. Thoughts??
