have you looked at diy? we got 3adult 1 kid flight last year for 1200, that was with Delta

that price i quoted was for this year so 1400 for hotel would seem about right- if you add the tickets then you get free quick service dining too.

i was just having a look on the VH site, i always book everything separately.

only want direct flights too brit, i might wait and see if i can get a companion flight as ive got 96000 miles burning hole in my pocket lol

Mick it's only 35000 miles to get a 'free' ticket so why don't you use them?

These flights very rarely happen on school holidays - it's a pain :thumbsdown:

Mick, we are having to pay well over 2000 for flights at Christmas becasue we have to go during school holidays, it's just not fair is it! This is for two adults in economy!!!

Very expensive sounds to me :(
I would look for flights 1st then do the rest later your always gonna find a hotel and car easy enough just concentrate on flights. Are you desperate to fly with virgin they are pricing themselves out of the market in my opinion :)

i always get flights 1st ann, most important i think....normally a villa will cost minimum 800-900 so might go with that again, just wanted a stay onsite, might just do a few days and the rest in a villa...car im not worried about at all

We always do a diy never been able to get as good a price except for last November when it was dirt cheap infect we only paid 690 for the 2 of us flight hotel which was one of my favorite hotels on I drive and car we couldn't believe it :)
I get the flights then work from there but I also prefer going into Sanford which isn't everyones favorite but we like it.

I think that you would like POFQ, the grounds are lovely and very peaceful for a Disney resort. We stayed there when Ty was about 9. Riverside is nice too but more active! That should be during free dining too!

ive only ever flown chartered once with brittannia in 02, they were crud...but i understand thompsons and first choice are good...i prefered sanford tbh got thru so much quicker...think i might try one of those two, as long as the flights are direct :)

ive been looking at those two for a while trish but i think it just puts the price up way too much

That`s very true Mick.
It`s all well and good earning those FC miles and companion seats etc. however you really are restricted regarding using them for your preferred dates.

Nope that was for the 2 of us :)
Thomsons are brilliant we have had some super flights with them and in my opinion they are leaving virgin standing for customer service I know others feel different but they are very helpful and nothing has been to much trouble for them best of all premium is only about another 189 onto :)
