    hi everyone
    we are a family of 7, mum, dad, 2 adult girls,2 adult boys and 1 - 11 year old girl ( the boss ). this is the first time we are going on a trip to Disney land, Orlando.we have paid for a package holiday with first choice, we are flying with Thomson and we are staying at the kissimmee site. we have booked a car from doller and are now trying to sort out what park tickets to get. we are not sure if we should buy an all in one ticket deal on line here in the uk, and if so what are the best sites to get them from , or should we buy them out there. we are going for two weeks starting end of may. please could someone give us some tips on what to do and what not do. thanks

    Hey Nigel great to see you here, please feel free to ask all those niggling questions you have and I'm sure someone here will know the answer



    I've always found the Disney UK special ultimate park hopper great value, it's usually 14 nights for the price of 7 and just gets you in everywhere without having to worry about whether you can go back on the same day and all that jazz.

    have a look here: Tickets | Passes | Walt Disney World Resort
    We have a specialist UK travel agent who can also help work out all the options

    we booked ours through attraction tickets direct, we found that they covered all parks disney univeral as well as shows airboat rides balloon flights etc, you also get a ticket and not just a bar code so it saves a little time at the entrance. we went for the first time last year and i got all my advice from secrets it wouldnt have been so easy if it waqsnt for secrets.

    Welcome to Secrets Nigel.

    Have a look at https://www.orlandoattractions.com/t...t/viewType/1/1 make sure you click UK guests only as the rates are better for the UK - a 14 day pass for Universal and Islands of Adventure is 85 for an adult

    Their 14 day Disney ticklets is also cheaper than the 7 day ticket at 216

    Kissimmee is quite a big area, there is no Kissimmee site that's like saying Oxford site or Liverpool site ( if you see what I mean :-) )

    It's very easy to drive out there and I'm sure you'll find your way around no trouble.

    I'm sure it will be the first of many trips for you as it's addictive and spoils you for anywhere else

    hello, this is our first time also, and it is a NIGHTMARE! We booked through Expedia, Delta cancelled at the last minute, rescheduling 35 hrs later, making us miss out on almost 2 days of DW. Expedia is trying to negotiate something, but noone seems to know what they are doing. Any suggestions from seasoned pros? thanks! mudman1

    argh how awful there are always terms and conditions which allow them to weasel out when it comes down to it but the key is to be 100% firm. You dont want to lose any days at all and demand that they find you another flight. There *WILL* be another flight they can find you but they'll always try and see if you'll give up first to save them the hassle. So, stick with it!
