Seeing as we own a villa in the Orlando area and with us also being DVC members, whenever my DW and I visit WDW, we only have to fund the air fares as our accommodation is "free". As such, it`s been quite a while since we have had to cost out a trip including accommodation etc., which I`m sure is what many of my fellow UK visitors do when planning a visit.
Some close friends of ours [2 adults, 2 children aged 13 & 5] are now in the planning stages of their first visit to WDW and have asked me for some help so I thought I would throw it out to you guys. [Unfortunately our villa is booked for their planned visit [July/August 2013] so I can`t offer them a good deal on our place ].
Which would you feel would be their most cost effective means of taking a two week holiday to WDW?
1. Book a package holiday with on-site accommodation inclusive of park admission passes for the duration of their stay AND [this hurts ], any available dining plan so they don`t have to worry about the cost of meals etc.
2. Book flights only and stay in a villa. This would obviously involve car hire costs and the purchase of park admission tickets etc.
3. Book flights and stay at one of the DVC resorts in say a studio....could they also get park admission and dining plan "thrown in" with this option?
4. Any other suggestions?
