    If by OKW you mean a DVC villa with two bedrooms, then you have a wonderful set up. There is ample space and two bathrooms. If you mean a studio? Whew. That would certainly be close quarters and yes, would require complete understanding of how things were going to work.

    It will probably be 2 weeks as he's from the UK.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    That's what I was thinking as well, but I thought at one time he'd mentioned even longer...

    Two weeks is a long time in close quarters

    You want an honest opinion? Don't do it..... Sharing one room with children is difficult enough.
    We've been on many short trips with various friends but we've always had separate bedrooms. I can't imagine not having any privacy for 2 weeks.
    If you can stretch to a villa at OKW that would be ideal. Or, as Shelly says, 2 rooms at a cheaper resort.

    I could do it for a long weekend. Maybe even a week depending on who it is. But 2 weeks? Nope

    As everyone has said everyone is different. We went on a villa holiday with my DSIL 5 years ago and our relationship with them hasn't been the same since, but we went away with my parents and I would go again with them tomorrow. I think the difference was with my parents we all did our own thing, there was no pressure to spend every waking second together infant I can only think of 1 full day we spent together (there were lots of other shorter pool times am hour here and hour there and a lunch or two) and it was really nice. If we are heading in the same direction great and we can go together but if we have different plans then it was just us saying ok catch you later.

    Yes this will be a two week trip! I was thinking about three weeks but that would have been in 2015

    We have decided to go for it. I know it's a huge risk but we want to go back!! lol

    We are booking it tomorrow evening.

    We are still unsure about booking the whole things through disney or to try and find cheaper flights.

    They have offered us return flights for £750 per person with Virgin, it's not the cheapest but not sure if it's worth the risk waiting until 330 days out to start looking.

    What does everyone else think?

    I don't mind not going direct. If it saves me money I am happy!

    Complete Orlando prices for the Hotel/dining plan and park tickets are the same price as Disney (bar a few pounds).

    As we have never heard of or used Complete Orlando we didn't feel it worth the risk for a few pound.

    Do they have access to the flights in advance like Disney does, because they maybe worth a try with flights too?

    Are they a reputable company? As I haven't heard of them myself.
