    We are currently going through a rough time as we're loosing Simon's mum to cancer :(

    Hubby has always wanted to do a star wars weekend so my wonderful parents have paid for flights for us to fly out 7th June, they wanted hubby to have something positive to look forward to when his mum goes.

    We have DVC points for one week but looking at a value for the first week. We wanted Disney so we can link our passes etc through MDE. We don't have the money to pay it all up front so looking to find somewhere we can pay deposit.

    We've looked at Disney direct but they were nearly £800 for a week at AS Resorts.

    Does anyone have any ideas of places to book?

    Lisa :)

    I am so very sorry to hear about Simon's Mother. :( I cannot help you with the hotel. I don't know much about booking with Disney. Our Wendy will though. She's a wizard at that stuff.

    My love to Simon, and you. :hug2:

    So sorry to hear about Simon's mum. Don't know if you can book through a US TA or not but I think you can. We do it all the time and and never pay more than a percentage up front. I think it is the first night.

    Have you tried Disney US site? you can force it to display US prices rather than UK so it'll be in $, but you only have to pay one nights deposit and the rest at check in I seem to remember,

    I've used a U.S. Agent for our next trip and we only had to pay a deposit of 1 night for our 7 night trip.
