    To get a rough idea of the cost for Feb 2010, what sort of percentage do you think I should add to the 2009 prices? Anyone any thoughts on this?
    Thanks. :)

    rough guess I would say 5 - 10 % based on what I am seeing at the moment - but that is very rough

    Thanks, I was thinking that maybe 10% would be a good starting point.

    Would that be your anniversary visit, or a pre-visit then? :D

    Remember free dining, as attractive as it sounds, it chaos. Doesn't it require rack rate on the room too? :unsure:

    I would really like to see some figures that compare rack rates and free DDP with an AP rate, or other rate on a room, and DDE discounted food.

    It would be very interesting to see how much was really saved with the free DDP.

    I miss the simple days of strolling into a travel agents, sitting in a nice comfy chair, telling them when you wanted to go and having them find the best deal for you..... :sigh;
