    This is the official pre-trip report that now supercedes any other pre-trip thing I may have written in a previous year during which I did not go to Disney World.

    So...

    We have a villa, flights, and car rental already sorted.

    And now...


    *drum roll*


    We have Disney tickets. :mental:

    Just spoke to a lovely CM named Mary who was very helpful and sorted out 14 Ultimate passes for us. She also told me all about how I should book restaurants in advance and then made a note on the booking that Auntie Jo is a first time visitor and told me all about where to get a special button for her in the parks.

    I spoke to a real CM :mental:

    Well it will be when the envelope comes with the ears on it - that one of the reasons I love buying from Disney direct - sad I know but there you have it :D

    I have the confirmation email with the code and the bit I need to print and take with me to exchange for the passes. I presume that's at any park? It will be Magic Kingdom though. :mental:

    If you look on the first page of the thread Skywatcher posted the link. 14 day ultimate passes for the price of 7 day premiums. Book before end of March this year and use before 31 December this year. :D
