  • I have to tell you that the price you have quoted for a 3 bedroom condo for 11 nights is a good deal. Don't let anyone talk you out of that! I checked with my own timeshare to see and the cheapest I could get for that time was $1500 for a 2 bedroom that has a pull-out sofa in the living room. Plus you want a condo because of the full kitchen and laundry room, etc. That is a great deal for 11 nights, barely more than $100/night......Anyways everything else in your plan looks good too!

  • Those entertainment books have, Coupons for: food, hotels, vacation packages deals, car rental deals, and other things. I have gotton free oil changes and lots of free stuff from the book and its only about $20.00 or a few dollars more. You would have the time to order it and get deals in time. Try to google it, like entertainment book. It's great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • We leave for Disney for 12 nights next Friday! I ordered the entertainment book and am hoping it gets here in time. Check eBay for lots of good buy 1 get 1 coupons for attractions. There is also a vendor that sells dirt cheap Universal tickets. We're military so we get HUGELY discounted WDW tickets. Message me if you want links to the Universal tix. And HAVE FUN!

  • Forgot to add, you could add more days to your WDW ticket instead of the Hopper option.
