2016 Walt Disney World Vacation Packages

They are here! 2016 Walt Disney World vacation packages are available for booking right NOW!

Here are some quotes I put together this morning:

The Johnson family wants a fun, inexpensive vacation. Family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children ages 10 and 8). They plan 7 days/6 nights at a value resort in February 2016.  Pop Century is centrally located among the value resorts and this family has a good idea how they want to get around the parks, as it's not their first time visiting.  They booked 5 days of base tickets (one park per day) and no dining plan for $2,759.54

The Mancuso family (another family of 4) want a moderately priced vacation in May 2016 and are also planning 7 days/6 nights with 2 children about the same age as the Johnsons.  They like the Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter and have specifically requested the river view. They would like to check out more than one park per day and requested 5-day park hopper tickets. They have a hold on their reservation (no dining plan): $2,903.82 .

Last night, I received an email from the Steinbach family. They are planning their very first Disney vacation next May (2016) and want to make this trip extra special. Since both of their school-age children (12 and 7) are crazy about animals, they want to check out the Animal Kingdom Lodge with a savannah view. They also requested the 5-day park hopper tickets because they don't want to miss anything: $4,581.22 - They also don't want to think too much about meal planning, so they are considering adding the quick service dining plan; this would bring their vacation cost to $5311.17.

I also quoted a family of 8 (4 adults, 4 children) for a long weekend getaway/reunion over the Fourth of July holiday weekend in 2016. They want club-level access so they could take advantage of the great extras that come with staying not only at their preferred Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, but because it proved to be more valuable for their large party. Since they will spend more time just being together, they went for 2-day base tickets to visit the parks and will figure out their own dining arrangements. They are all driving in from different places and opted for the 2 Bedroom Suite-Club Level Access at the Grand Floridian. Remember, they will be splitting the cost among them and it's a real special event: $12,250.28

Some changes with 2016 packages:
Tiny increase in dining price (approx. $1 per Person/per night), and "kids can order an adult meal at a quick service location" tip is now official.

Final payments are now due 30 days prior vs. 45 days.

Visit www.espnwwos.com for more information.

And an important note:
Should Disney release a discount at any time after you've paid your deposit, you may absolutely take advantage of it. This is one of the big advantages to using a Travel Agent over booking with Disney direct: If you book direct, you will need to constantly check to see if your reservation is eligible for any discounts. You will need to personally watch for the discounts and call to apply them on your own. Book with a travel agent and that reservation is continuously monitored for discounts just for you! In many ways, you book with Disney your reservation is for their benefit, book with Hi Ho Vacations and we work on behalf of you, for your benefit. Get personalized, no-cost service from someone who KNOWS and LOVES Disney and regularly practices "pixie dusting" just for you!
