This is a good deal. Almost as cheap as the DVC-only anniversary deal that happened this past winter/spring.

Actually, this is a puny "come-on" discount. As frequent Disney visitors know, Disney prices its tickets to encourage visitors to stay many days at Disney. Once you've paid for 3 days, there's little extra ticket cost to stay a week (they figure they'll make their money off you on food, lodging and souvenirs). So even if you book a six-day package with this offer, your total "savings" are only $75. There are MUCH better ways to save money on a Disney vacation package than $75 off regular prices. Heck, buying your tickets from Undercover Tourist and getting a deal on your hotel (even a daily code discount from one of the online travel agencies) will routinely save you more money than this.

What do you mean by Undercover Tourist? Is it legit?

Of course it's legit. Just google it. And if you have an AMEX card, look in your online "special offers" for an offer that will save you even more on tickets you buy from them (also use the special mousesavers.com link).

But the real savings will be in your hotel cost, and shopping around for airfare. The odds that "Southwest Vacations" is going to be the best deal are low. This is a run-of-the-mill promotion. Nothing to see here.

if anyone could give me an opinion I just booked our family of four to go to Disney staying at Pop Century 4 nights and 5 days with Dining Plan, park hopper, fast passes, and Memory Maker and paid roughly $4,500 that's including our flight from Pennsylvania. was this a good price?

Dinning plan and reservations, table service dinning is hard to get. we were 90 days out and most and all desired dinning was already booked. Disney takes reservations 180 days out. Book as early as you can. If all you have is counter service you are fine. But sit down books 180 days out.

we finished up booking in July and I still didn't get some of the reservations I just wasn't sure if we paid a good price or what

We just got back from Disney and stayed at Pop Century. I can give you more information if you want, but to summarize: 1) We didn't do the Disney Dining Plan and I ended up being glad we didn't, but it may depend on how old your children are and how much, and what different kinds of food, they will eat.. 2) We did the Memory Maker and we were very glad we did. 3) If you're just using Pop Century to sleep between trips to the park, it's fine but it's not particularly nice.

Seems like an overpriced vacation to me. Wait for a free Disney Dining deal, stay in a moderate resort (so you get the full dining plan for free) and stay at least 6 nights (because week-long tickets cost about the same as 3-day tickets, and free food makes for a nice vacation). Otherwise, Disney is a bad deal. That said, lots of people like to spend lots of money there, so who am I to judge?

BTW, for your flights, if you can get yourself to either PHL or BWI, there are some astonishingly good airfare deals to Orlando these days. It's often only $128 roundtrip -- maybe less if you're willing to fly Frontier or Spirit (I'm not). Also price the airfare to Tampa, which can sometimes be even cheaper, and it's not much longer to drive.

we did get the free Dining Plan and our plane tickets round-trip were maybe $800, this is just our first time and I was unsure if I spend an average amount

It looks like you can book just tickets as well. From your link pick Orlando from the destinations drop down, then click on the activities selection and then click the search box. Decent pricing on park hopper tickets. (cheaper than most) Thank you!!

Sure seems like alot for pop century with free dining. I'm thinking if you did get free dining you would be closer to 2500+ 800 airfare. So around 3300-3500 or so.
To see if you truly did get free dining. Price your vacation without the dining plan and you should come to the same figure. If not you may want to call up and change your reservation as it rarely is worth paying for the dining plan.

Right. Also, when you book "free Disney dining" you have to stay at a moderate resort to get the full plan free. At Pop Century, only quick serve would be free (I suppose they'd let you pay something to upgrade to the full plan). Basically, it never pays to stay at a Disney budget resort if you can get free dining.
