I know many of you have APs so this won't apply to you, but I thought I would share for those of you who are like me and make that one coveted trip every year or two. This year I found that going through Costco is a great option (in my case much better than going through Disney, getawaytoday.com, AAA, etc.), I always shy aways from these bundling options in favor of trying to find a better deal on my own but this one really seems to pay off. It bundles your ticket and hotel reservations (offers both DLR hotel and Good Neighbor hotel options. Update: My family stayed at Fairfield which has a parking fee as many Good Neighbor Hotels do and were pleased to find that it was already covered through our Costco travel package when we got there) and I found it came out the same or cheaper than buying each separately but it comes with some great extras, including: a $20 gift card, pins and lanyards for everyone in your group, and one premium character dining experience for everyone in your group (Update: this dining experience has a retail value of $43 per person which you may use at any restaurant in the parks, excluding World of Color dining packages and alcohol purchases. My family used this at Carthay Circle and was able to experience something that we otherwise would have never been able to afford. Also, thanks to a a post I read on Mousewait a while back I asked for a reservation at Carthay at around 9pm and requested a balcony table, this is one of the best ways to watch the fireworks. Relaxed, intimate setting with the fireworks music piping through the speakers, definitely seems to be, in my opinion, as much of a dining experience as character dining so it's a great alternative.) The extras in themselves add over a couple hundred dollars to the value in my case and, as I said, the cost of the hotel and tickets by themselves would have been more expensive, so they really did feel like extras, not like I was paying more to have them included in the package. If you're planning a trip I definitely suggest at least looking into this. I'm not sure if this is common knowledge but I just discovered it this year and wanted to share it with everyone in hopes that someone else can benefit. :)
