We had an amazing trip to Disney World a few weeks ago. Disney is expensive no matter how you slice or dice it but I think it was all worth the pain and suffering. We decided to go to Disney World during the off-season so that we could save a bit on hotel and flight cost and boy was that a good idea. We scored a great deal on our flights through Southwest and stayed at the B-resort on Disney property. We didn't love the B-resort because it wasn't really children friendly so we wouldn't really recommend it for family with little kids.
We bought our tickets online and also purchased the memory maker. We were able to take so many awesome pictures with Disney photographers all over the resorts the entire time that we were there. I highly recommend memory maker because you will get great family photos without having to compromise on quality.
We flew out on a Wednesday after work and didn't get into Orlando until very late that night. Everyone was tired but we were all excited for this fun adventure
