Not all packages are created equally. There are a few things to consider before buying. These generally include budget, the length of your vacation and the age, activity level and interests of each person going on the trip. These are the basic considerations that will inform your selections for your Disney World vacation packages.

Other considerations include deciding you would like to do at Walt Disney World and where you would like to stay. Vacation packages can include accommodations on or off the grounds, meals and special experiences. All-inclusive packages offer all of the above.
