Ok, me and my wife are planning a holiday at the end of September 2012 to florida for a week.
I know a week in Flordia isn't a lot of time (i've been a few times, but its my wifes first first).
but looking at some last minute trips, prices seem to be £400/500 each which includes a 3* hotel, flights and a car.
I've been thinking that we are going to do
1 day Seaworld
1 day Universal
1 Day Universal Islands of Adventure
2 days Disney hopper - Animal Kingdom and Epcot
2 days resting/shopping
I would love to do 2 weeks, which isn't so much extra for hotel/flights, but its spending money that pushes the price up a lot. I would like to do this as cheap as possible, I know its suppose to be a holiday of the life time, but I've been many times and almost want to cherry pick the best things to do.
Since we only went to Disneyland Paris back in Jan, we feel we only really need a couple of hours to go into the Magic Kingdom just to see the castle and do a couple of rides/evening show. Same really for the hollywood studios..(aka Star Tours!). Also since its only us with no kids, it means we can go pretty quickly...
I understand its usually £20 a day extra insurance charge for the car.
I'm not looking to book anything until a few weeks before we go since we want a last minute bargain and with the amount of hotels/flights (from Birmingham/Bristol) available, it doesn't seem worth booking in advance anymore for Flordia.
Regarding tickets, I'm thinking just to get a Magic you way combo topper and 2 day pass for universal. Just get them at the gates since I won't benefit from the big passes.
Any hints or tips
