Do a bit of negotiation, as most of the Florida Hotels will give you a deal if you haggle on the phone prior to making a reservation. It works really well with beach vacation booking in the Summer, the off season. Yes, nearly all hotels will honor you as a Florida Resident with a percentage off (20% discount rate is normal). We like to push for getting an extra night free, which works well if you are staying four or more nights. You can also get upgraded to a suite, that is very easy to get since it is not a cash discount. Hope this helps. The favorites are the beach vacations, as they offer the biggest deals and have so much For the Whole Family.
I have the recipe for the Disney Parade watching. Since it is winter and you are using your crock pot, please get the following items so you can make easy taco dip. It is perfect for when people pop over. Mix one lb ground beef, one purple onion, one jar salsa, and one full onion. Just the ticket for a Disney Christmas video party. Easy to make is what we like. This is it, the easy taco dip. I Crave this when we leave the Magic Kingdom or Epcot.
I love the deals at the Disney Springs Mall. Everybody is getting good with dealing with video these days and Disney is the perfect place to practice. Being in a location with all the wonderful Music and smiles and insures that you will produce a nice result. The best deals for Disney gifts is over at Downtown Disney westside.
