    We are looking at trying to afford to take the children to disney florida.

    We have to go during school holidays as i am a teacher

    Thinking end of july/beg of august.

    my son is autistic , do they offer ride access passes?

    I've got a quote booking direct with disney staying at a moderate resort with disney dining for 14 days for approx 4200. This is without flights but includes disney tickets.

    Ideally we will get tickets to all the parks, universal etc, and stay on I-drive but it seems to be so so expensive.

    any tips?

    who to book with?

    I'd try and do the last 2 weeks of the school holidays though, as you typically avoid the US school holidays then, so it makes the parks quieter.

    my husband has the last week of july and first week of august off work every year as his place closes, sowe would probably have to go then.possibly adding another week to have 3 out there?

    where is the best place to book?

    have searched so far with thomson, disney themselves, virgin and thomas cook.

    Just be aware of all the possible accommodation options - on Disney, a fairly expensive hotel, a cheaper motel, or a villa, etc.

    Definitely don't book through Virgin holidays to start with they are always more expensive!! You might also be better booking flights and hotel seperately too. Maybe consider Airbnb for your accommodation as you will probably be able to get a villa with a private pool which im sure your kids would love!
