    Hi barryheffron

    I CAN beat this like for like and get it under £5000 for you saving you over
    £225 - I can also throw in a nice freebie which I'll tell you about when you book :)

    I can't get it back to T Cook prices but for the last year at least we suspect they were selling at a loss to get cash in

    I've sent you a PM - Its the last 1 bedroom suite left

    Hi ionap
    I CAN beat this like for like by a little over £100 
    Disney hasn't released Free Dining for 2021 yet - we don't know what hotels/rooms will be included - also dates as your date 23/9 wasn't included in this years offer (Dates were - Valid for arrivals most nights 6/27/20 – 6/28/20, 7/5/20 – 7/7/20 and 8/29/20 – 9/8/20)- with the launch of Star Wars its getting tighter and tighter 
    If its a benefit you really want then you need to wait until its released and then if it suits book the best deal ASAP

    I've sent you a PM - Its the last 1 bedroom suite left

    We would prefer rooms with balcony. The price above only include one of the rooms with a balcony, the other one doesn't seem to have one.

    Hi purcel
    I CAN beat this definitely - I can do it for £2387 like for like all booked with TUI 
    I can see there is only 1 room with Balcony left so you'd need to upgrade the other room to TWIN ROOM WITH LIMITED SEA VIEW AND BALCONY at same price as online +£63.70 (+£3.19pppn)
    The Half Board plus seems to be only for certain dates -  If you're staying during any of the following dates, you'll have an upgrade to Half Board Plus for those days. This means you'll get self-served local beer, wine and soft drinks included with dinner:
    15th September 2018 to 3rd October 2018, 1st May 2019 to 29th May 2019 and 16th September 2019 to 8th October 2019.
    So i dont know if they haven't updated with this years dates but ???? i dont think you'll get it as it stands 

    I've sent you a PM

    Just booked my holiday with Matt after posting on here yesterday. Have spent a lot of time looking for our holiday (and also have spoken to different travel agents) and he has managed to beat them all by offering a £300 discount for our group, which no one else has come close to. 
    Thanks Matt & thank you money saving expert!
