Planning a Walt Disney World Vacation with CAA!

We've been talking for years about taking our kids to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.  It was decided long ago that when our youngest child would turn 3-years old, we would take all the kids to Walt Disney.  But suddenly my husband got the itch, and we started talking about visiting Disney sooner.  I can't believe we will be going this winter: with our 5 kids, 2-7-years old!

I have to admit that I like to prepare well in advance for vacations.  For example, I prefer to have passports, airfare, accommodation and park tickets ready at least one month in advance.  That's why I think that CAA is a great option when booking advance Walt Disney World park tickets.  To me, this means that I will already have the physical park tickets before leaving on vacation, and that my young family and I will not have to line up at the park gates to make this purchase.  (5 little kids just don't do well in line ups!)
Amber Russell, CAA "Magical Vacation Planner"
CAA put me in touch with their "Magical Vacation Planner", Amber Russell, whose dedicated role is to help families plan their perfect Disney vacation.  From airfare, accommodation, park tickets, meals, transfers and more, Amber can arrange this and more.  Amber stated that many people find that planning their own Disney vacation is overwhelming, and that's where she comes in!  And with a savings of 10-35% off a vacation package, this definitely sweetens the deal.
I spoke to Amber at length and asked her all my Disney-related questions.  She was quite knowledgeable and provided useful information.  In regards to Disney park tickets, I learned that it is much less expensive to purchase multiple day Disney park tickets.  For example, a 4-day Disney park pass would be cheaper than   4 single Disney park passes.  I was shocked to learn that the savings works out to about $100 per family member, which would save my family of 7 about $600 in savings (my 2-year old gets into the park for free)!  

In addition, CAA does offer slightly discounted Disney park ticket rates.  Although non-CAA members can purchase Disney park tickets, there is an added savings if you use your CAA membership card when making the purchase!  This works out well for us, as we are longtime CAA members.  CAA sells up to 10-day Disney park tickets.

To book Walt Disney World park tickets via CAA, it's as simple as walking into your local CAA office!  All you have to know is how many days you want to visit Disney, how many kids and adults will be going, and whether you want a Park Hopper pass or any other add-on options, such as the water parks.  It takes just a few minutes for a CAA representative to programme the Disney park tickets to your exact specifications.  And what I like best: you leave their office with the actual tickets in hand!      

Are you looking to book a Disney vacation this winter too?  Amber Russell can be reached at 1-866-310-9388, ext 6713.  Or you can e-mail Amber here

  2. We can't wait to go to Disney with our son! He's 18 months now and I'm already thinking of taking him. I've been to Disneyland twice before kids and I loved it both times.

  4. Yes CAA does so much more than come to your aid when in crisis with your car. I remember going to Florida and using some of their discounts offered. I bet there are many that are not even aware of this.

  9. Great post! I would love to take my kids to Disney one day and I have no clue where I would even start planning. It's nice to know that companies like CAA have incentives and go-to personnel.

  10. I didn't even know that CAA had Disney Specialists! As a family who frequents Disney often I do most of the planning myself but it is time consuming and sometimes stressful if I have lots of other things going on in my life. So a CAA Disney Specialist would definitely be helpful if I could just pass along the "must dos" to them and let them figure out scheduling for me ;)
