Eleisurelink.com's Orlando special has not changed in two years and we've been covering it regularly. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," must be their motto.
And you won't be either, broke that is, by spending from $343 a person for roundtrip airfare from New York or Chicago and a five-night stay at the Sleep Inn Maingate near the entrance to Disney World. To stay longer will cost you $18 per person per night.
But that alone would not make it one of the most popular U.S. deals that it is. But what does, is a five-day car rental without a limit on mileage, shuttle service to Disney Parks, daily continental breakfast, all of which are included in the package, which is good for departures between now and December 15. (Airport taxes are, unfortunately, not included.) As a bonus, you get a free discount coupon book that can save you some money on tickets to major Orlando attractions--Sea World, Wet 'n Wild, Kennedy Space Center--to name a few, and even some neighboring restaurants. If you need more information on Orlando theme parks, visit the Orlando Tourist Bureau website.
So why not go meet the Mouse, if you haven't already, and have some fun--with or without the kids. Here's a sample listing of add-on prices per person for departures from other major U.S. gateways:
