Hey all....re SOG as a military contractor do you qualify as DOD as stated below?
My wife and I were looking at maybe hitting Disney World for two days following our NCL cruise in January. However, tickets are expensive! Looks cheaper to make our cruise a 4 day + 3 day back to back than to hit Disney after getting off our cruise.
Right now it's looking like $352 just for the tickets. $272 for a hotel for two days. And about $100 for a rental car to get us from Miami to Orlando. Haven't figured out food or airfare differences yet versus doing the round trip to/from Miami.
O-4 thru O-10, CW-4, CW-5, Active and Retired DoD Civilians, Foreign Military assigned to a U.S. Military installation only, DoD Contractors assigned to a U.S. Military installation only.
Although you're sailing out of Miami might be worth your while to check into the cruises offered out of Port Canaveral to combine with WDW, an hour+ down the road.
I'm one of those disney nuts we've stayed @ the Contemporary Resort and Bay Lake Towers many times and never get enough of the view of the magic kingdom - as noted by the pic i took one year that serves as my avatar. We've enjoyed all our visits, ranging from the values to deluxe resorts.
OP sign up for info on WDW site, sometimes pin codes are issued at great discounts (up to 40% off room rates) but not so much lately...moreso package deals. I wouldn't be surprised to see a free dining package or some form of a complimentary disney gift card promo released for January. The rates for 2013 just came out, the deals will follow.
