My wife and I are working on vacation plans for this year and we've got several places we'd like to go, but don't want to spend a lot of money.

Our choices are:

Disney - Orlando
San Diego

I'm also looking into some all-inclusive resort stays at a Sandals resort.

I was browsing Ebay today and noticed they have a "travel" section, so looking in there I found some great deals.

Disney Orlando for instance...

for $95.00 and 90 minutes of my time, I can get 4 nights in a luxury condo and 2 tickets to any Disney Park.

Those park tickets alone are worth $140-150. I've been to Disney 2 times, and the cheapest hotel was $350 for 5 nights.

What are your opinions on timeshare presentations....

I've sat through one, about 5 years ago in Tenn. I always say no and won't be talked into buying anything....

Sure why not, as long as there is no minimum to buy, no down payment and you just walk away afterwards. Why not? Plus you get to learn a bit about Timeshares. I assume that's what it is for. Those are the ones I typically see. Before signing anything just be sure to check the fine print. Enjoy your vacation!

Why not do yourself and your wife a favour and explore somewhere out of your country. Become one of the 7% that have a passport.

Do you not watch south park?

I don't know about the US, but in the UK if you go to a travel agents and heckle with them (and pay in cash) you can usually get a great deal. I watched a program where a couple had £800 for their honeymoon and wanted to go to somewhere in Greece, the travel agents first offer was about £750 and in the end they managed to get it down to about £450 including flights and whatnot.

we've decided to go to Disneyland in California.

Neither of us have been to Cali.

We're going to visit the 2 Disney Parks, Universal and take one day to drive to San Deigo and go to the Zoo.

We have 2 days for site seeing... Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Mulholland Dr, Sunset Strip, etc.

I got a great price online... booked it through Priceline.

Roundtrip Air, Nice hotel Suite and rental car for under $1,000.

I know, I've heard some of the "horror" stories about Priceline, but so far so good, I've confirmed my reservations, actually got decent flight times that I wanted on non-stop flights from Ohio to Cali, so from here on out
wish me luck.
