    Thank you.

    because we didn't do any kind of group booking, we all just booked individuallly, we aren't entitled to the free events, but im going to try and get them, once i have everyone's booking details.

    i might actually leave that job to one of the ushers, he's like king of the barter people! haha!

    thanks for the advice!

      Expedia usually breaks it down per person. The total for 5 nights for 2 adults with just hotel is around $1600 (on Expedia) and air fare has been around $300-400 per person so if you add $1600 plus airfare it comes out to $1100-1200 per person. I think some of the girls on here are quoting per night (which is for two adults and not just one person) and not per person. Also some of the girls on here are from Canada and even Europe and prices may be a little higher for airfare etc. so when you add airfare and divide by number of nights that's how they get larger numbers. For me we pay $338/night (for two people) which is only $169 per person per night but they have to purchase airfare separately. Hope this helps :) Also you have to be careful with some 3rd party vendor travel sites because sometimes even though you put 3 or 4 people for the trip itinerary, they're charging you for all flights BUT for only two people for the hotel and you may have to pay for the extra people (over two) when you check-in. So what may seem like a great deal on some websites really is not.

        Yeah im from Europe so we're paying more.

        it worked out a LOT cheaper for us though to get online package deals to the MP, rather than to book direct, but that's just us. for that we forfeited the group incentives (like the free events) unfortunately.
