I do have a local bed & breakfast who has agreed to swap one night there with someone who can give me a night's stay near Orlando. You could add a second night with a discounted bedandbreakfast.com card from Costco. The
B & B is in "horse country" outside of Louisville and you could get tickets to Churchill Downs, Slugger Museum, maybe schedule it during Thunder over Louisville (free),.... Of course, the Orlando hotel/B & B would have to agree with the exchange. Any takers?


The only success we have had with national hotels is Drury Inns. We do see some success when requesting them from local hotels.

How did you get or request it in short notice. The pre-qualification wouldn't allow me to do it for less than a month or 6 months.


You have to request the Disney tickets at least 60 days prior to your event but no more than 60. Last year we received our approval about a week after we requested and the tickets came a couple of weeks before the event.

Has anyone had success with Southwest Airlines? We have applied 2 years in a row and have not had any luck. Feeling discouraged.....

Sportshabit- I received the 4 one day park hopper passes from Disney this year. You have to submit early. I did it in December and heard back the week between Christmas and New Years that it was a yes. I still have yet to receive the tickets in hand though but i still have a month before my event.

I will look into Inn at Little Washington. Thanks for reminding me of that place.
