Why it's a deal: According to a recent search on Kayak, the lowest round-trip fare between New York City and Orlando is $179 with taxes for departures in early September (JetBlue).
For an additional $387, JetBlue's Magic Your Way package covers airfare as well as four nights' accommodations, a four-day Magic Your Way Base Ticket (valued at $240 per adult and $206 per child aged 3 to 9), a complimentary Disney Dining Plan (valued at $105 per person for a four-night package), and all taxes. The package is an even better value for those flying out of Austin, as round-trip fares to Atlanta in September start at $236 (Delta).
More: Additional nights at the All-Star Music resort start at $28 per person based on quadruple occupancy (two adults and two children ages 3 to 9). You can upgrade to other resorts; for example, add $40 for Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort or $184 for Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.
