    A consultant friend of mine asked me to post this question on here...
    I know you are on some loops, and I'm looking for a Disney achiever that is only taking 3 people instead of 4. Not sure if there is such a situation, but I figured it can't hurt by asking. Kind of a long involved story, but it's really wreaking havoc on the joy of going to Disney because if I don't find someone who has an extra spot, I"m not sure my niece can take her one year old with us, it's just crazy.

    Please, let me know and I'll put you in touch with her.

    I was going to say a 1 year old at Disney is free, they get into the parks for free and they fly for free. So she sholdn't have to even be bought in, but even if she was it sounds like she is just looking for a free way to get her in.

    I don't think she was looking for a "freebie". She tried to buy her in but was told she couldn't because she's not HER child. At any rate, she figured it out. Thanks anyway!

    Right, buy-ins extend only to the Consultant's own children, so if she is bringing her niece as a guest, she can't buy in her niece's daughter. Who are the other two guests?

    Might be worth asking HO what would happen if the baby just "tagged along" with these parameters. No airfare cost, no park ticket costs. If you wanted a bassinet in the hotel room, that might be extra, but the baby also wouldn't eat all that much. Depending on age, she might still be on baby food.

    I remember reading on the information that whoever you bought in had to be your "income tax dependent" which would have made my granddaughter not eligible to be bought in. I didn't earn Disney so it became a moot point.

    Why would they do that? They pay the same whether your guest is a dependent or not, I don't understand that rule at all. I have a friend who's a director who is single, earns the trips and "sells" her second "person" (i.e., guest) to the highest bidder. People who hardly know her get to go on the trips for way less than it would cost them,she usually sells it for what her taxes would cost her when they 1099 us at the end of the year. Someone got to go to Atlantis for like $500 or something three years ago, someone else when to London for a song compared to what it would really cost. HO has never questioned her "guest". So why wouldn't they let you buy in your grandkid?

    I am guessing that they don't let you buy in any one other than your dependents to keep people from taking a dozen others on the trip with them for the exact reason you just said, it is a bargain for the extras. But with the extra special things they do for us they wouldn't be able to if they had everyone bringing all those extra people.

    Yes that is the reason other wise consultants can't bring there own family. On the cruise i had to get an inside room cause too many people went on the trip .

    OMG are you kidding me???

    I am single ... I have an unemployed roomate who I claim as a dependent ... but I'd probably take my nieces with me, or other friends.

    So if I ever earn a trip, does this mean I can't take who I want to? Or would I have to go solo?

    The buy-ins have to be our dependents. The guests can be anyone we want them to be as long as it is not another consultant. So I can take up to three guests and then buy in my family weather it is one person or 10.

    So if you have 3 guests and you buy in children ( even up to 10 ) there is the extra expence of a room and hopper passes, and that is why when tooooooo many people take everyone they know on the trip. Like I said I a consultant almost couldn't even go on the cruise cause they had no rooms left. I had to get an INSIDE cabin not really fair but it was the only way I was able to go

    Just my personal opinion -- does your niece really want to bring a one-year old to Disney World??? I wouldn't just because of 1) the sheer number of people there 2) the baby won't remember anything 3) extra work of a baby 4) etc.....Again, just my opinion.
