    Honeymoon Booking

    Where is the best place to book a all-inclusive honeymoon package online? I prefer something in Florida, possibly Orlando. She has never been and I think that everyone needs to go, at least, one time. I was also thinking about somewhere in the Carolinas. Myrtle Beach is a no go. I have already been there and it was very boring to me. If all else fails, Gatlinburg is an option due to it's proximity.

    I would like to find something online that would cover the hotel and everything and even tickets to attractions if possible. Any and all help would be appreciated. I'm looking for September 22-26th.

    IF you are convinced that you want to go to Orlando, then I'd troll the Disney sponsored sites, the packaging available from the provider will give you the best all in one stop coverage of lodging, tickets etc.

    This is good start, http://www.magicalgetaway.com

    If you want to roll with the punches and cobble together a package then try Expedia, Hotels.com or Orbitz for lodging. Tickets for events can also be bought around the Orlando area from 3rd party vendors.

    Gatlinberg... I used to go there when my wife was at Miami, we'd rent a cabin and do a LOT of hiking, everything else there is awash in cheese IMO, but the time you are targeting will also probably give you some nice color at the higher elevations, so the time of year is right, but I'd look for a cabin because that's way more romantic and peaceful than a town full of tourists and their kids.

    What kind of all-inclusive are you looking for? I am sure most places in Orlando will offer rooms and ticket packages for Disney or Universal. If you are looking for a all-inclusive with food, alcohol, and lodging combined I don't know of a place that does that in the US outside of Vegas. You may want to try somewhere in Mexico or a Sandals in the islands. Unfortunatly those can get expensive.

    Thanks WOY, I'll check that site out. The thing with Gatlinburg is that everyone and their brother goes there for honeymoons and vacations. I have been once when I was a kid and drove through there several times. I don't have much interest in it. I like to do stuff when I'm on vacation. I just don't think sitting in a cabin would do it for me. I can sit in the house at home.

    Just a room for the week and tickets would be suffice. The only thing I have came up with for Orlando in on Disney's actual site. It seems a bit much considering what it is. Alcohol doesn't matter as she doesn't drink. I'll drink a beer or 3, but that's about it. Lodging and tickets basically.

    For a honeymoon, the important thing is the room. You might not want to spend much time outside of it the first couple days.

    I plan to take care of that the night of the wedding and the next day.

    I used to live 50 miles from it. Back then, when I was making small bucks, it was a fun little getaway to visit once or twice a year. I can't imagine driving hundreds of miles just to go to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, though.

    I always preferred driving past Gatlinburg and into the park. I love the view from Newfound Gap. That I would drive hundreds of miles to see.

    Here's a Smoky Mountains webcam that provides the next best thing.

    Meh. It's all the same when the lights are off.

    I'll throw out the Asheville, NC area as an alternate. Might be too early to get some of the fall color, but it should be quite nice that time of year.

    I'll also suggest Charleston, SC. Late September is ideal - the horrific heat & humidity have subsided by then, but it's still warm enough that you can get to the beach. Plenty to see & do around Charleston. All-inclusive isn't the way to go, though. The fun in Charleston is getting out & about.

    My wife booked all of the hotels for our wedding trip and made the reservations under her name. As a result during the trip it was if I had taken her last name with the marriage.
