First time trip next summer

So we have researched costs based on current flight prices from the UK and for 5 adults and 1 child. Villa, flights, car and tix for 2 adults 1 child comes in about £7500.

Hoping the flights don't get any more costly as the trip will become too expensive and we can't afford it. (currently at £880 pp)

Does anyone know if they generally go down in the New Year? Or will get more expensive?

We are planning to do Disney and Orlando Parks in 14 days and if we arent too tired drive down to tampa for a day.

Is this a realistic plan?

Busch Gardens is a great park in Tampa. I would try to do an overnight and visit Clearwater Beach while there and either a day at BG or visit Ybor city and the historical areas.

I did some research last year with holiday costs and noticed it was cheaper in January due to the sales but then it quickly went up the closer to Summer you got.

To give you an idea I booked in the Aug/Sept Sale for 1st-22nd May 2014 with BA LGW-MCO for £580 (1xAdult), the price today is £666, but can change daily. The next BA sale would normally start on Boxing Day, Virgin should be about the same time too.

Hi we have booked (2adults 2 children) for June 12th- 26th 2014 virgin fly drive LGW-MCO full size suv sat nav and platinum car insurance for £3000. Found a villa online to rent for £1000. Virgin do have a sale on boxing day as we booked this years holiday last boxing day this time we didn't want hassle to keep checking price and morning flight was already fully booked so didn't want to risk missing the day we want.
