As long as I can afford to stay on property (preferably at the Grand) I will. Period. The conveniences and the total immersion is worth it to me. It may cost more, but is worth every penny. The theming, close walking distance, package delivery, the personal safety factor, and above all, that 'Disney' touch in customer service. A word of caution though; for those of you who are thinking of a 'one night splurge' in conjunction with your offsite stay, be careful because you may just find that you NEVER want to stay offsite again. That's what happened to DH & I a few years ago when we spent a 'last night' at the Grand, and what happened to my BFF when she & I went in February for our '2 crazy girls trip'! She'd never stayed onsite, fretted about the cost when we booked our stay, and shouted 'Now I get it!' after the first night!
