Well I'll be in Orlando for business in June.. and it's been a while since the kids got a holiday so I decided to pull the trigger and book a vacation for the family at WDW.
I'm still undecided if to stay on property or not.. vs hotwiring a hotel offsite. Torn there.. I know the arguements but having a hard time pulling the trigger
Disney had some promos going, so the room-only rates are a bit cheaper, but with a family of 5 I'm still stuck with a family suite or 2 rooms which makes the call harder. Right now I have a value room booked at Sports for an avg of only $87 a night, which I'd be content with even tho I know it's not a great place. But having to pay for 2 rooms doubles it and makes the off-site comparison so much harder. I could book a 4star or higher on hotwire for $95/night.
But either way.. looks like the kids will get 5 days in the parks. Seriously considered doing Universal this trip... but at roughly $100/head to do it, and not being 'enough' alone to make Universal the focus of the trip.. I think we'll pass.
Uni/Seaworld have great looking offers if you plan to stay there the whole time.. but I don't think I'd want to spend more then 2 days there.
I guess the answer is just go more often then the choices are less stressfull
