My son and I have never been, and my husband hasn't been since 1985 or 86....although we're at Disneyland all the time.
So - after looking at some of the resorts, I have the say the Rock n Roll, Music, etc themed resorts have no interest for me at all. They look too sterile and modern and plain, and well, blah. I'd like recommendations with pretty grounds, in all price price ranges and with closer/faster/easier access to the parks themselves. I heard that AKL is beautiful but way out there and the bus system takes forever. We're flying in, so no car. Tell me what you like or don't like about the hotels!
If there are any non-Disney hotels that are close by with easy access we'd be open to those too.
And - what other airports are within 1-2 hours of Orlando? Wondering if we'd save enough by flying into one of them vs Orland itself to make it worthwhile.
Finally - we'll only be doing Disney on this trip. How many days should we plan and still allow time to explore outside the parks, take breaks, etc? I'm guessing at least 2-3 for MK, 1-2 for Epcot, 1-2 for Animal Kingdom....any suggestions? Son is 15, so we're much less restricted than a couple with young kids.
Thank you so much!!!!
