    Red Face Dutch Disney fan needs help

    I have posten this question earlier today but i can not vind it back, Please excuse me for possibly placing these questions twijfel.

    Hello Everybody, Please excuse my less than perfect Englisch but i live in The Netherlands so i am not used to speaking ore writing Englisch.
    We (my son of 6, my wife and i) are planning to visit Orlando but we have some questions on which we have not been able to find an answer yet, please help ;-)
    We are planning on visiting from 25 april 2014 to 09 May 2014


    - How crowded is it in Disney World in this period?
    - Is a Disney Hotel worth the extra money? (we are thinking of the Port Erleans resort), what are the advantages of a Disney Hotel?
    - Do we need to rent a car if we want to gon anywhere else ore is there a way of public transportation?)
    - Is the Disney Dining plan something we should do?


    Thank you very much for reading this post and maybe trying to help us

    1) not too bad, it should be fairly average attendance numbers around that time, it will be manageable.

    2) I believe so. its expensive, but for the most part you are paying for the experience and convenience so I consider it worth while. port orleans is a great choice, I prefer the riverside portion personally but french quarter is nice as well. included in being a hotel guest you are able to use their transportation system as well as being nice and close to many great dining options along with the parks themselves. if you wanted to upgrade to deluxe the convenience only increases being closer to the parks and being connected directly to a variety of different transportation options.

    3) you can rent a car if you want but again there are perks to staying on property. if you are a resort guest they will give you a free ride to and from the airport on the magical express. A car can be convenient and fast but the disney transportation system will save you a bunch of money and works pretty well most of the time.

    4) I don't recommend it. it gives you piece of mind in the sense that you have paid for all your food already, but at the same time it is hard to eat all the food necessary to break even in most cases and there are a ton of unnecessary deserts included with extra costs being added sometimes depending on what plan you purchase.

    Goofy donald was very helpful!

    I second the Disney dining plan as not needed. It does cost more to stay in a disneyland hotel, but you won't need a rental car if you aren't going to any non-Disney parks. And traveling from park to park with a park hopper is easy to navigate.

    Hello Goofy Donald,

    thanks for answering my questions! It is great getting answers from people who have been there.

    why do you prefer the River Side and not the French Quarter?
    are They nor simular (the Same)?

    Different views and set up, Riverside looks like the Louisiana backwoods, French Quarter takes more after New Orleans. Personally I prefer the French Quarter part of the two but just because I like the scenery and feel of one of my favorite cities.

    Either one is a great place to stay!

    My vote is also for the French Quarter. It's a smaller resort, so it feels a little more intimate and manageable.

    I also like French Quarter's more intimate feel and smaller size - easier to get around.
