Staying at the Grand Floridian Hotel (it looks a little bit like the Disneyland Hotel in Paris) would be great, but we are students and can't afford to stay there. We are going to stay at one of the All Star Hotels or at the Pop Century. Which one of these hotels can you recommend.
Thank you for your informations concerning the Dining Plan. Has one of you used the plan before? How was your experience?
We will not use it, because we think that we can't eat that much that the Plan is worth the money.
Are the parks very crowded during January? How is the weather at this time?
We will stay for one week, so we have plenty of time for the themeparks and we are really looking forward to see Epcot and the Animal Kingdom.
I just stayed at the All Star Movies a few weeks ago and it was good. The people there were friendly and it was clean. The food was good at the resturant there. We visited Pop Century for dinner one night and while the theming was nice, their food area was a MESS. The beverage center was sticky and the napkins weren't refilled, there were no straws, stuff eevrywhere. Granted, this could have been a one time thing though as well.
We used the dining plan and it is a ton of food! Worth it though and everyone is used to it there. Makes it kinda nice to not have to worry about spending money on food.

At first we wanted to stay in the Pop Century, but now we are thinking about the All Star Movies. I think that it is not possible to walk to one of the parks, I'm right?
I'm looking forward to our special veggie-treatment in the restaurants - did you know that there is a whole guide about vegetarian-dining in WDW. My girlfriend bought it and it seems really well researched.
