Hi Kids. . .I am going to take a nap this morning and be there at WDW around 1 p.m. Tony cannot make the trip as work has him bound up. Can't wait to hang out before your big day. I love you two and am looking forward to having you as part of my big day next year.

Hugs.

Darcy

Thanks for the feedback! I'll still plan on going to see it, hopefully this weekend!

Sitting here in my hotel room at Sheraton Lake Buena Vista, I am reminded of why I love staying off site. My room is huge, no bedspread(just freshly washed duvet), king sized bed without requesting it and best of all, cheaper than a room at Pop. Including the resort fee, my room with tax was less than 70 a night. Booya.

Yay, so jealous!

What do you do for transportation to and from the parks when staying non-Disney? I don't think I'd miss EMH, but I think I would miss the transportation.

Preaching to the Choir sister. I'm a Condo/Timeshare guy, remember? Even better than what you got.

Just drive.

In Darcy's case, she's (semi)local, so she drives to the area anyway and has a car.

In my case, I ALWAYS rent a car. I like the freedom and honestly, have not really enjoyed the disney buses. I'm just not a fan of being packed like a sardine, and having to spend over 30min to get 10min away. (between the bus wait, multiple stops, and the actual travel time to the park). Plus it's just nice sometimes to be able to go offsite (EGADS!!) for a good meal, or to visit other things in the area (Such as the great set of parks 20min up I-4.)


It Really isn't hard to find your way around the Disney area once you spend some time getting to know the area.

I get having a car but don't you have to pay $15-$20 every day to park then?

I think the current rate is $14.

In Darcy's Case.... (semi)Local... so she has an AP that covers the Parking.


In my case, I often get an AP just because the cost of the ticket (or tickets if I'm planning on multiple trips during the year) + parking comes out with the AP being the better deal.

Either Way... offsite+Daily parking is STILL often cheaper than staying onsite with "free" parking.

If you have AAA, you get a free parking pass if you buy tickets with them. Not only are the tickets cheaper, the parking pass is called Diamond Parking Pass and let's you park around the Handicap area.
