    Its an experience that is worth it if you want the whole deal. It is something to do once IMO. The flexibility and extra access is worth it IMO. But I've stayed off site as well.

    Been many times. Way too many times. Prices also vary from resort to resort. The low end being $85 per night to around $700.

    I don't think my kids will know the difference at their age. Maybe save the resort experience for the future when I hypothetically have more money I don't care about.

    Did you find off site that much cheaper? Or is it close enough to just say fuck it and go for the resort.

    OK. Didn't know ages. I was an RCI member at time so the price was pretty good.

    2 adults, 2 kids and possibly a mother in law. Kids aged 1 and 5. Trip will be wasted on 1 yo obviously but 5 yo is persistent and tired of waiting.

    I was thinking of a condo for a week or something of that ilk. Flexible on price.

    All depends on how you intend to do rooming. Most Disney rooms are studios with two beds. Assuming you'd give your mother in law her own room as well. Staying on an onsite resort for two rooms could be expensive depending on where you stay. I'm unfamiliar with it, but the Art of Animation resort has only been around for the last year or so. Rooms are all new and it's on the lower end for pricing if you want to stay onsite. For 2 rooms that might around $250 per night. Prices vary depending on season. June-July is a high point for prices and parks are also crowded.

    If you're looking to not spend as much, going offsite might be cheaper. I'm not all too familiar with offsite locations. The only real benefits of staying on Disney property is the environment and the fact that Disney has its own transportation system. If you aren't looking to rent a car, Disney has shuttles that run every 15 or so minutes from park to resort and vice versa.

    Some of the resorts a few miles away are beautiful. You can get an amazing 2 bedroom 2 bathroom suite on a beautiful property. I don't know how much it was though, I don't ask my parents these things. (I always find it funny when people on here know exactly how much their parents spend on shit)

    Just watch out for ticket prices and all of that. Don't get coaxed into any extra shit if you don't need it. Park hoppers and access to water parks aren't necessary and they just drive up the ticket price $100-200. The water parks are stupid if your resort has a pool and park hoppers aren't necessary for a family going for the first time. Tickets are the easiest way of spending money you don't need to spend.

    I find them unnecessary. I also don't know how they'd suit a one year old. Maybe Dunny's five year old would enjoy it, but I don't think a one year will differentiate a resort pool versus a water park pool.

    No, I agree, he goes to Great Wolf Lodge every year. That's my 3 days of water parks for the year. Fuck that shit.

    Pretty sure she'd leave me if I packed the clubs.

    But that's why God made Spring Training baseball.
