Thinking about a trip. There would be 3 adults and 4 kids 3, 5, 8,& 12 ages. where should we stay on or off property? 1 room or 2? And should we get dining plan or not? trying to go the cheapest way but it is not cheap If I go with the dining plan & room pkg. I love to stay on property. Please help. Any input would be helpful.We would be going in Sept, Oct, Jan, or Feb to avoid crowds.

If you go in sept oct you can get free dining. You need room at minimum. Since your spending most of your time out if the room you need the mos economical. I say pop century or one if the value resorts. The only thing you would pay for is hotel and park passes. Hope this help. Stay on property. - 5disneylovers  985.6 #5 1:47PM
2 rooms. Staying off property. You have to see about transportation to the park. If the place your staying provides a shuttle your on their time. If you have your own vehicle you have to pay for parking. I think the dining plan is best because you get every thing. Everyone can eat to their heart desire No extra for snacks or dessert. It is costly to eat in and out of the park - 5disneylovers  985.6 #5 1:52PM
That is why I love staying on property is because of transportation. And I dont need to wonder what my bill is going to be after we eat. - purplelooney  10.7 #233 2:01PM
If you are looking for a trip on the cheap, staying offsite with that many in your crew is significantly cheaper. If you want to stay onsite, then you can do Art of Animation suites, but they are more than the moderate resorts. There's also the cabins that would work for you. The dining plan can save if you are big eaters . . . for us, we don't eat dessert at all our meals at home, and we prefer water so paying for those is more and we wind up saving by not doing the dining plan. If you go in September there is free dining, which we almost always do :), last year I missed the deadline. There are no crowds in September, but this year from what I heard October was busier than normal. Not been in Jan or Feb. Planning is so much fun, ENJOY!! - DizneyGirl  731.2 #7 1:45PM
Thank you ladies. May have to check into QS instead of dining plan. I am tring to avoid cooking. Been in Feb and Oct. And usually do the free dining. - purplelooney  10.7 #233 1:58PM
We travel with 8, I get two rooms at pop century and I get them connected we open the doors between us and it works out great. We go during valu season which can save you money and we also have annual passes which saves money also if you are not doing a dinning plan. If you ate going to go the route of qs and not do an sit downs you pretty much break even or sometimes even a little less. It's just conveint to have it all paid and in the card. Have fun planning - mmddgp  619.7 #10 3:48PM
