We stayed at night at cabana bay. Mainly cuz I wanted to go in the lazy river and extra hour at Harry Potter world lol. We were looking into one night there this Tripp but it was half of what we were going to pay for pop century for a week. We just decieded to use some dvc points we were going to save for old key west (that washer and drier in the room is a big deal for us lol). I'm so excited for this trip. New stuff. We are going to get our Disney fb page up soon for some live videos and a blog and instagram  - TinkTinkTink  302.6 #33 5:54AM

Lol. Great question. In our younger years when our jobs were not the best we scraped and scrounged to make it happen. We have only stayed off property once and didn't like it but many do( no wrong answer here) the majority of the times we have been here we have stayed valu resort ( we are gone most of the time and only sleep or shower here) and off season.

No way around it, Disney is expensive. There are so many hotels nearby. That's how I save. I stayed at a Value resort once, but don't see the need to do it again. Yes, staying at the Grand Floridian would be amazing, but I would never pay those prices. You can always visit it for free. I pick my splurges for the trip and scrimp elsewhere. Since I have to fly, I always check on Orbitz about making it a "package". Sometimes the hotels are super cheap that way.  - JenGwen323  2238.0 #86 11:41PM
We stay off site every other year. If we did not we could not go every year. The years we stay on site we make sure we do the free dining and go during value season. This means pulling our kids out of school, but I've come to terms with that and I'm quite alright with it. Staying in a condo saves us thousands of dollars because we eat there, and it's probably 10% to 30% of a moderate or Deluxe resort. We also drive down and we live in the midwest so it's a 24-hour total drive (each way). It cost us about $950 to drive down and back, but flights would be around $4,000 during the times we want to go. We do buy groceries and eat in our condo with just one meal in the park per day. We also opted not to do the park hopper pass, we're not big fans, as we feel you lose time as you're transported from one park to another, and it can save you quite a bit as well. - DizneyGirl  1545.8 #5 4:09PM

As Platinum Annual passholders in Florida, we pay installments every month which makes it more managable. Since the trips we plan already have the tickets "covered", that's one major expense already taken care of. That helps alot! Of course, with my older son in college, we can't go on as many Disney trips as we used to!  - Radio-Man  346.7 #27 12:00AM

How great. The kids are such great ages and the parks are wonderful during the holidays. I have never been during that week but I'm sure it's busy. I definately would try to stay on property and plan on getting there early during the day so you can hit a couple things before it gets too crazy. Plan your fp wisely. If there are characters you definitely want to see consider booking a dinning event   More...
Hello and welcome back! During those dates you'll find the parks are at max capacity, especially Magic Kingdom. If you don't get up and to the parks bright and early you will find they will be turning guests away due to being full.Β People do go during these dates, obviously, and still have a good time. If you decide to go during these dates, pack your patience and realize you will get to see and do a lot less. For me personally, I prefer the least crowded dates. There are crowd calendars online if you Google for them, you'll find several. If I remember correctly the second week in January would be significantly less crowded. - DizneyGirl  1545.8 #5 2:09PM
We will be traveling with 3 boys and a little girl, ages 6,7,8 and 9. - sjmommy  5.1 #436 2:01PM
We are going the week after Thanksgiving, I've heard that week isn't bad with crowds. This does mean I have to take my kids out of school but sometimes great family memories are worth it. My hubby doesn't do large crowds he is not a patient man lol. - txdisneymomma  163.1 #59 6:41PM
That should be an awesome week! I agree with the school thing. I used to really worry about it, then the last few years decided I don't care. It's just a few days and not everyone can go during the summer. - DizneyGirl  1545.8 #5 6:43PM
I'm a teacher. This is my favorite time to go. Not only do I have to take myself out, but also my daughter. I have good substitutes and I put my daughter on a study contract this way the school does get the money. It really is a good time of the year and all the Holiday stuff is up.  - DznylndFamily  46.1 #119 9:25PM
I've gone this during week, but it was a few years back. If it had been my first time, I would have never gone back. Unbelievable crowds, a bunch of drunk people, unbelievable lines at the busses, and very tired and frustrated cast members. We like the week after Thanksgiving or the 2 weeks after New Years.  - DznylndFamily  46.1 #119 9:30PM

I finally got through on the phone! So I ended up switching to a pirate room (not my first choice but I'm going to pray for someone to cancel so I cvs switch back) and I ended up getting free dining plus the gift cards! Woo hoo!

My fiancΓ© and I are stuck with the pirate rooms as well. How romantic haha. But worth it in the end! Since we really only sleep there anyway. As for buses, I read mixed reviews but it seems like some people are just drama queens and the walk to the main bus station isn't too bad and from there the buses are good!

I think you'll still enjoy the room. I remember the very first time we stayed on property the only way we could get these special offer was by staying at the All Star Sports. Nobody in our family, at that time, enjoyed Sports at all, not even my husband. However when we got there, everything being Larger than Life was just so cool, it did not take away from our enjoyment of our trip at all. And we still rave about staying at All Star - DizneyGirl  1545.8 #5 2:15PM

BOTH resorts are excellent and the bus issue with CBR isn't a big deal unless it's a rainy day. Pop Century can be VERY busy and crowded and the entire resort "empties" into one set of bus stops - the lines can be long!  - Radio-Man  346.7 #27 4:07AM
