I hate to even ask this, because we all know staying onsite is way better. But have you ever thought about getting a villa offsite? Check out my signature. We have gotten 2-bedroom villas a lot. They sleep an army of people, have two full bathrooms and cost as low as $160 a night.
Our favorites are Vistana Resort, Marriott’s Royal Palms and Marriott’s Sabal Palms. They are seriously close to the parks (10 minutes from Boardwalk, tops) and they have a full kitchen, living room, and dining room as well as in-room laundry.
There are guest shuttles to TTC, where you can start using all Disney transportation, or you can use your own car. You only have to pay for parking once a day at the parks. At the Marriott properties, you have full privileges at the World Center (it’s the tall hotel right outside the WDW gates), which has an unbelivable pool. The Vistana Resort has a gazillion pools of its own.[/QUOTE]
I can highly recommend the offsite villas. That’s really the way to go when you have a group. Everyone gets their own room and bath, lots of space to spread out after a day of “togetherness” with 50, 000 other people. :laugh:
