The Plaza is a nice hotel.:happy: We stayed there one night before we left for a cruise and I walked all around. The grounds were very nice. And it’s close to the Marketplace. I guess you could walk there - it might be a bit of a trek. We stayed at SSR last week and now are at the Marriott Royal Palms at the World Center. Honestly, the condo and grounds are just as beautiful as any Disney resort and it’s only 2 miles from the main gate. If you have a car, it’s no trouble at all to get to the parks. Of course, you don’t get all the perks - but people shouldn’t think that they won’t have a good time if they’re not on-site.
