I also agree with the staying on resort. Stay within your budget and you’re more than happy. I’ve stayed 3 out of 4 times at values, the 4th moderate. Values are great and would never trade them to save about $10/night off resort-or less (that’s what it amounts to when you figure parking, having to rent a car for transportation and the hassle of having to deal with the traffic yourself)
I agree, if you’re on the dining plan, you don’t even need to carry snacks in cause we always have left at the end that we’re trying to spend on take home snacks.
Yes, alot of walking, so yes, pace yourself. But as anyone on this board can verify. Disney is such a different vacation. From the time you walk in the gates it’s this magical feeling that you feel like you are in another world, a world of fun, no cares, just enjoy.
