[QUOTE=subvetss;957006]I would like to append my statement about value resorts being cheaper than Ft. Wilderness. It is cheaper for me. First I don’t have to fill my motor home twice to get there and back and also I only live 2 1/2 hrs away. That means I am a Florida resident. I am also retired. We go 4 times a year. I can pick the times there are specials at the value resorts. For example in Dec. 2008 I stayed at Pop Century for 8 nights at the rate of $68.00 per night. In March, 2009 same place at $78.00 per night. I am going to be in Ft. Wilderness on the 21st of May at &105.00 per night. Also We chose to go during the week and not the weekend . Less crowded and a little cheaper. We love Ft. Wilderness and enjoy being there in the motor home but with the freedom to choose the time and place I find it is much less money out of my pocket overall to stay at a value resort when they have special Fl. resident rates.
Hope this clears up any misunderstanding about my comments.
I totally get it your point and I agree that you should save money wherever you can. I REALLY get the fuel deal, we have 250 gallon tank to fill.
Just keep in mind that when the values are offering a FL resident discount, FW often has deals too, they just aren’t advertised as much because they have no problem filling the campground and are always trying to fill rooms.
You know best what works best for you family and whatever keeps you visiting often is what you should do.
