A bit of HOTEL INFO

Thought I’d share some info about my hotel snag:
Chose a 2.5* Mystery Hotel on Hotwire for the Disney Maingate-Celebration area. Already knew from Betterbidding .com that there was a VERY good chance that the hotel I already WANTED and had chosen was going to be the winning bid.

Nonetheless, it was NERVE-WRACKING to wait for the transaction to be completed so that I could see that I did, in fact, receive the hotel I wanted… and I DID! I was so nervous about it because the hotel I had been eyeing in 2008 was NOT the one I ended up getting. We got an OKAY hotel…. But def. not what I’d thought we’d get @ $60/night.

I ended up paying $23/night, with taxes that came to $88 and some change. HOW AWESOME IS THAT? Best Western Lakeside is recommended by 79% of Tripadvisor travelers who’ve gone to this hotel, and they really sing it’s praises!

Here’s where we are staying:





There's also a mini-golf, the rooms come with a fridge, and there is a shuttle if we choose to use it.

Next up: the Daily Plans and a Visual Itinerary!

It's about 5 minutes to Animal Kingdom, 15 to Magic Kingdom.
I've always been a 15-20 min. commuter my entire working life so that doesn't deter me at all!

Oh- and to my PTR! Thanks for coming along!

Awesome! We'll be there the 4-7th and we'll be doing some of the same things at the same times. Maybe I'll run into you. Enjoy the last few days countdown!
