5 PEOPLE...3 adults...where to stay?

what's available on property? We stayed @ one of the allstar suites a few years back & it was waaaaay too small for us.

THEN I want to compare it to something off property...but where?

I've seen the mention of subdivisions, but I am not quite brave enough for some random house, after reading not so great reviews...

I'm stuck!

Did you look at okw?

I think i saw on the uk site that they're giving fab promotions atm for staying in a deluxe villa, which would be old key west or saratoga springs. I think both huge discounts and free dining. We had a similar deal years ago and okw is just fab!
Alternatively you could rent points from a dvc member and rent a studio at for example bay lake tower (next to contemporary) or at boardwalk or at beachclub. Prices would be around 220 bucks or so per night.

Bonnet Creek is a good option of you have a car. Also, have you priced out 2 rooms? My family of 5 is staying at the Bc, but when I did the math there wasn't much difference between that and getting connecting rooms at a moderate.

If you want to stay on site and you felt that the All Star suites was too small then I think your only option is a 2bedroom villa. You will find the most reasonable prices for those are OKW or SSR. The rest of the two bedroom villas have a higher price tag and require a good amount of notice to book.

If you can rent points you will get a better deal than paying cash.

I think most people's go to for off site is Bonnet Creek.

I will say that I have rented houses in florida many many times(not for our Disney trips because we only stay on site for those but for our not Disney vacations) and I have never had any trouble or been disappointed. We usually rent in Windsor Hills which is a resort community. We love having a private pool right outside our back door.

tks for the info...I'll will ck all these out....

I know nothing about renting points...I'll jump over & see if there is a good explanation on their board on how to do that.

I really don't want to spend $200+ a night....

I'm not smart enough to know how renting points works. Will someone send me a link to a thread spelling it out or explain it to me?
I scanned the primer thread but that didn't help.

Could you do two rooms at one of the value resorts? If not, I agree that your best option would be a 2br villa
