Since this is our first trip to Disney and we are staying off-site I really wanted the kids room to be Disney themed just because I think it ill make it even more magical for them.

Like you though my husband could care less and is all about the price

My experience is that most kids could care less---as often as not, it is the parents, not the kids who really want a themed room. As I wrote, even our onsite stays are not at resorts that are particularly "Disney", and my kids would rather have their own beds than have a Mickey lamp in their room.

After Disney all day, I'll looking for comfort at night, a well stocked kitchen and a warm pool in January at a price that allows us to come every year.
Too many visits to list, with many more to come. Stayed on-site, offsite, hotels and condos, but the pool homes are the best vacations! Thank you sjsvillas and CasaGrandeFL!
Meanwhile, back on the ranch,we love our lake house.

From all the pictures I've seen while scouting for homes, "Disney themed" more often than not amounts to some Disney posters on the walls and a cheap character bedspread from Wal Mart so, no, I do not have a need for this kind of themeing. Besides, there's plenty of that Disney feel at the parks all day!

Doesn't matter to me at all, I would actually rather avoid it. I do not enjoy 24/7 total immersion. My kids are 4 and 1 and they will have no clue or even know they're missing out on anything.

We get enough theming at the parks. If there's a bedroom at the house or condo with Mickey on the wall, no problem, but I'm not looking for a house specifically for that.

If I need 24/7 Disney theming, I book onsite. When I stay offsite, I am looking for a comfortable room with a big TV, full kitchen, and pool/spa. Both experiences work for me and I tend to alternate Disney stays with offsite. Some of the nicest hotels in the Orlando area are not Disney locations.
