Considering Offsite trip...HELP!

There are no opinions I trust more than those of my DIS friends! Our last family trip to WDW was in 2009. We have only ever done onsite and we are dining plan people.

With that said, we are hoping to make it back to our favorite vacation destination this spring! YAY! Our initial plan is to do 4-5 days at Disney and a 3 night Bahamas cruise. Our budget is tight. When I say tight, I mean tight. My husband just took a new job that was a step in the right direction for his health and the well being of our family, but a step back in salary. So, we need to cut costs on this trip wherever possible. We are already considering driving rather than flying to save some money.

We are a family of 5. My boys are 18 (getting ready to graduate HS), 15, and 12. I have been looking into vacation rentals and considering staying offsite. Unless Disney comes out with a fantastic deal for spring travel, I think we will be trying offsite accommodations this trip.

I need help! I have been reading extensively on this site and doing lots of research. I have read that going directly through the owner is better, and I have heard that I should stick with a broker or third party. This is all new to me and any advice would be greatly appreciated!
