But we do a lot of the "other" things, mini golf, disney quest, waterparks and like to travel from one to the other without the added time of going back to the resort.

I think it is done to keep people from parking in the "free locations" and taking disney transportation to the parks, but it very timely to those staying there and just trying to get around.
We did lots of other stuff, including WWoS. We went from our resort to other resorts for dinner, and yes sometimes that meant taking a bus to one place and hoping on another. We never had any problem, period.

Maybe it was just Coronado ... I don't know, maybe we just always got lucky with the busses showing up right when we wanted them, maybe you just got UNlucky and kept -just- missing the bus and having to wait the maximum time. I just know for us it was outstanding and we wont look back.

That is great to hear. I am hoping maybe we can use the busses again here and theer as I enjoy them. DH, not so much. I like talking with people about their day and the kids think it's another ride .

It is true about hitting it right though, last trip 4 POP busses came as I was waiting for an A of A bus. By the time the 4th one came, I hopped on it, it was almost empty since so many had come before it, We ate at pop and then crossed hour glass bridge to A of A.

It is nice that Disney will be offering something and I am happy for those who will be able to use this upcoming discount; but unfortunately for my family it is not enough of a savings to keep us onsite. If the "up to 30% off rooms" portion breaks down to be 15-20% off at the value resorts, the room and park ticket discount offer detailed in Danny25's post won't come close to what we are saving by staying at Bonnet Creek (even with our minivan rental reservation) and getting our park tickets through Undercover Tourist because onsite at Disney we have to get either two rooms or a family suite at a value resort, the resort rates are "regular" season rates in May, and two of my four kids are now at "adult" prices. I know the prospect of them offering free dining for the spring was a long shot, but I was hoping that they would at least extend the stay, play, and dine promotion; but I guess they don't have to fill rooms that much and the stay, play, and dine promo is going to be the offseason/value season general public discount and free dining will probably only be available to those who get it through a random pin code. It's all good though, we are still going to have a magical trip.

Look at the post "Ladies and Gentlemen . . . " in this same forum.

I would never pay Disney's rack rates. Not with all the great deals offsite.

We would have stayed offsite for our next trip, had it not been for the Free Dining pin I was lucky enough to receive. With 5 of us, 4 of which are disney adults, that was the best savings for us.

As these deeper discounts seem to be getting less and less, I think our next trip will be offsite, where we will enjoy the extra space of a condo.
