Heck the moderate lodging during that time is crazy enough. I guess its off-site lodging for us.
I have no problem staying off-site, and have done so many times. However, I would never stay off site during a peak period.

Many times Disney will have the Magic Kingdom have morning EMH for days on end when the parks are that busy. Which puts you behind from the very start. Also staying off site you will be among the first kept out of the parks if they reach capacity.

To me the value is in having almost constant bus service. The value is in the extra hours, which can be worth their weight in gold over a busy time. The value is in knowing I will be able to get in the parks when those staying off site will be kept out. Going to WDW over a holiday or peak period is no time to be cheap! Staying off site an losing all of those perks to save a few bucks is being penny wise and pound foolish, imho.

Sure, during a less busy time of year stay off site. Not during Spring Break.
