I have thought of doing a Mod but the rates are still a bit too high. I got a pretty good deal at Wyndham for $60 and there is a resort fee of $15. A mod resort is still well over $200.

I'm not sure what is going on that day or week other than there is something going on with a few MLS soccer teams. I know alot of schools have mid winter break as well...we don't (we're making our own break..lol).

The deal at Wyndham IS pretty good except that if you add up $60 for the room + $15 resort fee plus $60 for the cab fare there and another $20 for the cab to Pop Century, you're at $155. (Probably some tax added for Wyndham, too, right?) For $200 you can save yourself a whole lot of trouble and you're only talking about $45 more.

Otherwise, I'd consider something like joshiesdad suggested and stay cheaply near the airport using their hotel shuttles to/from the airport returning the following morning EARLY to the airport to hop on ME and be on your way to Pop.

Talking

Update:
Well, I kept checking the Walt Disney site, kayak, expedia, orbitz, etc last few days and it paid off. I was able to get a standard room at Art of Animation for all the dates I needed and at a pretty good rate too. Now I can stay in same hotel as relatives (easier with the kids) and use magical express both ways.

Woohoo!!!!

Now I just have to keep checking back for restaurant reservations.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions!
Mina
