I can't do two queen beds in one room My kids won't lay down and go to sleep with hubby and I present in the room...

Plus, when I read how long it'll take to get from AOA to park entrances I'm not impressed. While one might spend extra $$ to stay on-site looks like we'll spend it on parking/car

One bedroom (at least) is a must have. I think we'll be happy at Cypress Harbour or Royal Palms.

Marriott's Harbour Lakes is across the street (I believe)from Marriott's Cypress Harbour. It is very geared toward little kids-- if you can get the same time share rates there.

Staying on site is a totally different experience then off site. We stayed off site our first time and decided we would stay on site for future trips.

We're you looking at family suites in the value resorts? That would be the only way to not be in the same room with the kids for bed time. Or a 1 bedroom DVC villa.

Another possibility is looking at the Downtown Disney Doubletree. They are all suites. While not a Disney property and not the same perks as a wdw resort, they are in the DTD area, and have very good park transportation. Their park busses run every 30 min. So you wouldn't have to rent a car. And you'd be close to the magic. They have good discounts sometimes on Mousesavers.com. We stayed 1 night here Pre WDW package and got a great rate that included continental breakfast bar.

One of the conveniences we like about staying on site is the ability and ease of going back to our resort for a mid day break, then returning to a park later on. Very hard to do off site.

I don't know what you read about time, but no park is more then a 20 or 25 min bus ride away from your resort. Most are just a 10 or 15 min ride.
