I also think you experience will very greatly depending on your past (if you have any) visits.

If you have stayed at a Disney resort in the past than things like the lack of DME or lack of Disney "magic" is likely going to be a bigger negative to you than someone who has never stayed at a Disney Resort or only stays offsite.

For our trip on 2011, my first trip in over 20 years, my 2 nieces first visit and my brother and SIL 3 trip trip this decade (at Disney resorts). So the lack of "Disney magic" and DME didn't bother us much. I think we felt the town car with grocery stop was more valuable than DME. I do think my brother and SIL did miss some of the "magic", but the location more than made up for it.

Also as far as cost and location the SD is very hard to beat! The suite we stayed in (photos in above post) were so much better and cheaper than 2 rooms at a moderate. Especially with the teachers, nurses, military or AAA discounts. For us it would be difficult for us to stay anyplace else. Thats why we are booked again in June Also, if you do book, periodically check prices, so far we were able to save $30 a night doing so.
