Shelby is definitely great, and we've used the link several times, but I thought I would mention something else to you since you said you were looking at 192 (Irlo Bronson). We just got back from a week in a house at Sunset Lakes.

The house is 5BR/4BA with a pool in a gated community (literally just a few minutes from Animal Kingdom via the Sherbeth Road shortcut). It backs up to one of the lakes. The owner was very accomodating. We paid $100 a night total, but that was for Christmas. He told me that he could be much more flexible for other dates. He also has a 4BR in Emerald Island (even a little closer to AK).

He lists on ebay. Here's a link to a current listing for the 5BR - http://cgi.ebay.com/Orlando-Disney-V...item45f801a594

Depending on how long you're staying, you and your friends might want to go in together. Just a thought.

Wow! Thank you so much. I might be able to do this if more friends go.

I just e-mailed them! Thank you!

In our case, there were only 4 of us (DH and I, our DD and her DH) in that big house!

DH and I took the downstairs master suite, and DD and her DH took the upstairs master suite. We LOVED the huge bathrooms (made it hard to come home to my own master bath ).

I picked that house because son-in-law wanted to fish and the owner gave me such a good deal. DH and SiL were very excited about the pool table, etc., but they never even took the covers off. We were just too busy.

I just got back from staying at the Holiday Inn Downtown Disney and had the opportunity to stay in the section with the patios (it isn't the tower section) and they have a great pool view. I would highly recommend them (unless of course you don't like noise during the busy season as the pool was not busy when we were there). So, just wanted to let everyone know about that section. I really love that hotel and the staff is awesome.

I had some friends stay at the Orange Lake Resort which a lot of people have asked about in this thread. They liked it, but the resort is huge and having a car is pretty much mandatory. So, that is something to consider but it is very family friendly according to them and having the kitchenette was nice. So, I hope that information helps anyone who is trying to make a decision on where to stay.

I still like the proximity of the Holiday Inn Downtown Disney to the parks. It isn't the shortest walk to Downtown Disney and the surrounding area, but they have the buses that run as an alternative.

So, you don't have the buttons below that list the terms and conditions, print rate voucher and book your reservation now? It may be something with your browser. I would recommend printing out a few vouchers to have on hand and then just filling them out as necessary since you have to fill them out anyway as the forms don't populate with data from your reservation.

We will figure this out...I just have a feeling it is your browser...

OMG

I wish I'd seen this thread BEFORE I booked my I-drive hotel!!

I'm going off to do the 'maths' to see if worthwhile cancelling/re-scheduling the booking and using this code instead!!

Thanks

If you click the link that gets you to the friends and family page, the webpage that comes up shows the name to put on the voucher.
