then would go with it. You are on Disney property. and although these buses are not WDW - they go back and forth to the parks every 30 minutes.

you can walk to DD.

if you get a tower room facing WDW - you can see the fireworks each night - these were offered at check in for like $10 more per room.

so if they still do this - this is a bargin. (yea and I don't like heights)
thanks, I've been really leaning towards it, not sure if they'd offer upgrade when we are getting the military discount already,but you never know! Not worried about the shuttles as we drive,but the walking to DTD sounds awesome as we love shopping there and we're trying out Earl of Sandwich this go around.
I really appreciate all the input from everyone!

Try comfort suites main gate east in Kissimmee. It gets really good reviews and we almost stayed there once. They have their own website or you can go through the main comfort suites. We are a family of 5. Only didn't stay there cause we ended up onsite at pop .

With four of you, you may be able to stay in a one bedroom at wyndam bonnet creek. It will have a king size bed and then a queen size sofa sleeper. Also there is a kitchen and laundry in the room, I'm thinking you could rent points from someone for less than $75 a night, And you will basically be on Disney property.

After much consideration,reading reviews over and over again, DH and I decided to fit a little more into the budget and have decided to stay at the Comfort Suites Maingate East! Overall it just seemed more comfortable, had great reviews and in a convienant location!
Would like to thank you all for your suggestions and help!
