am I crazy or wouldn't it be cheaper to drive and pay the $14/$15 to park than to take a taxi to the parks in the morning and another one back in the evening?

Asking an honest question - we always drive and have never taken a taxi in FL

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

My guess is that paying for a taxi both ways would outweigh simply paying to park. Don't forget that it's not ONLY the miles that are calculated. Each time he's at a light, time ticks away. Or he sits in a little traffic, time ticks away.

Staying just two miles off property and walking to disney property is one thing, the other 7 miles down World Drive to the Magic Kingdom is quite another. I used to work there and it took me about 10 minutes to get on property from where I lived and another 15 at least to get to the Grand. Not a good idea to even attempt to walk, that is for sure. Not to mention the Gators that occasionally would be crossing the roads.

My goodness people. I am a teacher and I think the bully and "teacher" comments are plain rude. It's not like the guy teaches disney 101. Teachers are human just like you all and don't know everything about everything. Now if he was a disney instructor then the comments would have merit. However, he is not.

I'd be worried as well, if all colleges had a required course entitled...WDW, the lay of the land. First time visitors have no idea just how massive WDW is and I have to wonder why we think they should. Not taking the advise of a child is not an unusual thing when it comes to adult/child relationships. Bet you did the same thing with your kids. They told you something and you checked with an adult to see if it were true or not.

Don't most hotels that close have a shuttle anyway? He cannot realize how far the actual parks are!
