We are planning on going back to WDW next July. There are 5 people in our family(DH, me, DS-13, DS-16, DGrandma). We have always stayed at the value resorts (2 rooms). It is great to have the extra space and be on property but what place would you recommend off property that would be near by? We also may have another family going with us they have 4 in there family (2 adults and 2 kids). What places near by, condos or houses would hold 9? We love to stay on property but with the cost going up and needing at least 2 rooms and maybe 3 we are looking for something of a better value. For those who have always stayed on property and have stayed off do you miss the early morning hours and the late hours for resort guests? How is the drive to and from the parks? Do you have to pay for parking again if you leave in the afternoon and then return in the evening? sorry for all the questions. Thanks for any help. This is new territory for me to explore since we have always stayed on property.
