We are looking into our first family trip with my kids in October 2013. The kids will be 2 and 4, both of which celebrating birthdays in a few weeks close to our trip...so almost 3 and 5. My parents are also coming along for the kids first trip. We have always stayed in the park before having kids and intended on doing the same this trip. My parents are set on staying outside the park because they like having a rental car and are saying it will be easier for us to get to the Harry Potter park at Universal. I looked into Bonnet Creek and the price sounds amazing, 9 or 10 days would cost us about 1K. Then I looked into AoA for all 6 of us to stay in the same room and that trip is going to cost over 10K for everything included, flights, room, food, etc. Are there other options, as far as value resorts go that can accommodate 4 adults and two kids? We want to share a room. How would we get to the Harry Potter park if we didn't have a rental car, is there a shuttle there? How would I go about seeing if there is a room discount or meal plan discount for that month we are going? Can we bring a rental stroller on the shuttle to get to the parks? I'm assuming it would have to fold up to be brought on? Thank you for your responses, I want to book the room soon.
