We are trying to book our trip in October for my family of four. We've been told by everyone that it's worth it to stay at the resort because we'll get in earlier and be able to stay later, plus we won't have to get a rental car, etc. Is this true? It's pretty pricey, but I agree that it sounds easier to just hop the rail back to the room (I have two SMALL kids) for naps and such than to go back out to the parking lot and find a car, etc. Do we really need a hopper pass? Is there anyplace for deals on Disney Resorts? Any info or threads you can direct me to would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
