Just got a call from DSIL. Now, I love her to death and she is my best friend but...Her neighbor is going to WDW this weekend for a week and they are staying in a 4 bedroom condo that she says is about 4 miles from WDW. It supposedly has free transportation on the hour. It is much cheaper and she is wanting us to all go (DB family and the neighbors and me) next year and rent this condo. It would be about $600 cheaper for each family but I have always stayed on site and am so spoiled. I went over all the possible problems, unreliable transportation, taking much longer in traffic, not being in the disney magic 24/7, etc. I think I have about convinced her to keep our scheduled trip in 2 years and stay at POP. Honestly even with the savings I don't think I will have the money saved up in a year and she did admit she probably won't either. Please tell me your experiences staying off site. I am really concerned about the time it would take from the front door of the condo to the turnstile of the park. I just think it would waste a lot of time because of traffic, busses/vans not being on time, etc.
