    We are traveling w/ friends this summer to Disney. We are planning on staying for a few days--they are only going to Disney for one day. Should they stay onsite or offsite? They plan on doing other things after Disney in the Orlando area-so I wasnt sure which would be better option for them. What will they be limited too if they stay offsite? On day 2 of our trip--would they be able to do anything Disney related w/ us w/out passes? (Ive heard of a park w/ a horse carriage,etc--would they be able to go to it?)

    Thanks! :bounce: :Pinkbounc :cool1:

    Oh my-Disney for only one day?! :crazy: I'd definitely stay onsite, then, to make the most of my time. If you're going to the Magic Kingdom for the one day together, you might even want to suggest a monorail resort so you're very close.
    Have fun! :flower:

    It's really personal preference. We usually do a "WDW" trip where we stay on site and do nothing but Disney, or a non-WDW trip. We stay off site and do other things, with maybe only a day at MK.

    There are so many wonderful resorts off-site that your friends could get for the same or less money than a WDW resort. I've been dying to try the Hyatt that was featured on Great Hotels.

    Yes, there are lots of non-park things to do. Visit other Disney resorts, the Boardwalk, ride the Monorail & ferries, visit FW (little petting zoo, bonfire, etc), rent water mice or other boats, parasail, DTD, just hang out by the pool for a day, see a dinner show, etc.
