I have read all the golf cart threads I can find. Everyone agrees they are FUN to have, but it seems there are differing opinions on the necessity of the golf cart at the fort. Seems to me that it depends on what type of Fort visiter you are. ie, a person that is using it a place to stay and will be at the parks most of the time, or a person enjoying the fort. So - I would very much appreciate opinions on whether my family needs one on our late July trip. This is us: 1. Hubby, me, and four kids between ages of 5 and 12. 2. This will only be our second vacation ever to WDW. First time we stayed in 2 rooms at ASMo with the DDP and loved it. This time to save moneywe are staying in a cabin to have a kitchen to use for many meals to save money. (which means we will be returning to the fort via bus and boat often for dinner, and then heading back out for more fun.) 3. I'm thinking since this is only our 2nd trip, and the 5 year old doesn't even remember our 1st trip, we are pretty much still park commandos, and will be spending most of our time at the parks. We have 7 day passes for our trip and will be doing waterparks. 4. I usually like to do at least one or two loads of laundry while on vacation, but don't have to if it is a pain to get to the facilities. 5. We ARE NOT CAMPERS (no offense to all of you wonderful people) and even though I think it would be fun, my husband just does not have the "camping mentallity" and I don't think either of us will have a huge desire to "go looping". He won't have an interest in all of your cool set-ups. (we did take a horse and buggy ride through the fort last time we were at Disney when we went to the Hoop-de -do, and it was Halloween so we loved seeing all the cool Halloween decorations on that trip. This time it is end of July and I doubt there will be too many decorations. Also, since it is something we have already seen and done, I don't think we have a huge need or desire to do it again. (although, if we do have a cart, it is something will will definately do at least once. ) 6. My main concern is getting to and from the busses and boat launches in the morning and evening coming and going from the parks and maybe once or twice to the pool, and to the campfire, and Mickeys Backyard BBQ. 7. We will have a jog stroller for the 5 year old, so if he is exausted on the way home after the parks we can stroll him, but that also means that it is something we will have to haul on and off the internal busses as well as the park busses. 8. I can afford a cart from an off-site company listed in the GC thread, but when I say I can afford it, I'm not saying I'm made of money. With 4 kids , I can find plenty of good uses for the money if I don't blow it on a GC. I won't mind spending on the GC if it makes our trip so much better and we can't imagine having not had it. But if we are rarely using it, or piling in it for short trips, that parking and walking aren't worth the trouble of taking it, then I am gonna be TICKED that I wasted the money. I scrape and do without for a long time to be able to afford the vacation to begin with, I don't like wasting one penny. (mind you, we WILL be piling as there are 6 of us - and I think I can only afford a 4 seater) So that's us. Whaddayall think? cart or no cart?
