Okay we were booked 11/30-12/06 for the 4 of us at POP with free dining PIN but then at the last minute my DD14 that was booked with my parents (who cancelled on us 3 days ago) now has to go with us which means I am left with having to have 2 rooms because no other resorts had openings for the 5 of us with our dining PIN which brought our total up another 1160.00. My BIL has offered to get us a room at the Marriot with his points which would mean a free room for entire stay plus an extra day and then we would just pay for our tickets and food OOP. Would we be missing out on anything by staying offsite? This is our 1st trip to WDW so I am having a hard time deciding what I should do. We have 3 girls ages 9, 13, & 14 and they claim is doesn't matter to them but then again they have never been to WDW either. I am sure we would save money by staying offsite but not positive. Marriot does furnish a great breakfast every morning so we could eat there. And they are only located about 4 miles from WDW so would be close by I guess. Please give me your opinions? Forgot to mention we are driving so we will have our own car.
