    We are doing a land and sea vacation in January. Our cruise is Monday-Friday, we are staying at PO-RS Friday-Tuesday. We planned to fly in on the Sunday before our cruise, but saved a ton of money by flying in on the Saturday before. So, I planned to just Priceline a room for Sunday night as we were going to get in late. However, now we are flying in the Saturday before, so we'll be there Saturday evening, all day Sunday and Monday morning. So, now I'm wondering what to do. We WILL NOT be visiting any theme parks before cruise. Thinking just Downtown Disney and mini-golf.

    If I go with my original idea and get a cheap hotel room somewhere. I'll need to pay for transportation from the airport to the hotel. Then will I have to pay for transportation to downtown Disney or is this normally included with the hotel? Would this really be cheaper than just booking an extra two nights at PO-RS, considering I'd get the free transportation. And I've not stayed off of Disney property in almost 15 years, so I don't even know where to stay....so suggestions are welcome there too!

    There are 2 adults & 3 kids, if this helps with my equation. Thanks so much for any advise...I know this is a complex question!!!! :-)

    Why not stay during your pre cruise dates at Cocoa Beach? You could rent a car at MCO, drive to Cocoa Beach, and return car at Cruise Port. There must be lots of rentals that have a return near the Port. Not sure when you're going, but the beach is nice, and Kennedy Space Centre is nearby.
    We enjoyed The Hampton Inn.
