i am still undecided about were to stay. I wanted to go all out & get a deluxe resort this time. We asked some family to go along also & they don't want to have to pay those high rates. So i have been checking all other options instead. Today i got a post card for $59 value resorts. I called i can get 2 rooms with 5 adults 2 children for $856.00 for 6 nights at pop century. I have been searching for better rates on the downtown disney sites as well, but all i am finding is higher rates than an original disney resort. To me it just seems like it would be better to stay downtown disney near all the shops? Rather than stay at a value resort & not have much within walking distance. Am i wrong? we stayed offsite in 2003 at the days inn lake buena vista, it was not a fancy place but was clean & we could see the epcot ball plain view from our room. If you stay at the value resorts do you get to see epcot ball or any other things like that. Please give me your opinions & maybe help me make my decision a little easier.
