We usually fly into Orlando, use DME, use Disney transportation to get around WDW, then use the Mears shuttle to go over to Universal for a day or two. This time, we have to make a day trip over to Clearwater and will be spending two nights over at RPR at Univeral, and may want to go to a few other places offsite, so with the ridiculous price of airfare are considering driving this time (for our Oct 27th-Nov 4th trip). We got to thinking that if we are not going to be dependent on others for transortation, maybe we should stay offsite. It would just be my husband and me so we wouldn't need a suite or anything. We normally stay in a moderate and I currently have a room only ressie at POFQ that I booked last Dec under the bounceback deal. Where would be a good place to stay that's close to WDW? Nice, but not necessarily deluxe. What are the names of all the hotels in the DTD area and the Bonnet Creek area? Any other hotels close? What do you think: keep POFQ under the bounceback deal I currently have or step out of our comfort zone to the darkside of offsite? We have AP's so don't need to worry about parking fees at WDW and can get a discount at WDW TS restaurants using our TiW card.
