Hey everyone, I'm planning a last minute Disney trip with 5 adults. We are driving down so my dates are a little flexible but I'm shooting for 7/26-8/2. The last few times I went, I used vacation homes and it was relatively easy booking through VRBO. Now, when I look through VRBO it seems that's it has really been taken over by management companies and the nightly rates are higher through VRBO then if I rented the same unit directly from the company. So I started researching management companies and that was a nightmare (sort of like looking up the side effects of your new meds--just don't do it!!). Anyway, I'm now totally lost. I found one or two places in the Reunion Resort that looked nice. I do want a fancy place and not something worn out. But a few of the management companies renting them seem like they have a lot of bad reviews (Jeeves was one I looked at--very mixed). Then I kept hearing how "far" Reunion was to the parks. Uuuggghhh. I stayed at Terre Verde for two years and it was down off Poinciana--it was kind of a pain in the neck of a drive. Indian Creek was a little better. I've tried to view things by the map and I'm just lost. It's been 6 years since I've been down there and I've lost my bearings on what is where. So do you have any recommendations for good management companies, private owners, etc? Also what are some of the newer communities that aren't too far from the parks? My other option is to throw away all my fiscally conservative ideas and rent an onsite hotel. I've gotten some decent enough quotes through Disney (with a military discount) but it is still very expensive. Also, my party of 5 will have two cars and the onsite parking just frosts me. Now, I know that we will have to pay to park at the theme parks but we would only take one car over there for doing that. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
