My partner and I (46 & 40 respectively) - no kids - are planning our first trip to Disney World and I have found the accommodation choices overwhelming.... Looking for some advice about whether to stay within Walt Disney World or further out (on the outside). I hope that I have explained that clearly enough. We will be staying 5 or 6 nights from around the 17-May-2012.
It appears that on the inside of WDW the accomm is more expensive but wondering if its worth paying the extra dollars. We will have a hire car so travelling from outside accomm can be done but we do have to consider travel time / traffic and then have to pay daily parking fees at the theme parks. Inside accomm seems mostly covered by complimentary shuttle buses around WDW to most all the attractions - as well as Downtown Disney. I also see on other posts that alot of people head back to their accomm mid way through their days from the theme parks, for an afternoon siesta, then go back again later in the day.
Is it worth saving money on the accomm just to forego the convenience of staying within WDW?
Help me, if you can. Ta much.
