You have many accommodations to chose from, and in an effort to stay competitive their rates are usually quite reasonable. I feel strongly that guests should stay at a Disney Resort!  This vacation is a Magical, possibly one time only experience (*ahem* my husband would warn you otherwise... ha).  Consider the following Disney Resort perks closely before making your decision. #1 - Cost Savings If you assume that staying at a Disney Resort will cost you more than staying off site, that may not necessarily be the case.
