"Neighbor Hotels’ have value for people who can use points accrued from business travel, chain hotel stays, credit cards, etc by finding something to use their points on and not paying out of pocket.
They lose value by not getting reliable free transport, magic bands, free express from MCO, luggage transfer, ability to send items bought at park directly to room, Goofy wake-up calls, Disney resort activities, and any other magic extras.
Keep in mind that you can search Expedia and others for Disney Resorts too, and those are discounted much better than WDW offers.
Right now I’m only able to find Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort for Nov30-Dec3 on Expedia for $196/nt.
Only AKL there for last days of your trip avail but they’re $400/nt.
You can keep trying all the different hotel sites for Disney Resorts to see what comes up. Or take that Coronado resvn above and call Disney to see if they have the rest of the days avail either at that resort or consider transferring mid-trip to what they have avail (a split stay can actually be fun).
