My family (me, DH, DD7, DD4, DD1, and my parents) are going to Disney World in November, but I can’t make a final decision about accommodations. Here are some things we’re considering:
We want to take advantage of the free dining plan. We know nothing is official at this point, but historically the week we are going would qualify. We originally wanted to stay at Art of Animation, but seeing as the Little Mermaid rooms are disqualified from free dining, that one is out. One of the suites may work, but I don’t care for how much more expensive they are but we would still have to upgrade the dining plan.
I was looking at Fort Wilderness cabins and love the idea… full kitchen, everyone stays together so we can split the cost, fun outdoor activities that the guys would really enjoy. However, we’re going to need a pak n play for my youngest and I’m not sure we’ll have room in the cabin for one. I’ve also read reviews that lack of storage and hot water is an issue. That’s a pretty big concern for four adults and three kids.
I keep coming back to Port Orleans French Quarter… in the past it has qualified for free dining, the price point is good, and it seems to be on the smaller side as far as resorts go. We’d have to get two rooms if we stay here.
Anyone willing to share their thoughts or tips or advice? If we stay at French Quarter, what are some pros and cons? Is there enough room for a pak n play in one of the rooms? We don’t care about dining on site, really. And even the theme of the room isn’t huge, though I honestly hate missing out on super fun rooms like AoA has
Help me decide… my entire family has left all of the planning to me, which is completely fine, but I need some direction!
