OK - so this basically comes down to budget, if you have car, and a whole bunch of other things. However I will go on the general premise that you want to stay in the bubble and you will not have a car.
Value - is a wonderfully squishy terms. I can spend $100 on something and it can be an AMAZING value or it can be a crappy value - all depending upon what I deem value to mean.
Although we don’t lounge around the hotel etc - I find that the hotel at a destination has a LOT to do with my overall enjoyment.
1 - Location. Will being in a particular area make my getting around a bit easier (or a bit more fun)?
2 - Room size. 5 people in a VALUE sized room and 5 people in a deluxe cateogry room are two very different things
3 - Beds - my queen requires a queen (nuf said)
4 - Crowd. Although all the hotels are rather large - is the common area large enough to make it feel open / not crowded
5 - Atmosphere. I chose atmosphere and not theme. For me, it it calm, is it nice, is it clean. Is there interesting architecture/spaces. Does it give me a sense of decompression once I get back from the parks - can I relax there with a drink (or two) (or three on those long days). Does it help me to unwind and just “be”.
There have been times where I found a LOT of value at a Hampton Inn while traveling. Nice, Clean, consistent. On our most recent trip to WDW / US. We stayed at Portafino in US and SWAN at WDW. Although the Portafino cost me a lot more - I found A LOT more value in it than I did the SWAN.
So there is a big difference between VALUE and COST. For me - a more expensive resort that truely allows me to relax and be taken care of is well worth the value.
However to provide you with an answer you are probably looking for. With three small kiddies - I would highly recommend the WILDERNESS LODGE for good value.
