It’s been asked a million times, but I can’t decide.
2 grandparents who usually take naps.
2 kids (7.5 and 3.5, so travel booster + ride safer vest in cars–both safety devices easily fit in a backpack if necessary)
mid/late August, likely 6 nights/4 park days+ 1 rest or waterpark day but flexible.
Rates at Pop are 126/night or 115/night with undercover tourist + fun & sun discount. We’d need 2 rooms. Will either do no dining plan or possibly the deluxe dining plan for a room with 1 adult and 2 kids.
Rates at Wyndham Bonnet Creek are $236 for a family suite (2 queens plus 1 bunk bed), or one that I am 99% sure is Wyndham Bonnet creek on Priceline express for $114/night (not counting $36/room resort fee per night, so really $272 or $150/night via Priceline express). I am totally overwhelmed by all of the off-site options. Key is each set of adults having an actual bedroom; kids can sleep wherever.
Grandparents usually stay in pretty nice hotels so might not like Pop’s thin walls, but they like deals. Planning to fly in, so will use magical express and Disney transport if staying at pop, or rent a van if at bonnet creek/elsewhere. If offsite, will need to pay for parking at both bonnet creek and at parks.
Wyndham Bonnet Creek seems REALLY nice, and a kitchen would be lovely, but how much of a hassle would it be?
My wife and I and the 2 kids stayed at POFQ last July for 4 nights and loved it, but grandparents (and we, really) are balking at cost of moderates. We intended to take breaks last July and never did, staying approx rope-drop through dinner and then calling it a night. I assume this year would be similar but we might drop even the pretense of an out of park break.
Thanks for your thoughts. I’m really, really excited that this might work out, wherever we stay.
