We are planning our 1st trip to WDW in May 2005. I know that's right around the corner. I'm trying to find a place to stay for 2 adults and 1 child. If we stay off property what is the best City to stay in that's close to Magic Kingdom and the other Disney parks. We currently have reservations to stay at the Westgate Lakes. Has anyone stayed there before? How close to WDW is it. They say 2 miles, but I'm just wondering exactly where the 2 miles will put you. We chose them simply because they had a mini kitchenette. My thought was that we could possible cut down on the cost of eating out. Does that really help?
What is the traffic like getting to the parks if you stay off property? We are planning to get a rental car, but would it be easier with a two year old to just do the shuttles??
If we stay on property what would you recommend. I don't want to do the All Star Resorts.
What other tips do you have.
Thanks a bunch.
