So, we decided to plan our yearly vacation with the kids during their Spring Break. We generally do something every other year when we have the big kids during their Spring Break, but it's generally something smaller like spending a few days in Indianapolis going to the Zoo and Children's Museum.
But this year....we've decided to splurge (but on a budget!) and take the kids to Disney World!!! I think I'm just as excited as they are. lol
I've spent several hours the past two days printing out info on different Resorts and package deals, so that I can lay them all out together and we can compare our options.
I've received several emails from friends who have went before and offered advice on what's worth the money and what's not.
So far the consenses say the Park Hopper is a must have!
For a family of six, I've also heard that the Quick Dining option is a good way to go.
As far as lodging, with a family size of six, the choices are limited.
I really wanted to stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge but with a minimum price tag of almost $800/night, it's quite a bit more than we'd like to spend on lodging!
So, it looks like we'll either be staying at The Cabins at Fort Wilderness or The All-Star Music Resort. Both places look like fun....but the All-Star Music Resort has TWO bathrooms (and let's face it...that may be important), but The Cabins have walking trails, marshmellows roasting, a nightly BBQ, and their own private decks/grill area. I'm leaning towards The Cabins because it just seems like it's more fitting for our family.
Have any of you ever stayed at either of these Resorts? And if so, what did you think of them?
Currently, I'm also debating between what character meal I'd like to plan to take the kids to! They look like A LOT of fun, and everyone who has made suggestions to me, said they are a MUST!
Suggestions are definitely welcome!
