We are a family of 5 (kids are 11,14,20) taking a last-minute Disney trip and need help deciding if staying in the park is worth the additional expense. Since we need a suite, our choice was the new Art of Animation but it's just become unavailable (Disney rep says that could change). Other option is Port Orleans-Riverside. It would be nice not to have to deal w/ a car (parking costs at parks,hotel) IF the buses are truly a convenience. Any know if we should expect to wait much for the shuttles at this time of year? We'll be there Dec 15-20. We're ok staying at a less fancy Disney resort knowing that we can just take shuttles and also that the room will be very clean but basic. Also considering The New Wyndham hotel which seems to be pretty close and very nice w/ space for all of us. We've been waiting a long time to go back- 8 yrs- and want to have a great trip, so any advice is welcome! Not too concerned with the food/cooking issue, just convenience and the best possible place to stay. One note...we will be going to Universal one day, too. Thanks for helping!!!
