    My family and I have been to WDW 3 times in the last 3 years (and we’re going back for a 4th in December!). The first time we took the kids, we stayed off site due to my accumulation of hotel points, so the room was free. It was okay, but the shuttle service was hit and miss.

    The next year, my parents were generous enough to foot the bill for tickets and dining, so we opted to stay on site at a value resort (All Star Movies). That one decision changed my Disney planning forever. For our 10 year anniversary, we chose to step it up a notch and stay at Port Orleans Riverside. Wow! This is how Disney vacations are done!

    In December, our pick is Coronado Springs (mostly due to it being the cheaper option for our budget). The goal is to work our way up to the Grand Floridian, Polynesian, or Animal Kingdom Lodge as the kids get older.

    Needless to say, we will NOT be going to Disney World without staying on site again. 🙂

    Though I live in the Orlando area now, I can NEVER get enough of the resorts at WDW. I’ve had the luck of staying at the Caribbean Beach, Ft. Wilderness Resort and campground and my personal favorite, Wilderness Lodge (during its first Christmas in 1994). My parents, when they came down to check on me (as parents do) stay at Port Orleans-Riverside (when it was known as Dixie Landings). So I’ve seen many of the “levels” and have to say, Disney got it right! I’m hoping to stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Contemporary, eventually.
