|Places To Stay...
This is a tough one to answer since rooms
are at a premium this time of year. Everyone would
like to stay at the same hotel if possible and a number
of you have indicated you would like to stay on Disney
property such as the
Disney's All-Star Movies Resort. The main
problem here is that it is too late to reserve a block
of rooms even if we had everyone's commitment and money.
So the only other option is to make individual
reservations as quickly as possible since they fill up
quickly. This is one of Disney's least expensive
hotels but by checking the current prices, they are
running around $200/night. This is pretty pricey
for many of us so there are other alternatives.
We have personally used
The Seralago Hotel & Suites which is located in
just a couple of miles from Disney and right next to
Old Town. It's not the Ritz, but we have
personally stayed there several times while carrying out
our annual Jingle Bugs Rock show for charity and was
never disappointed. They are very family friendly,
have a variety of rooms for singles and families, and we
found them to be very clean. Their rates currently
are around $85/night and I believe we may be able to get
some type of discount with them as a group. Again,
rooms this time of year are at a premium so we are going
to have to decide quickly and make reservations if we
want to save some money.
Of course, there are plenty of rental homes in the
Disney area within 25-30 minutes drive. You can
research these online and we will be contacting one of
our contacts to see what they may have available.
Some individuals have expressed an interest in sharing a
home for the week. This would be a great way to go
and I'm sure would save you some money. If you are
interested in doing something along this line, I would
suggest that you post it on our
Facebook page and see who else might be interested.
Of course, no matter where you might stay, we will
always be able to meet at a common location before we
start our activities for the day even if it is over
breakfast. If you want to check out the current
prices for hotels in the area, simply go to Google Maps
and plug in Walt Disney World and then look at Hotels
near that location. Some of the larger, more
modern hotels just at the entrance of Disney are a
little more reasonable and have easy access to the
