I may already be late to the game, but we just booked a family vacation to Disney World. Our family of four is going, and planning to meet up with grandparents + aunts / uncles. As we are the ones with the kids, we were hoping to stay on-site at a Disney World hotel, the dates re 2/16 - 2/21. I did a quick parse through the Hotwire deals, but it was hard for me to tell which ones might actually be on-property, and I'm looking for the more centrally located ones (like close to Epcot or Magic Kingdom), so was hoping for some tips from folks who might have a little more experience or knowledge of the area.
I also looked through things like Costco deals, which did seem to still have the Dolphin / Swan, but where they make you buy a package that includes tickets. The grandparents are kindly supplying tickets, which is why it would be nice to find just a hotel and not have to worry about the park tickets as well.
To be more succinct - for hotel help, looking for 3.5* or greater, in the area in / around Epcot / Magic Kingdom, from 2/16 - 2/21, no greater than $400 a night.
Help or pointers are greatly appreciated - thank you!
