    First trip to WDW with husbank and 3 kids (aged 10 and 7 - twins) and am seeking advice on whether it's worth it to stay at one of the WDW resorts. The dfference in hotel costs is significant (WDW = $400 and Sheraton =$200). Advice?

    Hi Danielle-fellow mom of twins!!!

    We have stayed many times off Walt Disney World property....and I will say that it is a different experience. I really do prefer to stay on site!
    When you stay at a Walt Disney World resort, you are surrounded by magic!  

    For us....also a family of 5 it is easier  to do more and see more when you stay on property.
    It took the stress of driving to and from the parks away-which also saved us money.

    You have to do what is right for your family.  If you have never stayed at a Walt Disney World resort, it really is a must do. You will be treated so well and have such an incredible experience that I am sure you will always stay at a Walt Disney World Resort!

    HERE is a link with more information on the benefits of staying on property.

    Good luck in your decision.

    Have  a magical vacation!
