    Do you suggest staying at one of the Disney property hotels or paying less and staying off site? Not sure if the dining plan will be that beneficial to us since we never eat 3 meals a day and we are travelling with picky 3 and 5 year olds sons.

    Hi, Lisa! There are many more reasons to stay on-site at Walt Disney World than just getting the Dining Plan.  My favorite perk is the Extra Magic Hours at the parks.  This is when only Walt Disney World Guests are allowed in the park for extra time.  I also like using Disney's Magical Express.  When I check my bags at my home airport, I don't touch them again until they are in my room.  Disney transportation is also a good benefit. Plus, there's the convenience of being so close, and Disney's Guest service is the best anywhere.  The prices of the Value Resorts are comparable to off-site hotels.
