    Smile Off-site Accommodations

    Hi all ~

    We're headed to WDW in September for our Fall Break. I need a clean, affordable place to lay our weary heads on Friday night before we check in Saturday and get started in the parks. We'll drive all day to get to Orlando. It would be great if they had breakfast included. Family of 3!

    Any particularly good ones?

    Any no-no's?

    Thanks!!


    All the best Disney days to you!

    Use Priceline or Hotwire or something like that. There is a good hotel called Clarion that has a water park on it was pretty cool, but they did charge a resort fee. STAY AWAY from Days Inn Suites by Old town. Absolutely awful place. Another search engine I use is Choicehotels.com. They have a AAA discount program too. My Sister in law stays at the Ramada Inn and swear by it less than 2 miles from Main gate. There is a HOJO on 192 just east of I4 and only 2 miles from the entrance but doesn't have a comp breakfast but the shoney's within walking distance. When I'm in the rig this is where I stay and its easy In and out. Old but very clean. Usually pay 31.00 per nite.

    When I moved down there, before I could move into my apartment we stayed in the Country Inn and Suites, it's right near downtown disney. If you're hitting all the parks this is a pretty convenient centralized location. I know they had breakfast. I can't speak for the price (the parents were with and footed the bill ) but i would assume that it's in about the same price range as most decent off site hotels. It got the job done for what we needed it for. (sleep, shower)

    I stayed at the Continental Plaza Hotel in Kissimmee and had a very nice experience with them. They do offer breakfast and it is rather good. The continental Plaza Hotel is a mile and a half from the gates.

    They just remodeled and reopened the Howard Johnson's on the strip of hotels that is near downtown Disney, on Disney Property, but just lack the perks of Disney Hotels. Prices for off season were really good.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    The Embassy Suites Lake Buena Vista is only a mile from the entrance to Hotel Plaza Boulevard and they serve a free cooked to order breakfast for every guest daily. I've personally never stayed there but Embassy is a reputable chain and I've driven by the hotel many times and it looked very nice.
