So, we're planning a Euro vacation summer of 2018 complete with a couple of days at DLP. Any general tips or advice would be appreciated. After 10-15 minutes of research...I learned that the main advantage to staying at one of the official Disney hotels was that you got early park admission and breakfast. Sounds OK. Looks like other, nice, more inexpensive joints are also walking distance. So, I was wondering if it was generally considered advantageous to stay at a Disney resort or it the consensus was that saving money was the way to go. Also, regardless of Disney or non-Disney, specific hotel recommendations and reasons for recommendations (on the off chance our tastes differ) are appreciated. Thanks in advance.
