    Becky – Keep in mind that if you already have at least a 4 day ticket, adding a 5th to 7th is only about $15 a person. So even if you only spend a few hours in a park, $15 is worth it.

    We will be getting to Orlando late afternoon and I dont want to use a ticket for 1/2 a day. We’d like to ride the monarail that eveNing. If I get dinner reservations at one of the hotels on the monarail route can we park at the hotel and ride the monarail for free?

      Becky, the monorail is always free, whether you have a dinner reservation or not.

    Hi!
    I found this site a few months ago and I really enjoy reading all the articles and great advice!!! Keep ’em coming please!
    That being said, I was wondering if you could offer some advice for our particular situation… I’ve read the ‘large families’ articles which have been very interesting. Here goes:
    We plan on travelling to Disney from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in the next few years… all children will be between 5-11 years old (although I’m aware rides work on height an not age!). This will most likely be our one and only trip to Disney World (I’ve never been as a child). The catch: I will be travelling with my entire family, which means 9 adults and 7 children (maybe a baby). We would like to all stay in the same unit (that be an off-site rental house or on-site condo). I am aware that you strongly recommend staying on-site, which I think will be our ultimate decision, but can Disney accomodate such a large group? And will we be paying an arm and a leg to stay there? Would it be better if we stayed in separate rooms? Although we want to have a very nice experience, since this will most likely be our only trip, we don’t want to spend exhuberant amounts of money either…! Lastly, 2 of the adults are teachers, therefore, we will probably have to travel during: Christmas, March Break or summer (end-June to end-August)… I’m thinking summer.
    Is there any further advice you can provide for our group? I will be purchasing the suggested material as we approach our trip, but I am looking to start budgeting now and make the most of our trip!
    Thank you!

    Christine

    Sorry, you were probably helpful to others, but not to me.

    My family and I are driving. We are staying off the site. There is only 3 of us, and my LO is free (age 2). So, meals, and souvenirs, do we really need $7000 like you suggested?

      Kirsitna, as the page says, $7k only applies to families of 4, all 3 or older, staying at the Polynesian. Your visit–assuming your hotel is a lot cheaper–will be much less expensive!!!
