You totally can stay on Disney property for that amount ( but no incl or hot tubs). Pop century was close and transport is provided. I am sure there are others on that level. We loved it there but we also really wanted the disney experience ( oversized theme decor etc..)

 

 We had groceries delivered to the room- you could even amazon order a box to hotel for snacks etc. we ordered bananas, snacks, oj, bottled water, soda etc… Much less $$$ and even though we ate out tons it helped kids we were with and $$ for drinks most def.

 

i love Disney world and since we decided to take 3 weeks off work we are going multiple places so we will get our Disney mr and mrs ears too! Have fun!

Agree with @soinlove79: there is a lot of latitude in pricing when it comes to the various accommodation options that Disney offers… you need to do some more research

The incredible thing about Orlando is it is very competitive… and has literally 100s of accommodation options (be it Hotels, Resorts or Condos)

My Best Advice is check out TripAdvisor, you should be able to see a lot of different options on there and get an idea as to location, pricing etc.

Hope this helps

If you can stay at a Disney property, you’ll get to spend SO much more time in the parks! And that’s why y’all are going to Disney, right? We go to Disneyworld every year with my in laws. And I can say with 100% certainty that staying on Disney property = 2 or 3 hours of extra time in the parks. Every day. You’d be amazed at how long the transportation can take otherwise!

Also, Disney stays open late for Extra Magic Hours… But ONLY for people staying on Disney property.

Definitely check out Pop Century and the Disney All Star resorts. They’re a good deal. Once you’re there, buy groceries and you’ll save a TON of money. We make breakfast in the room, make sandwiches and take them and some snacks with us into the parks, and eat in a Disney restaurant just once a day.

Your wedding is in Florida, do you live there?  They give discounts on tickets and Disney hotels to residents.

Their value hotels start at $90 a night so you might check those out, it saves a lot of time when you can just walk out of your hotel and be taken immediately to the entrance of the different parks.

I don’t know of any specific hotels nearby but there are a LOT, many are typical chain hotels so I don’t think you’d have a problem finding one.  I would look on one of the travel sites and use the map view to see how close certain ones are.

I would definitely reconsider a Disney resort. We ordered groceries online and they were delivered to our room upon our arrival. We ate breakfast in the room before we left every day. Took Disney transportation to and from the parks and airport (saving on rental car and $$ daily parking at the parks). Buy a Disney Dining Plan (sometimes they offer these for free or really inexpensively) and if you tell them you are on your honeymoon, I’m sure there are even more perks!

@raziel1687:  do you happen to be going during Easter break week? That might be why. usually the week before or the week after is Easter break.

If you want to stay on Disney property, I’d just pack some protein bars or something that you can eat quickly for breakfast. The Orlando area is ridiculously expensive, so you’re going to have to compromise somewhere. You can get snacks at a reasonable price in the parks on the go, so you could also pick up $10-20 worth of something at a kiosk for breakfast which doesn’t drive the hotel price up by much.

Tell your FI to cook his own breakfast or better yet, he should be cooking for you 🙂

In all seriousness, since you are within driving distance to Disney, why not pack breakfast foods like fruit/cereal/granola and do a light breakfast and bigger lunch? I think it sounds a little crazy to rule out hotels because they don’t include breakfast.

@raziel1687:  no advicve for off property. But we spent half of our honeymoon in Disneyworld, and we stayed at the Boardwalk Inn….LOVED it! We could walk to Epcot and  Hollywood Studios in under 15min from our hotel…we stayed in the parks late for magic hours and used the transport…and the dinning plan was MORE then enough food for us…

 

 

 

 

Had to share some pics….
