We went for our honeymoon and stayed at the African themed hotel.  It’s in the higher end category, but not as high as the contemporary or Grand Floridan etc. We got a free upgrade to one of the Savannah view rooms which was super cool to wake up in the morning and see what animal was outside your window on any given day. 

If we go again, I think we’d choose one of the hotels that’s accessible by the ferry.  We’d been to Disneyland a couple times each, so we thought we wouldn’t spend THAT much time at Magic Kingdom but we did.

Use the little chat box on the Disneyworld website.  They’re super helpful.

I don’t really know that it’s important.  Each hotel has shuttles to the parks, but sometimes the wait was really long.  For next time I just thought it might be nice to have an alternative, and it seemed like the ferry to the Wilderness Lodge and New Orleans hotels came a bit more often and fit more people, a bit more convenient to the park where we spent the most time. 

If you had a car, you’d probably just park it at your hotel and use the shuttles still.  The shuttles bring you right up to the parks, whereas the park’s parking lots are quite far away… You’d probably end up having to pay to park, and then have to take a shuttle from the lot anyway!

Oh, and if you’re not an “adventurous” eater, you may be a bit stuck for food during downtime at the hotel.  Even the fast food stuff was African themed, like Pizza with corn and african spices.

We want to go to Disneyworld too!! BUUT, we had heard that Disneylanders (we’ve been there 15 times this year, and we’re going again on thursday!) have a hard time with Disneyworld and vice versa, so we’re a wee bit nervous… We also want to do a Disney cruise too, so there are SO many options! I’d call up Disney Fairytale Weddings and Honeymoons at (800) 370-6009, they’ll know all the answers to your questions and can probably set you up with the best locations to make the best of your visit too! EEEEEE, how exciting!

I would suggest going to Epcott and Universal stuidos, too, if you have the time! I think those are way more fun than actual Disney World…for adults, anyway!

The first place you should look is at http://www.disboards.com  It’s a forum, similar to this, where you can learn anything and everything about WDW.

WDW has several tiers of resorts on property-value, moderate, deluxe and home away from home. There are also 2 non-Disney owned hotels on property (the Swan and Dolphin) that offer great discounts to nurses, teachers and government employees (often cheaper than the value Disney resorts).

Like a pp said, you can drive to the parks, or take the WDW transportation, Different resorts offer varying methods of transportation (for instance, from Animal Kingdom Lodge, the only transportaion to any park is via the bus system, from the Epcot area hotels, you can take the water launch to Hollywood Studios and Epcot, but have to take a bus to Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom). You can drive (parking is free is you are a Disney resort guest) and is really only a pain for the Magic Kingdom (you can’t park at the park, itself, but instead park at the Ticket and Transportation Center. From there you take a shuttle to either the monorail or the ferry and take that to the park). 

We love WDW and go there a lot. We are going for our anniversary this year, as a matter of fact.

If there’s anything specific I can help with, just ask and I’ll see if I can answer for you

Just saw that you want to go to Universal, too. The DIS boards also has a Universal board, if that would help you

@Future Couture:   Driving to the Magic Kingdom is not the problem. It’s leaving if you stay till park close (unless you are at extra magic hours, then it’s not a problem). We drove there once and it took us an hour to get out of the parking lot at park close. Driving to the other parks is not a problem, but I would really suggest using the WDW transportation system to the Magic Kngdom,
