If your wanting personal reference to special select villas I couldn't say. I would say well if your going to disney get a cheap block of rooms for less than a villa, only because your objective would never be to eat and relax in a villa/home type accomadations. (spelling) Unless you need some down time. But if your going for disney only spend as cheap a hotel as you can find and spend the extra on food at disney while taking in the attractions. KNOW YOU will not want to pack peanut butter and Jelly. Or cheese and ham sandwiches. Plan on which way your "eating" "relaxing" and make a decision from there. When we went we crashed on the beds and got up as early as we could and drove through mcdonalds or whatever and arrived to take in as much attractions as we could. If you go often or... are not trying to take in as much as you can then a villa might be for your 'group' either way do a search online and order all the free florida brochures you can and then book 3-4 months preferrably ahead of time. Maybe more if villas are fuller. Don't go in june july or august. They are not only hottest months but from experience I can say it's one of the busiest times and too hot. If you cannot go any other than during then well ok but plan on going earliest in the am take a break around 1-3 or 4 and then plan on hanging out til the park closes at the latest times since even though they are the hottest months the parks are open the longest from the earliest to the latest at those time of year. Hey if you did it easiest you could drive through and leave for a late lunch/and pack a snack for dinner maybe with all that villa/fridge stove micro dishes going on. Personally the last thing I wanted to do was cook when I was trying to pack my days with attractions and if you have to go in the hottest months get maps and plan your "trip" around a park so that you sit in air conditioned threatres for shows during the hottest times of the day. But really a good idea to download or order free maps ahead of time. Mostly plan as much as you can for spray bottles of water or whatever and have a good time. Good Luck. Hey download those pictures afterwards huh?
