    Hi Monica!

    Congratulations on the stroke of good luck! I'm glad to hEAR you're planning a trip to Walt Disney World and thanks for stopping by with your planning question.

    I can certainly direct you to Disney's Special Offers link to provide you the current specials for your timeframe. If you'd prefer to speak to a Disney Cast Member, simply call 407-939-7675 for current package prices. I also like visiting the unofficial site for additional savings that may be floating around out there!

    I believe you were meaning to say there will be 5 in your travel party, and therefore you'll need to consider specific accommodations for larger parties. Check out the link I've provided for Rooms for 5 Guests or More to decide whether or not staying on property is a value for you. 

    When staying at a Disney owned and operated Resort Hotel, guests are able to take advantage of complimentary transportation to and from the airport aboard Disney's Magical Express, complimentary transportation to Disney Theme Parks, Water Parks and Downtown Disney throughout your stay, Extra Magic Hours, complimentary parking and the ability to purchase the Disney Dining Plan. 

    Guests who have stayed on and off property will likely tell you the overall theming and magic they experience at a Disney Resort Hotel becomes well worth the added cost, especially when adding in the value of amenities listed above.

    I wish you luck with your decision, Monica, and please visit me again if you have additional planning questions.
