Staying offsite?

I never stay offsite. EVER. Since the very first time I stayed on property, I just cannot make myself do it, even if it is less expensive.

That being said, I know there are people who do stay off property. I don't discriminate, so I wanted to share a tip from someone I know who stays off site frequently. She has 2 kids, and she recognizes that those kids might need a nap in the middle of the day. Smart lady, I say. BUT they usually take the shuttle to and from the hotel, and they don't want to waste valuable park time communiting to take a nap.

Both of her little ones are still stroller age, so she hops on the monorail and takes it over to The Polynesian or The Grand Floridian. She finds a secluded spot, parks the strollers, and she and her husband bring out a book. (Yes, she has a husband, but he has not been mentioned as of yet, because let's be real--how much do the husbands do with the planning!) They let the kids take a nap while they relax a little and read.

This same plan could easily be used in one of the parks, depending on how cool it is outside. Every parks has plenty of nooks and crannies to tuck away in while your little ones take a brief and much needed siesta.

Of course, if you stayed on property, you could easily take the bus back. :) But then again, I'm a little biased, in case you hadn't noticed.
