Hotel or House?

What do others think about renting a house on vacation versus staying in a hotel? I was looking at a Florida rental vacation
site where you can rent homes and condos, and noted that you could rent a decent-sized house, with a pool for 6 nights for under $1000. That is certainly better than the easily $200 night hotels rooms. Of course, no daily maid service or room service, and you'd have to drive to Disneyworld (which is the only reason I would be staying in Florida), but still. Lots of room for the kids to spread out, full kitchen, all the comforts of home, without the daily chores! We almost planned that for a coast vacation this year, but it didn't work out for us due to all the unexpected events of the summer. Maybe next year :)

look into DVC (Disney Vacation club). We got it and have a number of points we get each year that we can use can even bank points so you have double the point. I'll email more information.

Sounds good. I'd love more information from an insider. I've looked into it on the internet a couple times, and believe I decided that for this time in our life, it's a bit out of reach, since we'd still have to pay for airfare and resort tickets. Still, eventually, it may be something really good for us.

I prefer vacation homes to hotels. Most homes have nicer amenities in them (games, dvd players, even movies in some!) I don't like how un homely hotels can be!
