I've never done offsite as an adult (25-30 years ago as a kid yes) and to me having to fight traffic, driving to the park, parking, walking, tramming etc. would just kill the bubble like you said. I'm glad that it's actually a thing and not just "feelings" or "theoretical". Forget the FP/ADR thing, just having to wake up, pack the car, scream and get everyone moving just to sit in traffic would just ruin my mood.As to the onsite/offsite "debate"...we typically stay onsite. Last year, we stayed offsite because we won the use of a condo in Kissimmee for a week at a school fundraiser. We talk about how it feels like we never even went to WDW last year. It just wasn't the same. We hated driving to the parks and dealing with the parking lots, trams, ferries, etc. I'd much rather take the buses and other WDW transportation. Then there was the lack of FP+ options at 30 days. I was able to eventually get the ADRs I wanted, so that wasn't an issue. To each his/her own of course, but for us...staying offsite simply doesn't compare.
I drive enough in my daily life in traffic.
