Going to WDW for a Disney Institute class on September 24. Thinking about going down a few days early for fun on my own or w a friend. The class and all those expenses are paid for of course, and I am looking for a hotel for the days before. I was hoping to avoid a rental car and none of the budget hotels on property are available. Even with my Marriott family discount the Swan is about $250/night with taxes and resort fees. Any thoughts on something close--but more budget friendly? The springhill suites at flamingo crossing is a good rate but I don't really know how close it is. Help?
