Walt Disney World | family travel

Q:  Hi Playground, Are you still up on the Walt Disney World scene? We’re finally taking our son, now 9, before he’s too old (it’s borderline already). My husband researched and we’re wondering about either spending more money on a resort that might be fun in itself, or going for something like an inexpensive condo that would just be a comfortable place to sleep.
