If you would like to have a super evening at Disney Springs or Boardwalk, it's great to stay in one of the Disney Resort hotels that has a ferry service to these spots. In addition, you save $17 on the parking at Disney World if you stay iat any Disney resort hotel.
It's super fun to catch the ferryboat from your hotel to an attraction. It's so much nicer than getting in your car again. At night it's romantic to take the ferry boat over to Disney Springs. You can do this from three of the resorts: Port Orleans, Old Key West, and Saratoga Springs. Port Orleans is the most affordable.
Another great spot to be able to ride to is Boardwalk, where there are street performers and restaurants. You can take a ferryboat to Boardwalk, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios from these resorts: Boardwalk, Beach Club, Yacht Club, World Dolphin and World Swan. World Dolphin and Swan are the most affordable of these.
You can catch a ferryboat to Magic Kingdom from these resorts: Grand Floridian, Contemporary, Polynesian, and Wilderness.
All Disney resorts have dancing and games for the kids by the pool. The lower priced resorts are quite barren though with no shade or trees at all by the pool. This is awful in the Florida sun! The ritzier Disney resorts have beautiful greenery and calmer pools with shade, but they are very expensive. There are poolside movies and marshmallow toasts at some of the resorts.
