Sure, your hotel room may possibly have the newest television next to a tiny couch and pearly white sheets on each of the beds, but is that really on the top of the priority list when it comes to finding a great place to stay? The small square of a room with a small couch that can barely hold all of you at the same time is simply not going to be comfortable. When you rent a home or a villa*, you are automatically guaranteed more space for the kids to run around and have fun in. You will save yourself the headache of feeling cramped and overcrowded and allow for more space to be taken advantage of within the home.
Often times hotels provide the typical mini fridge packed with a total of two water bottles and enough room to fit one of the four take home boxes you just brought back from a restaurant down the street.

The cons being that you, of course, cannot walk straight out of your hotel and be a few steps from Disney parks, which is the main reason why people forego the rental homes and villas idea. Another con is that if you do have kids who need to take several breaks during the day of excitement and fun, you will most likely have to take a car that you rented and head back to the home. Though these are often minor and again, make up a shorter list compared to the many pros of renting a home, you will just have to decide for yourselves what the top priorities will need to be.
