I stayed in The Warlt Disney Swan for 4 nights. I got a very good deal through insider. The good thing for staying in Disney hotel is we have the extra magic hour, meaning we can stay on for another 3 hours after the park is officially closed. We can take the opportunity to do all those rides which were not possible to enjoy during the day due to peak US national day weekend.
We only purchased two way airport to hotel shuttle (I will check my CC bill tonight on the actual cost)....local shuttle are FOC to all the Disney theme parks.
Not much shopping there because I have done all in Miami We only bought some sovenior stuffs at downtown Disney.. If you want hardcore shopping, there is a Chelsea Premium outlets near Kissimee area http://www.premiumoutlets.com/ , you will have to book a cab or drive....and at least half a day to spare in the outlet, so think twice before you go
Meals etc are all settled in the theme park itself, a bit ex but that's the best way to kill some time while waiting for the fast pass rides....also to rest our feet.
