DLH or SL

We have stayed at SL before but never DLH. Currently when we plan to go DLH is 800 more... for that 800 you get to stay at DLH rather than SL and you get premium half board dining including the character meals etc...

I priced up SL with character meals (paying for the extra meals) and it comes to around 300 cheaper - so DLH is basically an extra 300 just to stay at that hotel.

Do you think it is worth the price difference?

There will be 2 adults, 5 year old and a 1year old.

Just come back from our 4th stay at the DLH and in my opinion it's worth it.
Fantastic location, lovely hotel - rooms maybe just looking like a refurb shouldn't be too far away, but you are literally a couple of minutes from the park, if you have children that's a real positive.

I would say it is worth the extra, the interior of the hotel is a delight, and the buffet breakfast a real feast.

I would say it is not essential but if you can afford it, go for it. The location is the big draw.

If you can afford it then yes definitely! We stayed there in March with a 4 year old and it's so much more convenient!

Id definitely do it.

Weve stayed at SL and DLH before (two adults plus one child - 4yo the first trip, 5yo the next). I loved SQL but doing DLH did feel really special plus it was super convenient being right next to the park. We could be slower getting out in the mornings, arriving and checking in (and then getting straight to the park) was quicker, getting home tired after the fireworks was no distance at all. We went back to the hotel for a swim one afternoon which we totally wouldnt have bothered with if wed had a 10+ min walk each way. Easily worth an extra 300 IMO.

Really the distance is not that far. Compared to say Riverside at WDW all the rooms are close. Go for what you want

Everything is frustratingly slower with children in tow though! Honestly - my eldest is a great walker and can easily cover 10+ miles in a day, but even still we really felt the difference of being right at the park entrance vs the other side of the lake.

I wouldn't bother.

Personally I'd rather have the walk through the village everyday and spend the saved money on nice meals or merchandise...
