quick budget trip, advice please:)

Hi, we have been to Florida 8 times over the last 25 years, but have always stayed in a villa, with car hire. Our autistic son is 30 in January and as it is his favourite place on earth we were thinking of surprising him with a 7 day trip to just do disney. We spent 18 days there in March this year so, we were thinking low budget! Hotel with free disney shuttle would be helpful. Any ideas on good hotels to try? Needs to have one room for all three of us, preferable with one double and a single, or two doubles. No sofa bed, as he is very tall. Looking for January 2020. Have found on Perfect Holidays 7 nights at Red Lion Hotel incl breakfast and flights with Delta for 855. Anyone stayed there?

Is it worth looking at the Rosen Inn on international drive? Weve not been there but bumped into some people last week who were staying there for a budget holiday and seemed to enjoy it.

I would add though that you might want to consider somewhere with a kitchen as eating out was definitely more expensive this summer

Not stayed at the Red Lion Hotel, our budget trips are usually spent at the Rosen at Pointe which we really love. Its a good location for restaurants and the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Have you tried looking on site? Ive just looked at TC for you and its around 780 each staying at all stars? You wouldnt need transport money as it would be free to parks. Plus your son may find it less stressful with shorter journeys etc! The price may also drop - Thomas Cook usually have cheap last minute deals! X

If you want to be nearer Disney the Clarion Inn seems to be highly recommended on here and Im sure they do free shuttles. The Rosen only did Universal.

I havent stayed at the Rosen but my work colleague has and said it was clean and felt safe. Fine for the low price. I didnt ask about shuttles. There are some UK Vloggers who have stayed there and I think did a room tour. I think it was the Lodge Guys but not 100% sure.
