Stayed at the Regal Palms Resort in Davenport. Had to pay about $100 of resort fees when we got there that were probably in the fine print that we didn't read. Went to Busch Gardens, SeaWorld, Aquatica, Gatorland, and Cocoa Beach. Everything in the parks is very expensive. Other than that we had a great time.

Excellent place to travel with child. Disney parks are awesome. The traffic is too hard during Christmas and new year. Be prepared for that. Regarding shopping, arrive early in outlets to ensure good and organized clothes.
