At other parks, where food is the more standard amusement park fare, then lodging and ticket discounts are key.
I need to vote twice.
I like free food, free nights, or a regular old discount. These things really save you money. These things give park-goers increased flexibility. That's what we all want.
Literally, we shaved off almost two hundred bucks a person just by making that decision. It's a shame, since I was really hoping to stay at a Universal resort for once. :/
But the prices for when we were going were just absolutely outrageous.
I also find it interesting that people greatly preferred the Universal-style front of line benefit to the Disney-style early admission or free ground transport.
