WOW! Where to begin....
NE to WDW: I can't really help you. It might help others if you said you plan on camping along the way or rushing to get there ASAP.
There are peak times at WDW, usually around holidays and school breaks.
Flying gets you there faster, of course. There are cabins at Ft. Wilderness, so you don't need your own trailer to stay there. There are also folks that rent out trailers in Ft. Wilderness, if you really want to stay in a trailer but not tow your own.
By 'hotel' do you mean a Disney Resort?
The boys will be at great ages!
Planning for 2016 now, an excellent idea. Just FYI, we have reservations for FT Wilderness for the last 2 weeks of Oct. this year. DW found out today that 'The Fort' is now booked up for that time, except for tent sites.
To get the most for your money, you'll need to learn about the parks, accommodations, attractions, meals, etc
. There are online sites, in addition to Disney's, with info. There are travel agents that are free to you that specialize in Disney vacations. There are books to buy or maybe through your local library, with information. And there are those of us on this site and 'Fort Fiends' that can help, too.
Using the 'search' on this site, see what you can learn from 'Grumpy'. He has posted often on Disney, especially 'The Fort.'
Happy searching and just ask if want more info.
