Staying inside the park allows you to use Disney transportation so you don't have to drive to the parks. It allows you to take midday breaks easier by not have to leave the Disney porperty. It allows you early entry into certain parks on certain days. You can have your purchases delivered to your room so you don't have to carry them around with you. I think parking is about $6-8 dollars a day at each park. If you stay at a Disney hotel you can still use your own car to get to each park and don't have to pay for parking. They give you a pass. We have gone to Disney many times. We did stay outside of the Disney property once but didn't care for it.
BTW--if you have AAA you get a discount on the Disney property hotels.
