Only thing you do at the hotel is eat and sleep and then its off to the parks
Park hopper is a must so you can go when you have seen everything at that park
also you can go to whatever fireworks at night (animal kingdom has none)
And we take a taxi to universal for one day
Yes, they do have night time events in the theme parks that are not available to the people not staying at resorts. (I think that's what you were getting at)
I stayed at one of the resorts last spring and it was right around $150 a night for two people. We didn't go to the theme parks, just Downtown Disney, didn't have any kids with us and I wasn't about to buy a ticket just to go wander around.
