7 Reasons to Stay in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel
...that you'll struggle to disagree with!
Still trying to convince yourself you don’t need to stay at a Disney hotel? These reasons may not help…

1. Extra Magic Hours


Extra Magic Hours


When you book a stay at a Walt Disney World hotel, one of the biggest benefits is getting to go into different parks each day an hour earlier than other guests or staying an extra hour after the park ‘closes’ to off-site guests. Each day, a different park opens early or closes late for on-site guests, which means you get to enjoy up to an extra 2 hours of fun inside the park with fewer crowds! This is an amazing perk, especially during peak times where you’ll see considerably shorter wait times for your favourite attractions, even without a FastPass+ reservation.


2. Free Transportation


Disney's Magical Express


Free Disney transportation picks you up from the airport and drops you and your luggage off safely at your Disney Resort hotel with Disney’s Magical Express. This completely free service operates not only between your hotel and the airport (so you can use it on the way back too), but between your hotel and all of the 6 Disney Parks that make up Walt Disney World. You’ll save so much money on parking (which can be up to $20 a day!), as well as on car rental charges, insurance and petrol.


3. Incredible Theming


Finding Nemo Suite


Every Disney hotel has a unique and colourful theme which extends throughout the whole property, whether you book a value, moderate or a deluxe resort hotel. When you book a value resort hotel think vibrant and colourful classic Disney, for moderate think understated Disney charm and for deluxe think elaborate Disney destination theming from films such as the Lion King and Moana.


4. 14 Days for the Price of 7 on Disney Theme Park Tickets

When you book your Walt Disney World hotel and theme park tickets at the same time, you'll get 14 days for the price of 7 on Disney Theme Park tickets. That means twice the fun for a fraction of the price!


5. Proximity to the Parks


Walking Disney Parks


In some cases, you can be so close to the parks at your Walt Disney World hotel, that you can WALK to a Disney Theme Park. Both Disney’s BoardWalk and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club hotels are within walking distance of Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios for example. For the other parks, Disney’s free transportation is always on hand to make sure you get to the Parks as quickly and as stress-free as possible.


6. Early access to Disney’s FastPass+



One of Disney’s best resources, it’s FastPass+ skip the line planning feature, is available completely free to all Disney park guests. However, when you book an on-site stay, you’ll have access to the tool to book your attraction FastPass+ reservations a whole 30 days before off-site guests, meaning you’re much more likely to get the attractions you’d like to ride at your ideal time. As anyone who’s been to Walt Disney World before knows, getting your FastPass+ reservations right is very serious business, so this is a huge perk!

7. MagicBands



Every on-site Disney Resort hotel guests receives a free MagicBand with their booking, which allows them to enter their room, activate their FastPass+ reservations and even pay for things they buy within the resort! You can pick which colour you'd like and everyone in the party receives them so you can mix 'n' match or go for a team colour...
