When planning your Disney vacation, you may wonder what the difference is between staying at a Disney owned resort and a regular hotel. Here are the many wonderful benefits you’ll receive when you choose a Disney resort!
Use your all-in-one MagicBand to access Disney theme parks, unlock your Disney resort hotel room, check in at FastPass+ entrances for previously selected attractions and entertainment, make payments at shops and restaurants and more. Plus, as a Resort hotel Guest, you can even customize a MagicBand with your name and choice of colors! Unfamiliar with MagicBands? Check them out here!
Complimentary Resort Transportation & Parking
Motor coaches, ferryboats and the world-famous monorail provide simple, convenient ways to explore all the parks at Walt Disney World Resort. Plus enjoy complimentary parking at all theme parks and resort hotels! Some hotels not owned by Disney may charge a parking fee per day to park at your hotel, and add that to the charge to park at the theme parks if you aren’t staying with Disney, and this can add up quickly!
Choose from over 100 Dining locations to enjoy Disney pre-purchased dining plans for any budget and any dining taste.
Complimentary Airport Service
Skip baggage claim with Disney’s Magical Express, a complimentary round trip service that takes you between Orlando International Airport and your Disney Resort hotel via motor coach—and delivers your luggage straight to your hotel room!
Advance FastPass+ Reservations
Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels get first access to reserve a limited number of Disney FastPass+ attractions, shows and more per day—up to 60 days before they arrive! It’s a great way to experience the most popular rides without the wait of regular lines.
Extra Magic Hours
Experience more magic with Extra Magic Hours and extended park hours available exclusively to Disney Hotel Guests
Tons of activities and amenities for both adults and children such as outdoor Disney movie screenings, themed pools, and most importantly the Disney details in every room that just make it so much more of an experience!
