5 Things You’ll Love About Staying At A Walt Disney World Resort
If you are planning a Walt Disney World vacation on a budget, you may be considering staying off the property or at a non-Disney hotel. There are some reasons to do this, mainly money, but there is also value to choosing a Walt Disney World resort that doesn’t necessarily have a fixed dollar value. Here are some of the reasons you will love booking with Disney.
Total Vacation Vibe
The ultimate reason to stay at a Disney Resort is to get that total vacation vibe. Walt Disney World is in a bubble, and when you insulate yourself in the Disney Bubble, nothing else in the world matters. Staying on property at a Walt Disney World resort ensures that you are wrapped in 360 degrees of Disney 24/7. You can choose the level of relaxation from the resort where you stay. You can live at the pool, favor the nightlife, or have a luxury spa day at your resort of choice.
Themed to Your Character
One of the stand-out things that make Walt Disney World resorts, so fun to stay at is the theming. Every intricate detail down to the most minute decision gets the Disney treatment to support one particular theme. The deluxe and moderate resorts are the best at carrying out a very evocative theme, such as Polynesian Village, Wilderness Lodge, Boardwalk Inn, or Port Orleans Riverside. Some favor value Resorts on the other hand because they seem to have more “Disney” character to their theming. Whichever your preference, it’s all uniquely Disney.
One of the key perks of staying on Walt Disney World property at a Disney Resort is complimentary transportation. You never have to drive, never have to pay for parking (if you don’t have a car). Also, you don’t need a car. You can get anywhere you want by bus, boat, monorail, and soon the Skyliner gondolas. These modes of transportation are incredibly scenic and a considerable part of the charm of Disney.
Disney Park Benefits
The big reason why most people choose to book their stay at a Disney Resort and not somewhere else is the perks. There are benefits to booking your stay with Disney. For starters, you get a free MagicBand and early Fastpass+ selections. You also have access to the Extra Magic Course that happens for different parks throughout the week. These are a great way to maximize the price of a park ticket.
The MagicBand itself is a huge deal, because of all of its uses when you stay at a Disney Resort. It opens the door to your room and allows you to charge purchases around the resort just by touching your MagicBand to a plate and entering a four-digit pin. Using the My Disney Experience App, you can also check into your room remotely by phone!
Finally, I think it’s incredible that Disney Resort guests have access to complimentary transportation to and from the airport via Disney’s Magical Express. The seamless process makes sure you are taken care of as soon as you land in Orlando. Disney cast members even pick up your luggage for you and take it directly to the hotel where you are booked!
