Walt Disney World is one of the top vacation destinations in the world. From tickets to transportation and stay, there are so many options to consider when planning your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Whether you’re looking to splurge and stay on property or save some cash and stay a drive away, there are lodging options for any price range. One of Walt Disney World’s best-kept hotel secrets are their Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels. Here are a few reasons why it pays to stay near Disney Springs!

Close to the Magic
Whether resorts on property are all booked up, or you’re just looking to stay somewhere with more bang for your buck, the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels are the perfect solution to those planning to stay close to the magic. Since you’re walking distance from Disney’s shopping and dining district, you’ve got transportation, entertainment and tons of food options close by. If you’re someone who likes to unwind after a busy park day, taking a step back from the Disney scene may be just what you need with these hotels.

Extra Magic Hours
In the past Extra Magic Hours were only available to guests who stayed at a Walt Disney World Resort. This complimentary park perk allowed on property guests extra access to the parks on select days before it opened to the public or once it had closed for the evening. This magical extra has been extended to the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels along with the ability to book your FastPass+ Reservations up to 60 days in advance!

Hotels with Character
Who says you have to stay on grounds to see Mickey and friends at your resort? In addition to shuttle service from the hotels to the parks, some of the Disney Springs Resort Hotels offer other Disney extras in their locations. From character buffets to Disney gift shops, you’ll feel like you’re getting the full Disney experience while saving on price. So whether you forgot to grab that perfect souvenir and want to do a little more shopping, or are looking for a magical start to your morning, a Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel has you covered.

So next time you plan your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth, don’t forget to look into the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels. With many of the same perks as staying on grounds, the often lower price tag will save you money for more vacation adventures! When you stay at a Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel, the magic is only a short walk away.
