A Walt Disney World vacation is even more magical when you stay on property in a Disney Resort hotel! There’s just something about being so close to the magic for the entirety of your stay. Ready to book a Disney Resort hotel for your next trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth? Here are four reasons to stay on property at Walt Disney World!

Extra Magic Hours
One major perk of staying close to the parks is Extra Magic Hours. Take advantage of extra time in the parks before they’ve opened for the day or after they’ve closed for the night with this exclusive complimentary service. Extra Magic Hours allows on-property guests to spend an extra hour or two inside of a select park compared to those who stay off grounds! This extra time will guarantee even more Disney fun and usually shorter lines for those must-do attractions that tend to have much longer wait times. You’d be amazed how much you’ll be able to see and do during these special extra hours!

Complimentary Transportation
Disney really knows how to roll out the red carpet for its guests and make them feel like VIPs. For guests traveling from the Orlando International Airport, the Magical Express offers complimentary transportation straight to your Disney Resort hotel! This service even sends you special tags for your checked bags which eliminates the stress of waiting around in baggage claim for your bags to arrive; just simply wait for them to arrive in your room a few hours later. In addition to transportation from the airport to your hotel, Disney also offers complimentary bus, ferry boat, and monorail transportation to its many Disney Resort hotel guests!  

Amazing Amenities
Disney Resort hotels have tons of activities for guests of all ages. From stunning pools to nightly movie showings, spa facilities, and food options in every price range, there’s a lot to see and do once you’ve made it back to your resort for the night. Although the amenities are unique at each Disney Resort hotel, guests are welcome to resort hop around property and experience the options at other hotels. This includes Walt Disney World Resort hotel pools! So if you’re staying Disney’s All-Star Sport Resort, you’re welcome to hop over to Disney’s Polynesian Resort and enjoy their pool while watching the nightly fireworks.

Fastpass+ Reservations
Guests staying on property in a Disney Resort hotel have the ability to book Fastpass+ reservations for their vacation up to 60 days in advance! While guests staying off grounds will be able to book their Fastpass+ reservations up to 30 days in advance, this extra month of planning may help you to book those more difficult attractions like Slinky Dog Dash and Flight of Passage. Booking a reservation on property will also include fun reminders and milestones throughout your vacation planning experience, such as the opening of dining reservations, Fastpass+ reservations, and MagicBand customization! All of these exciting steps will help you to get more excited for your upcoming Disney vacation.

As you can see, it can really pay to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel! Thanks to Disney’s many wonderful perks and amenities, you can truly unwind while vacationing at the Most Magical Place on Earth.
