Staying on Property

Updated: Mar 23

Every Disney resort is just that, a resort. From value to moderate to deluxe, each Disney resort offers outstanding service, quality amenities, and some special extras that you will only get by staying on Disney property. We have a quick look at the perks of staying on site here.

Regardless of where you stay, if you are staying on property at a Disney resort there is a level of service and amenities you can expect. The primary benefit to staying onsite is getting to have a full trip in the “Disney bubble”. Part of why people love to visit Disney is the removal from reality, and staying onsite provides that continuity in your trip. From the time you get to your resort on your first day, to the sad departure at the end you are surrounded by the excellent customer service and magic that Disney provides.

In addition to staying in the bubble, you’ll get some excellent theming at your resort hotels. The type and level of theming will depend where you stay, and what you pay, but even their value level resorts provide fun and immersive theming that can be especially attractive to families.

The proximity you get to the parks can’t be beat, with some of the deluxe resorts situated walking distance to one or more of the parks and only a quick ride to the other parks. Plus, by staying on property the ride to each of the parks and Disney Springs is complimentary. From every resort there are buses, boats, and the skyliner available to transport you from your resort to the fun waiting at the parks.

By staying on property you will also get the benefit of extra time in the parks. Guests of every Disney resort are privy to Early Theme Park Entry, which allows entrance to the parks every morning 30 minutes before official opening time. That 30 minutes might not seem like a lot, but if used correctly will allow you to knock out one or two of the most popular attractions before the park gets crowded. Then if you are staying at a deluxe resort, you get the added benefit of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours on select days at Magic Kingdom or Epcot.

Finally, you will receive the exceptional customer service that Disney is known for. While you can’t expect the moon, the Cast Members are only human, they will and do go above and beyond for their guests. In addition to the amazing Cast Members, each of the resorts offers standard amenities which are listed below.
