Walt Disney World Hotels

Why you should consider staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel first
1
Better Room Quality
Many Disney hotel rooms are among the best designed and appointed anywhere. Plus, they're maintained much better than the average hotel room in Orlando.
2
Convenient Transportation
Commuting to the Parks using the Disney transportation system is easy, especially if you stay in a hotel connected by monorail, boat, Skyliner, or walking paths.
3
Priority Park Reservations
Disney's park reservation system holds a certain number of reservation slots to be used only by Disney resort guests. Thus, even if no park reservations remain others, Disney resort guests might still be able to get reservations.
4
Extra Park Access
Disney hotel guests can enter theme parks at least 30 minutes early every day via Early Theme Park Entry, and some get access to Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. This means extra time in the theme parks not available to the general public, and in some cases shorter waits in line for Disney's most popular rides.
5
No Resort Fees
Unlike most hotels outside of Walt Disney World, Disney doesn't charge a mysterious "resort fee" on top of its advertised rates.
