    Are you able to travel from one resort to another to use your dining plan and use their amenities? What time does the Magic Express Bus stop running? What are the best Disney hotels for 5 people, 2 of which are kids?

    Hi, Kimberly!

    Your Disney Dining Plan credits are good at all participating restaurants throughout property. So feel free to enjoy Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary, or Beaches and Cream at the Beach Club. With so many options, it can be hard to decide. While visiting another resort, you are welcome to enjoy their shopping, dining, or entertainment, but pool use is for the exclusive use of that resort's guests (no pool hopping!)

    Bus service generally runs 1 hour prior to park opening, and continues 2 hours after park closing. Buses run later to Disney Springs. The bus drivers usually announce the time of the last bus back to your resort, but feel free to ask him/her any questions when exiting the bus. We have enjoyed the magic of Disney deep into the night and have never had a problem catching a bus back to our resort. But for any night owls, double check the bus route hours.

    Disney offers many room options for parties of 5 or more guests, ranging from Value Resort Family Suites to DVC deluxe 2 bedroom suites. Read through your options here to decide your needs and what will fit your budget.

    Wishing you a magical vacation to Walt Disney World!
