    What benefits are given to staying at an Official Walt Disney World hotel?

    Howdy, Alyson! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip is quickly approaching! I hear that Mickey is anxious for your arrival! You are going to cherish every moment at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Staying at an official Walt Disney World Resort hotel is my preferred way to travel! There are so many benefits, it’s hard to list them all! But, I will give you a few of my favorite resort hotel perks!

    First, I love that I get Extra Magic Hours. Every day, guests staying at participating Disney Resort hotels will have access to enjoy magic, inside at least one of the 4 theme parks, before or after the regular operating hours! I love taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours!

    My next favorite perk is that everyone in my party receives complementary MagicBands! MagicBands are nifty little bracelets that can hold your admission tickets, dining reservations, FastPass+ reservations, hotel room key, credit card information, and so much more! I love that everything I need is on my wrist, and that a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation provides a complementary one for me to use!

    Another advantage to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is the access to Disney Dining Plans! These dining plans allow guests to pre-pay for snacks, Quick-Service and Table Service meals across the Walt Disney World Resort property. I constantly rave about the ease and value that the Disney Dining Plans give me! They are exclusive for guests staying at Disney Resort hotels, and this is probably my favorite benefit!

    Early access to FastPass+ reservations, complementary transportation between Orlando International Airport and the other resorts and theme parks, and other services name just a few additional perks to staying at a hotel on the Walt Disney World Resort property! If you want to learn more, visit the Benefits of Staying at Disney Resort Hotels page for more information!

    I hope your time at Walt Disney World is beyond magical, Alyson! If you have any additional questions, give a little whistle to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and we will be happy to assist you in any way that we can!
