    Do you get the same benefits staying at Disney Springs as one of the Disney resorts?

    Hi, Cheryl!

    The seven Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels are lovely! Some have really great pools, others are just steps away from being in the middle of all the fun of Disney Springs

    However, please know that these hotels are not going to offer the same perks and benefits that you will receive if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. These are not Disney owned properties, and therefore do not qualify for perks such as Disney's Magical Express airport transfers, complimentary MagicBands, complimentary standard parking at the theme parks, and early booking for FastPass+ just to name a few items. 

    If you decide to stay at one of these hotels, make sure to read the fine print for additional resort fees, resort parking fees, and the transportation options to the theme parks. You do not want to have any surprises on your hotel bill at the end of your stay!

    That said, there are many room options at these resorts, so you might find it to be a handy place to stay. Do some research, add up the costs, and figure out what will work best for your family during your magical visit to Walt Disney World!
