    What are the benefits for staying at the Holiday Inn Disney Spring or any other Disney Spring hotel? Is staying at the Swan or Dolphin any different?

    Hiya Stephanie and welcome back to planDisney!

    Thanks for continuing to visit us with all of your Walt Disney World Resort questions. We truly appreciate your vote of confidence. Those of us who regularly visit the Most Magical Place on Earth know that the right hotel can make your vacation feel like once upon a dream. So let's talk you through a couple.

    The most important benefit of staying at the Holiday Inn Orlando- Disney Springs is without a doubt its proximity to Disney Springs. It's only a 10-minute walk or a 3-minute drive! They also offer a coupon booklet for Disney Springs and a shuttle to the Disney Parks that runs hourly and are one of the hotels with access to Early Theme Park Entry.

    The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel and The Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel are also great places to spend your vacation. I recently spent a night at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and there were a few major benefits that will definitely make them an option for future trips.

    Item 1: Transportation. You can cruise on a water taxi from a dock between the hotels to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. There are also shuttles to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Magic Kingdom Park, and Disney Springs.

    Item 2: Extra time in the Disney Parks. Guests of these hotels can use Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. Tailor your park days to your personal style by choosing to get up early or stay up late ... or both!

    Item 3. Proximity to other hotels. Both hotels are within walking distance of Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's BoardWalk, and EPCOT. It's a perfect setup for dining reservations at some great places like Ale & Compass Restaurant for a blueberry-bacon pancake breakfast.

    Stephanie if you keep the magic alive in your heart, anywhere you choose to spend your vacation will feel like a palace.

    Happy planning!
