    What are the best resorts to stay at on the property? My friend stayed at Fort Wilderness, but I'm not sure if that's what we are looking for.

    Hello there, Hanina!

    Planning your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation is half the fun. I always enjoy daydreaming about which Disney Resorts Collection hotel I want to stay at next immediately after I leave my last vacation. 

    Some of the things I consider when determining where I want to stay include my budget, the Resort area, and transportation. Out of all of the Value Resort Hotels, my favorite is Disney’s Pop Century Resort since the rooms have recently been renovated, and it has access to Disney Skyliner Transportation, which is almost a ride on its own. 

    If you’re interested in a Moderate Resort Hotel, the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort are a great option in the Magic Kingdom Resort Area, which have access to Disney Bus Transportation to all four theme parks and Disney Water Transportation to Magic Kingdom Park. 

    My favorite Deluxe Resort Hotel is Disney’s Beach Club Resort. This Resort hotel is located in the EPCOT Resort Area and has access to Disney Bus Transportation to all four theme parks, Disney Water Transportation to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT, Disney Skyliner Transportation to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and is within walking distance to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In addition, the Resort has a 3-acre water wonderland with a shipwreck, pools, lagoons, and more at Stormalong Bay. This is an awesome immersive pool for those rest days in between theme parks. Finally, this Resort hotel is located near Disney’s BoardWalk, which features live entertainment, fun dining options, and games along the BoardWalk. 

    Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels can take advantage of 30-minute early entry into Walt Disney World theme parks every day. You can accomplish so many attractions within this 30-minute window and easily go back to your Resort hotel for an afternoon break by the pool using Disney Transportation. If you stay at Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels, you can enjoy extended evening hours, where select attractions, shops, and dining are open after regular park hours during select nights. Getting more time at the theme parks is one of my favorite perks of staying on property. 

    May the magic be with you!
