    1. Does booking through a WDW good neighbour hotel come with early park entry/other perks? I am looking at the Rosen Inn, as well as Fairfield Inn. 2. Do shuttles from these hotels drop off at the park entrances? 3. Do shuttles run during evening events?

    Hey Howdy Hey Brianna and welcome to planDisney!

    October is such a great month to consider a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. The weather is cooler, fall decor is all around the parks and Mickey's Not-So-Scarry Halloween Party is rockin' in Magic Kingdom. I am excited to hear you are planning a trip later this year during this festive time. Thank you for stopping by with your question on specifics with our Good Neighbor friends. Let's see if I can help you out with a few answers. 

    When it comes to booking a vacation to Disney World, the Good Neighbor Hotels are a great option. One important thing to note, is they are close to Walt Disney World property but not all have the same perks to the parks. If you are looking to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry, Disney does try to keep this list as up-to-date as they can but things do change. If you have specific questions if a hotel you are looking into has this or other perks, reaching out directly to them is the best way to get the most updated list of perks to the parks. This list might also help narrow your hotel options to those with these perks. 

    As for transportation, most of these hotels do offer shuttles to and from the parks. The shuttles may not drop off right at the park entrance, but the walk to the entrance won't be too bad. Typically, these shuttles will drop off at the Transportation and Ticket Center in Magic Kingdom which is a short monorail ride from there to the front of the park. It is also a great way to get super excited for your Magical day in the parks with a ride on the Walt Disney World Monorail

    Not all hotels are the same so the shuttle service might vary from hotel to hotel. Considering these are not operated by Disney, I would recommend reaching out to them directly to find out the frequency of shuttles to and from as well as operating hours. They may vary depending on the day and experiences available onsite. 

    I am sorry I cannot be more specific with details. These Good Neighbor hotels are close to Disney property but operated independently and all have varying perks and access. I hope you can find the specifics you are looking for and continue your path to booking your next trip. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
