    Closest resort to magic kingdom

    Welcome to planDisney, Jo! 

    I'm thrilled you're planning on visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth and even more excited that you want to stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel! Walt Disney World Resort is massive, covering thousands of acres, so I completely understand your thoughts about staying close to Magic Kingdom Park! I think Magic Kingdom Park is the quintessential Disney fairytale experience, and I'm happy to tell you about the Resort hotels closest to it.

    Disney's Contemporary Resort: This Disney Resort hotel is the closest to Magic Kingdom Park, a short walk away! It also boasts delicious dining options! Guests can enjoy watching the Disney Monorail enter through its famous A-frame main tower, a feature my Mouseketeers are still crazy about!  

    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa: This Victorian-style Resort hotel lives up to its name with a stunning lobby and fanciful theming while remaining family-friendly. The Resort hotel offers Disney Monorail Transportation and Watercraft Transportation to Magic Kingdom Park. 

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort: You're sure to be transported to the lush tropical oasis with a gorgeous sandy beach area in front of Seven Seas Lagoon. This Resort is a quick Disney Monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom Park. 

    Disney's Wilderness Lodge: Inspired by turn-of-the-century National Park lodges, this Resort hotel celebrates American craftsmanship and honors the beauty of the untamed wilderness. It offers Disney Watercraft Transportation to Magic Kingdom Park. Disney Water Transportation to Magic Kingdom Park is also provided for Guests staying at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort!

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside: This Resort hotel has gorgeous grounds with beautiful pathways and gardens. It offers Disney Bus Service to Magic Kingdom Park, about a 15-minute drive. 

    There's nothing quite as magical as staying at a Disney Resort hotel. With benefits such as Early Theme Park Entry and being immersed in the storytelling, it's hard to say goodbye when the vacation comes to an end!

    We can't wait to welcome you to the magic, Jo!
