    Disney spring resort benefits

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, ADIS!

    If you're thinking about a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort and are interested in staying in the Disney Springs area, there are seven hotel options that comprise the Walt Disney World Official Hotels: Disney Springs Area with tons of great benefits.

    First, a stay at one of these hotels in 2020 will provide you and your traveling party with access to Extra Magic Hours which is a great way to get the most out of your time in the parks! Be sure to check which parks offer Extra Magic Hours during your vacation. Some are before park opening and some are after park closing.

    Another amazing perk is having the ability to book your 3 complimentary Fastpass+ selections 60-days before you arrive. This is one of my favorite benefits. My family and I always take advantage of booking our Fastpass+ selections in advance. If you are unfamiliar, Fastpass+ allows you quick access to a number of attractions, shows or Character Greetings, in all four parks. Make sure you have created an account in My Disney Experience to begin. 

    Third, the Walt Disney World Official Hotels: Disney Springs Area all provide complimentary shuttle transportation to and from the parks. If you're like me, when on vacation, I love not worrying about parking or finding my car at the end of a long day in the parks! 

    Is someone in your party interested in shopping? If so, great news! In-park purchases can be sent back to your hotel for no extra cost. Some limitations may apply depending upon your check-out date. To take advantage of this, simply ask the Cast Member checking you out about sending your purchase to your hotel. 

    As you can see, there are tons of great benefits if you're interested in staying in one of the participating hotels in the Disney Springs area . Each hotel also offers its own benefits like on-site dining, pools and more. I would recommend browsing through the options that look most appealing to you to find out more. 

    Finally, since you'll likely be staying close to the Disney Springs, have you thought about dining? I would recommend taking advantage of your location and dining at Disney Springs! Disney Springs is home to over 60 restaurants, bars, and other spots to grab a bite, including my favorite, Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar.

    I hope whichever hotel you choose, your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is unforgettable.
    Thanks for stopping by!
