    We're going to Disney World with family, but we're not all staying together at the same resort. If we went back to our resort to swim in the pool, could we bring our extended family to join us (even though they aren't staying at our resort)?

    Hi Casey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to see that you are visiting Walt Disney World at the same time as your extended family. I would love to bring my whole family to share a Walt Disney World vacation with me! All Guests are welcome to visit other Resort hotels, but at this time Guests are only permitted to use a Resort hotel pool if you have a Resort reservation there. However, you absolutely can bring your family to your Resort hotel to relax and enjoy a different location, if you wish. I thoroughly enjoy 'resort hopping' as there is always so much to explore, with each Resort hotel being so unique. Take a stroll around the gardens and enjoy a drink in the sunshine or make a dining reservation there so your whole party can share a meal together. If you choose to use the complimentary Resort Transportation, some Resort hotels in the Magic Kingdom Resort area are linked by the monorail or a short boat ride, whereas the Disney buses will take you to any Resort hotel from all the Walt Disney World theme parks. For a more time-saving option, you might like to consider using the Minnie Van Service to travel between your different hotels. These are driven by Cast Members and can accommodate up to six Guests. You can make your booking using the Lyft app, which will also show you the cost of this service. Alternatively, you could stop by the front desk of your hotel, and ask them to hail you a taxi cab. Please allow some extra time for this, as there may not be a taxi readily waiting at the resort.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
