    My family are excited to visit DW in March. We'd like to visit Disney Springs + resort hop (monorail/boat) on our 1st day as we arrive early AM (we stay at ASM). Can I get suggestions to help plan the day including what to do, when/where to go? Thx!

    Hi, Winnie!

    With 20+ Disney resort hotels on property, you can certainly spend a lot of time exploring resorts. This can be a lot of fun, and a great way to see where you may want to stay on your next Disney adventure. It would be quite a feat to visit all of them, so I will focus on the Magic Kingdom resorts.

    After arriving at Disney's All Star Resort, drop off any bags you have and take the bus to Disney Springs. Enjoy a fun morning of shopping. You can have lunch at one of the amazing restaurants here. After a few hours of fun, hop on bus to Disney's Contemporary Resort. Check out the resort and the beautiful views of Bay Lake out the back. Then, hop on the Resort Monorail inside the Contemporary to the Polynesian. Explore this tropical paradise and even relax a bit outside Capt. Cooks with a snack or beverage. You can then take the walkway to the Grand Floridian, one of my favorite walking paths on property. It is a wonderful stroll along the Seven Seas Lagoon. You will pass the Grand Floridian DVC, the Wedding Chapel, then you will reach the glorious Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Shop, enjoy the lobby, and admire the lovely landscape of this property. From this location, you can take the monorail back to the Magic Kingdom or take a boat from the launch, whichever you prefer. Once back at the Magic Kingdom, you can take a bus back to your home resort.

    I hope this plan works for you. There are endless options, but this allows you to see several resorts and travel by bus, boat, monorail, and even a bit of walking. Have fun!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
