    Hello, I am planning a trip for 4 people, we have "park hopper" passes and would like to stay in an on-campus resort with rooms next to each other. With whom would I speak to get this set up the most efficiently?

    Hi D,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am delighted to see you dropping by with a great question!

    My first suggestion would be to review the Disney Resorts Collection and decide which resort hotels might be great for your group. Check out the dining options and other resort amenities including transportation options. My family loves resort hotels with access to the resort monorail, so our favorite resorts include Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Contemporary Resort, and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Both Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Contemporary Resort also have walking paths to Magic Kingdom.

    You might also enjoy resort hotels with access to the Disney Skyliner. These include Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Riviera Resort, and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  Disney's Art of Animation and Pop Century Resorts are typically a little more budget-friendly and have cute rooms. Disney's Riviera Resort is gorgeous and has our favorite character meal at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera.

    Once you pick a resort hotel, you can book it online or contact a Cast Member by phone. Once you book that resort hotel, you need to link it (and the tickets if you have not already done so), in your My Disney Experience account. Once your resort hotel is linked, you can do Online Check-in and, in that process you can make room requests. We usually request a first-floor room. To request connecting rooms, I suggest you call and make that request with a Cast Member. Since connecting rooms are not guaranteed, I would suggest that you consider a 2 Bedroom Villa or Suite. We stayed at one at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and it was lovely!

    The good news is that all of the resort hotels will put you right in the middle of the magic. And looking at the time of year you arrive, you will be able to see the gorgeous decorations for the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. This is my family's favorite time of year to visit. Last tip - don't forget to check your dining reservation window and make advanced dining reservations on the day that your reservation window opens!

    Magic and memories,
