    Is a hotel with the monorail worth the extra cost?

    Hi Jen,

    With 25 different Resort hotels to choose from, you're definitely sure to find a magical one that perfectly meets your needs and your budget. As for which one is best for you, only you can ultimately decide that, but I'm happy to share some of the reasons that I love staying directly on the monorail loop.

    The first and most obvious benefit has to be convenience. You can walk out of your room in the morning and be at Magic Kingdom Park within just a few short minutes. Talk about magical! Heading back to your Resort hotel for a rest or swim in the afternoon is also easy. Another great benefit, though, is location. There's something really special about walking around your Resort hotel and seeing Cinderella Castle across the lake. Watching the Happily Ever After fireworks or enjoying the Electrical Water Pageant from your Resort hotel at the end of an incredible day is definitely an amazing perk! Of course every Disney Resort hotel has wonderful benefits, but I do have to say that the Deluxe Resorts along the monorail loop are rather amazing. They each have their own unique feel, but are all gorgeous and offer a truly immersive, luxurious experience.

    If you're planning to spend a lot of time at Magic Kingdom Park, a stay at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Contemporary Resort, or Disney's Polynesian Village Resort simply can't be beat, and if they fit in your budget, I think you'll absolutely love them!

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jen, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
