    I'm a Florida resident is it better to go through the website or to call Disney for Resort stays

    Hi Krystal and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Florida Residents can always enjoy great deals no matter which season they choose to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    As a Florida resident myself, I always sign into my Disney account when looking for a Disney hotel online. That way all the deals for residents are showcased and I get a good idea of the rates for all the hotels.

    You can always customize your Disney hotel search to select the category of the hotels you’d like to visit. Whether it’s deluxe, moderate or value, go to the “filter by” bar and click on the “Resort Category” drop down to make those elections. Most of the time you can find all the answers you need on the site. 

    Whenever I have a question about a particular Disney hotel, I have called to speak to a Cast Member. You can reach the resort reservations line at (407) 939- 5277. I always enjoy the Disney Theme park music playing when I’m placed on a brief hold. It makes me that much more excited to be planning my vacation!

    Krystal, as you’re looking at those Disney Resort hotel offers, remember that you can make dining reservations 180 days before your scheduled visit. 

    I hope this information is helpful! Helping you plan your magical visit is our favorite thing to do! Come back to see us if you have any other questions, we’re happy to help with some ideas for your upcoming trip!
