    I'm planning on staying at a Disney Value Resort in September 2012. I've been to the parks many times, but this will be the first time staying on property. What should I know to make my first stay at a Disney Resort the best it can be?

    Hi Kelly!

    The main advantages of staying in a Disney Resort include:
    • Access to Extra Magic Hours
    • Use of Disney's Magical Express for transportation to and from Orlando International Airport
    • Use of Disney Transportation to get around Walt Disney World
    • Package delivery back to your resort of things purchased in Walt Disney World
    Extra Magic Hours is a huge perk so make sure you know which parks are offering Extra Magic Hours on which days and plan accordingly. 

    Besides that, just enjoy the Disney service and being in the "Disney bubble" instead of leaving Walt Disney World each night!

    Have a magical vacation!
