    We have the opportunity to stay for free at a resort in the middle of Disney (Bonnet Creek), but it is not considered Disney Property. Any tips for not staying on Disney Property? It seems like there are a lot more perks if you stay on WDW property.

    Hi Kelly!

    Free is fabulous!!  And, while you will miss out on some of the 'perks' of being 'on property'--you can't beat free, right?

    Bonnet Creek is right in the heart of Walt Disney World, so you won't be far from the magic, and it is a very nice resort.  Make sure you are familiar with the resort's complimentary transportation schedules to each park and where they drop off and pick up from the parks.  You won't be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours (EMH), so I would avoid the EMH park for the day and choose another park.  Once at the theme parks, you will be welcome to use Disney Transportation to get around property (park to park, or to Downtown Disney).

    I think you'll still have a fabulous time! 

    Have a magical vacation!
