    Hi there, Frank!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort has its perks! Here's a few that our family takes advantage of when we stay at one of our favorite Walt Disney World resorts.

    1. Disney's Magical Express-You're Disney vacation begins and ends with this complimentary ride to and from Orlando's International Airport with drop off and pick at your resort. No need to worry about your luggage. Just attach the yellow tags to your baggage and your luggage will be delivered to your Walt Disney World resort room while enjoying time in the theme parks or Disney Springs. 

    *Tip: If you drive, parking at your resort and theme parks is free!

    2. Extra Magic Hours-Either in the morning or at night, resort guests have an exclusive advantage of enjoying the parks before guests who are staying off property.

    3. Various Modes of Complimentary Transportation-Boat, bus, or Monorail, there are several options to get you to and from the theme parks, Disney Springs, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Parks. Transportation typically begins about an hour before the parks open and an hour after the parks close.

    4. Beautifully Themed Resorts-Only Disney can do resort living for any budget! From fun and vibrant landscape and rooms at Disney's All Star-Movies Resort to classic grandeur at Disney's Grand Floridian! Your family will enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells that each resort offers! 

    These are only a few reasons why we stay on property! I hope this helps you make a decision. If you have more questions, please visit with us again!
