    I am planning a vacation to Disney World and was wondering if its worth it to go to one of the off WDW property hotels in Orlando and use their transportation or rent a car? Or is it better to just stick with the Disney World hotels?

    Hi Eileen!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!
    If the purpose of your visit to Orlando is to enjoy time at Walt Disney World, then there's really no better way to fully immerse yourself in the magical experience than staying at a resort on the Walt Disney World property.

    The magic and ease of transportation begins the moment you've arrived at Orlando International Airport with the Magical Express complimentary airport transportation and luggage service.

    Once you're checked in at your Disney Resort, you'll have ALL of Disney's wonderful transportation at your disposal. The fleet of buses, boats and monorails will whisk you from your resort to the parks, water parks and Downtown Disney. Transportation runs frequently and efficiently.

    Transportation aside, there are many other perks to staying on site. The Disney Dining Plan will save you 20% or more on your dining during your stay, and is only available to guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. Additional, Extra Magic Hours add some extra time to your days spent in the parks. You can also charge purchases in the parks back to your resort room account, and even have parcels sent to your resort for you, rather than carrying them around with you during the day.

    I can't imagine doing Disney any other way than immersing my family right into the magic!
    If you'd like some resort recommendations Eileen, feel free to write me back and I'd be thrilled to assist you further. Having stayed with my family at Value, Moderate, Deluxe and even Deluxe Villa accommodations, I have experienced every category and can assure you that no matter what your budget, you can have the vacation of your family's dreams! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time planning your trip to Walt Disney World!
