    Can you use the pools (and other common areas) of the other hotels besides the one you are staying at? Can you eat at the restaurants at other hotels?

    Hi Hillary!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The hotels at Walt Disney World Resort have fantastic restaurants, shopping and recreational activities for Guests to enjoy. In fact, one of my favorite things to do during my vacation is to enjoy the beautiful theming and atmosphere of each the Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Unfortunately, Walt Disney World Resort hotel pools can only be used by Guests staying at that hotel. However, the restaurants and shops at each of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels can be used by any Guest, even those not staying in that hotel. In fact, some of my favorite restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort are located in hotels. For example, I think the perfect way to start a Magic Kingdom day is with breakfast at Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort or at 'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. Then after your meal, you are a quick monorail or boat ride away from Magic Kingdom!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
