    Is it possible now to visit a resort you’re not staying at without a restaurant reservation?

    Welcome to planDisney Elizabeth!

    When visiting Walt Disney World, there is so much to explore. There are theme parks, mini-golf, water parks, Disney Springs, and of course all the lovely resorts around property!

    You are welcome to visit the many Walt Disney World resort hotels. The easiest way to reach the different resorts is by using the complimentary Disney transportation which includes buses, monorails, boats, and the Disney Skyliner

    A few notes about resort hopping: Feel free to shop, dine, and explore resorts, however the pools are for guests of that hotel exclusively so no need to bring your swimsuit! Also, parking is limited so stick to the Disney transportation when zipping around. Parking at resort hotels is reserved for registered guests and those with dining reservations

    All of the resorts have something special to explore, but I really think Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a "must see" with its beautiful lobby and views of the savannah as you walk out the back doors of the main building. I am also partial to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort with its tropical vibe and views of the Magic Kingdom from the beach. There are just so many amazing options!

    Have fun resort hopping! You might just find a new favorite place to stay during your next Walt Disney World vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
