    I’ve seen some older answers saying you have to only be 18 to check into a Disney World Resort, is this still true?

    Hi there, Christopher, and welcome to planDisney! 

    The happiness I feel driving under the archway that welcomes me to The Most Magical Place on Earth as I am en route to my Disney Resorts Collection hotel is rivaled by few things in life, so I am happy to confirm that the magic of Disney Resort hotels is available to Mouseketeers ages 18 and up! With so many exclusive benefits available to Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels (early theme park entry, complimentary transportation, the option to add a dining plan, and beginning in 2025 access to a Walt Disney World Resort Water Park), the question is not if you want to stay in a Disney Resort hotel but rather which one to choose since there are options offered for seemingly every preference and price point. You could embrace a life of tropical luxury at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort or save your budget for shopping and dining by making yourself the star of the show at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort. In my opinion, Resort hotels on the Disney Skyliner are always an excellent option because they make visiting EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios a breeze at Deluxe, Moderate, and Value levels.

    I hope this was helpful, Christopher. If you need further assistance in choosing your magical home away from home, be sure to check out the planDisney Pocket Guides that highlight various Disney Resorts Collection hotels, or feel free to stop back by. I'm always happy to provide a bit of insight!
