    My sons employer is paying all expenses for his families 1st trip to Disney this Christmas. They are booked at a Disney Resort and if we travel and join them but don’t stay at a Disney Resort, are we able to visit them at their resort?

    Hi Melissa! Welcome to planDisney! It's great to have you stop by!

    Wow! What an amazing gift that your son received from his employer. An expense-free visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is a dream come true! I jokingly ask for this any time somebody is inquiring about gift ideas. 

    I'm happy to hear that they will be staying at a Disney Resorts Hotel during their stay! There is nothing quite like being immersed in Disney magic from the moment you arrive. There are a host of perks and benefits to staying on-site, including having access to complimentary Disney transportation for the entirety of their stay.

    Since you plan to stay offsite when you meet them there, you can certainly visit them at their resort throughout their stay. When your son arrives, have him stop by the front desk to have you added as a day Guest. When you arrive at the resort to visit, simply let the Cast Member at the guard shack know of your plans. Your name should be listed in the system and you will be allowed access for the day. If you are driving a vehicle, you will be able to park it at no additional cost. Otherwise, you will be dropped off near the main lobby of the resort.

    Being that this is your son's first visit, I would pass along our information here at planDisney for any questions he may have during the planning process. It can be a bit overwhelming and we would be happy to help him navigate his stay.

    Melissa, have an amazing time during your visit! There is no place better to spend the holiday season and create magical memories with family than at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    See ya real soon!
