    If I stay at a Disney Hotel - will that allow access to Disneyworld tickets?

    Hi Jeffrey,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with a question! 

    If you stay at one of the resort hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection, you could book a vacation package that includes theme park tickets. You could also purchase those theme park tickets separately no matter where you stay. As you make your decision about a resort hotel, consider what will work best for your vacationing needs. For us, the priority is having access to multiple forms of transportation. We love Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa because they both are within walking distance to Magic Kingdom. We also adore Disney's BoardWalk Villas because from there we can walk to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    We prioritize resort hotels that fit within our budget. When I took my daughters on a girls' trip, we stayed at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort because it fit our budget at the time. I also love Disney's Art of Animation and Pop Century Resort hotels because they fit our budget and have access to the Disney Skyliner. As you continue to plan, keep watching the resort hotel updates to keep track of resort hotels that are reopening. 

    Once you get that vacation package booked, make sure you create a My Disney Experience account. Then, link your vacation package confirmation to that account. After linking that vacation package, be sure to make Disney Park Pass system reservations for each day that you have valid theme park admission. 

    Jeffrey, I am so excited that you are planning! Prior to setting the dates of your trip, check the theme park availability calendar to make sure there are park pass reservations available. I just checked your anticipated arrival date and EPCOT is the only park with availability for Guests with Theme Park Tickets and Guests of Select Resort Hotels. If you do decide to go, I also highly recommend that you make advanced dining reservations. We are so excited to welcome you to a world of magic!

    Magic and memories,
