    Staying at a Disney hotel includes access to the parks?

    Hi Jorge!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question.

    I'm so happy to see you're planning a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth - Walt Disney World Resort. Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is the best way to immerse yourself completely in the magic of Disney while on your vacation! Disney Resorts Collection hotels give Guests the attention to detail, excellent service, and amazing storytelling that are found in all four amazing theme parks. With themed rooms, fantastic dining options, fun pools, and more, Walt Disney World Resort has a wide selection of accommodations to choose from to fit your family's needs and budget.

    I'm not quite sure if you're asking about entry into the parks, or transportation to the parks, so I'll cover both!

    At this time, Guests will need to have a valid Theme Park Ticket and a Disney Park Pass reservation for a specific park on a specific date to enter that theme park. I always recommend checking the Theme Park Availability Calendar before making a ticket purchase to make sure the park you want to visit is available on the day you'd like to go! 

    As far as transportation, Disney Resort Hotels are all located close to the theme parks, water parks, and the Disney Springs area. Complimentary bus, boat, and monorail services are available to transport Guests to destinations within Walt Disney World Resort. Guests staying at select Disney Resort Hotels (Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and Disney's Riviera Resort) are on the Disney Skyliner route and can travel through the air on colorful gondolas to reach Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot easily from their location. Some Disney Resort hotels have walking paths to nearby theme parks! Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa each have a path to Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Boardwalk Resort, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, and Disney's Beach Club Resort (also the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels) are all within walking distance to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot. No matter where you choose to stay, there is transportation provided to get where you need to go within Walt Disney World Resort, and easy access to all four theme parks.

    I hope this helps answer your question! Please come back and visit us here at planDisney if you have more questions as you prepare for your trip!
