    If we are staying at a resort, can a friend that lives locally still come visit us at the resort for a few hours?

    Hello Marilyn!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney to ask us a great question! I have to tell you that I love having a guest visit me at my Walt Disney World Resort during my vacation. I enjoy showing them around my Walt Disney World Resort because there are so many unique features and amenities at each Resort, and even the room is a tour in itself. On my last Walt Disney World vacation, two different Florida friends visited me at Disney's Pop Century Resort on two separate days. I had the opportunity to show them around Disney's Pop Century Resort.

    Yes, you can have a day guest visit you at your Walt Disney World Resort. Your day guest will need to stop at security (typically a small building at the resort entrance with gates that lift and give access to the Resort). Your guest will have to give the Cast Member at security their photo ID, such as a driver's license and your name. Also, if they have your Walt Disney World Resort room number, it can help speed up the process of looking up and verifying that you are a Guest staying at that particular Resort, according to my experience. The parking should be at no charge for your day guest once they have been approved to enter the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I hope that you and your guest have a blast exploring your Walt Disney World Resort on your next Walt Disney World vacation!
