    1st timers, what benifits or bonus do you get for staying in the resorts? Do we get better deals getting a package?

    Hello Nora! Thanks for bringing such a great question to planDisney! Your question is the reason we enjoy helping Guests!

    To me, the first benefit of staying at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection is that you are staying in the heart of the magic! When my kids were younger and we visited, I remember telling them at bedtime that their favorite characters were also getting ready for bed over in the castle! They loved thinking that they were sleeping just a few minutes away from Mickey, Donald, and Goofy! The theming of the hotels in the Disney Resorts collection also reminds you that you truly are staying at the Most Magical Place on Earth! Also, by staying in the Disney Resorts Collection, Guests can also see characters at their hotel! We just saw Goofy and Pluto in our resort lobby during our most recent visit! That was a great surprise to all of us!

    Guests of the Disney Resorts Collection will also enjoy being in proximity to the Disney Parks, Disney Springs, and Blizzard Beach Water Park! And, even better, complimentary Disney Transportation will take you from your resort hotel to any of those locations! No need to rent a car or pay for a ride service! Just hop aboard a bus, the Monorail, the Disney Skyliner, or a boat at your resort and you’ll get to your destination!

    And, beginning in October, Guests of the Disney Resorts Collection will be admitted a ½-hour early into all of the Disney Parks! Additionally, Guests of Disney Deluxe Resort accommodations will also be permitted to remain at the Disney Parks for additional time after official park closing!

    Nora, I hope this information is helpful as you decide where to stay for your vacation! Come back to planDisney for any additional assistance! We’re happy to help!
