    We will be going to Walt Disney World Orlando in a couple of weeks. We are not staying on property, but would like to be able to tour some of the resorts for the future. Are we able to do that? Thank you.

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, Erin!

    You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney.  If you're looking to add a little extra magic to your Walt Disney World vacations, there's no better way to do it than by staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel.  From luxury deluxe villas to cozy campgrounds, the African Savannah to an Atlantic BoardWalk, and even blasting off to a faraway galaxy, there's a Disney Resort for just about any adventure your mind can dream up.  How cool that you're planning to spend some time exploring a few Resorts during your upcoming visit –– I think you're going to love what's in store for you!

    You're welcome to visit and enjoy any of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels at your leisure –– however, you won't be able to park at the hotel or have a rideshare service drop you off unless you're a Guest or have a confirmed dining reservation at one of the hotel's restaurants.  In addition to parking access, making an advance dining reservation is also a great way to get a feel for the Resort's vibe, so I definitely recommend it if there's a spot you're really interested in seeing.  Without a dining reservation, the easiest way to get to each Resort is by using the Walt Disney World transportation system.  You can jump on the monorail to see many of the Resorts in the Magic Kingdom Resort Area.  By exiting through the EPCOT International Gateway entrance or the main gate of Disney's Hollywood Studios, you can take Disney Skyliner or walk to hotels in the EPCOT Resort Area.  And you also have the option to take any available Resort bus from a Walt Disney World theme park or Disney Springs to the other Resorts, as well.

    If you're interested in touring a room, your best bet is to schedule a time to preview a Disney Vacation Club Villa.  While these rooms offer more amenities than a traditional hotel room, they're a great way to get a feel for all the possibilities that come with a Disney Resort stay.  You can schedule a preview of one of these rooms before you arrive by calling (800) 500-3990 or you can stop by any Disney Vacation Club desk during your visit to see which rooms are available to view.  I know that Disney Vacation Club is currently offering Guests a chance to see the brand-new Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, which open later this year.  The pictures of these new rooms are stunning –– I definitely recommend taking a peek if you get the chance!

    Thanks for visiting planDisney, Erin.  If you think of more planning questions, please feel free to stop by again –– we're always here to help!

    See Ya Real Soon,
