Why you should stay on Disney Property

Benefits of Staying on Disney Property

"Convince me the extra money is worth it", is a phrase I hear quite often. For some people staying on property is never a question, for others you have to convince them it's worth it. I have found staying on property is definitely a plus, the treatment you receive makes you feel like a VIP. You don't have to stay in the most expensive resort to recieve all the perks, they are available to you when you choose to stay in any of the Disney owned resorts. There are many perks for Walt Disney Resort guests and if you choose to stay off property, you are not entitled to these perks. There are numerous benefits, but I classify these as my top four:
1.  Walt Disney World Transportation System--Buses, monorails, and boat launches are combined to connect all areas of WDW. With the convenience of door-to-door service throughout the resort many guests enjoy their WDW vacation without a car.

2.  Extra Magic Hours--Guests staying at a Disney Resort are given each day an extra hour prior to opening or up to 3 hours after park closing. To take advantage of this offer guests must have their resort ID plus a valid admission ticket for the parks offering EM hours.

3. Disney Dining Plan--Guests who combine their room accomodations and attraction tickets into a Magic Your Way Package are eligible to add dining for the convenience of a more-inclusive vacation package.

4.  Disney's Magical Express--- If you are traveling via airline to Orlando Airport (MCO), you will receive luggage tags that allow you to check your bags at your hometown airport, bypass baggage claim at MCO and board a state-of-the-art motor coach for complimentary transportation to your Disney Resort, where your bags will magically appear in your room. When it's time to leave you will board the motor coach for complimentary transportation back to MCO. An extra convenience: If you are traveling on participating airlines, you can check your baggage for the return flight at the Disney Resort , saving time and carrying luggage around at the airport.

Central Billing, Child-Care Services, Exemption from parking fees at the WDW Theme Parks, Guaranteed Themepark Entry, Guest Services, Online Check-In, Preferred Tee Times, are several other benefits Disney has to offer if staying on Disney property.

  1. It took a long time for me to convince my husband to try staying onsite. As they say, though, "once bitten..."
    Port Orleans Riverside is our resort of choice. Last year, in an effort to save a bit of money, I even offered to book us at a value resort, and he wouldn't hear of it! This from a man who once pitched a fit when I upgraded us from our usual Days Inn to a Quality Suites!
