6 Magical Reasons to Stay On-Site at Walt Disney World Resort

"Are you wanting to be immersed in the magic morning, noon and night? There truly is no better way to do just that than to stay at The Most Magical Place on Earth." - Walt Disney World Resort. 

With a whole new world at your window, you can step out into savannas straight out of The Lion King at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, or even re-live classic films like Finding Nemo or Cars in the storybook rooms of Disney's Art of Animation. With each Disney hotel offering a distinct theme, you will be sure to find something that will put a smile on everyone's face! 

As well as waking up in the middle of the magic, you will also have the added benefit of some fantastic resort guest perks. Below are just 6 reasons people are choosing to stay at a Disney Resort for their next Florida holiday... 

1. The Little Things for the Little Ones


The little details matter, especially when you’re travelling with little ones. You could decide to stay in a deluxe hotel or a lovely home-from-home Villa but only on-site could their Disney dreams come true at night. Such as sleeping in storybook rooms where they can re-live their favourite movies, before waking up to breakfast with beloved Disney characters. 

And while there are pristine pools off-site, they can’t bring a child’s imagination to a shipwrecked tropical island, with sand between their toes and rafts around them. That would be Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. Where you’re only a walk away from the Epcot theme park. Letting you say yes to “just one more” go on the ride since you’re within minutes of your accommodation. Some resorts – such as Disney’s Grand Floridian - are close enough to even take the kids back for a quick power nap between rides at the Magic Kingdom.

Other often-overlooked benefits for young families include the availability of family rooms of five - instead of the standard four from hotels. And when buying big toys, you can even get them delivered to your resort, free of charge on request, when staying on-site.

2. Early Theme Park Access


On-site guests can enjoy 30 minutes early entry to any theme park, every day.

With Early Theme Park Access you will be able to save up to 2 hours of queueing time over the course of your day and with every park open early for resort, crowds will be evenly spread. 

Other than staying on-site, you simply need to have bought your park ticket and make your reservation via Disney Park Pass system to enjoy this special benefit.

3. MagicBands & MagicMobile Service


Enjoy more magic, with less stress. By staying on-site, you will be offered MagicBands at exclusive discount prices - up to 6 days before arrival. They can be personalised to your favourite Disney theme, character or even your name. Alternatively, you can download the NEW MagicMobile app for FREE; a no-contact pass which will provide you with all of the same great amenities and convenience - allowing you to:

  • Unlock your Disney Resort room
  • Enter theme parks and water parks (with valid admission)
  • Charge food and merchandise purchases
  • Connect Disney PhotoPass images to your Disney account

4. Get Around with Ease


There are also many free transport networks between on-site resorts and theme parks. Such as monorails from Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Polynesian Village to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Or even ferry-boats from resorts such as Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resorts to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

Whichever Walt Disney World Resort you wish to choose, you can rest assured they are all connected by a bus network. 

5. Never Miss a Moment of Magic


One of the most important reasons to stay on-site is a value you can’t exactly measure. Many guests simply say you have to experience staying on-site to know how immersive Disney resorts are. Where fireworks dance at your window from Magic Kingdom’s Happily Ever After.  Where you can step outside into a lakeside oasis from the desert of the Old West at Coronado Springs or even watch your favourite Disney Movies under the Stars in the fresh evening air at a range of fantastic resorts.

Beyond the amenities, the experience stays with you with every person you meet. From the bus driver to the bellhop, they are all trained to bring you unrivalled customer service. Placing you right at the heart of your fairy tale trip. 

6. And don't forget... Disney's 50th Anniversary Package!
