With special benefits and legendary service, Disney Resort* hotels complete a Disney vacation experience. Guests will experience an array of special Disney touches that lets them enjoy the following
First Access to FastPass+ and Disney Dining Reservations
Resort guests get to book 60 days in advance of check-in for their length of stay, whereas non-resort guests must book 30 days in advance for each day of their theme park visit. This means the resort guests get first dibs on the most popular rides and attractions in the parks.
Resort guests get free MagicBands, which can be customized (up to five days before your check-in). If you customize your bands at least 10 days before your visit, they will be shipped to your home (U.S. residents only). For the customization, you get to pick the color of the band and can add a name or nickname to the inside of the band for easy identification
Resort Room charging Privileges
Disney offers room charging privileges for guests of its resorts. To make it even easier, the same MagicBand that gets you into the parks is what you use when you want to charge items back to your room.
Resort Package Delivery
For resort guests, Disney has an option to have purchases delivered back to your resort gift shop where you can retrieve them the following day.
When staying at a Disney Resort hotel, it's only a short trip back to the room to enjoy the pool or rest before returning to the Theme Parks to enjoy more magic.
Complimentary Airport Service
Guests can skip baggage claim with Disney's Magical Express®, a convenient motorcoach service between Orlando International Airport and their Disney Resort hotel.
Complimentary Resort Transportation and Standard Parking
Motorcoaches, ferryboats, the world-famous monorail and complimentary standard parking at all Walt Disney World® Theme Parks make getting around both easy and convenient.
Extended Theme Park Hours
Guests can take advantage of more time in one of the Parks before they open or after they close with Extra Magic Hours, and enjoy select attractions beyond the usual operating hours. (Valid Theme Park admission and Resort ID required.)
Disney Dining Plans
Disney dining plans are options available exclusively to Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels with Magic Your Way Packages. With over 200 Walt Disney World restaurant locations, dining plans offer a convenient and often affordable way to enjoy snacks and a variety of dining experiences.
Resort Hotel Entertainment
Themed pools, water slides, outdoor Disney movie screenings and Character Dining experiences are just a few of the fun activities that may be available when staying at select Disney Resort hotels.
