Benefits of Staying on-site at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel

As a Guest staying in a Disney Resort, you’re entitled to remarkable benefits like Extra Magic Hours, Disney’s Magical Express, Disney’s Complimentary Transportation, Disney Dining Plan – and more magic all around.

You’ll experience an array of onsite:

Complimentary Airport Transportation

With everything else you have on your mind when traveling with your family, the last thing you want to think about is getting your whole group from Orlando International Airport to your hotel! Let Disney whisk your family—as a complimentary service—to and from your Disney Resort hotel with Disney’s Magical Express® Transportation! It lets you focus on the kids and everyone’s excitement. And who wants to wait or worry about luggage after you check in at your home airport? You won’t have to think about your luggage— it will magically appear in your room after your arrival. Disney will take you and your luggage back to Orlando International Airport, too. It’s just part of all your special Disney Resort hotel Guest benefits!

Walt Disney World Resort Offer

Extended Theme Park Hours

Want to maximize your vacation fun with more time in one of the theme parks? As Disney Resort hotel Guests, it’s possible for you and your family to take advantage of extra time in a Disney Theme Park each day with the Extra Magic Hours Benefit! On select days, you and the kids can enter a Theme Park an hour early. On select evenings, you can enjoy a Park up to two hours after regular closing time. Either way, that’s when lines may be shorter, the weather can be more comfortable and you get to enjoy select attractions. And with the extra time, you can give the gang a midday break at your Disney Resort hotel. After some relaxation or a dip in the pool, you can head back to the same Theme Park all revved up and ready to enjoy more fun! (Valid Theme Park admission and Disney Resort ID required. Park Hopper® Option required to visit more than one Theme Park per day.)

Wouldn’t it be great if you had an easy way for your family to enjoy delightful meals and snacks at participating Disney restaurants—plus save up to 20% on dining? That’s why the Disney Dining Plan, part of the Disney Resort Hotel® Package Plus Dining, is so popular. Your family can choose one Quick-service meal, one Table-service meal and one snack per person, per night of your stay at over 100 selected Walt Disney World® restaurants, including imaginatively themed restaurants and Disney Character meals.
