10. Stay at a Disney resort
Unless you live within driving distance to the parks, own a nearby timeshare, or are staying with friends or family, try to stay at a Disney resort. It might be a little bit more expensive than the hotels outside the parks, but the benefits Disney resort guests receive and the close proximity to the parks really make it worth it. You’ll be able to spend more time in the parks with Extra Magic Hours and take advantage of complimentary transportation during your stay.
