4. Non-Disney Resort hotels
The number of non-Disney Resort hotels is growing every year, and you can shop for the one which best suits your needs and budget. Most of these resorts have fantastic amenities, first-rate accommodations, and free transportation to Walt Disney World and other entertainment venues. At some of these beautiful resorts, the rooms are actually larger than those at some Walt Disney World Resort hotels.
Staying on property at a Disney Resort hotel is great, but also quite busy most of the time, day or night. With the Extra Magic Evening Hours, many guests do not return to their rooms until after midnight, and this can interrupt a quiet sleep. Also if your room is close to the swimming pool, the noise level late at night or early in the morning can be a bit irritating. If you have rented a house or condominium off property, you can gather your group and set the time for “lights out”!, or you can enjoy a late night or early morning swim, without the noise of landscaping maintenance or leaf blowing equipment early in the morning.
Every family has needs and wants that will determine what is best for them, staying on or off Disney World Resort property. The magic of a Disney vacation fills the air in the theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs, so no matter where you choose to stay, the “most magical place on earth” is just around the corner. There is no good, better, or best place to stay when you’re visiting Walt Disney World. It’s your home away from home while you’re there, so enjoy every minute of every day, no matter if you’re staying on or off Disney property.
