Everyone knows there is nothing more magical than staying inside the magic bubble of Walt Disney World. Most guests can’t resist being surrounded by 24/7 exceptional cast member service when choosing their Orlando accommodations. Therefore, on-site WDW hotels are very popular. In addition to the immaculate theming and overall quality, there are many other reasons why you should consider staying on property. Let us list the added benefits of the Disney “bubble”!
10. Complimentary MagicBands
In case you don’t know what a MagicBand is, this was a game changer for the overall guest experience. This is a wristband that digitally contains your room key, park tickets, PhotoPass packages, Disney Dining Plan, and it can even be used to charge items to your room. By just scanning this band you can literally play, eat, and shop at your leisure without ever reaching into your wallet. Any Disney guest can purchase a MagicBand, but those who stay on-property receive them forfree. How is that for great service?
9. Airport Transportation
For those traveling by plane, you’ll never have to rent a car. The Orlando airport is roughly an hour away from WDW, but you can book a ride on the Magical Express. This is a free bus service that will shuttle you from the airport to your Disney resort of choice. This service also includes having your luggage delivered directly to your room, so you can head right to the parks! And best (or worst) of all, this service is available for the return home too.
8. On-Site Transportation
The Transportation benefits don’t just stop there! For your entire visit, you will have access to Disney busses, boats, and monorails that will take you to every park, hotel, and recreational area on Disney property! It can take some planning to figure out which mode of transportation you’ll need, but there are plenty of friendly cast members to guide you. Also, each bus stop has recently installed boards that list the wait times for each bus and its corresponding destination. Not too shabby!
