Determining Where To Stay

It can take much work to narrow down what Walt Disney World Resort you should stay at for your vacation. There are some top questions that you should ask yourself when it comes to your Disney Resort choice.

Start by making sure you have a budget. Getting wrapped up in Disney Resorts can be easy, so make sure you know your budget and stick to it. Next, think about what amenities are important to you.

Do you need a table-service location, or is a food court just fine for food? Do your kids need a slide at the pool, or do you have little ones that will want a splash area to play in? Think through what is a priority and use that to narrow down where you want to stay.

Finally, think about where you want to be. If you spend most of your time at Magic Kingdom, you should consider a Resort in that area. For those that will hit all four Parks equally, it might be less critical when it comes to the location of the Resort.

Thinking through these critical areas can help determine which Walt Disney World Resort will be the best for your trip. Once you know which Walt Disney World Resort you want to stay at during your trip, think about taking advantage of this new summertime offer. This can be a great way to save money on your Walt Disney World vacation while staying at one of the fantastic Disney Resorts.
