Lodging may be the most complicated decision for a Disney Vacation. Disney operates 28 resorts on Walt Disney property and there are hundreds of off-site resorts and hotels. We have a group rate at two Marriott hotels and discounted group rates at six Disney resorts.
Hotel rooms with the discounts are limited. Book early for the best price and the most options. Payment is made directly to Disney.
Disney offers a wide range hotels. They categorize their holes from value to deluxe. Price, room size, and resort amenities increase as you go from value to deluxe. All hotels have bus transportation to the parks. Most deluxe hotels have multiple forms of transportation to the parks including walking, monorail, or boat. Some moderate hotels have boat transportation. All Disney resorts share benefits of staying on-site.

On-Site vs. Off-Site Benefits
Picking between on-site and off-site is a personal decision. Disney lures guest with on-site only benefits. Some people want to stay in the “Disney bubble.” The Marriott hotels are as convenient as some of the Disney hotels. The Marriott rooms are equivalent to a Disney deluxe at a value price.
