Should I stay on Disney Property? Or is close good enough?

The hotel rooms inside Disney World make up 50% of the all hotel rooms in Orlando – that’s a lot of rooms! Every kind of property you can imagine from the economy All Star Hotels to the more expensive and deluxe Grand Floridian can be found on Disney property.

There are some definite advantages for guests staying on the Disney property, including:

  • All onsite hotels and resorts are required to provide free shuttle service to the Disney theme parks every 30 minutes.
  • Onsite hotels are inspected every 30 days to ensure that they adhere to the high quality standards visitors expect from the Disney Company.

Our suggestion if want to stay at a hotel on Disney property is to look at the non-Disney owned hotels which are located near the Downtown Disney World area. These properties give you all the perks of staying at a Disney owned hotel but a fraction of the cost. Each of the followinglodging choices offers significant value, as their nightly rates are comparable to those of the All Star Resort properties.
