I was just taking a quick sanity break here at work, and found myself looking through people’s photos of their Walt Disney World vacations. I suppose it’s a bit voyeuristic, but it reminds me of the amazing times my family has had at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s other resorts.
During my browsing just now I ran across the following photo. It’s perfectly representative of all the things my family and I miss because we stay at on property Disney Resort hotels. To be clear, I’m really not lamenting “missing” all of those kitschy souvenir shops. Much.
How about you? Do you stay “on property” at Walt Disney World or do you save money (and that’s certainly a reason many consider off property lodgings) and stay outside the parks? As long as we can afford it, we’ll stay at a Disney resort hotel. We’ve gotten spoiled.
I love how they pick you up at the airport on their Magical Express bus. You tag your bags before you leave home and they magically appear at your room. I used to travel almost every week in my old job, and usually rented a car. I don’t mind leaving the driving to someone else now.
If you have young kids and can swing it, you can’t beat staying at one of their resort lodgings on the monorail line. After a long day of fun at the park there is nothing like wheeling a sleeping child still in her stroller seat right into the monorail car without waking her.
I better get back to work. Just wanted to drop by and say “hi!” How is your year going so far? Ours has been super busy, but productive. Leave a comment with your suggestions and tips for Walt Disney World travel with kids. You’ll be helping others with your advice.
