Three Top Reasons to Stay On-Site at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel:
Disney’s Magical Express – When guests bound for Disney owned-and-operated hotels are traveling via commercial airline to Orlando International Airport (MCO), they can arrange for special luggage tags that allow them to check their bags at their hometown airport, bypass baggage claim at OIA and board state-of-the-art motor coaches for complimentary transportation to the Vacation Kingdom, where their bags “magically” appear in their guestroom. When it’s time to say good-bye, guests board motor coaches for complimentary transportation back to Orlando International Airport - (MCO). An extra convenience: Guests traveling on participating airlines can check their baggage for the return flight at their Disney resort, saving time and luggage-toting at the airport.
Walt Disney World Transportation System – A Walt Disney World resort ID is the ticket for buses, monorails and boat launches that combine to connect virtually all areas of the Vacation Kingdom. With the convenience of “door-to-door” service throughout the resort, many guests enjoy their Walt Disney World vacation without a car.
Extra Magic Hours at Walt Disney World Theme Parks – Each day, Disney hotel guests are offered exclusive time in a Walt Disney World theme park one hour prior to scheduled park opening or for up to three hours after park closing. The park varies from day to day. In addition, Disney water parks sometimes open one hour early for guests of Disney hotels. To take advantage of the additional time in the parks, guests must have their hotel ID plus a Magic Your Way ticket valid for the park(s) offering Extra Magic Hours. (NOTE: Extra Magic Hours of up to two hours after park close take effect in January-February 2014).Video of the Walt Disney World Grand Floridian Resort and SpaDisney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa Vacation Package (includes airfare, hotel, optional rental car and theme park and attraction tickets).
Other Notable Attributes, BENEFITS And PERKS Of Vacationing At A Walt Disney World Resort Hotel:
Location, location, location - With their on-property location convenient to the theme parks, the Disney hotels are a haven for guests who seek a midday swimming break - or a siesta. For some guests, the convenience is even more specific… ?
- Many families with young children select accommodations in one of the “monorail resorts” – Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Resort or Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Reason: location near Magic Kingdom and convenient monorail transportation between the resorts and Magic Kingdom or Epcot. ?
- Many adult couples visiting without children enjoy the proximity to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk – as well as the nightlife of Disney’s BoardWalk. Walkways and water taxis connect the three resorts with the theme parks.
Theming - It’s not just a room. In the same way that Disney’s theme parks offer an escape to a timeless land of enchantment, a walk down small-town Main Street or a peek at the future, Disney hotels offer a mix of adventures. Disney Imagineers have created detailed, themed environments that include the romance and beauty of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge to Victorian opulence at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Youth policy – Guests 17 and under stay at no additional charge in parents’ rooms (up to the designated capacity of the room) at Disney resort hotels.
Youth services and facilities – All Disney resort hotels offer in-room child care for ages 6 months to 12 years in partnership with independent childcare provider Kid’s Nite Out; all Disney hotels feature kiddie pools (in addition to full-size pools), many have playgrounds and some have Child Activity Centers for ages 3 to 12.
Online check-in – Guests can take care of the paperwork that normally accompanies check-in … in the comfort of their home up to 10 days before their visit. Upon arrival at their hotel, guests then stop by a special desk, show ID, sign, pick up their room keys and information packet, and begin enjoying their vacation.
Lobby concierge - One call can do it all. Each Disney resort hotel offers a lobby concierge to arrange park tickets, dining reservations and tee times, and to provide helpful hints on setting up other activities.
Key to the World card – It’s a hotel room key and much more. Magic Your Way theme park tickets and Disney Dining Plan entitlements can be built into the card. For easy tracking and convenience, the card also can be used to charge meals, goods and services directly to the room, giving the guest a consolidated statement of vacation purchases.
Merchandise delivery – Purchases at select shops throughout Walt Disney World Resort can be delivered to the guest’s Disney hotel at no charge, allowing the guest to play without lugging packages around the parks.
Exemption from parking fees at the theme parks – By presenting a resort ID, guests enter parking lots for free no matter how many parks they visit during their stay.
“Bottomless” drinking mug - Quenching a vacation-long thirst is easy at Disney’s resorts. Guests can purchase a mug themed to their resort that will become a keepsake when the holiday ends. During their length of stay, they can continually refill the mug at designated locations at their resort.
Preferred tee times - Disney hotel guests get preferred tee times for Disney’s four championship golf courses – including two courses that are part of PGA TOUR tradition, having hosted professional events from the early 1970s to the present.
Transportation to “the tees” – Golfing guests at Disney owned-and-operated hotelshave complimentary door-to-door transportation between their resort and Walt Disney World golf facilities
Dining at the Walt Disney World Resort's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa:
When people around the world think of Orlando, they inevitably think of Disney, so it makes sense that Zagat has chosen Disney's finest dining as Orlando's restaurant icon. The oft-awarded Victoria and Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa was named by Zagat in a new list of 15 U.S. restaurants that "embody the essence of their city."
Zagat says when in Orlando - head to Disney for fine dining.
Here's what Zagat's summary of reader reviews says of Victoria & Albert's Restaurant at Dinsye's Grand Floridian Resort and SPa: "A 'once-in-a-lifetime experience,' this Grand Floridian 'celebration destination' earns 'superlatives all around,' from chef Scott Hunnel’s 'exquisite,' 'beautifully presented' New American prix fixes to 'impeccable' service in an 'über-romantic, high-end' setting where 'elegance rules' (jackets are required for men); the fare may be pricey, but for those 'trying to impress' they say there’s 'no finer place than Victoria and Albert's.'" It's yet another plaudit for the Disney restaurant, which earlier this year was named a James Beard award semifinalist for outstanding service, while Chef Hunnel was named a semifinalist for the Best Chef South category.
Victoria and Albert's Restaurant is a 13-year recipient of the AAA Five Diamond award, 22-year recipient of the Forbes Travel Guide four-star rating and has won numerous Foodie Awards over the years from the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
The Orlando Sentinel's "Food Critic" - Heather McPherson say's: "Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa's Victoria and Albert's Chef Hunnel is a creative genius, Victoria and Albert's is one of the great chef's table experiences in Central Florida, offering an impeccable service staff and an exemplary food and beverage pairing program, Victoria & Albert's is a crown jewel in the Orlando dining scene."
