The Most Important Things to Consider When Booking Your Walt Disney World Resort

Helping you plan your Disney World vacation is what we do. There’s so much to account for, like park tickets, dining reservations, making sure you’ve got the autograph books packed.

One of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make, though, is what’s the right Disney World Resort for your group?

This can be intimidating at first, so we’re going to lay out two of the most important things to remember when making this decision — and they go hand in hand.

Location, Location, Location

Where a Disney World resort is located can have a big impact on your plans, so you may want to pick a resort that best fits with your priorities. Do you know someone in your group really loves animals? You might want to check out Animal Kingdom Lodge. Got a lot of small children with you? Finding a resort in the Magic Kingdom area may be what you need.

It’s also important to note what kind of transportation options are available at each resort. There’s a lot of ways to get around Disney World, such as bus, boat, and the Skyliner, but you won’t have access to every single option from the resort you choose simply because of its location. Speaking of transportation…

…Getting Around

Finding your way around Disney World might be just as important as picking the resort for you. We’ve already mentioned how different resorts will have access to different methods of transportation, like Wilderness Lodge having both a boat dock and a bus station while Caribbean Beach gets access to the bus system and the Skyliner.

You will also want to be aware of how long it takes to get to your destination using the different methods of transportation, especially right now while Disney World is taking steps to limit capacity. Your group may get their own Skyliner gondola, but it may take a few rotations of buses or boats for you to get to the parks. Make sure you set enough time aside for travel. To that point, you may want to select a resort that allows you for the most efficient travel based on what you plan to do on your vacation.

For example, the EPCOT Resort Area has Friendship Boat service to two parks, access to Skyliner at International Gateway, bus service to parks, and walking paths to both Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.
