There are benefits and disadvantages to staying on property at a Disney World Resort hotel, and the same goes for staying off-site! So, to help decide whether it’s worth it to stay on property, we asked our readers for their input!

For others, the main factor was convenience. One reader shared that they choose these hotels for “the Skyliner and early park hours.” Another agreed and shared that “anything that allows you to walk/boat/skyline/monorail to a park more than makes up for any extra cost.”

We also had some readers disagree, mainly citing the lack of perks as the issue. One reader said, “Prices have gone up and perks have been eliminated.” A lot of comments agreed with this sentiment.

One reader said, “Not anymore. No magical express, only luxury resorts get magic hours, and bus schedules are reduced so you need to Uber to the parks.”
