Chances are you’ve heard plenty of hotel tips, but we’re sharing 5 Disney World hotel tips you HAVEN’T heard before.

You can book a standard room at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and request a “partial” Savanna-view room.

When you check in at the front desk, just ask if there are any partial Savanna-view rooms available.

Of course, they may not always vacant at the time of your stay so this isn’t a foolproof plan — but it’s worth a shot! If you really want that Savannah view, your safest best is to pony up the extra dough and book it.

Disney World Bucket List Hotel Rooms

If you’re driving a car, park close to your room.

Depending on the hotel, this isn’t always possible. Some Disney World hotels are comprised of several separate buildings that can be far away from the main areas of the resort, so parking close to your building is a good idea.

Check out a hotel map at check-in so you know how far away your building is and if you’re able to park your vehicle nearby — this can save you some valuable time! And, if your room isn’t ready, you can always try calling the front desk — they may be able to tell you where you WILL be staying so you can go ahead and park close by.

Why Driving to Disney World May Be Your Best Bet

If you arrive early, check in at the front desk.

Even if you’ve already checked in using the My Disney Experience app, head to the front desk to let them know you’ve arrived.

Often, if the Cast Members know you’re already on the property you have a better chance of getting into your room early. This is also a great opportunity to ask for any upgrades that might be available to you!

The BEST Upgrades You Can Make in Disney World

You can drop your things off if your room isn’t ready.

If your room isn’t ready yet and you’ve got somewhere to be like a dinner reservation or you have a date with the Mouse, just let the front desk know and they can store your items for you!

This can be especially great if you’ve got luggage you don’t want to leave in your car or if you’ve brought groceries that could spoil — they even have cold and frozen storage available for certain items.

What to Pack for Your Disney World Vacation

Check out the activities at your resort.

Sure, you probably know about the major activities like bike and boat rentals, but there are plenty of other relaxing and creative experiences at the resorts as well. You can take painting classes at Coronado Springs, or even paint your own Cinderella Castle at the Grand Floridian!
