A huge thank you to our friends at Walt Disney World® Resort for inviting us to a recent Media Familiarization Trip and for sponsoring this content. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own. From Disney’s Magical Express to Extra Magic Hours, we’re sharing 10 Reasons to Stay at Walt Disney World® Resort!
5. Dining. There’s nothing quite like dining at Disney. And the Walt Disney World® Resort hotels are no exception! Here are a few highlights from our recent vacation:
At Disney’s Art of Animation Resort kids of all ages can make a splash at the “Big Blue” pool — centerpiece of the resort — and the largest resort swimming pool at Walt Disney World Resort measuring 11,859 square feet. Guests will feel like they are swimming with Dory and Nemo as underwater speakers periodically pipe in music and messages from film characters.
7. Activities. Outside of just enjoying the outdoor spaces at each Walt Disney World® hotel, there are a number of activities that guests can enjoy! Here are a few examples:
At Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, kids can enjoy the daily character artist in the “Finding Nemo” lobby, plus bingo, hula hoop contests, ping pong and nighttime movies, all poolside.
8. Shopping. Another benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World® hotel is the shopping! Sure, there are plenty of places to shop in the theme parks, but I don’t know about you, but I like to dedicate specific time to shopping for our souvenirs. I love having access to much of the same products that are available in the theme parks and even MORE options than are in the parks AND being just around the corner from our room so we can drop things off. Then there is always that last-minute gift or trinket you forgot…you can hit up the shops like we do right before getting back on Disney’s Magical Express to head home!
So there you have it – our 10 Reasons to Stay at Walt Disney World® Resort! And if we haven’t convinced you by now that you should stay, I’m not sure what will! I know for our family, there’s no where else we’d rather be. I hope our reasons and experiences will help you plan your next Disney vacation!
