Walt Disney World Resort is now accepting bookings for hotel rooms and theme park tickets for stays from January to October 2025, starting February 27, 2024. With over 25 resorts to choose from, guests have the option to book value, moderate or deluxe accommodations. As a new perk, guests who stay at a Disney Resort hotel can enjoy admission to one of our water parks on their check-in day, which is included in their stay. With big thrills, lazy rivers, wave pools, interactive play areas for younger kids, and water slides for the whole family, the fun can start on day one at a water park. Guests are advised to check the water park operating hours closer to 2025 arrivals.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park provides guests with an array of arctic adventures amid the warm climate in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Guests experienced the new touches from the Walt Disney Animation Studios film Frozen inside Tikes Peak, as well as plenty of mouthwatering culinary creations and popular polar attractions (Amy Smith, photographer).

Here are the benefits of staying at a Disney Resort Hotel:

  • Proximity to theme parks that cannot be matched
  • Complimentary transportation options such as buses, boats, monorails, and Disney Skyliner for easy access to any location
  • Extra time in the theme parks with 30 minutes of early theme park entry
  • Extended evening hours at select parks for those staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts or Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts
  • Dining reservations for the entire stay, up to a 10-night stay, can be made 60 days before the first day of the vacation
  • Disney Family Wellness offers many recreation and fitness activities, including dancing to Disney songs, family fun walks, and even pickleball!

MagicBands allows guests to enter the theme parks, unlock their Disney Resort hotel room, link Disney PhotoPass photos, make purchases, and more – all with a simple tap of their band. Disney Resort hotel guests can purchase a MagicBand+ at a discounted price before their stay.

There are many ways to experience the feeling of a Disney Thrill across the Walt Disney World Resort. Whether trying a new attraction, meeting a favorite Disney Character face to face, eating a classic Disney snack, or ending the night with a nighttime spectacular, there is something to thrill the whole family. In Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, guests can experience the thrill of the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool. (DISNEY)

Please note that for 2025 arrivals, room-only reservations can be canceled without penalty until 8 days prior to arrival. And, for those interested, great deals are available for 2024 Disney Resort hotel stays and theme park tickets.
