    Hotel at MCO, help!

    I just want to clarify...the Magical Express does not go to Port Canaveral. It goes to Disney’s resorts at WDW. They won’t let you board a ME bus without a Disney resort reservation, so there’s no chance of you accidentally going to the wrong place, but I don’t want you to waste time going to...

    Disneyworld vs. Land!?!

    Since this isn’t specific to WDW resorts, and I don’t think many Disneyland regulars hang out here, I’ll move it to the Community board so you get a broader audience. :thumbsup2

    Where to stay on arrival night?

    Yep, that’s how I discovered the Hyatt, too. Delayed flight out of Philly, arrived at MCO hours late. It was pure joy to just walk right into the hotel from the terminal and collapse. At the time, it felt like the most comfortable bed in the world. :) And so great to arrive at WDW well-rested...

    Pay to park at resorts if visiting?

    No, there’s no charge for self-parking at Disney resorts. Some resorts offer valet parking (AKL does, FW does not), and there is a charge for that if you wish to use it.

    Where to stay on arrival night?

    The occupancy limit for a standard value room is 4 persons plus one child under the age of 3. Disney takes room occupancy seriously, and does not make exceptions, even for just one night. I’ll also remind everyone that discussion of ways to break Disney’s rules is not permitted on the...

    TP Room Requests - minimize your chance of an upgrade?

    Most upgrades happen because the resort needs you out of the room they would have put you in, for the range of dates you happen to have booked. It's pure luck, and whether or not you've made requests doesn't really play into it. There isn't much of anything you can do to make an upgrade more or...

    How competitive are DVC rental points in May?

    The rental companies can't really predict how many owners will want to rent out their points from a certain resort. Most DVC owners use their points themselves, and only rent when and if they can't use their points. Many owners have never rented and never will. Many would rather rent privately...

    Can you park (and pay) at S&D for Epcot/DHS?

    I don't know S&D's policy, but at Disney resorts, day visitors may park in a resort's self-parking lot while they are visiting the resort. Once you leave the resort, you are expected to take your car with you. Time restrictions are sometimes enforced, and the resorts have been known to tow cars...

    Current incentive for doing DVC tour?

    You actually do have a guide, they would have assigned you one when your original guide left. You can probably find the name on the member site, or Member Service would be able to look it up for you. If you’re looking for guide recommendations, try posting on our DVC-Member Services board...

    Which hotels are actually at Disney’s Animal Kingdom?

    Just to pull it all together.... There are no resorts inside theme parks at Disney World. Each of Disney's resorts at WDW provides transportation to all of Disney World's theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs. Disney groups their resorts into areas, just to give people a sense of where...

    Highest rack rate per year - do rack rates increase throughout the year? Confused.

    Disney has various "seasons." Many hotels do. They tend to charge more during periods of higher occupancy, like around major holidays, and less during typically slower times. If you were looking at rates during the December holidays, then yes, you would have seen higher prices.

    Parking at other resorts

    Parking is sometimes restricted at the deluxes near theme parks, but she won’t have any trouble at a moderate like CSR, especially since she’s visiting a guest. They’ll probably ask her for a photo ID.
