I am in the initial research stage of a future trip to TDL and was looking at both on site and off site hotels. Ideally I would love to stay on site but the cost of staying at the Mira Costa over the Hilton was double. Do the on site hotels offer any early entry? We would be travelling in August so it will be peak time so early entry would be a big plus. I looked at the on site benifits page and it did not mention this. If staying at the Hilton do you have to buy the monorail pass and is it a far walk to the monorail station from the hotel?
