I personally see this question being asked on social media forums, and get asked by customers all the time, so i thought it would be really useful to put it into words, why i would always say if its in budget - stay at Disney!


Staying on site at Disney is obviously more expensive than staying off site on International Drive, as Disney is a premium product, that comes with added benefits.  I thought I would give you the top 5 reasons why you should consider paying the extra to stay in a Walt Disney World hotel for your next trip to Orlando.

Why stay in a Disney Resort Hotel?

I thought I might write a post about my feelings on why you should stay in a Disney Resort hotel!

This is coming from someone who has stayed in a Villa, on International Drive, at Universal and on Disney numerous times.

I think the best thing to do get out the way the fact I’m a Disney nerd, so there may be a slight bit of Bias on here! But I will be speaking from my experiences as a Travel agent also on some of the complaints we have had about various elements of all options!

A Royal Engagement

We recently returned from Orlando where we stayed at Disney World and did an amazing cruise, however I took the opportunity to propose to my partner at Cinderella’s Royal table. For those of you who don’t know that is the most popular restaurant in the world of Walt Disney World. Why? Because its actually in the castle. I booked the meal about 8 months in advance and pre paid for this, it was around $120 for the both of us which I didn’t think was bad considering it’s the most sought after place to eat in Magic Kingdom.

Around 6 months before arrival I got in touch with Disney weddings, honeymoons and engagements and they went through everything with me for the engagement package. All I had to do was give them my dining reservation number, as well as a few personal options and I was all set.

On arrival into the restaurant we had a photo with Cinderella before entering the main restaurant which sits high in the castle with beautiful panoramic views of the park. As we were getting engaged (unknown to my partner) we were seated on a private table with fantastic views of the magic Kingdom and our waiter came over to take our food order.

Doing Disney the right way

Its most families dream to be able to take their children to Florida, and with prices of holidays to Spain becoming increasingly more in costs the difference in cost is becoming minimal. And a LOT of families are beginning to realise a trip to Disney I no longer a dream it can become reality.

Everyones holiday expectations are different, however in my opinion there is only 1 way to do it for the first time. And that’s to stay on site in a Disney Resort hotel.

I have been to Florida many times, ive stayed on International drive, in a villa and on site at Disney. The difference in cost between on site and off site is priceless, and when Disney have their free dining offer it really is an aoutstanding offer. Not only are you getting your food on site (which is renound for being extremely expensive) your also getting a world known Disney hotel with their impeccable service.

Why book Walt Disney World early?

Why Book Early?

I usually get asked,

Why someone would book a holiday to Disney World so far in advance!?’

‘It’s only April 2017, why are you booking for November 2018?’

The Answer is simple, I know what I want, I know how much I am happy to pay, and I just want to know it’s done.

Many people are exactly the same when it comes to booking Walt Disney World holidays.

Disney usually release a FREE DINING offer for the following year around Easter time of the current year, which can save you literally hundreds of pounds!

There are many Disney hotels, all with different themes, so there is a different one to suit everyone’s own needs and tastes! So booking early also gives you the guarantee that you have what you want rather than what everyone else doesn’t!

I would also expect flights to increase between 5-10% year on year, so booking early not only secures me the flights I want, but at a lower booking class so I don’t have to worry constantly about maybe changing the hotel dates etc. just to suit booking flights down the line that have saved me an extra £40pp!

It’s all piece of mind really!

After looking around at LOADS of travel agents, it was clear that Mattie was the only one that we'd want to trust our 'biggest-and-best-trip-yet' to our 'Happly Place' - fantastic service, extremely knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to book with! The guy obviously loves his job, and his enthusiasm shines through.

Rob Morton

Mattie has been fantastic - been to Florida 5 times but always done DIY but not only did he give me an amazing price he's been so helpful with finding hotels and suggestions !! 5 star service deserves a 5 star rating
Thanks Mattie we can't wait to go in 2018 !!!
