What is Resort Hopping?

A delightful and often overlooked benefit to staying on Disney property is resort hopping. You don’t need a reservation to resort hop, and it’s free!

One delightful and often overlooked benefit to staying “on property” at Walt Disney World is resort hopping. Yes, you are closer to the parks, and yYes, you can use Disney transporation. But Disney transportation’s biggest benefit is that it gets you through the gates in order to resort hop freely, and at no additional cost. You don’t need a reservation to simply visit a Walt Disney World hotel. (Staying or dining will be separate posts!)

Walt Disney World (or WDW) Resort Hopping is something you can do if you’ve got a few hours to spare, a whole day or even several days. You can make an entire vacation out of resort hopping.

I’ve made entire Disney vacations without setting foot in the parks, because there’s so much to see and do at every Walt Disney World hotel.
