If you’re planning a Disney trip, then obviously you need to book hotel accommodations for your family. Luckily, there are tons of hotels close to the Disney theme parks! Some are even considered “good-neighbor” hotels and offer perks similar to the Disney-owned hotels. Let’s go over some of popular hotels and resorts that are available as options!

Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort

These hotels are separate, but share all amenities. You likely won’t find a better location for a non-Disney-owned hotel. EPCOT and Hollywood Studios are both within walking distance! These hotels also have complimentary boat service to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios and 5 outdoor pools!
