My boyfriend and I will be going to WDW for the first time at the end of February. What are the best hotels to stay in that are on property and have easy access to the parks? Did a little bit of looking at the Disney hotels but am somewhat confused as to where they are located. We both will be upgrading our DL Premium APs to Premier APs which is why we're looking to stay on property.

Hello! Welcome to MW!:) well, there are alot of Resorts that are close to the parks. Like, if you want to be close to the Magic Kingdom park, there is The Contemporary Resort literally right next to it. That is a deluxe resort. Most of the Deluxe Resorts will all be in close proximity to one or more of the parks. The Grand Floridian is just a boat ride away from Magic Kingdom too. What you can do to check where all of the Resorts are on property, is just go to Walt Disney World.com, click on the resort you might be interested in, and on the sidebar to your right there should be a place where it tells you which park that specific resort is located. Hope that helped? If you have any more q's just ask:) oh, and you first might wanna narrow down which category of resorts you want: value, moderate, deluxe... - DesiBelle9  25.5 #131 7:37AM
Oops, sorry! Though you were new to MW, lol:) - DesiBelle9  25.5 #131 7:40AM
Are you looking for deluxe, moderate, or value resorts? - Schramke  411.0 #15 7:31AM
DesiBelle9 is correct. Any of the Deluxe resorts neat MK are worth staying at for that reason. GF and Polynesian are good choices. Contemporary is actually am older resort but it's very close to MK and the monorail gives you easy access to Epcot. Dolphin and Swan provide boat rides for easy access. Polynesian is my vote if you are looking for a great theme and easy access to MK. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #17 7:53AM
We prefer the Boardwalk. From there you can easily walk or boat to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. If you get a garden view room, it's quiet!! Unlike the Contemporary which gets very loud very early! For others we like Port Orleans and for value the Pop! - mkigos  44.7 #98 8:07AM
Yes it is all a matter of where you would like to stay and what you are accustomed to. We like the valu because we are never in our rooms. They are smaller in size but we only shower and sleep there. We have stayed at moderate and akl. Each stage of hotels offers something different and they are larger. They all have easy access to parks via Disney transportation. Once you are on property you never have to get in your car if you don't want to. Time to parks if you stay in valu can be any where from 10min to go to 20min if you are going to MK. Everything is really close. Enjoy your planning - mmddgp  375.9 #18 8:09AM
I would say swan, dolphin or boardwalk...boat ride to Epcot and Hollywood studios...we usually stay at the dolphin resort... - islandgirl58  251.7 #25 9:12AM
Oh wow. Thanks everyone. I had no idea there was such a thing as deluxe, moderate or value hotel. When my bf and I go to DL we always stay at Hampton Inns so planning on where to stay for WDW is going to be a brand new experience for us. Thank goodness we still have more than six months to plan this trip. - KermitFan13  643.1 #249 9:45PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  10.0 #8945 3:57PM
