    We are going to WDW for our son's 1st bday on March7. We have annual weekday passes. I don't know if we should stay on property or off. We can't spend more than $150 for a room. Since we have passes, what advantages are there to staying on Disney property?

    Hello Stephanie,

    Taking your one year old to Walt Disney World (WDW) for his birthday is a memory you will keep for a lifetime.

    There are many advantages to staying at the WDW resorts. The theming of the WDW resorts vary from Value to Deluxe but they are all distinctly Disney and you cannot get that anywhere else.

    Some other benefits to staying at the WDW resorts... If you are flying into Orlando International Airport, you are able to take the complimentary Magical Express bus from the airport to your resort. You will also be able to take the Disney Transportation system throughout WDW. If you are driving to your resort, you will receive a parking pass for the duration of your stay which allows you to park at the theme parks and other resorts free of charge.

    As a WDW resort guest, you will also have access to the Extra Magic Hours privilege where during your stay certain theme parks will be open either early or later than usual specifically for those guests staying at the resorts. It's really nice to be able to stay in a theme park a few hours later than the general public.

    Take a look at the Walt Disney World Specials site as there is a special offer for the dates that you are wanting to visit. Thank you so much for asking the Moms Panel! If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to us! we are always here to help you out!
