Margaritaville Resort Orlando is now officially a member of the Disney Good Neighbor Hotel Program. What does this mean? It means you can stay off property (save a little money) but still get some great perks through Disney World!

More about Margaritaville

This resort has everything! If you plan a Disney Vacation with a stay at Margaritaville, I highly suggest adding a day or two to hang at the resort. There are 4 onsite restaurants, lagoon-style pools, a spa, kids club, Sunset Walk (shopping, dining and entertainment district), and a water park (additional ticket required).

What Makes a Hotel a Disney Good Neighbor Hotel?

Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotels are highly ranked hotels. They are AAA approved, meet Disney’s standards for quality and service, have a Disney Guest Services desk in the lobby, and are close to the parks.

Pros and Cons of Staying at a Good Neighbor Hotel

The pros:

  • the rooms are usually less expensive than similar rooms at Disney World resorts
  • You can still book FastPass+ selections 60 days before check in
  • Some offer a Quick Service Dining Card to save a little money on meals in the parks

The cons:

  • You cannot add a Disney Dining Plan to your vacation package
  • Not all Good Neighbor Hotels have free transportation to the Disney parks
  • You leave the magic when you leave the parks

I’m not a big fan of staying off property. I love the continuation of Disney magic from the parks to the hotels. But I also know that sometimes your budget doesn’t allow for a Disney Resort stay. Disney Good Neighbor Hotels are definitely your next best bet!
