I have had clients purchase a night stay during their week just to get two days of that free unlimited express pass.

These three resorts also offer some easy and very accessible ways to get to the parks. One of the most common forms of transportation are the water taxis that will take you from the resort straight to the entrance of City Walk. Also, the resorts are with in walking distance to City Walk and the Parks.

A few more perks include priority seating at restaurants along with resort wide charging privileges. When you shop in the parks you can have your purchases delivered back to your resort so you don’t have to worry about lugging them around.
