When it comes to choosing between Walt Disney World Resort in Florida's multitude of affordable and luxury hotels, one thing’s for sure, you won’t have ever experienced a hotel like these.
For a fully immersive experience, book yourself into Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. It's just like being in the jungle (if the jungle had room service): at this safari-themed lodge, you’re surrounded by animals. Book early and secure a room overlooking the Savannah.
Live out your favourite Disney movie with Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. Themed areas bring the films to life, with rooms inspired by The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo and Cars. The main swimming pool is the perfect place to cool off, while the themed food court means even breakfast has a touch of Disney.
If you’re looking for a hotel with an island vibe, check into Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. This tropical-style hotel has just a hint of Mickey. Relax on your balcony in one of the colonial-style rooms or enjoy the authentic bazaar for a truly Caribbean experience.
Think Walt Disney World Resort is only about the rides? Think again. You can spend days strolling the streets and browsing the shops that each park has to offer (so you can stock up on your fair share of Mickey-themed gifts).
You’ll find souvenirs everywhere you look, but try The Emporium on Main Street. This picturesque stretch has Cinderella’s Castle at the end. Here, you’ll find everything from stuffed toys to Mickey ears and personalised treats.
Shop all around the world without ever leaving the park at Epcot's World Showcase. Featuring 11 pavilions each dedicated to a different country, you can be in Italy one minute and China the next. Be sure to check out Plaza de los Amigos, you’ll be blown away by the attention to detail at the Mexican market.
Disney Springs is a great way to spend a day without even going into the parks. Here, you’ll find high street brands as well as the largest Disney Store on the planet – World of Disney.
Just in case Walt Disney World Resort in Florida wasn’t magical enough, they have a shop where it’s Christmas all year round. Disney’s Days of Christmasis a grotto of festive fun with all your favourite characters – tick off your present list and don’t miss your photo op with Goofy at the exit.
Once you’ve wandered around the boulevards, tried out the rides and maybe taken in a show, you’re going to be ready to get stuck into a Disney-style buffet or sit-down dining experience. The resort has no shortage of cuisines from all over the world, and each restaurant has its own personality.
If you’re celebrating something at Walt Disney World Resort, Florida, there are lots of fine dining options to choose from.

For an immersive dining experience, head to Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom park. This magical restaurant is a replica of the Beast’s castle with different rooms to take a look at and eat in – watch out, you might just spot the beast himself...
If you like music with your food, try Bongo’s Cuban Café at Disney Springs. This eating spot serves up lively Cuban rhythms alongside delicious local dishes – the guava ribs are a must try for fans of the Caribbean.

For a heart-pumping thrill and a great view of the castle, head to Splash Mountain in Magic Kingdom Park. Use one of your allocated Disney FastPass+reservations to jump the queue and get wet faster.
If you liked Thunder Mountain in Magic Kingdom Park, you’ll love Expedition Everest in Disney’sAnimal Kingdom Theme Park. It’s the roller coaster’s faster, bigger (and scarier) older brother.
Star Tours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios gives Star Wars fans the chance to mix with the heroes of the new film. This simulator ride is family friendly and situated indoors, providing some time out of the midday sun. Younger visitors can hone their lightsaber skills at the Jedi Academy – and may even come face-to-face with a real-life villain to use them on.
Ramp up the scare factor at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, also at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This is a slightly terrifying, very nostalgic ride that adults will get a thrill out of. The experience changes each time so adrenaline junkies might want to go again and again (and again).

If your holiday is going ahead as planned, you can continue to pay for your holiday in Manage my booking, even if travelling in less than 12 weeks. If you’re unsure, you can delay any additional payments by choosing a new time to travel by requesting a call back in Manage My booking for one of our team to look at options. If your holiday is more than 6 months away, you may wish to set up a Direct Debit to spread the cost. This can be arranged whilst rebooking or afterwards in Manage my booking.

Log in to Manage my booking to request a call back to amend your holiday. Please bear in mind we’ll work through requests in departure date order so may take longer than usual for us to get back to you
Payments are being prioritised based on when the request was made, working in order from March 2020 onwards. We will always try to process refunds at the earliest opportunity, for requests before August our maximum timeframe is 120 days. As we are steadily reducing the maximum processing time for each new request, for refund requests made in August, we expect the maximum processing time to be 80 days, from the date the refund is requested. For those requesting a refund in September, we expect it to be processed within a maximum of 60 days, and then reduce to 30 days for refunds requested in October, before returning to normal levels.
To finalise the amendment, one of our customer advisors will phone you. We need to work through amend requests in departure date order so we can prioritise those with the most imminent travel plans, so you may have a longer wait than usual until we’re able to ring you back. We will help everyone that wants to move their holiday.
