Any tips for Disney World resort hopping?
by Christina R.
Long time no see, right? So in my upcoming 5 day trip to Walt Disney World in September, my Thursday is meant to be a day of relaxation and I have some time to kill that day. I'm thinking of going Disney World resort hopping and wonder if you have any tips.
I'm not going to go pool hopping because that's really not my style, I just want to go into the lobbies and maybe check out some of the resort restaurants etc. This is probably the easiest way to figure out where I want to stay next, because pictures don't do some places justice.
Have you ever done this before and do you have any suggestions as to how to most efficiently get around? Bus, car, monorail? Maybe walking but I don't think I'm that ambitious.
Thanks as always, Dad.

Dad's the Deluxe Resort shuffle Answer
Why, yes, of course Dad has tips for Disney World resort hopping. It's a great way to spend an hour or two especially at Christmas time.
The good news is it's pretty easy to see most of the Disney Deluxe Resorts. Most are grouped together. (Except for the Animal Kingdom Lodge which is anti-social and stays off by itself.)
The first and easiest way to resort hop is to visit take the Resort Monorail to the hotels on the Monorail. These are the best of the Disney Deluxe Hotels.
Christina, Disney World resort hopping is a great way to spend some extra time. (Make sure to take lots of pictures.) It's fun to see how each resort has it's own character. I like dreaming about staying in them especially the one closest to the Transportation and Ticket Center.
