Have you planned a last-minute surprise trip to Walt Disney World and discovered that there’s very limited availability at the resort hotel you’d like to book? Or maybe you and your family want to spend your money on experiences in the parks, rather than on your accommodations. Perhaps you and your family are park openers and closers—you get there at rope drop and stay till the Kiss Goodnight, and you see no point in paying for luxuries, décor and services you won’t be using when you’re at your hotel. Whatever the reason, there are many Guests that visit Disney World and don’t stay at a Disney Resort hotel. Instead, they opt for one of the national brand chain hotels because they are nice, they are comfortable, and many offer a good value. Here are ten nice hotels within only a few miles of the parks at Disney that offer visitors quality accommodations at a reasonable price.*
