Disney Resorts[edit]

Vacation Club Villas[edit]

Non-Disney Resorts[edit]

The guests at these resorts receive certain perks that guests at Disney-owned resorts but don’t receive perks such as MagicBands.

Walking and boat access to parks[edit]

Guests staying at any of the resorts in the Epcot Resorts Area, except for the Caribbean Beach Resort, have access to the International Gateway, a side entrance to Epcot's World Showcase. The entrance is located directly north of Disney's Beach Club Resort. It is accessible either by walking or by boarding a short Friendship water launch at any of the five resorts or at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The International Gateway entrance offers a full service park entry gate, park exit, ticket windows, locker rentals, wheelchair/stroller rentals, and a gift shop. The International Gateway and canal is located between the United Kingdom and France pavilions.

In addition to the special Epcot entrance, guests at the same resorts also have access to the entrance of Disney's Hollywood Studios by walking or Friendship boat. However, the walking and boating distances from the closest Deluxe Resorts (respectively, Disney's Boardwalk and the Swan and Dolphin) to the park are significantly longer and require walking a road bridge.
