Many Theme Parks and Attractions now offer their own on-site accommodation often with theming to reflect the attraction itself. If you are travelling on a budget then you may prefer to choose a nearby hotel which may require a short drive to the attraction you are visiting. There are also many great self-catering options to choose from if you plan on staying a little longer and exploring the surrounding area.
You will pay a premium for the benefit of being on-site but it does give you the advantage that you can wake up in the morning and take a leisurely stroll directly into the action. The other advantage is that if you are staying 2 nights or more you can also pop back to your room if you want to take some time out to relax. Staying on-site in the heart of the action can change a regular short break into one that you will remember for many years to come.
On-Site Accommodation is often themed to match the experience within the theme park, there are also a number of guest benefits included, these can include free parking, swimming and splash pools, early ride access, free fastpasses, character meet and greets and much more…
