List of Official Disney Hotels at Disney Parks and Resorts

It’s extremely difficult, perhaps even impossible, to see everything a Disney theme park has to offer in a single day. Some guests may just visit specific attractions or areas to save time, but those ready to tour it all might consider spending a night or two nearby. That’s where the on-site hotels come in.

Hotel accommodations around Disney Parks and Resorts are either officially owned by the company or not. Here is the first installment of a list of all Disney-owned hotels in their theme parks around the world. We’ll cover two theme park complexes to start.
