    Some of these “good neighbor” Disney hotels tend to be even better than the hotels on Disney property! The pool alone looks like it would be worth it to stay here. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I agree! I used to hate to stay off-site, but now really enjoy it. Most of these hotels are nicer, especially for the price.

  2. Have you ever been to pool at the JW attached to the Ritz? If so, how does the lazy river at Hilton compare?

    1. Hi, I’ve been to the Ritz as a day guest but didn’t walk over to the JW side. The Ritz is a beautiful property and both hotels sit on a gorgeous lake setting. But the Hilton/Waldorf also have a pretty backdrop.

  3. Thank you for all the content, it is very helpful as I plan our WDW trips. I am trying to use Amex points for a trip which means I need to pick a non-Disney hotel. For young kids (2 & 5), which is the best non-Disney resort for kids with transportation to the Parks? I was thinking between Signia and Wyndham Grand, but don’t know the other options well either.

    My kids love zero-entry pools, splash pads, and any activity areas/playgrounds. They are spoiled and we usually stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge which is very kid friendly. Thanks!

    1. Both of these hotels you’ve mentioned are great options. There is more to do (larger grounds to explore) at Wyndham. The hotels are across the street from each other. I also like the Swan and Dolphin because they are on property. Not sure if you can use your points there or not.
