Every trip to the mouse house I learn something new. On this Disney World trip I learned a hack about finding the best Disney World Resort Rooms in your booked category. Best of all, it takes no time and costs only $12.
In the past I’ve recommended a $12 Touring Plans annual subscription as a no-brainer investment to save time in the parks. However, on this last trip for Traveling Mom I found it’s good for much more than ride planning. I had input my dates for an upcoming trip and about a month beforehand I received an email from Touring Plans titled “New Alert: Are you staying in a WDW hotel for TMOM?”.
I clicked through the email to my subscription dashboard and found the most wonderful feature. Touring Plans has detailed floor plans of every single Disney World Resort categorized by room type, many with photos. You can search on your booked room type to see Touring Plans suggestions for room requests. Here’s the best part- Touring Plans will fax the room request for you!
By spending 5 minutes with the site I was able to achieve a canal view room at Old Key West. I was booked into a standard room and could have just as easily gotten a parking lot view.
The room in the photo above is the “garden view” at the Grand Floridian. Monorail view for a garden price? I’ll take it!
At Art of Animation I scored a 4th floor lake view. At Sunrise I dragged two chairs out into the hallway and enjoyed the sunrise.
Have you successfully moved up a category to the best Disney World Resort room by letting Touring Plans do the work? I’d love to hear your results in the comments.
