Mom Shares Her Top 3 Hotels That Aren't on 'Disney' Property and We're So In

You can score some great deals here!

There's no vacation quite like a Disney vacation... but there's also no vacation that empties out our wallets like a Disney vacation does. There's transportation, lodging, food, park tickets, and shopping to account for — and if you decide to stay on Disney property, the costs can certainly add up quick. Fortunately, there are ways to save money and stick to your budget, and picking the right hotel is a great way to cut a big chunk off the grand total.

Case in point: This TikTok video from @mommysdisneymagic. Staying in an official Disney hotel is fun, but it's not necessary to have an awesome vacation, and this mom and travel agent is sharing her best hotels near Disney World where you can save a buck.

There are a few different hotels on her list, and they're all clean, in close proximity to Disney, and some of them even come with fun perks like shuttles to the parks so you can avoid renting a car or driving at the end of a long (and very hot) day. 

There's the Drury Inn, which is a 5-10 minute walk to Disney Springs and is a brand new hotel opening soon that serves free breakfast. Then, there's the Hilton Buena Vista Palace, which is also in Disney Springs and even has a lazy river for guests to enjoy. The third hotel she recommended was the Disney Swan and Dolphin, where guests can use their Marriott points and even walk to Epcot.

We'll definitely have to consider these next time we're planning a trip. Disney and "deals" don't always go hand in hand, but these tips are gold.
