Downtown Disney Hotels have the convenience of being on Disney property without breaking the bank! These seven hotels near Disney World are ideally located for visiting Disney World theme parks.

These hotels near Disney World have many benefits of being on-site without paying the extra high rates of the Disney owned resort hotels.

Disney resort hotels are owned and operated by Disney, the Downtown Disney Hotels are not.
