Looking for a little more space on your next Disney vacation? Disney announced that guests can book rental cottages at the Margaritaville resort through Disney!
The cottages at Margaritaville range from 2 to 5 bedrooms and include daily housekeeping. Each cottage has a full kitchen, washer and dryer and are pet-friendly. Because the cottages are privately owned, amenities vary. Some include a private pool or spa.
Margaritaville is very close to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the resort offers transportation to the Ticket and Transportation Center, where guests can use Disney transportation to access other parks.
Tip: walk to Disney’s Polynesian Resort from the TTC and access resort buses to Animal Kingdom, Hollywood or Disney Springs. Also consider taking Lyft or getting a rental car.
The Margaritaville resort has many amenities and restaurants within walking distance. Guests staying in the cottage can use the fitness center and pools but will not have access to Island H2O Live Water park without purchasing admission.
My son and husband are Passholders there, and my son loves the “internet” theme and many of the slides. I would have a pass, but the two times they went I was taking some rest time.
Based on his level of excitement about the park, I am sure I will be checking it out soon!
Both times they were there in August 2019 it was not well attended. The lifeguards remembered them by name.
The cottages are well-appointed with Ethan Allen furniture and hardwood floors.
If you’re interested in booking through Disney, you must book by phone. Guests selecting this option will not receive onsite benefits such as Extra Magic Hours or 60-day FastPass booking. There are some offsite hotels that offer 60-day booking and Extra Magic Hours.
What do you think? Ready to bring the whole family (including pets!) to this resort? Or still planning to stay onsite for the perks?
