On Site Fastapss+


#1

I am taking a trip to Disney World June 8. I am debating between staying on site or off site. I found an awesome rate at the Waldorf Astoria, to the point where it is the same cost as a value resort. However Pandora is something I really want to do and get fastpasses for since I have never been to Animal Kingdom. Therefore should I stay on site or off site?

Another thought I had was to book a one night stay at the campgrounds and actually stay at the Waldorf, but do you get fast passes or magic bands when you stay there? Also, if I did book a one night stay at the campgrounds, but with a 4 day set of tickets as a package, would I be able to book fast passes 60 days in advance for one day or all four?

Thanks in advance!

I was listening to a podcast the other day that pointed out the value of an onsite stay: booking Pandora and EMH from 11-1 every night.

If you booked a campsite you would be able to book FPs for checkin and check out day.

Are you flying? Did you also consider the value of no resorts fees and DME?
