WDW current benefits of staying onsite

Are there any? I知 just chatting to family about maybe booking for late next year if things improve and I was looking at price differences between staying onsite at WDW or onsite at Universal. Every time we致e been before Disney has won out (EMH, transport, free dining, free memory maker etc) but with most of that gone I知 struggling to see what benefit we would get from spending (on average) an extra 」1000 to stay at Disney over staying at Universal and ubering over to WDW when we needed to. So, are there any benefits to staying in a Disney hotel anymore at the moment? Does it look like any of the previous benefits will be reintroduced anytime soon?

Edited to say that I know answers will probably only be opinion which is fine but just wondering if anyone had heard anything from 叢eople in the know too

Right now I don稚 believe there is, other than maybe location and transport to the parks. I would imagine however that many of the previous perks will return when things start to get back to normal. Otherwise no one will pay those prices to stay onsite.

I would look at the Disney Springs partner hotels. Much cheaper with most of the 叢erks if they return.

The Disneyworld 2021 prices for staying onsite are crazy expensive. The same value resort and same dates for this year compared to next is an other 」700! There's nothing quite like staying inside the Disney bubble and have them take care of you, but boy do you pay for that luxury. Since Bob Chapek came into the company, it's become completely cost prohibitive to stay onsite anymore. We can pay 」400-」500 in a hotel near Disney or spend 」2600 at a Disney Value resort for a two week stay. It's not difficult to see what option we're going for.

The one thing drawing me to staying on site is being guaranteed entry to the parks, not sure I want to take the chance I can稚 get in if I知 travelling all that way.

Staying in a Disney resort doesn稚 guarantee entry. You will have to book your park days like everyone else.

Thanks for the replies. We致e only ever stayed onsite so now is the time to try something different I think. I doubt Disney will worry about me not booking two weeks with them in the grand scheme of things 😊 I値l certainly look at the partner hotels a bit more closely and see what offers other places like Seaworld and Universal are offering

We currently have 5 nights at BC booked for next August and then onto a villa for 14 nights. If the situation remains the same, ie no EMH/ magic bands/ dining plan etc etc, will be very tempted to either try and extend villa stay, or else look elsewhere offsite or maybe even stay at one of the universal hotels instead. Currently the extortionate onsite price doesn稚 really reflect any of the perks which currently is just location and being in 奏he bubble. We moved this stay from this years cancelled hol, if I was booking from scratch I doubt I壇 be looking to stay onsite.

Sorry I should have been clearer. I have an annual pass to use on my next trip which I can only book 3 days at a time for, not something I want to chance if I知 there for 17!
