Chip’s Tips: All of the resorts mentioned show a different movie every night so please check with the resort for showtime and title. Most times if you head to concierge desk they can make a few calls for you. There are also websites that list out all the movies ahead of time.
One common misconception is that you need to be staying at the resort to enjoy these movies. If the guards let you in you can go and enjoy the movie with everyone else with no questions asked.
So grab a snack, a drink, and a blanket and enjoy a Outdoor Disney Movie under the stars.
