Is There Really Free Wi-Fi At Walt Disney World?

So many of us are wired all the time through computers at work, laptops, smart phones, tablets and iPods.  Many of us depend on this technology on a daily basis- even while on vacation.  We want to check our email from work to make sure we’re not missing out on anything.  We want to check our stocks.  We want to update our Facebook status and tweet where we are and what we are eating.  Many of us want to update our blogs while on vacation- especially a Disney blog while on a Disney vacation!

So, what are we to do while we’re on vacation?  Pay the price per day to “rent” the internet cable in the room?  Visit the “business center” at the hotel and hope to get a vacant computer or pay the fee to use it?  Well at Walt Disney World there are now more options for people who use a laptop, smart phone or tablet to connect with the world.

While I was at Disney World a few weeks ago, I brought my laptop with me for one purpose- to dump my pictures each night!  I had no intentions of getting online, checking email or updating any statuses.  On the 5th night of our vacation, I realized I had free Wi-Fi (wireless internet connection) in our room at Port Orleans French Quarter!  I had no idea.  Then I started paying closer attention on my iPhone to places that asked me if I wanted to “join” their Wi-Fi service.  Through my own experiences and a few searches on the internet, this is what I have found to answer the question:

Is there really free Wi-Fi at Walt Disney World?

Most of the Moderate and Deluxe Resorts now have FREE Wi-Fi in various public areas, such as the lobby, bus stops and main pool deck. In addition, Disney now offers FREE Wi-Fi in guest rooms at select resort hotels where they have discontinued the “wired” internet option.

Disney is working on adding Wi-Fi to the other hotels on property, but no completion dates have been announced.  The resorts who do not offer Wi-Fi still have wired internet as an option in their rooms for a fee of $9.95 for 24 hours.

Other areas on property that have free Wi-Fi available are:

  • Magic Kingdom, City Hall
  • Epcot, Futureworld at Innoventions East (I couldn’t tell at Innoventions West)
  • Epcot, Lotus Blossom Cafe, stronger signal in the back
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios, near the Sorcerer’s Hat
  • Boardwalk, boat dock area
  • Downtown Disney: DisneyQuest, Wolfgang Pucks Express,Sosa Family Cigar Co., and House of Blues
  • Disney’s Wide World of Sports, All Star Cafe and gift shops

So bring your laptops, and other electronic devices with you! All you need now is a place to stay charged!

  1. If you have a Rayovac Mobile Power Pack you don’t even need to find a place to charge your phone or iPod.

  2. We were just at Coronado Springs a little over a week ago and the wifi in the guest rooms wasn’t very strong. We took along our Mifi device and ended up using it more than the free wifi. It was much stronger near the lobby and the pool. I don’t think I would plan to work or do too much on a laptop over free Wifi if you can help it.
