Did you know that complimentary movie screenings are available to Guests of Walt Disney World Resort? That’s right! You and your family can take advantage of Movies Under the Stars at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Additionally, other free nightly entertainment is also available to Guests in the evenings. You can take advantage of campfires, marshmallow roasts, and even a sing-a-long!
Whether you’re sitting poolside or surrounded by the great outdoors, you are sure to enjoy the nightly entertainment. Cozy up for a favorite Disney film shown outside in the fresh evening air, and enjoy delicious roasted marshmallows by the campfire with your family! Both of these amenities are complimentary!
Where do I find this free nightly entertainment?
Movies Under the Stars take place at each onsite resort hotel. There is a designated location at each resort, and Guests are given a packet upon check-in that includes a recreation calendar. Those who have done online check-in and receive a text to skip the front desk won’t receive the packet. You can visit the front desk or concierge desk and, they will provide you with one. Furthermore, they can tell you the exact location of the free nightly entertainment.
At Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, the movies are shown in the courtyard of Old Port Royale where cast members set up the area for the evening. Other resorts, such as Disney’s All Star Sports and Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter hold their movies in grassy areas. Guests at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, along with others, watch their favorite movie poolside. Family fun is had by all Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests!
Campfires & Marshmallow Roasts:

Not all of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels offer campfires and marshmallow roasts. For a complete list of resorts that do, you will find it here. Disney cast members provide marshmallows and roasting sticks.
