Where in the (Walt Disney) World Wednesday-Movies Under the Stars

This week our "where" for Where in the WDW is all over property at each resort. As cast members, there's always a plethora of fun free things to do on property and this was one of my favorites. A bunch of us would head over to one of the resorts and watch whichever Disney movie was playing that night--us and all the kids.

Movies Under the Stars can be found in your recreation guide when you check in and is typically listed under children's activities (but everyone's a kid at Disney, right?). Each night of the week a different animated film is shown on a large blow up screen outside at every resort. The movie may not be the same at every resort though so you can pick and choose where you want to go/what you want to watch.

My favorite place to watch movies under the stars is at the Polynesian Resort. Not only do you get to watch a movie on the beach, when the movie is finished the music for Wishes is piped in and you have a front row seat for the fireworks. 

Other resorts such as Yacht/Beach Club, Wilderness Lodge, etc also host a campfire before the movies as well. Smores, and a Disney classic?! Sign me up. 

If you're ever looking for something low key to do at night after pounding the parks all day, this is a great option. 

QOTD: Have you ever watched movies under the stars during your WDW stay?

Also, a big thank you to Lauren at Lauren's Glass Slipper for nominating us for a Liebster Award! We'll get working on those questions and have a post for you tomorrow!



  1. You are very welcome for the nomination :0)

    I had no idea you are/were a cast member!! That is awesome! I have never watched a Disney movie at our hotel, but that sounds so fun, especially at the Poly!

    1. I was part of the college program from 2011-2012. Disney was my first "real" job after graduation college, because how can working for Disney be classified as work?!

  2. I have seen this happening a few times before as we walked by ( usually coming back from a park) but never got to participate in watching it. One of these nights we will have a relaxing evening at the resort!

    1. I highly suggest it! Especially the movies on the beach where you can wiggle your toes in the sand while you watch :)
