Watch a Disney Movie Under the Stars at a Disney Resort

One of the many perks of staying at Disney resorts is being able to watch a Disney movie under the stars.  On most evenings (weather permitting), you can take advantage of seeing a popular Disney movie at the resort’s outdoor theater area.

Sometimes this area is poolside, other times it is outside in an open space near the main lobby.

If you are hoping to catch a Disney movie under the stars on your next stay at Disney World, here is where you can find them.
